the most important part of that article was where it mentioned that george lucas would not be writing the script.

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

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.

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.


Yeah, Sulu engaging in swordplay was a bit of a stretch.

Wonder if Abrams will stick a Star Trek Easter egg in the new Star Wars movie.

And is anyone else thinking about crossover potential now?

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.


I never read the books, I'm talking about the movies. "Hey, we're in a big battle and we're all going to die. Wait, here comes some elves around the hill to save the day! Here's another battle and we're all going to die but wait, there's some ghost army that  Aragorn forgot he had up his ass. The Hobbits are dying in the volcano but wait, here are some eagles that could have done something all along to save them....and so on.

No one complained about that with Lord of the Rings.

You guys contractually required to circle jerk in every Star Wars thread ever or something?

Look. THIS SHOW had f**king lens flare:

nerdsoftheroundtable.files.wordpress.com

They practically invented lens flare. They had lens flare on their title sequence. If it was in space and a star was involved, then it's going to have lens flare.

Was it still an awesome series? Yes.

As one of the few people on the site who A: doesn't hate the prequel trilogy and feel like it raped their childhood and B: didn't give a good goddamn about the lens flare in Star Trek, I'm ok with this.

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.


I don't know if the Force can repel lens flare, but it sure as hell can't repel butthurt.

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.


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.

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.

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?

I was hoping for Brad Bird, but I don't think Abrams is a bad choice. It can't be worse than the prequels.

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?

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.
