Four years and this is the best they could come up with ?
After all the promises of NEW, ORIGINAL stories? We're just going to get fed a diet of re-hashed old movies and TOS episodes?
BLEH, and shame on J.J. Adams and Co.
ALL YOU STAR WARS PEEPS ARE NEXT !!! hahahaha

Loved, loved, the movie! I think the reboot of bringing back Kahn who was a great villain and swapping the story line was genius! All of the characters made me laugh except of course the villain. Great character interaction and incorporation of how Carol Marcus and Kirk meant. Only weakness was too many ship breakdowns. Glad to see the saga continue!

I would love to drop an awesome quote from the original movies but doing so might spoil the fun for those going to see this film. The IMAX 3D was great! I usually skip 3D movies as they make me sick, but this one didn't.

We went to the Fan Sneak, and the camaraderie with fellow Trekies was awesome! One young man said, "This room is great! I've never been with so many people like me!" The anticipation was high, and we were not disappointed! I have finally accepted Zachary Quinto as Spock (although we do get to see Leonard Nimoy a couple of times), and his acting was superb (and the boy can run!). Sulu surfaced as a great character as well, as did Scotty. Bones deadpanned his typical, "I'm a doctor, man, not a (fill in the blank)." The special effects were astounding, and I have a new favorite scene when the Enterprise rises out of the ---- don't want to spoil it for you, so you'd better go see it this weekend!!

I bought tickets a month ago and counting the days until last night's 8pm showing. I'm so glad I went! The 3D effects were great (could have been a little bit better, only one of the spears at the beginning flew past me & actually made me jump a little), the story although redone from the original series, was good & suspenseful. Although the fully seated theater was evacuated for a tornado warning half-way through, I enjoyed it!
I did find the radiation scene (reversed from the Wrath of Khan) a bit much though, about half the dialogue was the same from the previous movie, and Spock yelling KHAN! was over the top (not in a good way). However, I still give this a thumbs up and a "must go" rating. I plan to go again to see it while it's in theaters.
