    I don't want to read this thread yet in case of spoilers, but I am so excited to see this! My sister told me that the writer is the same person who writes "Fringe" which is my favorite show. Yay. I think HilbertSpace will also love it.

    ...While we are on the topic of "Star Trek", I found this gem on YouTube a few days ago.

    That guy needs to go off the Red Bull Latte speeders.

    For some reason, I buy that Amazing Atheist and Jenna Marbles are the type of people they portray themselves to be in their vids; this guy is more a poser.

    Geesh, the effort some people will go to.
    Uhhh.... I agree that it's a silly issue -- it's not really central to the story, it's a "casting difference" IMO that you just accept as a part of the actor change, just like you accept that this Carol Marcus has an accent (although her dad doesn't... hilarious).

    However if you watch the vid, the guy really didn't put much"effort" in that, he was just pointing it out and didn't seem to really care about it (it was a throwaway criticism made as part of his "shtick"), so I'm not sure why you're making him out to be some anal retentive fanboy. He's not the type of geek you're alluding to. Did you watch the whole clip? He's a lot more surface-oriented/casual, not anal.

    His Kirk and Weller impressions were decent enough, the others not as much. he also wasn't really bothered by them cribbing the best moments from WoK, although he commented on Spock's line and how it didn't work as well -- the reality is that it was entirely forced and didn't feel organic, which is WHY it didn't work as well, and then just kind of made a mockery of the power of the original.

    I'm seeing this today. I'll let everyone know what I think.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I'm scared of spoilers so I'm wary of looking through this thread.

    How are people liking the movie? I'm going to be re-watching the first of the reboot series tonight, most likely. I only saw it once when it first came out and don't remember it that well. Then I will see Into Darkness.

    I think it was worth seeing, but you might or might not appreciate some of the scenes/plot. Too much variance in responses.

    Thanks (and thanks for your rep warning).

    Just saw it in IMAX. I thought it was great! I'm not a trekkie though so it didn't hurt my fandom sensibilities. I like the old series because it is so campy and makes me laugh. It will be interesting to see what JJ Abrams does with Star Wars.
