The Undiscovered Country is relatively un-cheeseball, I'd say.

I'll get mocked for this, but, the Director's Cut of Motion Picture is an improvement. It's not Khan or anything, but, it's not all that bad.

I cannot believe that they cast fucking Sylar from Heroes as Doc Spock. WEAK. And the rest of the casting is awful, too. The dude playing Kirk? Get the fuck outta here. This movie is gonna be terrible. Weak shit, seriously.

Apparently he's Sylar from Heroes. Disgusting. This dude once tried to cut off the top of Hayden Panettiere's head. That shit is punishable by death where I come from.

You didn't answer my question.

What Star Trek character is Doc Spock? Never heard of him.

Dr. Quinto. Zachary Quinto. A very bad actor.

NSW, have you even seen an episode of Star Trek in your life? Because I certainly haven't.

That's fairly obviously.

It does improve it, but it still goes on for too long.

Agreed. It's really long. But at least it's a rare meditative Sci-Fi film. I suppose the effort was more noble than the result. That's why I love movies like Sunshine and Solaris, they're more contemplative than most of their brethren.

By the way, the fan boy in me loves this fucking trailer, especially the 2nd half. Sometimes, shit getting all blowed up in a really cool way is enough for me.

If it were anything other than the Star Trek brand, I may have liked it, but the 2001 treatment just didn't fit. It's arguably the most dated film of the bunch, too.

Wrath of Khan nails that tone easily, but The Final Frontier, as troubled as it is, almost gets there, too. That one has the best Kirk/Spock/Bones relationship of the bunch... too bad the rest of it sucks.

Holy shit, this new one looks fantastic. And we get aliens on the ice planet? Fucking rad.

the preview on my computer looked pretty good

but when I saw it on the big screen



could that ^ look any cheesier, looks like a SNL skit make up job.

and when teeny kirk pulls up on his motorcycle, that spaceship cgi, could not look any more fake.
