I've tried torrents and they are a pain to download, takes too long, among other things

Comment by Joseph P on May 25, 2013 at 5:32pm

Torrents have even more choices.  ^.^

Comment by Mriana on May 25, 2013 at 5:28pm

Yes we still have them.  I'm not too impressed with Redbox, not enough choices.  I rather go into Family Video or alike and rent from hundreds of choices.

Comment by Joseph P on May 25, 2013 at 5:26pm
Do they still have brick-and-mortar video stores? I haven't seen one in years.
Comment by Mriana on May 25, 2013 at 5:24pm

Oh I'll rent it, but probably from a video store.

Comment by Joseph P on May 25, 2013 at 5:23pm
Redbox?

I didn't care much for the first "reboot" movie and from what I'm reading, I'm glad I didn't go to the theatre to see it and wasted all that money.

Comment by Joseph P on May 25, 2013 at 5:02pm

If you liked the first of the reboot movies, you'll certainly like this one, too.

This one has a few strong themes.  It seems like they're back to the classic series and TNG, in terms of constructing morality plays, but it wasn't one of the better morality plays I've seen.  There were far stronger ones all throughout the classic series, TNG, and DS9.

There also  wasn't as much character development as the last one.  Decent dialogue and some fun character interaction, but the characters weren't as dynamic as the last movie.  In almost every way, it was a fairly shallow movie, compared to what I was hoping for.

What a review, Joseph. "I can't think of anything really positive to say about it." "Well, they snuck a little bit of plot into all of the action scenes, in the new Star Trek movie." and "A lot of the action felt forced." I haven't seen it yet, but now I'm not in a big rush. *big sigh of disappointment* I am a die hard Trekkie too, so maybe I'll enjoy it anyway, Jeffery. Yes, Andrew, I've already been warned of the superabundance of  lens flares.

I concider myself a die hard Trekkie. I LOVED it.
