I listen and watch stuff with the ‘directing’ team and ‘writing’ team and ‘producing’ team… and they talk about about creating a ‘whole new world of Star Trek’, and ‘allowing everyone to experience Star Trek the first time’. ARGH! If you wanted to create a ‘whole new world’ why the hell didn’t you make your own story and not jump onto a franchise… Oh yeah, you’re a lazy putz that needs to jump onto the dead horse that the idiot Rick Berman brought about.
These are the same idiots that brought us Enterprise… Yeah. I’ll just add this to the list of stuff that will get me annoyed to no end this summer:
- Star Trek
- G.I. Joe (yeah, not the Greatest AMERICAN Hero but some multicultural mish-mash of crap)
- Transformers 2 (not like Transformers got me annoyed enough)
Joey Snackpants, Esq., taking rants to the next conclusion…
I have seen Watchmen and I am impressed… more tomorrow.
I have also seen the new Star Trek trailer… and there best be some reprogramming of a simulation in that film, or Abrams will be up there with Berman and Braga. There’s some parts of Trek lore you don’t f’ with!
For people that have followed me for years, they will know the hatred that burns deep in my soul for Rick Berman and Brandon Braga, the two men I truly blame for the complete decline of the Star Trek franchise. My intolerance of Star Trek: Enterprise created many a heated debate with my close knit network of friends and geeks. Retcon annoys me to no end, especially when its done with a wide brush, like Enterprise was. (We can talk later about why I tolerate it with my on going love of DC Comics).
When I had originally heard of the J.J. Abrams reboot… I was EXTREMELY upset. In retrospect, I think this emotional outburst was more in reaction to decision to not have the Greatest Actor of our time Mr. William Shatner reprise his role as Captain James T. Kirk (while Nimoy is returning as Spock). Recently I have been reading a number of articles… and rewatched a good bit of James Bond films (which recently had a very successful reboot), and I am actually mildly interested in seeing how this new Star Trek film does…
Oh, but I still think Lost is a waste of time after Season 1.
