Re: Star Trek Into Darkness and the 4th wall
That's pretty well done. The "How It Should Have Ended" ones have had a couple of clever bits, but generally come off sort of heavy-handed and obvious by comparison.
For a true example of breaking the fourth wall, watch Ferris Bueller's Day Off and see how many times Ferris talks directly to the camera.
There are also notable examples in Airplane! and Top Secret!
I can't remember if Top Secret!
is in here, but Ferris Bueller
make appearances in this collection:
