The dream sequence will have to be vivid. Very vivid. But I like the idea of him trying to make the film based on it. Sort of like Synecdoche, New York. But with whores.

I also suggest that if we go with a real life Laz, we go with a real life Lance. Lance makes his inevitable move to LA, and it coincides with Laz's attempts to get Hot Rice off the ground. Lance will want to work on the film, so Laz hires him on in some capacity. This lets us do flashback sequences regarding Lance, and his Mom, and the audience will NEVER see the fact that Lazarus is his Dad coming.

With a twist like that, we need to get Shamalamadingdong involved.

Lance will be the Denny to Laz's Johnny.

How about, the studio is interested in Laz's screenplay, but wants Shamalamadingdong to direct, as Shamalama is looking to do something edgy....Laz now has to combat the scumbag producer (likely a Jew) who is trying to tell HIM HOW TO DIRECT HIS OWN SCREENPLAY, A SCREENPLAY HATCHED FROM HIS DREAMS. Lance can comfort him afterwards.

Does Lance's Mom tape her eyelids back and attempt to audition at some point? If so, then I'm in.

Yes. Lance shoots her audition through 15 feet of gauze.

Okay.

Do we even know the plot? Are we rolling with his dream, or should it be about Laz having the dream and trying to go ahead and actually make a film called Hot Rice, against the backdrop of sprawling, hard-luck LA. He'll have to cope with budget issues, diva-like attitude from no-name actors and actresses, a producer with only profit on his/her mind, all while avoiding getting a DUI.
It needs to be like Sunset Boulevard meets Mulholland Drive meets The Room.

Michael Bay would be a better choice here.

Well it was between Moon and Star Trek at the $2 theatre and I went against my indie instincts.

Beginning of the movie was a bit much; Abrams tried to go for a big emotional moment too early, in my opinion. I also rolled my eyes at the Little Kirk Steals A Car scene; that kid needs to get kicked in the face.

After that, I was pretty on board. Pine is hard not to root for; cocky without seeming like a douche (mainly because of the anti-establishment streak). Quinto was just about perfect, Urban over the top but enjoyable. Yelchin over the top but believable. Winona Ryder WTF?! Effective in her two scenes. Bana didn't bother me, and I guess it's a compliment to say he's unrecognizable in appearance and voice.

Not a big fan of the design. What's interesting is that while the Star Wars prequels also had a shitload of clutter, the stuff with the ships was always clean and easy to look at. So many lights and glass it just seemed like they were trying to distract from subpar bluescreen work. I don't know. The action itself was very good though. And speaking of Star Wars, what was with that Hoth/Wampa homage? Was I the only one that thought that? The medal ceremony at the end was a little too familiar as well, as if Abrams was trying to blend the sensibilities of the two franchises and distance himself from pure Trek geekness.

Not sure about the time travel and rewriting history thing. What's the purpose? Just so they had an excuse to put Nimoy in? Of course his presence has weight to it but why not just LET IT GO? Move on.

I'd see a sequel.

The whole ice-planet thing/10-minute Nimoy exposition was pretty eye-rolling for me.

I bought into the rewriting idea though. Sets up this universe as its own timeline free from canon of the original series while technically not being a reboot/pissing off all the hardcore Trek nerds (at least not more than they already were about this movie).

But you got to hear "Sabotaaaaaaaage" in a Trek movie. That's awesome. And Simon Pegg's midget sidekick was a huge WTF, but hilarious.

That's exactly why they did it, and I love it. As long as they don't rehash ideas from the Original Series, then it's dandy.

I think if they're really going to go hardcore, someone like Sulu or Chekhov needs to die in the next film. Really up the stakes.

Mystery Science Theatre 3000: The Movie

Not the first time I've seen it, definitely won't be the last.

I just have to quote it.

Exeter: "They're [the handles] are magnetized!"
Crow: And if your hands were metal, that would mean something.
