Re: Star Trek Beyond

RE: "And you know something else? I do not appriecate it, when people belittle this problem by calling us "bitter old complainers". If this whole situation doesn't bother you personally - that's okay. But keep in mind that this issue *is* a big deal for some people, and that we have good reasons to feel the way we do about the matter."

I respect your opinion, and your beliefs. My opinion is that the judging standard of "Do these movies successfully bring a recognizably Star Trek flavour to the Dumb Action Movie, and does it taste any good?" is a perfectly appropriate one. After all, people who grew up on action movies like Gunga Din and The Adventures of Robin Hood might very well find movies that were loved by a newer generation (The French Connection, Bullitt, Dirty Harry) to be overedited, overwrought and overheated.

Respectfully, your language suggests that if someone is indeed not bothered personally, that there is something wrong with that person, or that person is not a "true" fan. Maybe that was not your intent in making this statement, but (in my opinion) it comes off that way. Certainly, you can "rage, rage, against the dying of the light," but doing so does not prove (or disprove) your Trek bona fides. Others may feel more like Damar - they may feel that Gul Rusot's Cardassia is indeed not coming back, and that, maybe, that isn't a 100% bad think. The Trek Universe is a pretty big place - big enough to make room for people who both agree with you and for those who dissent from you.
