The annoying lesson the Star Trek reboot got all wrong

Recently I explained to a friend what was wrong with the new Star Trek movie, and over the course of the discussion, I listed issues such as massive explosions all over the place, fast scenes, frequent cuts, shouted dialogue, rather explicit exposition, loud crescendoes, and lack of tense build up, replaced with one action sequence

How copyright protection damages the environment
