    Just watched it and the 1st 10mins was amazing the Cgi ect plus that alien ship reminded me of Unicron when it come out that storm Loophole..

    Didn't the writers from Transformers 1 and 2 write star trek as well..?

    I think the writers' strike had a lot to do with it. TF2 got rushed into production in order to beat the strike, they got someone else to write the thing and then brought Kurtzman and Orci in to, basically, play clean up.

    heh. i was about to say something similar [not that i'm really hatin on Bay. cuz i like a lot of his stuff actually but]

    the reason TF2 is the way it is is because of Bay's input and what he wanted out of the script. not cuz the writers are incapable of writing a good TF story or something or that they just love star trek better so they put more effort into that

    its more of the who has the most input and say.

    it IS, afterall "Transformers: a MICHAEL BAY film"

    When I first saw the alien ship for the first time, I yelled out 'Oh my god it's Unicron' and the middle group of the theater cracked up laughing. My best friend was there with me and she still brings it up.

    Star Trek reboot had an awful lot of plotholes and contrivances itself; not sure if I'd consider the story to be that much better than TF per se, but the dialogue was definitely a hell of a lot better and the humor was generally smarter.

    I loved this movie. I'm a newish fan to Trek... always loved the Federation ship design, and that's where my joy of the series ended... until I started watching Next Gen, DS9, and Enterprise again (shaddup, I enjoyed it).

    The movie was epic and it's the most amazing blend of new and familiar you can get... plus, they gave themselves a fun new alternate timeline to play in... can't wait to see what they do next :)

    I agree. When you look back it's got some major issues with the story.
    But the biggest difference is that as you say the humor and dialog was so much better you don't notice this so much at 1st viewing,
    TF I noticed a few times plot holes and such.
