Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Oh god, I hadn't even thought what might happen if JJ takes this route with the SW movies

Being direct sequels though, I suspect they might not suffer the same fate.

I completely agree.

I predict Star Wars VII besides having the trademark "bad feeling" line will also contain a trash compactor scene, a hand cutting off scene, someone falling from a great height screaming "noooooooooo..." and the villain saying "I care" at a terribly awkward moment. And that's just in the prologue.
I know you're speaking in jest, but after two Star Trek movies full of gratuitous name dropping and catchphrase quoting, I'm pretty sure that's exactly what JJ Abrams Star Wars movie will look like.

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Soooo... I knew I had made a prediction about Star Trek XII and I thought it was a really good one and I saved the link so that I could gloat when my prediction came true.

March 24 2011
I predict his love interest will die tragically at the end of the film because of a choice that Kirk makes, a choice in which he puts the Enterprise first. I would bet money on this.
Thank god no one took me up on that one.

This is now my NEW prediction which I will one day gloat over.

Yeah, Chewie, punch it! One of the really original catchphrases of Star Trek 2009.
Technically speaking, "Punch it" was already in ST:TNG. Anyone remembers from what episode this is and who's giving the order:
"Half impulse until we clear the nebula, then punch it up to warp 9." ?

So is any of the main characters going to die, leave or turn bad?

What do you think?

They promised us they'd shake things up with the reboot. My guess is that they won't, though. The next film is going to end with all the guys back on the bridge at their familar positions.
Question formulated in August 2012 in this thread. So, M I Rite?
Why would you want this to happen?
The've just been on the ship 5 minutes and you want them dead or on other ships? We've seen the crew on 2 missions and that needs a shakeup?
You know I saw Chekov in Engineering and Scotty gone and I didn't like it one bit.

He's not writing Star Wars, nor are Orci, Kurtzman or Lindelof.

Exactly.

Now, I don't know this (have to browse through the TNG sections to find out), but is it yet equally controversial and being similarly commented and viewed as Pike's line?

Fire up the engines. Half impulse until we clear the nebula, then punch it to warp nine.
That's nothing. No gravitas. The word "punch" is just another word like the word "clear". You have to end your command with "punch it" not squash it into the middle of a sentence. You don't even want any bits of sentence in front of it, "punch it" should be a stand alone.

I agree, the madness may not have been something the regenerating blood could fix.

Maybe the regenerating blood is even the cause of Khan's madness.. and what will this mean for James Kirk?
That's exactly what I was thinking at the end of the movie. It would make for an interesting STXIII.
I think it was more his live on Ceti Alpha V made Khan the vengeful madman we saw in TWOK. I'm sure it had nothing to do with his blood.

Or did you mean nuKhan? I don't think he was exactly mad, either. But it would make for an interesting story if they followed up on that in the next movie.

Speaking of a follow up: Is it just me or did the scene with Khan and his augments in the cryochambers near the end of the movie just scream for a tv series to continue their story?
I think Khan showed plenty of madness at the end, trying to aim the falling Vengeance at Starfleet HQ, and in what we were told of his backstory (goals including the extermination of those not genetically enhanced).

My thought was Kirk going insane, a la the other captains in TOS, no doubt culminating in an "Amok Time" style fight with Spock...

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I can get over the villian being kahn. but what if they make a directors cut of the film that cuts off at least where spock screams kahhn. To me that would make the film so much better.

Would the film have lost anything valuable had the villain been John Harrison, and NOT Khan?
