I concider myself a die hard Trekkie. I LOVED it.

Is that your way of grudgingly admitting that you liked it Joseph?

No, that was my sarcasm voice ... which I realize is difficult to tell apart from my normal one.

It was just kind of ... there.  I can't think of anything really positive to say about it, but the negatives I have to add are relatively minor and are picky.

Well, there were some witty one-liners.  I guess that's a positive comment.

A lot of the action felt forced.  Kirk rarely made an active decision to do anything, except for one major decision that changed the progression of events.  For that matter, that decision was kind of force-fed to him.

Most of the rest just felt like a bunch of people tumbling through a progression of events.  I never got the feeling of anyone agonizing over a problem or making a less-than-blindingly obvious choice.  The action was fairly well done, but a lot of it felt like pointless eye candy.

It wasn't a bad movie.  It's worth seeing.  It just wasn't a good movie, either.

I saw it yesterday. I thought that it was really engaging. It didn't resort to any cheap tricks to drive the plot, there were a couple of nods to the old series and the films, and it was exciting. And there were lens flares- lots and lots of lens flares...

Well, they snuck a little bit of plot into all of the action scenes, in the new Star Trek movie.

I love the Riddick movies - my favorites.
