if you have the oppurtunity to see it on an imax screen do it, I saw it on both screens last night(closet geek alert) and it fits very well on the imax screen

As I mentioned to Flex in the Room of Chattering a couple weeks ago, the trailer didn't fill me with hope or interest. Seemed like a generic CGI action flick. Which is fine if that's what you want, but I want something more from Trek. However, he passed on some early reviews that suggest that the trailer was skewing to the popcorn crowd. Eburp's review, tho, isn't very complimentary. Eh, I might wait till it hits the cheap theatre.

I saw it last night, it was quite good. It certainly updates the franchise for the 'action' generation, but it's forgivable because you're compelled to care about the characters more than any time in the past (except maybe II). Big thumbs up from KP if it means anything.

That's a pretty devastating counter-punch. The arena would be stunned by that blow.
