Re: The Definitive SPOILER Thread. Actual Spoilers.

Well, I like the original better than anything...and I don't make it out to be anything more than it is. I don't consider that anything done since TOS has improved on it in any way other than style. So, no problem.

Damon Lindlelof trend:

If there's a secondary blond female character in one of his TV shows or films, she will have a secret paternal reveal that's treated as shocking but is ultimately unimportant or could have been known all along without any major difference.

Clair <> Jack's father in Lost
Charlize Theron <> Shitty makeup Guy Pierce in Prometheus
Carol Wallace nee Marcus <> Admiral Robocop in STiD

I mean, maybe it comes off as some bigger reveal in the movie itself, but since we already knew who she was for months now and since it doesn't sound like it would make much of a difference to the plot of the film if she was known as Carol Marcus all along, it just seems like a pointless thing to conceal.

It comes across like he keeps trying to have a big Darth Vader parental reveal but can't make it work.

Ah, thanks. Well, as long as it serves a purpose then I guess that's alright. It just seemed like a weird trend.

That's a problem, because everyone knows Khan is Mexican.
They could have at least given Cumberpatch a spray-on tan.
They could have solved that issue with some quick dialogue expose between Kirk and Khan, like:

Kirk: You don't look like the Khan from the history vids. You're pale, man.

Khan: I am a sub Continental supervillain, to be precise. I am pilfering your starship because I hurl it. I hurl it with a deadly accuracy. Khan Noonien Singh is my name. And yes, I know I don't have much of a tan and I speak in a British accent, but if you know your history it really does make perfect sense.


Stuff writes itself....

AbramsTrek is basically a cover band playing Star Trek's Greatest Hits. You understand that going in and it doesn't seem so dissapointing.

Making them bigger hits in the process. Nice trick for a cover band.

Enjoy your re-runs then. But for those that are new to the franchise he's one of the best villians in all of Trek Lore - and much better than the Borg IMO.

I think the story will play out great and Abrams homage to old and new Trek. To new and old fans alike.

I suppose you also liked Enterprise finale, These are the Voyages?

You know, if he does in fact yell it out similar to Kirk in TWOK, it actually makes sense even within the context of the current film. They mention in the spoilers how he is fighting with his emotions over the death of Pike, and over the loss of Vulcan. This last death will be what pushes him over the edge, and this is his way of showing that.

That's a problem, because everyone knows Khan is Mexican.
Plus, there's no Rich, Corinthian Leather in Cumberbatch's ship and Villachaise isn't around to be Cumby's First officer.

Sorry, no sale. BTW, no Mugatu either.
