Mugato: because I care: I get what you're saying, but I didn't feel that way at all. The original Kirk was someone I wanted to be, while the original Spock and McCoy were people I'd like to be friends with. The new characters reminded me of people I'd prefer to avoid. Basically Abrams turned "nerds in space" into "frat boys in space"Yeah, Kirk was the frat boy, Spock was a psychopath, Scotty was the Jar Jar of the crew, Uhura was a stuck up biatch, Chekov was even more of a cartoon than Scotty, Sulu was ok I guess but they turned him into a Jedi for some reason. The only real likeable character was Bones and that's because he just wasn't into the whole space thing and just wasn't invested in it so we related.

Darth_Lukecash: Are we talking about the movie added or what was in the plot originally? Since Tolkien was trying to copy the epic poems stories, he also copied the elements of them, including dues ex mahina.
Darth_Lukecash: Mugato: Shadowtag: but literally every major plot event occurred with the help of some kind of deus ex machina.No one complained about that with Lord of the Rings.Are we talking about the movie added or what was in the plot originally?

dajoro: This is not good news. Star Trek was just okay. Slick, pretty, ridiculous (Spock just happens to be on that ice planet?!?), and bland. Everything he does is just okay (although never saw Alias). I don't get the geek adoration. And the pretentious, smug, aren't-I-so-farking-clever secrecy/hints around his projects is just annoying. Remember the buildup to Cloverfield, and then we got Cloverfield? I was hoping for Brad Bird or Joss Whedon, someone with as much soul and heart as brain.
Oakenshield: God. I had TF for a few months. There's no way this is the best submitted headline.
Bathia_Mapes: 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.
NegativeChirality: 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.
