Shawnm750West Jordan, UTThe sad fact of the matter is the new
Star Trek franchise re-booted everything, including past charaters - and slipped
them into new screen plays hoping to draw former fans, and creating new one to
combine and make more money.L-A-M-E.It's sloppy
creativity -- like a lazy high school kid who can't write a paper, so
he ends it by suddenly having the character waking up and having it all be just
a dream.Star Trek was great because it was deep THINKING.Every
week was something new and completely unexpected.This is like taking
Bible or Book of Mormon characters, and then rewritting them with nw stories
just so you can sell more books.It's plagerism at best.This hard-core 45 year and $1,000's of dollars later Trekkie
won't be seeing or patronizing any of it....
@BYU Track Star - I don't know why it is you and the hard-core Trekkers
seem to think that Kahn's role can only be played by a Latino (in spite of
the fact that Kahn's character is actually of Indian decent...) While
Ricardo Montalban did an amazing job in his portrayal of Kahn, actors in any
remake/or re-imagining of a movie or play need to be free to take a role and
make it their own. Benedict Cumberpatch did a terrific job. I personally
don't want to see Antonio Banderas doing is best impression of Ricardo
Montalban playing Kahn.
I watched this movie yesterday.I've been a Trekkie since the
original series, and I gotta say I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. Sure,
it's different than the original series and its successors. Things change
over time -- that's a fact of life. Nonetheless, this was a fun, exciting
pic with great acting, especially by Chris Pine in Kirk's role.I went with my parents -- both in their 80s -- and they also had a lot of fun.
Loosen up and enjoy!
Friends, I have met the enemy and he is us. Friday night I met the
latest Star Trek Villain, One named John Harrison. Sadly, he is (Spoiler alert)
not Khan. Ricardo Montaban played Khan with great brio. Although the Harrison
character is motivated by revenge against Star Fleet leadership, Harrison comes
across as a souless Terminator-sophisticate. Personally, I like my villains with
more skin in the game. Had they placed his Wife and kids in hyper-sleep too that
would have been more to my understanding of Knan's motivation. Casting
wise; Yes, Ricardo is on his long voyage home. Antonio Banderas could have stole
the movie IMHO like Ricardo did 30 plus years ago. Nevertheless, Paramount will
make alot of money on this picture
Want a good movie? Watch Howard the Duck!
Eye candy to little kids and ignorant movie goers...True Trekkies
hate the "dumbing down" of the franchise that lastest 50 years just to
draw in the non-Trekkies.It's new mission -- to make more
$money that no man has made before....
I loved it and have seen it twice. It has great character development. Have you
seen it wer? Go take a look. I bet you'll really enjoy it.
Just another ride into animated destruction of nearly everything in the
