Saw Star Trek tonight...

Good movie. Although, the guy sitting behind me came up to me after the movie and yelled at me for laughing during the funny and amusing bits telling me "It's Star Trek, not fucking Anchorman." What an asshole. It's called a sense of humor, pal, grow one. It's people like that that made me stop being a Trekkie.

2. Like I said, some people take Trek way too seriously.

I should know, I used to be one of them.

11. aaaah, a bit of karma kickback perhaps?

 

When you took it too seriously did you ever scowl and mutter at, or outright scold, people laughing at the funny parts?

12. No.

But I kind of rage quit Trek after First Contact and something that at the time I thought was badly retconned, when in actuality, my previous notion of this minor plot point came from a book that's really not considered canon, per se.

7. I saw it with hard-core Trekkies (well, for my neck of the woods)

all 8 of us, at the midnight show....we roared through the whole thing. Sorry you had to run into the 1 asshole who takes Trek waaaaay too seriously.

8. It's not Star Trek.

And I'm a Trekkie from day one.
(Literally. 1966.)

It has the label, the character names, even the Enterprise.

But Roddenberry's optimism is gone.

It's JJ Adams "I wanna blow shit up!" movie.

23. I agree

I enjoyed the movie but it didn't feel like Star Trek. Oh well.

24. Agreed. But after the last one I didn't expect it to be...

Indeed Roddenberry's touch is gone. So is any semblance of a theme 'about' something. ST was always a thinly veiled discussion on the ails of modern society and the 'what if' of what could be if we could overcome out petty differences.

As an action film and popcorn muncher I still enjoyed it though.

13. Lots of laughs there for us Trekkies

And lots of familiar tropes. I loved it, even though I thought the chase scenes went on too long.

Would have liked more banter among the crew.

Simon Pegg is a hoot!

15. I saw it yesterday, too.

It was okay, but too predictable. I was disappointed that they basically remade "The Wrath of Khan". It was certainly entertaining, but I had hoped they'd come out with a more original story line.

16. Check out this article that pretty much skewers it...


but does it with some humor. Fair warning, it's full of spoilers for those who haven't seen it.

17. He could have changed seats or asked you to be quiet during the movie

That he acted like an ass after the fact and that he wasn't pointing a gun at you indicates he should have been ignored and given no more consideration.

Glad to hear you liked the movie, I am trying to inspire Rot to go with me to see it.

18. ummm...was he a Trekkie?

 

There are plenty of rude idiots who are not Trekkies. Besides, I would have told him "Next time, stay home and wait for the DVD, or pay for all the tickets and get a private screening"

1. I didn't even want to give that ass the time of day.

2. I had to use the can really bad.

I saw Iron Man yesterday and didn't think it was nearly as good.

I cannot forgive the idiocy in the last one-- redesigning the Enterprise bridge and turning it into a mall beauty salon?! Cadet Kirk getting proted six freaking ranks?! Oh hell no!

27. They deal with his early promotion in this one.

Starfleet begins to have second thoughts about their whiz kid Captain with the hero father. And even Kirk begins to wonder if he's got the right stuff.

I liked this one a lot, even better than the first one. But I'm hoping that in the next one, they stop with the fanboy-targeted callbacks and give us an entirely new voyage, something we haven't seen before.
