It can't be? Can it?
If you're a fan of Star Trek: The Motionless Picture then you're going to really not like it. However, if all you want from a space film is captured in the opening 10 minutes of Star Wars Episode III then I'd guess you'll need new underpants after watching, judging by the trailer.
Personally I think I'll enjoy it but I'm not sure I'll be wild about it. The reviews sound good but when you read how they played the crowd that's unsurprising:
They pretended they were going to see a new reprint of Wrath of Khan and then they made out the film burned and broke just after the credits. Then Nimoy comes on and tells the crowd they'll see the WHOLE of the new Trek movie and gives them all Vulcan salutes. That crowd of fanboys were just putty in his hand...
A lake of nerd-jizz in every aisle.
I've not seen it, but it's great. It's slightly tarnished by Simon Pegg's dodgy scottish accent though, even though I've only heard him say one line in the trailer it kinda almost ruined the whole film for me, although i haven't seen it. It is great though!
It looks like it's maybe addressing the core themes of Star Trekkyness without wandering too far into the swamps of canon that have ruined everything Star-based in the last decade (both Trek and Wars).
they should do a film where they get trapped in the holodeck and have to fight cowboys/gangsters
I am going to see the Star Wars musical on Friday.
KIRK: wowee look at this bitch. hell of touchscreens, and, dang, a ding-a-ling big ass chair.
Suddenly SPOCK rolls out of a Jefferies tube access vent, nude and drunk.
KIRK: i will sure be getting my mack on in this chair. spock, look at this chair
SPOCK: that shit is money. you can be captain for some reason
KIRK: sweet. oh what is that on the viewscreen
The huge bearded face of WILL RYKER, NO.1 appears on the screen.
RYKER: Reg! turn off the motherfucking holodeck, man, my toilet is backed the fuck up and you're on shit duty for being a cunt.
KIRK tears off his face to reveal REG BARCLAY.
BARCLAY: s-s-s-sorry sir. i'll get right on it sir. i love you sir
Close up on RYKER's face as huge words stamp onto the screen over it:
but this is still top work.
It made me do a lol
It's the shit
but that's probably just because I'm really interesting.
(Nothing special though)
any of the TV captains would've been desperately trying to save Eric Bana from the blackhole and been slightly agonised that they couldn't save him not all LOL LETS BLAST THAT CUNT HAAHAHAH UP YOURS DOUCHE BAG
it was entertaining but the constant lens flare and unstar treky they all behaved left me feeling it was a bit of a let down.
but much props to Abrams for deleting every bit of Star Trek except for Enterprise. that's PRETTY FUNNY.
Not exactly similar to the original series but go see it.
Zach Quinto = Quality
Karl Urban = Quality
in my head through most of the film.
i thought it was a great film, although were i more of a Trek nerd i suspect i wouldn't have done.
