J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek

Hi all!

I’ve written about J.J. AbramsStar Trek movie before, talking about the interesting casting he did. But there’s a sense of dread each time I see a new trailer.

Some punk little version of Kirk driving a car into a ravine? The same punk riding a motorcycle past the site where they’re building the Enterprise? Was JJ channelling Thelma and Louise mixed with Top Gun?

And what’s with Uhuru ripping off her shirt? There’s been much debate whether Nichelle Nichols is yelling or not about that.

And then over at Geek Tyrant, I saw this today and it made me laugh. So I thought I’d share it. 🙂

I’m starting to worry about this film. I’m interested. I want to see it, but there’s this feeling of dread building each time I see more footage. Will it be worth the agony? We’ll have to wait and see…

  1. By reading the article I came to know about the Mr J J Abrahm and I will see the film. I think this film is deadly with a lot of fights. I always love to see whose star film is a bit different in the style and characters.

  2. I think the hard core fans who really like the original (etc) will probably not like the newer films unless there is hanging cardboard box light panels and creatures that look like stuffed animals =).

  3. I worry about this film as well. I enjoyed the brainer films with Khan and excessive Shakespeare references, and it seems like all of that is gone now with this one. Who know though…

  4. Well..it’s here, and it is picking up five star reviews across the board. Some are already heralding it as a masterpiece….everything the Star Wars prequels weren’t, in fact. It is not before time Lucas should take a back seat to Roddenberry, too.

    Here’s some excerpts from the UK’s Daily Mail review…a notoriously grumpy and hard to please reviewer at that:

    “The result is not only by far the best of the 11 Star Trek movies, it must also rank as the outstanding prequel of all time.”

    “After the artistic disappointment of George Lucas’s Star Wars prequels, with its terrible dialogue and worse acting, this movie really does promise a creative re-birth of science fiction adventure.”

    “We also get to see the formation of the rest of the crew of the USS
    Enterprise, and they’re all splendidly played with real affection and
    understanding of the TV originals.”

    “It is one of the few movies I have seen in recent years which has
    celebrated intellectual endeavour, the informed weighing up of risks, the taking of responsibility. It is, well nigh uniquely in modern Hollywood, grown-up.”

    “Twenty years on, I predict that we are about to see an explosion of
    interest in the original series.”

    “And, on this evidence, a young and dynamic cast of actors are set to boldly go where no other movie series has gone before: into a new series of Star Trek stories with a prodigious new lease of life. Welcome back, you Trekkers.”

    So, I guess all the dolts that judged this movie on a few seconds of teaser trailer must be feeling kinda silly by now, huh? :/

  5. I totally agree. Though I’m looking forward to the movie, I’m only cautiously optimistic. Guess we’ll see in a couple of weeks. 🙂

  6. I don’t like this type of movie “continuation movie” like superman, street fighter), but sometime, with effects, they can be great .
