Actually it is quite funny how you manage to turn every productive discussion into a flame war... I give you credit for that...

It is also quite funny how you manage to turn every productive discussion into a "Bash Trek 11 Fest" and cry that you are getting picked on.

It is called discussion. Raising questions about a topic, getting to know the other perspective. I find it extremly interesting what other people think about films, books etc.

This does not mean that I will make up my mind on the majority, and discussion also means to have a position.

I hate to repeat myself, I respect and accept your love for this film, I simply do not share it this is all...

All I (and the other people who simply were not able to enjoy this film - at least I guess I can speak for them) am asking is the mutual share of respect and acceptance...

Let's discuss it, without insulting eachother. Okay?

Wow! I'm scared to post now! LOL

Like most films, there were some things I liked and some things I didn't.
I liked the mere fact that they did another TOS film. It was great to see my favorite characters on the big screen, and I loved the little treats they put in for us TOS fans (the ship being named Kelvin, for example).
I liked the way the film looked, visually. I thought the overall look and use of color, light, etc was stunning.
I love Leonard Nimoy, and was thrilled that he was in the film. There is absolutely no common sense where this is concerned. I could watch him read the phone book.

I really didn't care much for the Spock/Uhura pairing at first, but it's grown on me a bit since the first time I saw the film.
I didn't like the lack of Scotty, or the fact that he was used solely for comic relief (and I really didn't like his little alien friend--he annoyed me).

I have mixed feelings regarding the villain. I loved how heartbreaking his story was. He was vindictive, sadistic, and pitiable simultaneously, which would have been great had his character been explored a little more. However, I have to wonder why he didn't warn the Romulan people of the upcoming disaster. Admittedly, time travel stories sometimes confuse me, so please tell me if I missed his reasoning for NOT doing this (was is no longer necessary?).

Overall, I liked it well enough, and I'm looking forward to the DVD. I'm nearly finished with the book, and I'm hoping some of the parts in the book will be among the deleted scenes.
