 Just occurred to me that JJ destroying Vulcan was probably the same for him as the the death star blowing up Alderaan.  Vulcan and it's people meant nothing to JJ, but was an unforgivable sin to those of us that have seen every episode of every series.

I have a lot of movies that I love despite a large public saying I'm supposed to hate them. The key is remembering that movie-going is a very personal experience, and the exact set of circumstances that led to you seeing and enjoying/hating a movie are yours and yours alone. I know I have a really hard time hating a movie when I'm on a date with Tyrant, because life is generally groovier with her around. While most of the world forgot about James and the Giant Peach, it ended up being one of my favorite movies ever because I'd had a rough month and it was exactly the movie I needed to see. While most of the world reviles them, I enjoy the latter 2 Star Wars prequels because I saw them for the first time when I was dating, and shortly after marying, Tyrant, so there was a lot of feel-good juice coursing through my blood when I saw them, and watching them takes me back to then.

State of mind is everything when you're seeing a movie. I'm sure if I stumbled on it on TV, or if someone pulled me out of my routine to watch Van Helsing, I'd hate it with the rest of the world. Instead, because I was in just the right frame of mind when I saw it, I find it to be enjoyable. Not GREAT, but not bad by a long shot.

So..."I was about to get some." = "Great movie" then. Got it.

I need to ask something of other Trek fans. I'm not trying to argue, but I am rather looking for affirmation and validation. As you know, I loved the last two Trek films, but there's obviously a part of me that's going bat shit crazy wondering why I love those films and everybody else hates them. I feel like I'm the one asshole in a sea of brilliant minds, the one religious nut job on a planet full of rational human beings... or something. I'm just trying to work out in my head why the hell I can't just trust my own opinion and would rather look for an opinion to endorse my own position from someone with a greater mind.

I think they're both great too, trust your opinion.

Sorry, everyone. False alarm. It turns out Shatner's tweet was actually him talking about returning to L.A. after a weekend in London.

Well...they do say he's directed Community and True Detective episodes so at least he's shown range.

Honestly, the only works of his I've seen are his Community episodes, so...I hope Star Trek 3 has a lot of paintball.

And hey, last time Community directors took over a major franchise, we got Winter Soldier! This'll be totally the same scenario, right?
