If anyone where to mess with us, it'll be Karl Urban since he's the only member of the cast who was a fan of the original series.

Omnipotent, mind-controlling characters are boring as shiat. Look how much "The Ten Commandments" dragged with that character "God."

Interesting idea.

Very interesting. It could work like wonders if pulled off correctly. Else, well, Star Trek V needs to be eventually passed by something more of fail
 
2012-07-09 03:59:50 PM  
I'd prefer Finnegan.

Hey Jimmie, me bucko!
 
2012-07-09 04:22:15 PM  
I thought they already covered the Gary Mitchell story in the rebooted timeline?

They're still going with that silly ass "Vulcanian nerve pinch"?

Jeez, what a load of crock. That was devised because in the 60s people didn't know cool martial arts or had any imagination about fights. Or even resources to pull them off.

It was Bruce Lee who opened our eyes (Yes, I know he was Kato in the 60s, that's the point)

I'm ok with this.

Actually, it was developed because a script called for Spock to punch someone's lights out and Nimoy objected based on Vulcan's pacifism. He and Shatner then devised and demonstrated the nerve pinch and it became canon. At least that's the story according to Nimoy.

/Trek nerd and proud of it!

Sweet, they're going to make a flick for each episode of the series?

rocky_howard: Jeez, what a load of crock. That was devised because in the 60s people didn't know cool martial arts or had any imagination about fights. Or even resources to pull them off.


Horse shiat. Leonard Nimoy came up with the neck pinch because one of the early scripts called for Spock to knock out someone and he thought a Vulcan would never do something so undignified as a physical blow to another person.

It's not Gary Mitchell. The writers denied it years ago, and it's already been handled in the canon comic books. It's also not Khan.

I think the clues are there. At some point the producers said the villain would be familiar. They probably meant Klingons. But that didn't mean the MAIN villain would be familiar. Just like Star Trek: Generations.

Oh, yeah, because they would NEVER contradict the comic books! Everyone reads "Star Trek" comics!

Give me a break.

I love it when Star Trek and Star Wars and comic book nerds argue about "canon", as if it matters to anyone at all. Including themselves.
 
2012-07-09 05:07:51 PM  
As long as they don't use the retarded "galactic barrier" that they used in that episode...

realmolo: Oh, yeah, because they would NEVER contradict the comic books! Everyone reads "Star Trek" comics!


Comic series typically are dubious canonicity, but in this case the comic series is overseen by one of the writers of the movie and is intended to bridge the gap between the first and second movies of the reboot. I think they even intend the series to do a bit of setup for the sequel, like the previous Countdown series bridged the gap between where we last saw the TNG era at the end of Voyager and the new rebooted movie timeline.

Pfft, Gary Mitchell. This is such a red herring. It's totally gonna be Finnegan. He never met Mitchell in this timeline.

Oh yeah totally, except this time he looks more like the rabbit from donnie darko and he shoots lens flare from his eyes.

Did you somehow forget that Simon Pegg is part of the cast? He's a pretty big trekkie too.

I thought it was he was supposed to knock someone out with the butt of his phaser, not punch someone (very minor difference, I'll admit). Which always made me wonder why not use the stun setting... I might be mis-remembering it, though.

No, no, no. It'll be Trelane or that fat guy in the muumuu from " And the Children Shall Lead".

Tyrosine: No, no, no. It'll be Trelane or that fat guy in the muumuu from " And the Children Shall Lead".


They could even get Brian Cox to play the fat guy in the muumuu.

Just take my money already.

I'd see it even if it was just Kirk and Spock standing on the bridge reading from a phone book.

You know, I would watch that, I love that episode. I like that Kirk learns a lesson from the Organians at the end. And how Spock keeps spouting the odds on their chances of success. Plus there's always the hilarious sabotage scene with the 'exploding' armoury.

Heh, sparkle enterprise :) No no, I am committed. Er, kind of. Or resigned at least.

Assuming you mean the actor and not the physicist. Cox does look a lot like the original muumuu guy.
 
2012-07-09 06:07:58 PM  
I will wait for the lens flare report on this film so I know if I want to see it.

The first one is on FX from time to time and is farking unwatchable with all the flaring and light phantoms that dance on the screen in almost every frame.

Oh wow yeah, lol, that shining green ghost dude. He was a famous civil rights lawyer or someit in RL, wasn't he? I was a bit confused for a sec, I kept thinking of that weird-looking teenaged kid inMiri.

Star Trek (2009).


Just so we have some objective benchmarks, I cobbled together Rotten Tomatoes rankings for all the films:

Star Trek TMP - 47%

Star Trek II - 90%

Star Trek III - 77%

Star Trek IV - 84%

Star Trek V - 21%

Star Trek VI - 83%

Star Trek Generations - 48%

Star Trek First Contact - 92%

Star Trek Insurrection - 56%

Star Trek Nemesis - 38%

Star Trek (2009) - 95%


So it appears critics would agree with the original poster: Star Trek V is indeed still the worst of the bunch.

Melvin Belli. He played Gorgan in "And the Children Shall Lead" and he was played by Brian Cox in the film Zodiac.

What's worse is that it actually scores HIGHER. More people like semi-mindless action spectaculars than like Star Trek. I think that explains the higher score. Okay, I promise to leave this thread now lurk in the shadows.

I was actually surprised by that myself.

The 2009 film also has a higher audience rating than WoK at 91% to 86%.

Contrary to popular knowledge, Rotten Tomatoes percentages don't mean how GOOD a movie is, but how many people liked it and what are the chances you'll like it too. High percentage = Likable movie. Low percentage = Hated movie. Around the middle = Divisive movie.

A movie can have a higher percentage than another, but a lower actual rating.

Why do all of these f*cking trektards need to know the whole movie before it comes out? Why are they so desperate for the second movie to be a rehash of a story we've already seen?

What I want to see: A movie that has nothing to do with TOS other than the Enterprise and the core crew.
