Orci and Kurtzman are the problem. Lens flares are just an irritant.

Mugato: I thought he was talking about those three writers he keeps hiring.


This. The lens flare I don't mind that much, but every time I think about the new Trek movies I notice another gaping plot hole.

Abrams is a competent director. Not great, not terrible. But the writers he works with are godawful. Into Darkness, in retrospect, felt more like people playing a Wrath of Khan themed adventure module for an RPG than an actual story in its own right; the characters are all recognizable, even if some are played in a hammy fashion, and the story kind of fits, but there's so much artifice you can practically see the holes in the fourth wall.

Esroc: You know, I barely noticed the lens flares until the internet got all butthurt over it.

/they really aren't that bad
//people always have to find something to biatch about


I noticed it before I heard about it on the first ST.   Their excuse for using it is that it's a technique to make a movie more immersive.

Here's a hint: if your attempts to immerse me in your movie distract me from it, you're doing it wrong.
