Edgar Wright, a friend of Simon Pegg, has said that he directed a one single shot during the scene featuring the Klingons on Kronos, while being uncredited for that shot. See more »
When Kirk grabs Scotty while hanging from the walkway, his thumb is not wrapped around the bar. When the camera cuts to a close up of Kirk's hand a few seconds later, his thumb is wrapped around the bar. And in the shot immediately following, his thumb is not around the bar. See more »
i'm wondering when i'm going to wise up and stop torturing myself with movies like this because they make me want to scream.
i'm a pretty big star wars and trek fan which doesn't make me any nicer toward reboots, but i'm willing to ignore my fandom in the face of great writing. in this case, we are not even close.
to add something to the pot here, the crying was the worst for me. if i have to distantly watch someone cry, it is a huge writing failure to me. unless the character who is crying is some insane person who has major issues, i should be able to cry along or at least come close. some of the tears actually looked like fx to me. for a movie that attempted to have so much emotion, this was very poor indeed. i got home and out of boredom resumed my virgin watching terms of endearment, and was crying right where the viewer was intended to cry. if you have a soul, it's really not hard to write people. WBF-WNS (written by folks with no souls) should really be a new movie rating or disclaimer or something.
a note on expectations. i see a few positive reviews in here that amount to "i lowered my expectations to the very bottom, and the movie totally delivered." i see this phenomenon popping up all over the place in the recent decade, especially with reboots or adaptations. frankly i have a problem with this line of thinking. i think people who are handed large sums of money should be held fastly to the task of not wasting my time and energy. i expect to be moved when i sit through a movie, not thrown. i expect to grow in some way, rather than shrivel. and if you say i ask too much, then i ask you: what would you create with a million dollars?
