Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

Even for fans of new Star Trek I'm not sure losing JJ is going to be all that devastating. For the most part I think changing directors can keep a movie series fresh. It's not like this is his baby and we can't even imagine anyone else making a good Star Trek movie. We've had good ones by other directors before, no reason we wont have more after him.

Hmm so between now and 2016 (Trek's 50th anniversary) JJ is supposed to direct and produce, Star Wars VII, Star Trek XIII, and Mission Impossible 5, and any other movie and TV projects he aspires to complete....
I hear he might also be taking over as Pope and rebooting the Catholic church now that Benedict XVI is stepping down.

It's worse. A bunch of ungifted dilettantes are in charge.

Why would they want that? Are they afraid that there would be three successful Trek films in a row?
I guess they don't want to wait for the King of Lens Flares to finish with all those other projects.

Because a group a "fans" want Star Trek to remain something only a small and shrinking fanbase enjoys until it eventually dies out.

No. Nothing would be worse than that.

In the meantime, most of us are enjoying the new Star Trek.

And Abrams is not going to "take a break" after the Star Wars movie.

With all respect to him as an artist, I hope he's more of a director for hire in Star Wars - do the technical stuff great but leave the blobby look to Star Trek. Here it was fresh, in Star Wars it'd be doing it wrong.

...not that I can remember anything about them, but it's edgy and post-TOS Trek's smooth, aren't they? Maybe the prequels are more blobby though. Still different from Trek.

Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

Dix, stop being so selfish with this call for tired rehashed cheese trek, the needs of the many easily outweigh yours buddy.

There is a huge back catalogue of berman-era nelix cheese fest trek you can loop over and over.

^Can't there be different new type of Trek? Also he's got to tell someone how it's ruined to him. Otherwise things would progress like American Psycho

Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

I feel like Abrams' presence or absence as director of the third film is largely irrelevant. Given the success of ST09 and assuming the success of STID, Paramount aren't apt to sign off on some massive tonal or stylistic shift for the third film - don't mess with success and all that. Any incoming director would presumably be required to stay within shouting distance of Abrams' treatment of the material.

Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

The original 6 movies had different directors, yet the styling and tempo of storyline seemed to carry through all of them.

All though I think ST V had very much lead character self-indulgence in it not dissimilar to what you'd find in Insurrection and Nemesis.

You have no clue what you are talking about.

Wow, yet another joke about lens flares! I've been hearing this silly joke for four years and it never gets old!

Why not?
You stated that you think he should not make the films anymore. I asked you why. "Why not" isn't a valid answer.

The man is a con artist.
Yep, he conned people out of $300 million dollars of their money, and looks to be about to do the same thing again four years later. And in all that time nobody's caught on to his dastardly deeds. He's a con artist, alright!

Meyer's day has come and gone. I think he'd be ill-equipped to make a summer tent pole movie now.
