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

I don't even consider it that gratuitous. Considering some of the costumes William Ware Theiss had on his lovely ladies in TOS, regular underwear isn't exactly pushing the edge.

Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

I don't even count it as a molehill compared to what Trek has given us in the past.

Ha!

Anyhoo, I expect people to always make big issues out of non-existent ones. Star Trek has taken advantage of sexual opportunity as any other genre franchise, so this is nothing new. As I mentioned earlier, compared to some of the outfits William Ware Theiss has displayed on always lovely ladies in the original series (and TNG), underwear is extremely tame.

There have been times when the men have been made into meat racks (though it is certainly more rare). I wonder how often she complained about those incidents?

There is no such thing when it comes to sexism.

I like the io9 article.
Let's complain about the underwear shot but let's also plaster it at the top of the article and the thumbnail to get those views.

Well, no, because it seems like you're answering my post but I don't know how that connects to it.

No. Just because my post follows yours doesn't mean I'm addressing you. I simply made a declaration.

The Alice Eve shot was "blink or you'll miss it". If you looked away for a second or sneezed, you would have missed it.

But somewhere on celluloid, her boobies are naked under that bra!

WON'T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!

I wonder if anyone has asked Alice Eve her opinion on the matter? It is, after all, her body, and it was her choice to make.
