It'd be the greatest film about a hotel party ever filmed.

Just imagine the 3-D IMAX effects when the TV set hits the street below.
And when the Rolls Royce rises from the swimming pool, heads will explode.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Breaking Star Wars news just hitting as we speak:

The British collecting and fan website Jedinews (.co.uk) has just posted an update on their home page as well as over on Facebook.

The Clones Wars has been cancelled. The Season 5 finale where Ahsoka quits the Jedi Order, abandons Anakin and walks away into the distance will be the end of it.

There's a possibility any unaired stories that are currently under production could see DVD and BluRay release under the new Disney ownership, but the weekly television series appears to be dead.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

I have a great distaste for Star Wars, but perhaps it is more a film that Abrams is suited for. Honestly, the latest Star Trek movie was HORRIBLE. There was not nearly enough dialogue, nearly no sexy technobabble, and the idea of a reboot that branches off from the universe we know has severe complications. Why do all the ships look better than the Timeship from Voyager which design was most likely from the 29th century? Why are the crew so suddenly shoved into a position where even with how young and inexperienced they are, are given top-tier positions? Seems convenient for sequels, huh?

What they should have done is dismiss the previous canon completely, and done a complete reboot. Now every time I think of the events after Nemesis, I get a head full of popular culture mediocrity. It just doesn't make sense.

I'm just used to a level of quality in Trek, and the latest movie certainly did its job. It brought "Star Trek" to a larger audience. The problem? They aren't seeing the real Trek.

Because it was a big-budget movie made in 2009. If you can recast James T. Kirk, you can update the look of the 23rd century just the same.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Starfleet used retrieved sensor readings of the Narada from 2233 to advance its own technology further than was originally achieved in the Prime timeline. Even Abrams and his people suggested as much to explain some of the stark technological and aesthetic differences between the original history and what Nero created with his arrival.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

That's a handwave, just like the refit in The Motion Picture. What they really did in 1979 was re-imagine Trek's look for a big budget movie. They did the same here.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Real Trek is what ever CBS says it is. Currently that's the movies JJ Abrams is making. Oh and it is a quality product. Previous Trek films, not so much. (Though I enjoyed many of them).

So you like technobabble? I guess there had to be at least one person who does. Hey, if you like the technobabble, wait for the TNG reboot. This one is TOS where the TB is minimal .

The ships look "better" because the movie was made in 2009 not 1999.

If you saw the movie you know why they were placed in their position in spite being young and inexperienced.

Its a reboot, clean or not. The old continuity isn't coming back either way.

What events after Nemesis? Romulus was blown up. That's about it.

Yep.

The interference of Nero in the timeline can only take you so far. As Dennis might so eloquently put it, that's just a fig leaf. You can see something busting out from behind the fig leaf, especially in the form of the Kelvin.

You want a big budget 2013 summer blockbuster movie to look cheaper than a crappy UPN TV show from 15 years ago?

Plus if you love nonsensical, last-second deus ex machina technobabble so much, perhaps you should just stick to Voyager.
