Re: New ST:XI trailer

First impression...

This teaser trailer is kinda cheesy.

But it just may be the right kind of cheesy.

The opening shots of the speeding car on an Iowa dirt road were fine, sparked curiosity, nice action bit when it goes over the cliff. Nice reveal on the future cop - and I myself laughed out loud when the kid stands up and announces "My name is James Tiberius Kirk!"

(I don't think most of the people in the audience with me had any idea that the name meant anything.)

There was a whole lot more Spock in the trailer than Kirk - meaning all it showed was a fairly generic "young rebellious guy searching for himself", whereas the stuff on Spock gets into his dual nature a bit. Got much more of a genuine Spock vibe off of Quinto than a Kirk vibe off of Pine, but, again, all his stuff was very generic.

From that point on it was simply "hey, this is big! It has 'splosions! Here's a gratuitious bra! Here's a shadowy sex scene! Here's more 'splosions!"

I did like Kirk's "Buckle up." I thought Scotty's "I like this ship, it's exciting!" was cheesy (but then most of Scotty's lines have always been cheesy, so that was actually authentic).

And I must admit to giggling giddily at Nero's "The wait is over." and the title card.

*shrug* It might be fun. I will have to continue to reserve judgment until more material gives a deeper indication of story and character.

PS - Quantum of Solace was a giant snore. Guess I'll have to stick to my belief that the only good Bond film ever made is Casino Royale.

I was kinda overwhelmed by the whole thing when I saw the trailer, what with all the jumping about and what not. I'm waiting until Monday so I can slow it down and get a better look. From here though, I'm optimistic about it all.

You guys are seriously considering watching a crappy bootleg shakycam version? As your first viewing of it?

Even if I don't catch it in cinemas this weekend, I'm waiting a couple more days till Monday to watch it in full 1080p HD glory for the first time.
No, I am no longer "considering" that.

Re: New ST:XI trailer

Wow, what an awesome trailer! Yeah the movie may look a bit more frenetic and over the top than we're used to seeing in Trek, but come on. After the dull and lifeless crap that was VOY, ENT, INS and NEM, it's nice to see some Trek that has some real life and energy to it again.

This movie really seems to have that fun, swashbuckling 60s spirit that's been missing since TOS (what with it's dynamic characters, sexy alien women, fistfights every episode, big dramatic music, etc). Yeah I love the moral dilemmas and character stuff too, but what Trek has really been missing lately is that fun and sense of ADVENTURE. Thank God someone is finally trying to bring it back.

There is a shakycam version (which was pretty steady btw). You can get there via the .... I saw it and I'm psyched. The 8th of may can't get here soon enough.
