I have a Trek super fan friend who was bitching to me about how bad the JJ Star Trek movies are (I haven't watched them). I tried to remind him that all of the TNG movies were pretty fucking terrible (with First Contact being the only possible exception). He refused to accept this as a fact, and forced me to borrow Nemesis from him, against my will. This was a few months ago, and the Nemesis DVD is still sitting on the end table by my front door.
I was thinking of replacing the DVD with a facsimile disc which just contains the Plinkett review of Nemesis, as he nails why it sucks so bad in a very precise way.
Yes, all the TNG movies (except half of First Contact) are terrible.
That does not excuse the level of terrible that Abrams takes them too. I think the observation was made that they are the Transformers movies with starships instead of robots and that it exactly right.
So while old Trek crap like The Final Frontier were awful, I would take that over the Michael Bay-inization of the franchise.
At this point the only value anyone sees in these movies is pissing off nerds.
Star Trek Nemesis might be one of the worst movies I have ever seen.
What Kabbage said, and it's not so bad it's good either. It's just extremely painful and unpleasant.

Am I the only one disappointed because I was expecting a Peter Gabriel cover?
At lest it's not a "sad kitty" cover, you know what I mean?
Rihanna is far better than Peter Gabriel. Far, far better.

Honestly, I am getting tired of the Enterprise getting destroyed in every other movie.
I mean, it was gut-wrenching and emotional in "The Search for Spock" but now it's like seeing a soap opera character wake up from a coma with amnesia. I'm, like, "Oh, for fuck's sake. This shit again?"
Lazy, lazy, lazy.
I know this debate has been raging for nearly forty years, but I think it is now safe to say that Star Trek is the mere budget-version of Star Wars. All you get is films, and they're the B-films, meant to pad out JJ's time between Star Wars releases.
I don't understand how you can complain about Abrams violating the legacy of the original series. He kept all the tits, explosions, and heavy handed moral messages, and just made the wrasslin' slightly less homoerotic. Is that what you nerds are mad about?
He'll be producing the other ones, if memory and a cursory Duck search are any indication.
SORRY! Very excited Homer moment. I just saw that the guy slated to direct the next Star Wars film is the same guy who directed the BEST Breaking Bad episode, "Fly"!!!
Nevermind. Turns out, Star Trek is the *G-grade* filler padding out JJ's Star Wars films.

Nothing good has come from the name Star Trek since about 1998. It's not even worth harping on about or debating any more; Star Trek films come and go like bad weather that must be endured.
Star Wars fans had it rough for a long stretch of 35 years between Empire and Force Awakens. Maybe in another 17 or so years someone will figure out how to resuscitate Trek in a way that's true to its original spirit. In the meantime, wear longjohns and a toque.
I'm not sure Star Trek has been good since Ricardo Montalban.
Being slightly better than what came before does not mean that the thing in question is any good. The Force Awakens was over a "better" movie than any of the prequels but the prequels had a good sound track. The Sith theme maybe on of my favorite pieces from the the series and the original movies was start to finish great music. So why did The Force Awakens fail so hard at this?
so much butthurt, its just a movie
Does Rhianna get disintegrated by a disrupter in this one? The slow kind heavy on the gruesome FX.
If so, I might go see it.
If not, it'll be just like the other two.

looks pretty boring alright.
The movie looks like a dumb slog but a far bit better than the insulting trash that was star trek into darkness.
We also have to take into account that america isn't even the primary audience for these movies. This is Star Trek for China.
That's a big factor in CGI blockbusters in general. Most of the problems with big, CGI heavy blockbusters in the last decade are things that were already pretty commonplace in Hong Kong blockbusters years earlier.
I guess I didn't finish my thought there, but fuck it.
Begging the question: Beyond what?
Since I don't care about this, let me ask a different question:
Is this song a direct response to Cyrus's Wrecking Ball? Do all pop stars have to do a construction machinery/tools song? When can I expect Katy Perry's Jackhammer?
I'm just so tired of all these Star Wars.

He crashed the ship again? Who keeps give this guy a command?
>> Who keeps give this guy a command?
The military-industrial complex. Every ship crashed = another ship that needs to be built using the post-NWO equivalent of tax money.
Ghostbusters is looking a lot better now.
I kiiiinda like this one?
No surprises, just more explosions, but still
