You’re criticizing the script, even after it’s been pointed out to you that Abrams didn’t write it.
You also seem to be confusing critical reception with your opinion. Rotten Tomatoes scores are, in my opinion, anyway, an accurate measure of critical reception. Star Trek (2009) has a 90+%. Ted, which you cite as one of many “comedic crowd pleasers which are still outstanding films on a critical level” has a 68%, which is good, sure, but not as good as ST’s score.
You then go on to attempt to explain ST’s score by chalking it up to the built in fan base of the franchise. Well, maybe film critics are overwhelmingly Trekkies, I guess that could be. Confusingly, though, other films in the chain are notorious mutts-- Nemesis comes in at 37%, for example. So that’s not it, either.
Personally, I did not enjoy Star Trek much, but it clearly did well with both the critics and at the box office, which are not the calling cards of a bad director. I think the film was fairly true to the original material, which is, as you admit, ridiculous.
Yeah, you said that already. Do you have some examples of particularly bad sequences you can share? They’d have to be really bad to sink the entire film. Personally, I think he cuts away too often, and I remember the first time Batman fought with Bane looking slow, but those things are not enough for me to say Nolan’s bad at his job.
