People have a problem with that scene?

When you have Alice Eve in your movie, you DON'T pass up the opportunity to get her as close to naked as possible.

I object to the lack of underwear clad Zoe Saldana and Rachel Nichols as well as the presence of underwear clad Chris Pine!!!

Well I guess the entire climax of Alien when Sigourney Weaver runs around sweaty and semi-nude was done for artistic reasons.

It's Star Trek.

TOS, TNG, DS9, cripes, Enterprise had the whole decontamination chamber for fan service. Voyager had Jerri Ryan all over the damn place.

It's SUPPOSED to have fan service. Did folks not see the Mirror Universe episodes in the original series or DS9? Or the Original Series ENTIRE female wardrobe? Heck, how many times did Picard drop trou or open a robe for the ladies?

It's not "questionable" taste, it's a long and well established theme. It would be like doing Star Wars without a light saber showing up, or Battlestar Galactica without some horrible fitting uniform riding up on an extra behind a clunky bit of equipment. What's next? Peaceful Klingons who just want to hug their way through the universe? Romulan ale being legalized*?

*yes, for the Trek geeks, I REALIZE that it was legalized, briefly, after the Dominion conflict and the embargo was lifted, but it went back down again, and thus, I use it as an example. Nyah. Nyah. Nyah.

It was a lovely set of matching space panties and bra.

Pretty sure the next Trek movie needs Gaila and Carol Marcus jello wrestling for Kirk's affection.

"copped" to the fact that the nudity was completely gratuitous.

I think it's idiotic. Maybe if they were as witty as they THINK they are, I might enjoy it. Thank God I can turn the stupid things off, I just wish I could set it as a blanket policy, instead of having to do it each time.

As for the scene, who the fark cares? They have plenty of shirtless men for no reason in the movies and nobody complains. Actually, the ones who cry the loudest about a woman in her underwear are the ones who get wet panties when one of these dudes rips his shirt off.

IMHO, this does nothing but make people ignore things like sexism and misogyny when it really occurs, much like PETA does more harm to the cause for animal rights than good.

Shostie: When you have Alice Eve in your movie, you DON'T pass up the opportunity to get her as close to naked as possible.


And yet they cut the male shower scene (Cumberbatch).  You can't tell me that that was any less relevant or more gratuitous than Alice Eve's scene was.  Maybe they didn't want to make the geek boys feel ashamed of their inadequate bodies.

I had a male friend complain to me about Sucker Punch, which I enjoyed for what it was, and he claimed to adamantly hate because it was so degrading to women because it was like a teenage boy's wet dream.

I told him I didn't really care because that is pretty much always what the woman is in action movies - tits for the boys to stare at - so it was no different to what I was already used to.  Or did he think Megan Fox had an actual purpose in Transformers?  This movie had five sets of tits in short skirts instead of the usual one and that's his threshold for feeling ashamed?  Lulz.

/Obvious beefcake scenes in movies are also lame
//No, Ryan, you can leave your shirt on, your abs are not relevant to the scene
 
2013-05-21 03:41:41 AM
Wait, Damon Lindelof wrote this? The same guy who wrote Prometheus, Cowboys & Aliens and the ending to Lost?

In every single project he's been involved in, the weakest link in the project has been the writing. How does he keep getting work? He's clearly awful at his job.
 
2013-05-21 03:44:06 AM
Because nekkid girls are awesome. Duh. Who doesn't know this? Even mostly nekkid ones. Boys are dumb and look stupid vacuuming nekkid.
 
2013-05-21 03:46:11 AM
I'm offended they cut the shower scene, mentioned above! I am a straight male, but I would spoon with Cumberbatch! Or John Barrowman.
 
2013-05-21 04:01:18 AM
I was annoyed the scene was only two seconds long which forced me to find a screen grab so I could become properly outraged.
 
2013-05-21 04:16:48 AM
Yeah I'm kinda annoyed that there was only the same 3 seconds of bra + panties that were in the trailer. I at least expected her to run around a little or something.

Prometheus: box Office - 403 million

Cowboys and Aliens - 173 million

Lost finale viewing audience - 13.5 million.

These are the only facts that studio executives care about. As long as Lindelof's projects make money, he'll keep getting work, regardless of the actual quality of his writing.

If filming a half naked Alice eve is wrong, I don't ever want to be right.

what's next? biatching because there's too much wrist or ankle showing?
 
2013-05-21 05:36:29 AM
I would like to go ahead and say right now that my placement of the following picture of Alice Eve in this thread is entirely gratuitous.

underwear-clad is not nudity, damnit.

Not complaining about underwear-clad, mind you.  Underwear clad is often quite nice.  But anyone wearing underwear is not nude, because that's not what that word means.
 
2013-05-21 05:41:19 AM
Also, this candid bikini shot serves no artistic purpose in this thread. It is here simply because I like to look at it.

Here http://i.minus.com/if7EkeQ4MTciy.gif is a deleted scene that will be on the DVD.

I've linked since there is no longer any way to determine beforehand what merits a 48-hour timeout on Fark.

Sinbox: Gratuitous nudity, you say?

Allow me to take this opportunity to more thoroughly and unabashedly illustrate just what that odd phrase means
nary a one is safe for workplace viewing.

I was more offended that they cut the scene where Alice and Zoe both reach for the last danish in the mess hall and decide to settle the dispute with a tickle fight.

Yea and two of the comments:

#8: She has a smoking hot body with curves.

#5: Maybe its the vantage point but that seem like a very high positioned belly button


Wow...................just. Wow.

FTA-Head producer and writer Damon Lindelof has finally "copped" to the fact that the nudity was completely gratuitous.

Somebody wake Inigo up.
 
2013-05-21 08:11:18 AM
OK, so that makes one script choice by Lindelof that I can fully support.

Preferably with both hands, Janet Jackson style.

Don't wish for an awkward chat-up with HR? Don't get caught looking at these while on the clock.
 
2013-05-21 08:24:38 AM
Gratuitous? Kirk and Carol were involved in the original timeline, I just figured it was a nod to their attraction since the pacing of the film wasn't going to let them stop for a romantic subplot.

While I would have no problem with it being for absolutely no reason whatsoever the scene did have a point.

I dated a woman who ALWAYS matched. She even brought it up when we were undressing. It was something she liked to do.

// And a few other things.
