Wondering if you are being discussed in the troll thread in TNZ.

In other words, it's all in the delivery. And yes, the same goes for some other productions
The troll thread..??

I've been a member of the BBS for 13 years... I think I would have been exposed as a troll a long time ago...

Can't believe that anyone who thinks a little differently is accused of being a troll these days...

You don't have to be a troll to get mentioned in the Troll Thread these days; just do something a little peculiar and you're potential fodder. Standards have really slipped.

^ A lot of the time it's largely a general chat thread. Practically false advertising.

hmmm...

Seems me that Spock is not upset enough for having such a fresh wound. He really just seems somewhat annoyed. Also, am I to reach the conclusion that Khan, like, I dunno, bit his ear off?

Too much of this image makes me think it's just silly. And also needlessly gory. But my objections are more related to the silliness than the goriness.

Khan wasn't the kind of crazy fucker who'd just bite your ear off. He's not Mike Tyson. Khan was an intelligent, cunning, charismatic superman. That's what made him dangerous, not a propensity to decapitate people.

Yeah, and The Joker was never a psychotic murderer, until Nolan had the guts to reinvent the character...

No, as for film, Tim Burton already did that. Jack Nicholson's version was pretty psychotic. And he's been portrayed in varied ways over the decades in the comics, from a psychopath with a sadistic sense of humour to sometimes just an eccentric prankster. Nolan's version was pretty true to the essence of the Joker.

Edit:

Well, at least you're not Photoshopping Gates McFadden's head onto a bikini-clad Nazi.

Re: My Star Trek 2 (2013) Artwork

The first image is just too ugly to be effective marketing. The amputated ear image doesn't effectively convey any sense of danger at all - simply revulsion.

It doesn't do a damned bit of good to call it "thinking outside the box" when you miss the entire point of what advertising imagery is used to communicate and to accomplish. It is not art intended to make any statement whatever other than "buy this."
