Your_Huckleberry: Mugato: mjbok: Hence the reason why some people disliked the reboot (time travel, alternate realities, both of which are crutches for the uncreative).Star Trek: The Apple Store was a reboot in every way that matters. Only because Nimoy made an appearance did they have to write in a contrivance that it was some "alternate reality". Like the Romulan going back in time changed things so much that the Enterprise was built in Iowa, as Kirk happened to drive by. Or all the characters became caricatures of their alternate versions./god the writing in that movie sucked//that one effect was cool though, you know, the effect with the light behind the lensRunning the risk of bringing on the wrath of a certain Reboot Defender here, but I watched the last half of the movie the other night on FX and it struck me like a quantum torpedo midships: try as I might not to, I like the movie less and less the more I watch it. I didn't want to be the person who disliked it simply because it was different Star Trek, but man, does that movie lose it's appeal to me upon repeated viewings.But, about old movie posters, one of my all time favorites is the one from the 1976 remake of King Kong. Yeah, yeah, the movie itself is fairly crummy, but the poster of Kong (not looking anything like the Kong in the movie, by the way-and much larger) straddling the World Trade Center with Jessica Lange in one hand and a freaking El Train in the other is cool.Now if I could only convince the Wife it'd look cool up on the wall of my office....

swahnhennessy: Why is there a man in a cape on the Star Trek poster?
buntz: Mugato: Nobody makes one sheets like this anymore. They're all Photoshopped composites.As opposed to this Empire poster where they all posed to be photographed like that!/just busting your balls, I love the old posters too, but it's still a (pre photoshop) composite
rocky_howard: th0th: imontheinternet: Star Trek: Into GrimdarkThe crew is here to invert tachyon beams and kick ass, and they're all out of tachyons.I thought Penny Arcade already had the win for the best overuse of cliches in a single frame. To wit:[art.penny-arcade.com image 558x768]LOL you wish that was true:[1.bp.blogspot.com image 438x667]Bonus points: This was created as legit.
Mister Peejay: It looks like a moon.
mjbok: My main issue was it was there was no reason to make it be with the original characters. It could have been in the original timeline and had most everything be the same. No reason to bastardize existing continuity with the stupidity of the alt-verse, which doesn't work anyways because it changes established events before the branching point.It should have been Star Trek, with new characters and a new ship. Or hell, explore B or C (can't remember which one disappeared in TNG.)
UberNeuman: The Dark Star Trek into Darkness Night.\so so dark.....
