This is just my opinion of the movies. I like the movie just as a movie, I don't like it as a star trek movie.


In other words its a good action movie, but its not "star trek" if you know what I mean

I like the new movies, but as I have stated many times now, I don't like them in the same way. I see everything 1966-2005 as "Classic Star Trek" and 2009 and beyond as "New Age Trek" Or simply as a remake. I don't think it's bad, but it's definitely not the classics. But I really enjoy Into Darkness.

For me the Abrams Trek films are an opportunity to pass on the vision Gene Roddenberry had for the future.

I was born in 1959 and when I was a little kid what I wished for was to see the future. That was it. Not a fireman or a ballerina but to see the amazing world that humanity was imagining.
The year 2000 was synonymous with the pinnacle human aspirations.

Then the year 2000 arrived and people seemed to stop talking about the future.

I enjoyed the films plot holes and all. But I'm hoping the diehard fans will regulate their understandable emotional intensity and school the newbies about Star Trek without a lot of Abrams bashing.

It's important to have the fandom be heard but to me a rhetoric of rage seems as satisfying as it is counter productive.
Perhaps for the good of the many it's time to calm down and start having fun with the universe Mr. Roddenberry and the writers left us.

I like the new Star Trek movies very well and too am choosing to enjoy them.  I really liked the Star Trek 2009; of the last 2 that one is my favorite.Like many of the films and Star Trek stories, they do convey a message of hope and optimism for the future. I really like that. I also am a long time fan of Star Trek

The ReBoot series has not gone far enough astray
from formula to truly say that it's so wildly
different from the STAR TREK we knew. In particular,
it hasn't pushed story-telling, at all, in terms of
anything else HOLLYWOOD's come up with. BUT ...


On its own terms, it's very well-acted, surprisingly.
The CGI nature of the majority of the effects is too
apparent, at times, but tend to be the most cutting-edge
aspect of the new movies. And the characters are no more
or less shallow than what was found in the original series.
The 80's TOS movies seemed to do alot more to flesh out TOS,
than the television show did. And, on its own terms, the new
movies definitely have their own charm and likeability.

I agree with that. Into Darkness was an "epic thriller" category movie. But things like Spock going crazy, magic blood, and cheesy parodies of TWOK made it not a good canon film. The 2009 film wasn't as much that way, but it still had a lot of them same things that messed it up for me.

My two cents...


Star Trek works as a Television series. It belongs on the small screen. The films are what they are, a way for Paramount to make a buck on "The Franchise". I wouldn't rate any of the films above a decent ST episode.


The previous TOS, TNG movies, for the most part, were profitable. The reason being that they had relativly small budgets. With JJ Trek, Paramount splurged on the budget. The gamble was that JJ Trek would be the studio's version of Iron Man or Dark Night. It didn't work. While they have grossed more than any of the other ST films, they are far from being the most profitable. STID, with a budget of $190,000,000 grossed just over $466,000,000 world wide. Compare that to "Iron Man 3" with a $200,000,000 budget and over a billion gross world wide.


 


JJ Trek is an under preforming success. It does nothing to reinvigorate the franchise. It just makes money for Paramount and Bad Robot. As a Trekkie, I couldn't care less about a summer blockbuster. I would like to see a new series but apparently CBS doesn't want to try.


 


And to the OP. Being a Trekkie doesn't mean you have to like EVERYTHING. You either love it, hate it or ignore it and for me JJ Trek falls in the latter category. Freedom of choice man

I can't wait to see the new Klingon Battlecruisers and Romulan Warbirds.....and of course Uhura in her ever ENDEARING uniform.


Who needs ample nacelles when you have a set of space matrix restoration coils like that.

here's what I have an issue with. "calm down and start having fun with the universe"


I didn't care for the movies, I'm plenty calm. I had plenty of fun with the universe before the reboots came out.


It's always the assumption of the people who like the movie that the "haters" are all wound up about it and such. It's just a movie that some people like and some peole don't. I juss really can't understand why the likers seem to get so upset whenever someone doesn't like it

I agree with willowtree. Sure some Trekkies are uptight purists but many just have an opinion. I didn't like ST09 or STID, but I'm not going to dump on someone who did and I don't like fans who do that. To each their own. But this attitude that we should blindly support anything with "Star Trek" in it's name is kind of ridiculous.

 I third that opinion.

I agree. If they made a "dramedy" with a trek title, I would hope that it would not be blindly supported just because it says Star Trek. My whole issue is (as others have said) that if you dont like something, be respectful and civil about it and stop with derogatory comments and cursing...it just makes those people look ridiculous and does not endear anyone to them
