How about a goddamn spoiler alert?! There are 7 people and a droid in that picture. What's the effing point of watching the movie now?

Spaced Cowboy: karmachameleon: Star Trek (2009) - 95% / 89%

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) - 87% / 90%

It's like all 10% of people who didn't like these movies post right here on Fark!

/I bet the movies they like are so cool that we've never heard of them before...

I'd like to introduce you to the concept of big budget movie shills.  You don't think all the ST budget went into $3.50 flashlights to shine into the camera did you?  I assure you, there was plenty of money left to pay off dopes who have never watched a single episode of star trek or seen a coherent plot in their lives.  That second movie was an 87% if i'm the farking President of the United States and i'm pretty certain i'm just a random guy and not the farking President.

That movie was bad.  If you enjoyed it, you either know dick about Star Trek or are just plain stupid and like flashy, mindless action that makes somewhere near zero sense.

They're actually just going to use that one photo for all of the R2D2 scenes and add everything else in with CGI.

I heard part of the story was released by J.J. Abrams.

Han is going to die, but Chewbacca will bring him back to life after discovering you can bring dead ewoks back to life by injecting them with Jedi blood. Meanwhile Jabba the Hutt who mysteriously survived Han's rescue put a price on Luke's head after being pissed over the rescue. Boba Fett captures Luke, freezes him in carbonite, and gives him to Jabba the Hutt. Then Han plans an elaborate rescue where he tricks Jabba by gifting him R2D2 and C3PO. After the rescue there is a final epic battle where they destroy a Deathstar.

Yeah, at $850 mill worldwide, that last movie was a real flop. They'd be a fool to make any more movies.

Spaced Cowboy: Most of you are massively missing the point of our criticism.


Some of us, sure.

A good chunk of us have also seen TOS and think that Abrams doesn't have a monoply on convluted bullshiat that makes no sense.

www.startrek.com

Like those of us enjoying the new movies and doing the same thing, you can explain away most of the things that may not make logisitcal sense. That doesn;t mean it isn't bullshiat. The new movies just happens to be OUR flavor of bullshiat.

All of this stupid arguing and not one comment had noticed this:

JJ Abrams is wearing the same flannel shirt as George Lucas does.

Wow.

By the way, I liked the prequels in Star Wars and I liked all the Star Trek Movies.  So fark you.

Active introvert: mjbok: Active introvert: So when is this new one supposed to be set? After Return of the Jedi or before Phantom Menace? Or sometime in between?

Basically realtime, so 35 years after the BoE (Battle of Endor).

Mjeck: He really ass raped Star trek; I hate star wars, I hope he farks them with a donkey dick


Yeah, I recall when the reboot came out there was all of this marketing stuff about how "this isn't your father's Star Trek" and they had various cast members and Abrams himself bragging about how they never watched or actively disliked ST growing up.   Like they were desperate to distance themselves from the nerddom.  Are they going to do that to Star Wars I wonder?  "This isn't grandpa Lucas' lame Star Wars!"

I also look forward to riveting scripted lines like "Either the Sith are goin' down, or we're goin' down!"  Jeebus.  I mean, a professional writer wrote the equivalent of that shiat for ST, a professional actor said those words, and the whole crew was there filming it, and no one at any point said "you know, that's really lame and stupid, maybe he should say something a bit more weighty."

ParadoxDice: And considering this is after the trilogy, the droid should be a bit more beat up/aged and not shiny and new.


Funny thing about robots is, as they are not people, they can have parts easily replaced with brand new shiny ones.

So, make them watchable again?

/Every Star Trek film between The Undiscovered Country and Abrams' reboot has been mediocre to terrible. Abrams' two installments have been entertaining space action popcorn flicks.
