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.
"They quickly settled on the slender island at the head of the bay, which they called 'Mannahatta', after an old Indian word thought by some to mean 'island of hills', and by others 'place of general inebriation'."
