Has this been done before? If so I apologize! Which JJ led 'soft-reboot' movie did a better job, Star Trek '09 or The Force Awakens? 

 

Both are great films in my opinion but overall I'ld have to give the edge to Star Trek because of how it cleverly reboots the franchise without pissing on 45ish years of history compared to TFA which copies from its source material more.

What Tele said. I think ST09 is great but TFA is a whole nother level.

TFA easily, nothing from Trek09 comes close to Reys introduction / all the scenes on Jakku.

they are both in my top 10 all time favorites. TFA just barely beats ST. but seeing as how it's less than a year old I'm not sure I can vote on it.

Trek 09, which is one of my favorite blockbusters this century.

Trek 09 by a mile.

 

Both films are fans-serving, but TFA took that job to a whole new level, which I suppose is becoming a trend that other studios will follow.

TFA but not by much.  However, you have to give ST09 a lot of credit for a great job re-casting such iconic characters.

Generally speaking, I feel characters in Trek09 are more nuanced and have more depth than TFA's. Compare Trek's trio to TFA's trio. It's not a fair fight.

 

That and the fact TFA is basically Fanservice - The Movie.

 

Trek wins hands down, but I would say TFA first third is up there.

Trek 09 is quite horrible imo.  TFA blows it out of the water.

I guess we are back on agreeing about movies again :P

Trek because it doesn't have the same problems that plague Super 8 and Force Awakens... As in, Abrams isn't obsessive fan of Trek so he brings something new to it rather than regurgitory adulation.
