I got this on DVD a few weeks ago.  I have watched it at least 3 times.  I love the movie.  Of course we got a new 46 inch TV with help from my parents.  So, that's another reason.  It just looks gorgeous on there.  Anyway, yeah there were very minor things I did not care for but overall I think it's great.  It was my favorite movie of this year but quite a bit really.  It certainly freshened up that franchise.  To bad the toys tanked though.

I'm an old school Trekkie and I probably will never warm up to this bunch. People might understand when Disney recasts Luke Skywalker or Indiana Jones some day. That new movie sounds too much like the last Batman to me.

I think it's clever with the symbol hidden in open space.  I definitely don't want to Star Wars characters recast, but Star Trek has half a dozen time-travel based stories, including cross-overs with the various sub-franchise timelines, so its a much better fit for that universe.  I thought the first one was well done - I'll definitely go see this one.

You're correct, Justin... just, it's been done half a year ago.  :-\  It just makes one feel as if they lack originality in the creative talent if they are already reusing that  idea.

Looks cool.  Check out the Japanese version if you want confirmation of the baddie.

That blonde looks a lot like Sally Kellerman.
