All the Trek fans hating on JJ Abrams. I sure hope some of you get what you deserve.


JJ did great with Trek. the critical and commercial success is solid proof and now that JJ is gone , here we are scrambling for shady directors.

Its so sad...a lot of trek fans rather see Trek stay second rated to star wars just for the purpose of casting a director with a shady resume.

Wars had JJ, Trek should get Spielberg.
Warning for spamming.

The bolded portion is also something from which you've been asked on several occasions to refrain.

Um... what? I don't understand this comment on any level. Could you explain?
He feels some kind of connection to JJ Trek, and defends from aggression via retaliation, while failing at empathic concern.

Well JJ is an A list director, now that he is gone Trek might have a B list director that would mess up the franchise. the same franchise that JJ has helped greatly and all what many TOS fans have done is spit on he man. so there. Some of you might just get what you deserve

How about Jon Favreau or Gavin Hood or Joseph Kosinkski?

All have done big budget sci-fi.

Director does not concern me too much. I think they should add a TNG-era writer & producer to the team because I think they can assist K&O and maybe help to prevent K&O doing stupid things.

Jon Favreau does too naturalistic to fit Trek. Kosinski's more like it.

That will be enough. serenitytrek1, you are on very thin ice at this point, and are strongly advised to stop posting until such time as you are able to exercise much better judgement in choosing what (and what not) to say.

I think marrying Kosinski with a Kurtzman & Orci script would be great.

I have my reservations & annoyances about these writers but I must admit that they have delivered two funny, witty and hugely entertaining movies. They just don't really make a great deal of sense. Kosinski OTOH has made two dull movies but they made more sense and looked fantastic with excellent action set pieces. So putting the two together should fix everything?!

oh gosh, I don't know what to say anymore, its like I am always misunderstood on this site and it is not my intention to come off that way.

I guess all I am saying is that it is unfair how some Trek fans hate on JJ's Trek films. JJ did good work with Trek this past 7 years and now that he is gone he may be very hard to replace.


I do believe some of the fans who didn't like JJ's Trek films may come to appreciate him now that he is gone.



I have also deleted my comments on Spielberg so you dont have to mark it as spamming anymore. It was not my intention to spam this site.


peace.....


lastly rottentomtoes.com just listed their best summer films since 1975. Trek 09 and STiD made the list, Trek 09 is even ranked higher than star wars episode 4 and 5.

LINK:http://www.rottentomatoes.com/guides...ovies/?_r=true

that's says a lot about the great work JJ has done for star trek.

I'm just not getting your point. At all.

It's entirely fair. It's called opinion.

I love what Abrams and, to an even greater extent, Damon Lindelof did with LOST. I don't like Abram's version of Star Trek. It's just not my cup of tea.

I don't need Trek to have an A-list director. I don't need Trek to become the cool kid. I just want a good story. And you can't blame JJ Abrams' critics for the fact that ID didn't rise to the heights you apparently want it to. ID did very well for a Trek film. Be happy it was successful enough to make the studio very happy and guarantee another film. Star Trek will never be the monster Star Wars or Lord of the Rights or most super hero movies are. Never. But so what? If you enjoyed the movie, what does it matter?

I would move mountains for Steven Spielberg to direct.

I would also do the dame for Brad Bird,

I would even take James Cameron as a director for Trek 2016 as long as he does not write the script.


David Yates and Peter Jackson will be cool directors for Trek as well

Am sorry to break this to you guys but it would be better if trek 2016 gets an A List critically acclaimed director.


Bryan Singer is great, he directed X2 and produced First Class , it just happens that both films are considered to be the best X-Men films. However I am not a fan of how he incorporates one sided political/social propaganda in his films.
The source material for X-Men is "one sided political/social propaganda". And there's nothing wrong with a writer or director using a film to promote their point of view.

Speaking as a huge x-men fan, who has read all the comics for 20 years. I would disagree. X-men was about tolerance and tolerance is never one sided.
Been reading X-Men for 40 years, before they were all new and all different. It's message contains the same "political/social propaganda" that Singer's movies do.

The intolerant would probably disagree with you. Mutants are a metaphor for every group that was denied a "seat at the table".

I like those names and there movies. I would like add Martin Campbell to the list of directors I would like for this movie.

They should add some women in their writing team and also an older seasoned writer who can elevate some of the dialog at times (even nick meyer )
