New Star Trek?

What is the general consensus for the new Star Trek movies?

I really think most of the actors have nailed their respective roles while still developing a personal take on an old character.

My favorite is Karl Urban as Bones. When I first heard he was going to play Dr. McCoy I was worried. But he nailed it.

What does anyone else think?

    Honestly, JJ Abrams is inconsistent, and maybe even a little overrated. The only good things that he has ever done are Super 8 and Lost. I left the movie feeling like I wanted more. (I was pretty disappointed.)

    The actors/actresses were great, but the script/screenplay felt dry, and somewhat rushed. However, that it just my opinion, don't listen to what I am saying, watch it yourself, and make your own opinion of them movie.

    Luv'd the first reboot, the second was meh

    The first re-boot movie was just awesome! It was young, fresh, new and it blew me away because it was fun. Wasn't the best movie I've seen, but for a May summer action flick, I was stunned because some of the Trek movies from the 80's and 90's were boring.

    Then this new movie came out in May of 2013. First, a sequel that came exactly 4 years after the original re-boot was just too long. The fun of the original movie was not fresh in my mind and I felt the new sequel was already old somehow.

    The story of the second movie felt forced. For something so fresh and new, why cram this old sub story into this. When the villain was revealed, I was like "who cares"!

    Hate to say it, but I felt the re-boot had great promise, but I feel it has already worn thin. Unfortunately, because of the advanced parallel Star Trek attempts with our current civilization, the current advancements in technology will probably render the old "submarine in space" concept dated and obsolete. Luckily, there are tons of re-runs and Netflix to feed the occasional fix we need with an episode or two.

    I stopped at Wrath of Kahn. I'm probably not going back. And I'm not watching any of the Disney Star Wars either, unless one of my kids gets into it.

    Just not the same...

    I think the new Star Trek is really good. The new characters all really nail there roles. But I agree, Bones is the best of the new crew.

    I agree. Not the same. Similar but not the same.

    I don't think they will go for "same" with Star Wars but, like the new Star Trek, will be... familiar.

    Besides with Star Wars - Lucas sucks as a director. A brilliant mind a good story special effects that frippen rock - suck director.
