What’s wrong with the JJ Abram’s helmed feature film, STAR TREK (2009)? It may be sloppy and nonsensical, but if you take them for what they’re worth, they can be enjoyed. At least that seems to be the position of the Imagination Connoisseur who goes by the name “Madvillainy.”

I find the J.J. Abrams Star Trek trilogy oddly controversial.

As someone who did not grow up with Star Trek, I’m somewhat ashamed to admit that my first real introduction to the Star Trek universe was Abrams’ 2009 film. I enjoyed it, and to be honest I still do. I think (as most seem too) that “Into Darkness” was a bit of a misstep for the franchise but “Star Trek Beyond” was a nice return to form.

There is, however, a caveat to my enjoyment of these films, I hate them.

I hate everything they represent on an intellectual level. Abrams and company fundamentally misunderstand virtually everything about Gene Roddenberry’s vision, it’s a disgrace.

However, as I’ve previously stated, these movies are incredibly competent, and have an infectious cast, even if they don’t seem to have any idea about the characters they’re playing.

So, I pose the question to you Mr. Burnett, what do you think? Are there any Movies, books, or even albums you dislike on intellectual level but can’t help but enjoy?
