That's our headline? Come on now.

Will the jump to hyperspace now sound like a shotgun blast?

Modmins, think about it.  If people have already posted comments in other threads on this subject, what are the chances they are going to want to come here and duplicate their efforts?

Farking waste of time.

Abrams did great with the 2009 Star Trek (suck it trekkies), and he'll do fine with this.

If there's a crap load of LENS FLARE in Into Darkness, be afraid.

While I know he didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of getting the gig, I dearly would have loved seeing Kevin Smith as the director.

Yeah, but then it just would have been a bunch of Stormtroopers sitting around talking.  (I kid because I love.)

I feel he has a lot of love for the original trilogy and would try to undo the damage that Lucas did with 1-3.

Ben Afleck was in the running, and I assume that if he had been selected Kevin Smith would have been brought in to consult on the project.

This, plus there's nothing I enjoy more than the sad, pathetic wailing of a bunch of middle-aged fanboys and J.J. Abrams has an uncanny knack for causing that.

Kevin Smith wrote a glowing review of Ep. III. Link

So I assume the plot of the story is to create a wormhole so that they can go back in time and get Carrie Fischer when she was hot and not snorting lines of coke around the clock?
 
2013-01-24 07:12:15 PM
I hate hate hate hate JJ Abrams.

Star Trek was a farking shiat movie. Yes, it had the characters right, but literally every major plot event occurred with the help of some kind of deus ex machina.
 
2013-01-24 07:12:15 PM
I was hoping for Brad Bird, but I don't think Abrams is a bad choice. It can't be worse than the prequels.

I can't decide what will be the best part of the new movies. Watching them, or watching the nerds flip out on every development that leads up to them waiting in line at midnight to see them?

So it's like every other Star Trek movie? Remind me, how often have they gone back in time now in the movies, using different methods every single farking time?
 
2013-01-24 07:17:13 PM
It would be leaning on style more than substance, but it would be way more interesting than 1-3. Plus, lots of eye candy. Bonus if Rebecca Mader. Or the Deschenel sisters.

Kevin Smith? He's funny and everything, but I have to think even he, with his self admitted sub-middling skills as a filmmaker, would laugh at that notion.
 
2013-01-24 07:18:46 PM
God. I had TF for a few months. There's no way this is the best submitted headline.

Kevin actually loved the prequels.

He firmly believed it was George Lucas toy box, and enjoyed the story Lucas wanted to tell.

So did I. And I was a fan from 1st run of Star Wars- before any chapter added to the crawl.
 
2013-01-24 07:21:07 PM
Oh, I get it, his movie had a couple lens flares in it.

Probably

Abrams knows how to get good production value and how to get good performances out of people. The problem with Star Trek is that there is just really nothing there. Its just the characters running around for a while through the greatest hits of Star Trek sub plots. It looked great and sounded great, and it felt great while watching it. There's really nothing more you can ask for from a director.

The script for Star Wars is in the hands of a genuine talent. This could work. This could easily work. As long as Tyler Perry doesn't show up as a Bothan or something.

I'd still have preferred Brad Bird if I had my druthers.

Our firepower can't repel lens flare of that magnitude.

That was pretty much the end of Smith for me.  It was already grating on my nerves by biatching about his lame ass life all the time (married to a hot girl while throwing parties every week - yea - lame) and then he went ahead and wrote that piece of shiat.

/glad he's not involved
//Abrams will do fine

When I watched Reboot Trek, I saw a lot of Star Wars influence. I figure he'd be a good Star Wars director: taking a operatic script, adding the human element to it.

hmmm no quoted source, no Lucasfilm or Disney source and no official press release anywhere of any kind....

Not, even, remotely.

J.J. Abrams now directing Star Wars, Star Trek, Star Search, Star Jones, and starfishes

/Also Star Fox, Star Man, Dancing with the Stars, and The Last Starfighter.

If that's what you chose to see. I saw an epic tale of innocent sloly corrupted by doing the right thing, a republic willingly turn to tyranny, and a group of porotectors brought down by their own Hurbis.

2013-01-24 07:42:09 PM
Damn. I was hoping that Lucas would diect more Star Wars movies, because the series definitely needs more Stepin Fetchit and Jewish caricatures.

Star Wars is dead.

He's competent, I'll give him that. Everything is shaping up for this to be slightly above mediocre

I was brought down by Hurbis once. He was a big bastard.
