I'm sorry, "Trek" fans. I'm a big Abrams fan, but the second full-length trailer for Star Trek doesn't make me any more excited about it than the first. I'm willing to put my philosophical differences with the franchise aside, but the trailer just doesn't whet my appetite. In fact, I'm quickly losing interest. At least when Eric Bana had no speaking parts in the first trailer, he looked cool. Now, he sounds like a whiny villain with a garbled Irish accent or something. Chris Pine still doesn't look the part; Spock is wooden and looks like Maybelline's Cover Boy; John Cho looks like Harold trying to act tough; and I can't figure out why they don't give Simon Pegg any speaking time in the trailer -- just a smirky smile. And the substance of the movie? Looks like more of that "destiny" malarkey. Oh, did I mention that Tyler Perry is in it? Reaching for the stars there, J.J.

The explosions are cool, but everything else: Decidedly weak.
