So the dying fan wanted 90-odd minutes of lens flare as their dying wish?

Hopefully it didn't suck balls like the last one.

It took 6 posts in to get our first lens flare comment. I expect better out of Fark.

Actually, the guy just saw the Fanboys movie and wants to see Kristen Bell dressed up as an Orion slave girl. Diabolical.

Maybe it makes more sense when on weapons grade quantities of morophine?

I finally saw Star Trek a few months ago, fully expecting all of the biatching about lens flare to be basic Fark butthurt. About 45 minutes into the movie, I had a nasty headache that wasn't from the poor plotting or dialogue. I mean, there was flare that didn't even seem physically possible.

Considering the popularity of the series and the number of people in the world fighting cancer, there has to be a terminally ill half life fan out there somewhere, right? Can they get us anything?
 
2012-12-29 01:23:02 PM  
Is this like the people who made Up! letting a 7 year old see it before it came out cause it was her last wish?
/And you thought the first 15 minutes were depressing.
 
2012-12-29 01:30:06 PM  
Indeed, it reminds of the movie Fan Boys, which was fun, but knowing all along that EP 1 SUCKED I was sort of glad the kid didn't get to see it.

/confession bear?

The lens flare might do him in.

I don't.
Lately I know exactly what the posts will be like before I even click anymore.
Hate the shows that are popular, nerd fights over directors, blah, blah, blah.
The more things change.....

It was as if Abrams hired Xzibit to do the final edit, so he could put some lensflare in the lensflare.

It's definitely not Khan.

The beginning of the film should show the Enterprise firing a couple of photon torpedoes at the S.S. Botany Bay, just to say "FARK YOU, WE'RE NEVER DOING KHAN!"

Well he's not Khan but he has super powers, there are cryo-tubes in the trailer and JJ Abrams and Bob Orci have the creativity of a squirrel so I'm guessing Khan is involved somehow.

Now that you mention it, that WOULD be a great final wish.

Farkers seem to be largely older than Redditors and exponentially more miserable and obsessed with teacher student sex.

He's over 40 and they didn't list his height.
