Which, IMO, was a mistake to do to the character.

Re: What do you diehard TOS fans think of the new movie?

ST has now smashed expectations and had an increase over last weekend in it's SEVENTH week, the only wide release movie to do so. It was up 50.9% over last Sunday alone! Up over 14% from Saturday. It has surpassed STTMP as the highest grossing ST movie even adjusted for avg ticket prices, at over $240 million! I think we're far away from calling it a success now, its actually a phenomenon!

Combined with international sales, it has sold over 46 million tickets!

It's like seeing somebody do an advertisement for Extenze ... look, this week my dick is even bigger!

But in this case, it is a poster telling us that somebody else's dick is "actually a phenomenon!"

As surely as the sun will rise, RAMA will come into these threads and post box-office non-sequiturs.

Warped9, do you you think the "talkiness" of TOS will or will not appeal to modern non-Trek audience goers?
Just for fun, I think we should try to pare some TOS eps down to a half hour by trimming out unnecessary dialogue. Maybe add a few CGI battles with the Enterprise swooping around like an X-Wing. Have Kirk say "Punch it" or "Buckle up" or "Rock N Roll!!!" or "Radical!" instead of "No beach to walk on" or "Risk is our business".

I guarantee many people would like them better.

You're free to decline to do so. Others disagree about what he did, and will praise him.

So it's win-win for the fans. If you liked nuTrek, you got lots more. If not, well hell, you can ignore it.
That works perfectly.

Actually, it's not at all like that. Humor isn't your strong suit either.
