Star Trek 2009.
Liked it enough as an action Flick, dissapointed in it as a star trek film.
Still better by far than the Lucash prequels.
Don't defend J.J. Trek, it was shit up one side and down the other, and you know it.
Sky, you sadden me. You're the guy who posted big about boycotting this movie, then you went and saw it in theaters within the first couple of days of its release anyway, and apparently you just watched it again recently. I wouldn't be surprised to find you own it on DVD (recieved as a gift, no doubt).
No I never bought the DVD, yes someone gifted it to me. I would have loved if their was no lens flares and shaky cam so people could actually watch the acting, or cinematography. Also a version without the overacting and bad accent of Bana, or Kirk as a narcissistic asswhole who is instantly made Captain at the end of the movie.
I hated how they made the Kobiyashi Maru a joke. How they made Scotty into a bumbling idiot savant, and who has some sort of midget alien sidekick. I hated the rap. I hated the music video mtv mindset editing and the sense it was made for people with no attention span whatsoever.
I would basically put this movie on par with nemesis which i watched recently and was not as bad as i remembered it being. TREK V was worse than i remembered last i watched it.
There is no version where you can turn off the lens flares. Normally something like that would make me turn the movie off within the first ten minutes.
Still its no more worse than JJ Abrams subtanceless directing of Lost, Alias, MI3, Fringe etc.
It was like fast and the furious, Cloverfield and transformers mixed with Trek. A sickening combination and still not as bad as the star wars prequels. Perhaps Next Gen was my Generations Star Trek, or because i like star wars better, i don't know.
Maybe because never expected anything else from JJ. He never made a THX 1138, American Graffiti, or Star Wars. I expected better of Lucas based on his history as a director.
Recently i gave Crystal Skull another chance with a free library rental. Worse than i remember it in theaters. Seriously The prequels and indy IV get worse on each viewing, i don't know how that is possible. When Raiders, Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars get better. The more times i view Jedi, Doom and Last Crusade they loose a bit because of their bad parts still not the complete shit in the toilets that those recent Spielberg and Lucas attrocities were.
