Star Trek Beyond: Sigh

I saw Star Trek Beyond today. I really like the cast, and I can see that Simon Peg's story reigned in the JJ Abrams airheadedness considerably, but as I sat through all the incoherent action sequences waiting for the crumbs of character-driven dialog, I just couldn't help coming back around to the seemingly obvious contempt in which the studio execs hold the audience.

Let me make this super-clear. I really appreciate this new cast. I have nothing but appreciation for the actors who have made such efforts to treat these characters with respect, but please, don't make any more of these movies.

I'm a life-long Trekkie, but I'm not paying for any more movie tickets in this franchise. Please, just stop.

Wow. You still check LiveJournal?

It's not a bad movie by contemporary standards, and I really do like the cast, but...
