Well I just got back form the movie and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It was a very good movie and a very good return to the trek I originally liked. It managed to get nail the feel of the original series better than any trek I have ever seen. In all of the other (non-TOS) series time travel was the fall back for the writers running out of ideas and generally all of the related story lines sucked big time, though I did like the DS9 tribble episode. And at least it was a one-off.
Well I'm one of the old farts and remember Star Trek when the original series was the only Star Trek. I watched all of the later series and movies because I am a scifi fan and loved the original series. But in an attempt to portray humanity as enlightened, all the B&B morons did was create a world of spineless wimps that relied on the computer to magically solve the problem by telling the crew which button to push. DS9 tried to make humans more human, warts and all, but never was able to climb out of the craptacular sewer hell that Paramount let B&B drag it into.

This movie has restarted the storyline in such a manner that undoes all the damage returns Star Trek to its original ‘feel’. Sure I fully acknowledge the main characters are a different, but they all retained the core concept and did it very well.

I am suddenly a Star Trek fan again. Five stars out of five stars. I haven’t gone to see a movie twice in the theater in over 20 years but I think I will see this again. I may even buy the blue-ray.

This movie ROCKED!!!!

I love how the timeline of stuff we all know and love has been preserved, and at the same time opens the door for all the new stuff to come!

Loved the new interpretations of the old characters while still keeping the feel of the originals.........when's the sequel???

I'm going again!

Live Long and Prosper!

Do the events of this film possibly lay the ground work for the "Mirror Universe"?

Just a thought.  Would be cool if it did.

 I noticed that too, tom. I went to an earlier showing this morning, so the theater wasn't that packed. I turned to my buddy and said, "red shirt guy". And low and behold, 2 minutes later, baked Olsen. I laughed out loud and people stared at me as if I had feces spewing from my nostrils. I turned to the buddy I was with and sai Guess they just weren't very observant.

Absolutely loved this movie. I will admit that a few moments brought a nostalgic tear to my eye. As far as the timeline, let em at it.

Amanda Grayson never died in any of the incarnations that I know of. But here we are. She was vital to Spock's recovery after being returned to Vulcan following the whole Genesis debacle. And as Spock mentioned, Kirk's Dad saw him through Starfleet Academy and become Captain of the Enterprise.

 

 

 

END SPOILER

 

They needed a reboot and we sure as hell got a kick-ass ride to do it. You absolutely cannot beat the scene of the Enterprise being constructed. The scope of that scene alone was epic. I put my complete faith into JJ that he can continue this direction with much success. Being a long-time Trek fan, I most definitely approve of all this.

Just got back from a second viewing, and Still love it,,,,,great movie, but did anyone else notice the Firefly/ Serenity style of filming. I didn't notice it the first time, but alot of the FX/ Action scenes were filmed very much that way. I think it is cool. It is a very neat way to film.

It's an action sequence to the animated movie 9...Good stuff...

Whiskey, I noticed the same thing.  There were several times when the camera zoomed in slightly, then again slighty and even a third time.  Very Firefly-esque.  Though, Abrams probably thought he was being totally original there.

Still, great Trek movie.  The red shirt scene had me rollin'!

I'm happy JJ didn't disappoint. I was on board with him since he was announced and he came through. Beautiful way of rebooting without undoing what had already been done by creating an alternate timeline.

JJ is the man. Great film and happy as hell to finally have Star Trek back as a viable film franchise.
