    Do you really think it's about "giving" anymore? Disney just spent 4 billion bucks on the franchise .. I highly doubt that they're thinking about "giving" in any sense of the imagination. It's all about the money (not saying that it wasn't when Lucas came up with it).

    No more CGI-heavy Star Wars. Boo, hoo, hoo.

    As pinkgraffiti said: It has been played out for some time.
    I'll still be watching even if it sucks. Why? Well, because sci-fi (even bad sci-fi) is hard to come by these days and I'll take whatever I can get ... even if it turns out to be crap.

    A lot of sci-fi is coming out this year, actually. Star Trek Into Darkness, Iron Man 3, Riddick, Gravity, Mad Max: Fury Road, Oblivion, Elysium, Pacific Rim, Godzilla in 2014 (my fav)...

    You can thank Avatar for most of those movies, lol.

    I'm really excited about it. When I was talking to my friend about the new Star Wars movies being announced I said "Man, I just wish they could get JJ Abrams to do them, he did such a stellar job with the Star Trek reboot, too bad he can't do this one :C" but then he was announced as the director and I freaked out lol.

    I think he showed marked skill with Star Trek because was able to convey the original essence of the characters but still execute it in a grand and new way.

    I think he has respect for the source material and will hopefully put back the fun and whimsy of the original trilogy that the prequels were severely lacking in.

    Story-wise, I hope they take things in a completely different direction than the Expanded Universe books. Maybe get some inspirations from it here and there, but a straight up adaption would just be so boring and uninspired, not to mention creatively limiting.

    What an ass.

    A certain "Star Trek" veteran feels that J.J. Abrams has indeed boldly gone where no man has gone before ... and not in a good way.

    William Shatner, known worldwide (and perhaps beyond) as the man who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original "Star Trek" series and in seven feature films, was recently asked about how he feels about "Star Trek" director J.J. Abrams now also taking the captain's chair on "Star Wars." Shatner is not as enthusiastic as others have been when it comes to Abrams pulling double duty on arguably the two biggest sci-fi franchises of all time.

    "He's being a pig," Shatner said during an interview with Movie Fanatic. "He's collecting the two franchises and holding them close to his vest. He's probably the most talented director of that ilk that we have but he's gone too far this time."

    By "this time," Shatner is probably referring to his first run-in with Abrams, which involved the possibility of the elder Kirk making some sort of appearance in the 2009 "Star Trek" reboot. That obviously didn't happen, though -- at least according to Abrams -- not for lack of trying.

    "We actually had written a scene with him in it that was a flashback kind of thing, but the truth is, it didn't quite feel right," said Abrams in a 2008 interview with AMC. "The bigger thing was that he was very vocal that he didn't want to do a cameo. We tried desperately to put him in the movie, but he was making it very clear that he wanted the movie to focus on him significantly...

    "I think of him as a buddy of mine; I've taken him out for sushi," said Shatner in his interview with Movie Fanatic. "I think it's time for J.J. and I to have another sushi and let me put him straight on two of the largest franchises ... and not employing me in either one of them I think is just foolhardy."
    1. Kirk is dead, and Shatner's not THAT good of an actor despite being a scifi icon.
    2. I don't think it's Abrams who is being a pig.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Couldn't agree more on all statements. While I'm a huge ST nerd, Kirk wasn't the one that made the series. If anything, he always annoyed me, such an over-acting, narcissistic buffoon.

    Now Abrahms, I can get behind. Can't wait for the new ST and SW movies!

    These movies will suck no matter who directs them.

    I'm sick of JJ Abrams.
