That's disappointing to hear from a fan. Not liking something you've gone to see is one thing. Assuming you're not going to like it and not going out to try it yourself is another.

The last movie was fun and engaging. I'm not sure what's "not to like" if you are a fan.

I am a huge fan, I just didn't like the movie that much. I even watched it more than once and I just didn't like it. That's just my opinion.

I'm "assuming" I'm not going to like the next one because a) I didn't like the first one. Just like any other movie, if I didn't care for the first movie I'm not going to have an interest in the sequel. b) the trailers are doing nothing to make me want to see the movie. Just like with other movies if the trailer seems appealing to me I wll have an interest in seeing the movie. If it doesn't, then I don't

I won't love a movie simply because it has the words "Star" and "Trek" in the title.  


 


Nowhere and under no circumstances was I asking you to "love" anything. I'm not sure where you saw that. I simply challenge your logic. Claiming to be a "huge fan," yet then refusing to support a production by not even giving it a chance by going to see it once doesn't add up. As a fan, I can't imagine anyone not being curious enough to want to go see a movie in that franchise.


I mean, I'm a CASUAL James Bond fan...and I've seen every James Bond release since "GoldenEye" in the theaters, regardless of the content of the trailers or of how much I enjoyed the last adventure...mainly because, in general, James Bond is cool and worth the small price of a ticket. 


I suppose if your budget is so tight that you can't take that risk, I'd understand. Or, if you're one of those fans who is very particular about the "type" of Star Trek they enjoy (meaning, "I'm a TNG and VOY fan"), then I can get that. But, by definition, that's not a "huge fan." That's someone who has very exclusive tastes related to a particular segment of the franchise.


Or, if you're one of these people that just takes everything SO SERIOUSLY that you can't put yourself through that kind of anguish and pain...and experiencing something that challenges your bounds of what "good Star Trek" is, then I WHOLEHEARTEDLY agree that you should avoid it.

it seems that I've offended you by not wanting to see the movie, I'm sorry about that.


But since I didn't enjoy the first movie, and the trailers for the second movie are doing nothing to make me interested, I won't be seeing the movie. It's not a matter of money, it just simply has not sparked my interest. I gave the first movie a good chance to impress me. I saw it in an Imax theater, a regular theater, and rented the dvd when it came out. I still didn't like it. Since I didn't like it, I have no interest in seeing the sequel.


Let's say that I didn't like the first Lord of the Rings movie, wouldn't it make sense that I would then have no interest in seeing a sequel to that? Why would I want to see a sequel to a movie that I didn't like?


I am a fan of most of the series, I love TOS, TNG, DS9, and VOY, and I liked most of the previous movies. Star Trek gets a lot of support from me. I have dvds of every movie, and every series that's come out, and almost every novel that's come out. I buy collectibles and go to conventions. so yeah, I support Star Trek.


 


I still say the movie is going to make a tremendous amount of money

It takes a lot more than an innocent message board post to "offend" me.  


 


I was simply challenging your thought process. Nothing more, nothing less. There's certainly no need to subject yourself to something you feel there is a good chance you will not enjoy.


 


 


Of course...you never actually know until you try it.

Enjoy the movie when it comes out

Iron Man 2 did better than Iron Man 1 aswell as The Dark Knight did better than Batman Begins and Transformers 2 did better than Transformers 1.

And those were Superhero movies.

STID should do better than ST09.

Same went for Pirates of the Caribbean and its sequels along with The Harry Potter movies and The Lord of the Rings and Twilights.

Apparently, industry analysts are predicting a $90M opening weekend (compared with $70 back in 2009). That would be amazing. If you combine that with a payoff from the intense international marketing they've done...they could get $500M overall.

I do know how "Into Darkness" ends thanks to a review from the Australian Premiere.  I worry how the ending will be received.  It sounds like a great sci-fi JJ Abrams Star Trek flick throughout but I am worried about the ending.  Time will tell.

pffffftt. Don't believe everything you hear. I don't need some disgruntled fans take on what they might or might not have interpreted incorrectly...

Trust me, that absurd ending won't help the movie, seems that Abrams wants to intentionally destroy Trek so he can focus on Star WARS.


Greatness comes to those who really want to do anything to get it.

I'm not reading any of that, or spoiling anything. Plus it's still April... May 17th is a good ways away.

But let's say they do something completely nutty, like kill off Kirk, as in Generations, and all the fans hated it. Why couldn't they just alter the ending like they did with GEN?

Or are "Premiers" too late?

It's over dude face it, they can't change it, this movie can very well end Abrams reign over trek.
