i really do (the film that is. i've never watched any of the tv show or previous movies). mainly because of the casting. i think its probably the best casting in recent memory. mainly because it looks really bad on paper. like i saw the cast and went "wtf? they couldn't get a better cast than that?" and in the movie everyone is perfect. and they have good chemistry. and nobody in the cast was the "easy choice" except maybe Greenwood.

and i use it as an example of how performances in blockbusters get undervalued (along with Will Smith in I am Legend) because i think both Quinto and Pine's performances, for different reasons, are excellent in the film. and Quinto especially could have gotten his name thrown in the hat for various supporting actor noms if it wasn't for the fact that it's a sci-fi action movie (not saying he should have gotten a nom, just saying his name should have popped up more in pre-nomination articles as a dark horse pick).

did you not like it?

I did like Star Trek quite a bit, which surprised me cause I'm not a Trek fan in the least bit and was taken to the movie, but was very very pleased.
And I do think it was quite underrated for being a "genre film." Not saying it should have been winning awards, but no doubt that "sci-fi action," "summer blockbuster" and "Star Trek" were malefactors in that area.

i'm actually surprised you didn't list Synecdoche, NY as that argues more rewatches cuz of content. But maybe you were going for like most likable easy going movie where the rewatches are more like a i know every line adam sandler kinda movie rather than something you don't get the first time around, or didn't fully get. Most of those are pretty one and done for me, not that i dislike them (actually enjoyed these the first time around), but they're not very rewatchable in the kind of way i percieve rewatchable movies.

yeah, the intention of that was for the "throw in this movie and have it in the background while I do shit on the computer cause it never gets old to me" type of rewatchability rather than the "discover new layers to the narrative and complexities that escaped me the first time" type of rewatchability. which would be a completely different list with probably, almost by definition, no common films.

edit: which is why they are all action or comedy. and the reason for the trilogies and stuff, cause for some reason i have fun watching sequels to movies i like even when the sequels aren't nearly as good (Pirates 2 & 3, X-Men 3, etc). i have that problem where i get wrapped up in a world and can't separate myself from it to analyze it. like, i can watch even the worst LOST episodes and still be entertained.
