A hell of a kind response by Abrams. Kudos.

Bittersweet story.


Reminds me of Fanboys.

Eric: Hey guys.
Windows: What?
Hutch: What, man?
Eric: What if the movie sucks?

Re: Dying Trek fan to get STID personal screening

Whatever you think of his interpretation of Star Trek, it is obvious that JJ Abrams is a decent human being.

Once again, fuck cancer.

Jees. We think we have problems.

Well done to JJ Abrams for the gesture, proving that the humanity is not completely devoid of -ironically- humanity.

There must be none of us here untouched by cancer.

Fuck cancer.

Nice Gesture

Both a heart-wrenching and uplifting story, Abrams called the wife of a terminally ill man to confirm that he could set up a private screening of his forthcoming "Star Trek: Into Darkness"


http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-...000643743.html


Just like the Fanboys movie.


Nice gesture.

That it was.

However, there's a thread discussing this already, so I'll just merge yours with it. Stand by for a moment, and...

I say that when we see this film this summer that we should go in tribute to this gentleman and in tribute to Bad Robot's act of kindness.

The word is given... warp speed.

Damn. Same age as I am.

Glad he got to see Into Darkness before moving on to the final frontier.

Yes. Good for JJ (something you won't normally here around here, but I'll keep saying it). Condolences to his family.
