Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

For what it's worth I still think we'll see Episode VII by the summer of 2015. If there's a delay then there won't be anything we the fans can do about it anyways, but if principal photography can get underway by late this year or early 2014 at the latest I still think we'll see the new film in cinemas more or less on-schedule.

New Abrams comment on the whole Wars-Trek thing

"It's a little bit like being in the middle of lunch and trying to think about what's for dinner."

.
Waits for someone to come along and complain about Abrams insulting Trek and it's fans by calling Trek "Only lunch", while honoring Star Wars with being Dinner
In many cultures lunch is the primary meal of the day. I'm okay with that.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Meh. They're both edible product that occasionally produces crap.

Not as much difference as some would like to think.

He said: "We're in the middle of 'Star Trek' so to think about 'Star Wars' and the release date, all of that's far less of a concern than making a movie that's worth your time."
"In the middle of Star Trek?" Into Darkess is over two and a half months away from its theatrical release. He should be a lot further along than "in the middle."

What the hell have these ass clowns been doing? They spend three years telling everyone the script would be done "by the end of the month," delaying the movie's release date by an entire year, and now two months from release date they're only in the middle?

These jackasses are squandering the Trek franchise. This is why we need a Trek traditionalist back in the fold calling the shots. At least people like Berman and Braga got scripts done on time and never delayed release dates. I guarantee, September 2002 Nemesis was further along than in the middle.

"In the middle" because he's already thinking about the third Star Trek movie.

Maybe they should have.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

$258 million domestic box office along with an Academy Award for the last film hardly seems like "squandering the franchise," dude. One can quibble with the Abrams vision and the timeline his films depict, but saying the Trek franchise has been squandered when it's more popular and profitable now than it's been in many years is a bit much.

Trek's making money and it's alive. As much as I loved Enterprise you couldn't say that when it went off the air.

Willow makes everything better.

What episode is that from? Hannigan looks older than she does now.

Now all the man needs to do is to make 2061: Odyssey Three and he'll be the King of Sci-Fi!

Oh no, what a terrible book, I hope no one ever tries to film it!

What he'd have to do in order to become the King of sci-fi (although, let's face it, he already is), would be to reboot The X-Files.

Reboot The X-Files? Mulder and Scully are in their early twenties, Mulder an awkward nerd who never gets to hang with the FBI's cool gang, Scully a smoking hot babe who is forced to work an assignment with Mulder by that buzzkill authority figure Skinner. The story takes a twist by the arrival of Mulder Prime, played by David Duchovny.

Can't be any worse than the show my wife forced me to watch in the 90's.
