Re: First Cut of 'Star Trek XI' Finished
Yes, it's petty and juvenile to joke about the man who helped take Star Trek
from "sittin' on top of the world" to "full of fail" in the span of a decade.
This early positive reaction to the screening is good. Special effects and music can only add so much, and shouldn't be expected to carry a film. So if this reaction is strictly off the story and performances (and whatever ILM has completed to date), then I think it's a good sign.
"For those of you playing the home game, this is what is known as a 'Prince Albert'. And I'm sure that was his last wish. 'Victoria, I'm dying. I want you to name a museum, a performance hall, and a bolt through the cock after me.'"
