Let's face it, this nut-fest movie from the untalented JJ Abrams is the surprise hit of the year,
But clearly this film isen't a hit with some of us fans..
Many times Abrams slap Loyalist and purist in the face claiming the movie isen't for us, "This movie isen't for fans of Star Trek."
but he's right, this lame movie isen't for us, he turned Star Trek into a immature, LOUD silly joy ride with no real story or substance, just glitter,

Showing no appreciation for the brilliant TOS whatsoever
turning Kirk and Spock into two manneqiuns with no personality..

Making Chekov into a silly annoying boy, who shouldn't be no where near a Flagship.

Turning a dignified women like Uhura into a desperate, irritating go getter.

Not to mention the horrendous new versions of Engineering, the Bridge and the Enterprise itself, clearly and insult to Matt Jefferies.

And those STUPID belts they got to carry the Phaser and communicator, Roddenberry would NEVER allowed that stupidity,

Those are just a few, I know many purist has problems with this overrated movie,
so express it here,
but be kind, JJ Abrams or some of his lackeys might be reading this and who knows we might give them good advice !

Only those who have a gripe about this dumb movie comment..  ;)

The only thing about the new Enterprise that I don't like is Engineering. I wish they had done it kinda like Engineering in The Motion Picture.

I have to agree with that.

The story (oh story, where were you).

Quite surprisingly the cast or redesign did not bother me that much. If the movie actually had a story (not that line up of SFX and action scenes) it might have even turned out decent.

But as it stands...  :sick:

IMO

LoL Did you really have to start ANOTHER thread about this dead horse?

P.S. i find it ironic how the haters play the "You're trying to silence the dissent" card and the biggest hater of them all says im not allowed to comment because i liked the movie. Food for thought.

And for someone who supposedly hates JJ Abrams DJ loves to mention him in every thread he posts. I think he is obsessed with him!

I'd rather the movie had been created the way Star Trek Phase II has.

The movie has so many things wrong with it you make a book!

Agreed, and what about the horrible job they did with Quinto's Spock, he's soft spoken and  confused
you wouldn't believe he's a Commander,
and dosen't Vulcans have a gold yellow skin color, the Spock in the movie had a california sun tan,
and Vulcan's suppose to have green blood, I  remember his blood being pretty red when he got into a fight as a kid and was bleeding..
This movie sure disgraces TOS.

I voted the iBridge, where are my :cool:  But also Engineering was just lame.

Other than those two things I loved this shambolic pile of love and silliness, it had everything else I love about Star Trek
