Did you see the film in IMAX, DLP, or at least HD?

Then engine room was very traditional for a ship captain. ¿since it's a space ship in teh future we have no idea what the engine room amy look like. ¿We do know what it looks like after numerous upgrades from watching TOS.

On DLP it looked very cool.

Frankly, no one in the industry knows how to handle the new digital projectors and sound equipment. Ever since all the cinemas in my town went Digital projection, there has been problems, like pink pixels in the picture. And the sound gets so loud the speakers blow out. The main cinema in my town has the biggest screen in the Southeast and the day Star Trek got released the people running the place managed to tear up the cinema. I thought with digital I would get away from some of the problems with 35mm and 70mm, but digital is yet to prove it's worth like on tv, ever since the CW went digital I have nothing but sound problems from the broadcast.

Photoartist - many cinemas did not upgrade their speakers with the digital projectors which is a shame. ¿Many theaters are poor performers. ¿

I saw it in a living room theater, so I kicked back in my recliner (yes a recliner like a lazy-boy but plusher) ordered a burger and beer (yes they have waiters that serve), and watched it on a 70mm dlp with top quality sound and loved it. ¿and all for 8 bucks (not including teh burger and beer). ¿It's too bad more cities have not gotten with the upgrade of theaters.

Well I saw it in a Beacon Theater but the Imax Retrofitted Rooms weren't showing Star Trek(Figures) I believe it was on a DLP system.  Sound was very good but not as good as what I have at home and I did notice the Picture was a bit blurry at times.  I think they have a focus system that is hand calibrated,unsure though.  But it could have been fine and the way they shot the film to look abit out of focus.  Closest Real Imax is too far away to worry about.  I haven't been to the Theater in a long time well since the Dark Knight.  I wait for the movies to come out on BluRay and watch in the comfort of my home theater.  60inch SXRD TV is perfect for a 13X14 room and no screen door/Pixels to worry about.  I can sit anywhere and as close as I like. Anyway may go back and watch again if my Sister and Nephews come down for a visit from up north.  My Sister will not watch anything Trek, maybe she will for this film. but I don't know she can take or leave Star Wars as well.  I highly Enjoyed it either way you watch it.  You know we had a Theater in town from the 70's it was only a Two screen with I think Stereo or Quad Sound, they closed not to long after Dolby Digital and DTS was being introduced into theaters in the 90's.  I watched alot of movies there as a kid,  And we had a Drive In that was torn down as every other drive in around the country has.  I thought about creating a new theater in my city but seeing how theaters are hurting now, I don't know if it would be feasable to open one.
Sorry for the long post.

The Engine room was abit disappointing but if you remember the TOS engine room was really just a large room with what looked like Machinery behind a large Grated wall.  I think it wasn't until the motion picture that we saw Engine rooms like TNG had and of course there after.  Come to thing about it even Enterprise had a Large Warp Drive Reactor in the Middle of the Engine room.  We shall see if it is different in the next Movie.

I saw it in DLP with a top of the line sound system, closest IMAX is a 7 hour drive away in Vancouver... and this movie is not worth my time or money to make the trip.

1st time: normal screen
2nd time: IMAX, middle seat near back row
3rd time: IMAX, near front to the very left

IMAX is HUGE difference. ¿But the third time I was too close and all the shaky movements made me dizzy.

For people who don't think IMAX is a big difference, you probalby saw it in a "fake" IMAX...like a 25 foot screen they call IMAX.  True IMAX is like a 60 ft screen

:sick: I saw it in (probably fake) IMAX.  What rumble seats?  One thing that did bug me about the big screen is that the shaky camera handling (can't anyone invest in a steadycam or image stabilization software?  fire the editor) was making me queasy.   As an aside, Cloverfield made me leave the theater half way through.  Had to listen to the rest of the movie with my head between my legs in the hallway outside.  if anyone from the motion picture industry is reading this:  Shoot anyone who suggests that hand carrying effects make for a better movie.

that aside:

Why was water considered an "inert material" (read that on the pipe)?  It's a universal solvent and can under the right conditions (which would probably be more likely in a room with high voltage and potential antimatter leakage) ignite.  Also, they took great pains in order to make the rest of the ship shiny and clean...why not the engine room?

It is odd that people keep saying shaky cam because I have seen it twice now in DLP -living room and IMAX and there was no shaky cam.  ODD?

They do it on purpose. It's a SteadyCam hooked up to a computer programme designed to simulate the shaking you'd get if they were a documentary crew following a reality TV star around.

You haven't been paying attention. It's used in several scenes.

I guess I didn't even notice it.  I figure if its like a news cam then its not shaky, but moving because someone is holding it.  I consider shaky like a cam that would make you dizzy or bourne identity dizzy and I didn't see anything like that.
