Star Trek May not be as "DEEP" as D9, BUT it was fanf*ckintastic!!! So much fun to watch, and I liked the story,

"HEY You got action in my Star Trek!" ... "You got Star trek in my action!"

 

LOVE IT LIKE REESE's

I gotta see most of these movies now, thanks Tara for spedin' my hard earned $$ by making me go see these.If you come with to deliver said Mistletoe Kisses, I'll buy the popcorn, and slushies, and the tequila to put in the slushies.

I look forward to Movie Maven now, good stuff. And Tara is geekier than the two guys that film it with her...AWESOME (And yes, as long as Tara is on screen the two guys names are just "Two Guys"

Really wanna see The Road, and Hope to get to see Avatar before X-mas

 

SUPER SWEET putting Drag me to Hell on here. I loved that film, but at first wondered if it belonged on this list...after Tara's review of it I vote yes. Stapleing eyes. AWESOME

Seeing as it's christmas, (And I'm like 3 days late checking this) I'll keep all negative comments to myself.

Happy Chankwanamas!

Yeah, I was started to wonder where you were!

1-GiJoe J/K Watchmen

2-Star Trek - I am a Long time fan, TNG is the best Show of all time IMO) but Trek was dead and need new life and thats what we got. Sure it was a summer movie all flash and no substance but it was FUN, and way better than all seven seasons of Voyager.

3-Zombieland - can't believe this wasen't on Tara's list.

and in no perticular order D-9, Moon, Drag Me To Hell, Harry potter 6, Up, Terminator Salvation, Transformers 2.

I can't put Avatar on my list yet as I haven't seen it but I fully expect it will take the top spot come Saturday

Dart- I have had a hectic work week, not as much time to surf the net, and post beligerent comment on Mania.

 

Hopefully Tara can forgive me...

 

Damn You Tara! making me like the Movie Maven... how dare you...uh I mean...

Zombieland could have made the list though, such a good zombie movie

Nice rack, Tara.  Nice dress, too.  You can email me some changing room pics for Christmas.  Oh, and next time, it won't be my lips you kiss under the mistletoe.

 

Daffy, I'm not surprised that you disliked Trek, but to bitch about its continuity when there have been continuity issues throughout Trek is just silly.

My top Ten:

1.  Up

2.  Coraline

3.   District 9

4.   Black Dynamite

5.   Moon

6.   Where the Wild Things Are

7.   Watchmen

8.   The Hangover

9.   Zombieland

10.  Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince

If I could count "Let the Right one In," it'd be tied w/ Coraline.

Jakey, when they make it look like Kirk is an only child (he has an older brother) as the first "continuity issue", I knew the rest was going to be a total disregard to the series and the real fans (sorry TNGers). Like I said previously, if Abrahms had remade Star Wars, and made those kind of radical changes in the makeup of the main characters, fans of Star Wars would want Abrahm's head on a pike.

 

Jakester 12/17/2009 3:02:04 PM

The brother ended up in the deleted scenes, if I'm not mistaken.  Just because you don't see it on screen doesn't mean it was disregarded.  What were the radical makeup changes?  I think there were radical makeup changes between TOS and the movies, no?

A few things, Kirk gets his bravado and a lot of his experience from the things that happen on Talos IV (Governor Kodos), a place his dad sent him. Spock served aboard Pike's vessel for almost a decade before Kirk got anywhere near a starship. Chekov is about 10 years younger than Kirk and an Ensign (his first assignment is Enterprise under Kirk). Uhura is also younger than Kirk, they wouldn't have been in Starfleet at the same time. Scotty (who is older than Kirk) was posted to a starship while still in the Academy, not dumped on an ice planet (no matter how convient for the plot device to work).

Let's see, Transmissions from the Klingon homeworld to Earth (at the time the movie takes place) would take weeks (according to TOS) instead of the couple of minutes that Uhura "overhears" the transmission not giving her anytime to warn the crew. The crew can beam Kirk falling at terminal velocity (120 mph) up to the ship, yet can't get a lock on Spock's mom who had just tumbled off the cliff (and whom they had a transporter lock on). They beam the crew to the bad guy's ship (that's orbiting Earth) while they are orbiting Jupiter (this is after the 'explanation' for Scotty's ice planet assignment for beaming Admiral Archer's dog somewhere in an experiment to transport between planets).

*Takes a deep breath* And then there's the red Macguffin element that makes black holes. They go out of the way to show it only takes a small drop to create a black hole, yet when the whole magilla goes up with Nero's ship it creates the same size black hole (in other words, not bigger)......in Earth's orbit.....without any effect to the solar system.

Not to mention, the whole 'alternate' universe angle gets trashed pretty easily. Old Spock knows where and when the Romulan homeworld will be put in danger and how to save it. He knows where the red Macguffin stuff is located too. All he has to do is tell his younger self the details, Young Spock grows up, stops Romulus from being destroyed, stops Nero from going back in time, and everything goes back to the way it was. Something that Old Spock would see as logical.

Mind you, I've only seen the movie once....I may have missed a few more things. :)

I believe a lot of this is answered by the fact that Nero changed the timeline by destroying the Kelvin, and, consequently killing Jimmy T.'s Daddy. 

The age differences I didn't notice, and frankly, couldn't really care less about.  I hadn't noticed issues with the transporter thing, They do seem to emphasise that transporting people is rather difficult, and they got lucky with Kirk, and not so lucky with Spock's mom.  Consequently, I never thought of it as an error.

I do agree that the black hole thing is a bit goofy as a destructive device.

Since the timeline for this alternate universe is already altered, there's no way of knowing if what happened in Spock Prime's universe will happen in Abrams' Trek.

And take a look at TNG and how many different times Data alternates between saying he can't swim to how he says he's been designed to be a floatation device. 

DaForce1 12/18/2009 3:33:16 PM

Jake, TNG isn't really Star Trek either. But don't get me started on that topic.
