From the trailers and posters I figured it wasn't a movie for me. I was probably going to just wait for the BluRay.
But then my buddy asked me to take him to his early AM colonoscopy appointment, and afterwards he bought me breakfast and took us to the new Star Wars movie.
The experiences were similar.
After a few weeks of contemplation, and having only seen Cloverfield, the first Trek abomination, and TFA, I type the following:
To me, JJ Abrams is the knock-knock joke of moviemaking. His stuff is watchable because I'm vaguely interested in seeing how it works out, but the dread outweighs the anticipation, and the dread is always rewarded.
