I'll always take comfort in the fact that this movie can in no way ever be worse than Insurrection or Nemesis, at the very least.

Lance, personally I gotta throw Generations in there with those two.
I hated that story with a passion. I actually prefer Nemesis to that turd.
I know that makes me in the small minority.

Sadly, I have to say that the excellent First Contact appears to be an anomaly from that whole crew. TNG was largely excellent, it's a little puzzling for me.

Generations felt like a lame TV episode with Kirk thrown in there, but it wasn't terrible... just kind of there. Same with Insurrection, and this is coming from the series that gave us some of the most cinematic episodes of all of Trek ("Yesterday's Enterprise," "The Best of Both Worlds," "All Good Things...," to name a few)

Nemesis at least had the balls to try something kind of new, but didn't work for whatever reason.

DM's right, First Contact kicks ass, but it's not rocket science as to why. Popular villain(s) + action-oriented = win. The Wrath of Khan formula strikes again.

I had a rebuttal typed up, but decided to erase it. I love Generations, but couldn't really defend it with any respectable logic. Don't compare it to Nemesis though. Nothing's that bad.

And that's why I can live with this movie. It won't be a boring, overlong episode like Insurrection or a complete travesty like Nemesis. Even if they drop the ball and give us a "meh" film a la Generations, at least it doesn't do that much harm to the franchise and would entertain this Trekkie for two hours.

There's a new trailer up on AICN that's nearly exactly the same until the very end, then it just kicks ass.

that actually wasn't as bad as I was anticipating... That's the problem with trailers though, enough quick cuts and a snappy song and you can make anything look good.

Holy Christ. That could be the most epic trailer I've ever seen. Thanks, Michael Giacchino!

And I didn't get to see it before Watchmen today... boo.

Everything after that shot of Kirk on the ice planet halfway through is the fucking most epic shit ever. Fuck me....!

I saw this preview on a giant screen before Watchmen tonight,
and it left me with the impression that this movie has a high potential to be cheese ball.

Agreeing with deep. It looks very corny and the trailers haven't really excited me all that much.

I think the only non-cheeseball Trek film was The Motion Picture...and that was just

I thought the trailer looked great.

Of course, whether that means the movie will be too remains to be seen.
