They need to tweak it a bit since it still has that CG'ish lighting.

I think they need to update the rendering/lighting engine. Looks too perfect.
I am hoping that they can make some minor tweaks to some of the ship shots in the backgrounds as a lot of them look cut and paste.

Paramount doesnt give a crap about Star Trek and the reason it was popular. They are only using the name for recognition to make more money.

http://m.ign.com/art...rnational-debut


Paramount, enjoy losing the cult following and having nothing left when the popularity of this incarnation ends. Of course this is the studio they couldnt get Marvel universe together. Which is making billions in the hands of competence. And somehow....still largley aacknowleding its fans and history.

Lucy Arnez (errr?) and Roddenbery are rolling in their grave.

And yes it will last a good deal longer. Its a movie for people who cant comprehend much more than action scenes and explosions. No short supply there. But then another action sci fi trilogy will come along and star trek wont have a differing factor anymore.

Star Trek will endure almost no matter what they do. If Star Wars can survive Lucas, Star Trek can survive Paramount. The fans will bitch and moan that it's nothing like what they grew up with, but continue to watch it while a new group jumps in.

Meh, I haven't watched the new Star Trek movies. I see nothing of value in them. Alone, they're good movies but using the name Star Trek is just a quick cash-in.

Less than 24 hrs to go til the new movie!!

Some theaters are playing both movies back to back.
Honestly it's a trade off since I already have the first one , seen it 3 times in the theater and to see it at 8pm rather than 12am is better IMHO. It's really grueling to see a 2.5 hr movie at midnight then come home by 3:30ish to be up at 5 to be at work at 7am :-\

That is always bad. The marathons and midnight shows are wearing on me as the years go on.

I'd rather have an action oriented Star Trek than no Star Trek at all. Be aide let's face it, after Nemesis this franchise was on life support. Without this Star Trek, it seems likelythere wouldn't be any Star Trek at all.

I think the new question is if Star Wars will survive the double onslaught of JJ Abrams and Disney.

There's still no Star Trek as far as I'm concerned.

:rofl:

Ok let the spoiler talk BEGIN!!!

It was a pretty good movie.. I give it a 8.5 out of 10.

-Yes it is worth seeing it in a TRUE IMAX Theater.
-The 3D Did NOTHING FOR ME. bah
-IMAX 3D plus shake cam almost got to me when there was that quick zoom in the beginning.
-I liked the guy who played Harrison, but some scenes he over did it.



Now for my gripes.

Heh, I kept getting 3 or 4 or 5 so I carefully peeled up one. Only to realize I had two as I was walking out the door.

Well a lot of people didnt want one. Each of my twin boys will have one I guess. Cant wait until they are old enough to enjoy ST. Think I was 6 or 7 when the idea of space travel got my attention
