LOOK ON IT!

In all honesty, though... I loved this movie. I think even the couple Trek-haters on this board, if they saw it, would love it. Great movie, great cast, good story, great music... AND 'SPLOSIONS! But we're not talking Michael Bay "Explosions as plot elements" explosions... we're talking the good stuff. Ohhhh yeah...

WATCH IT! WATCH IT NOW!

And those of you who have seen it, shall we discuss? :)

This, so far, was the most epic thing I've seen all year, and it gunna be one of the few movies I'm gunna pay to see multiple times in theaters. I've never been big on Star Trek, and walked in expecting to be disappointed, but WOW. See it now, fools.

AND THE GRAPHICS WERE ORGASMIC.

Going into the movie I was very, very skeptical. I wasn't fond of the idea of a reboot, didn't think the franchise needed one...a redirect maybe after the pansy that was Picard and the traitor that was Janeway...but not a total reboot.

BUT...

After seeing the movie for my third time so far I have to say Mr. Abrams has outdone himself here. The only gripe I can come up with, is the fact that the bridge looks like it was designed by Apple. And that irritates me.

It's made Star Trek good again. In fact, it's made it something entirely new and differently awesome. 9/10.

Loved it.

I haven't seen it, and I was thinking the same thing.

By Apple? I'll look forward to that, should be funny. :lol:

Yeah, I'll admit that I was rather bothered by the rumors of the iPodprise myself, but I found the look actually worked rather than the art-deco crap of the 24th Century.

She took down the Harrison Ford display picture she on MSN and exchanged it for Chris Pine! No further proof is needed of this movie's awesomeness. :p

It's working for me. I see it plain as day.

EDIT: And if it wasn't working before, it should be fixed now.

Yargh, watch the spoilers for those who haven't seen the movie.


In addition, Star Trek D-A-C for the Xbox 360, PS3, (and at some point Windows) is pretty good, I'd recommend anyone who has those consoles give the demo a shot.

That, sir, is Chris Pine. And he definitely has Shatner's mannerisms down perfectly. Then again, you probably wouldn't know that unless you saw the film. But they picked the right guy for the part.

Now, go out and see it, you bum!

And Pine looks very much like a young Kirk. And Karl Urban is a perfect McCoy.

That said, I'd prefer if they switched out Sulu and Chekov for Mitchell and Kelso, who were Kirk's original nav/helm team. Then again, they're not well known (they appeared in the second pilot of TOS) so... :(

I think they need to do something for Chekov at least, that accent's a little thick. :shock:

I'd rank it up there with the "Vicious Gangs of Keep Left Signs". Right into the realm of sillyness. :P
