Great pic^

RE: Trek 2, I am confident in the screenwriters, Orci, Kurtzman and especially Lindelof but fuck...I just hope someone else tackles the direction.

Like Jack Bender. That would be perfect. It's time to let him shine in his own feature. JJ Abrams can't get out of his own way.

Meh, J.J.'s talents are perfectly suited for Star Trek on the big screen. The guy somehow manages to make you actually care about the rag dolls being tossed around in a giant action setpiece. He has a talent for keeping you emotionally invested in the characters when shit starts exploding.

Make all the lens flare jokes you want about the reboot, but it was the first time space travel has felt dangerous and concrete in a blockbuster in quite a while.

If only 'lens flares' were the only punchline.

I paid no attention to lens flare until someone pointed that out in a review.

Meh, mini Jar Jar and Budweiser engineering plant are minor gripes for me.

The optimistic/light tone of the movie worked really well in the spirit of the original series, and the general audience I saw the movie with was right in the palm of the writing and direction. Pacing / comedy beats were nicely interspersed but never added up to adding too wacky a tone to things.

I really can't say too many bad things about ST. It was really that well put together.

At least mini-Jar Jar didn't talk! Scotty just yelled at him to get down from things. I loved those moments both earnestly and for imagining the Kurtzman/Orci thought process.

J.J's Trek has only grown in my estimation the last couple years. I think it's nearly flawless at this point for everything it is and tried to be. And yeah, I feel it's remarkably faithful to the original series.

He comes back later on the season, but only for a two-episode arc.

That's great. Without wanting to get too off-topic beyond one more post in the wrong thread, just wanted to say the whole pre-credit sequence of the pilot was pretty breath-taking. Now only 10 minutes into it though, so who knows how the rest of it will go... but yeah.

Hate to be a downer, but that may be one of the series' finest moments. I can continue a conversation about it in the TV thread with you.

I'm a huge fan of the JJ version as well. Not perfect, but what the fuck film is.

Tonight's TNG rerun has Ensign Ro on it.


I wouldn't mind engaging with her, if you get my meaning.
