Re: TrekBBS movie ranking thread!

I think we should all thank God that this list did not come out before the film or a few weeks before the film was released and still showing in cinema . Can you imagine what would have happened or how damaging it would have been to STiD box office earning?


yeah...the news is all over the place. trek web, yahoo, digital spy, the Hollywood reporter, the guardian, screen rant, comic book movie....you name it. this awful list has gone viral.

King Daniel is right...most people now think the list is some kind of an authority list that holds the truth when in reality these people are a vocal minority , Many of them driven by hate.

Am sorry but I don't think I can use any words to describe it but hate.

Can you imagine batman fans putting Batman and Robin as one of the top 3 Batman films or over TDKR?

That to me is the equivalent of people ranking ST V over STiD.

PLAIN WRONG.

Yes, this utterly ridiculous list does seem to be going (somewhat) viral at the moment, I guess it's possible some damage may be wreaked on home video sales - I really hope not. I'm just disparing of certain fan types sometimes.

Haha, this story is everywhere right now. Funny seeing the damage control and spin from the usual types.

Relax, and let people have their opinions. I'd rank STID above Generations, so I don't think it's the worst either. Doesn't mean I'm gonna be upset if I learn a poll of fans disagree. Let people have the freedom of expression.

Re: TrekBBS movie ranking thread!

This is why I never get into the debate over good versus bad. It is all subjective opinion and when one person says a movie is either good or bad someone will come in and disgaree and then the fights begin. That is why I just talk about enjoying a movie or not enjoying a movie. It avoids all of that garbage.

I don't know of ANYONE who thinks Batman and Robin are better than any of the Nolan films. It's pretty much regarded as one of the worse superhero films of all time and one that killed the franchise for a time.

Oh, I can think of at one poster on this very board who will tell you at great length how BATMAN & ROBIN is better than the Nolan films which he hates with a blazing, incandescent passion.

Not going to name names, because I don't feel like baiting him, but, trust me, there are people who feel that way . . . .

I don't get into the good or bad arguments as far as film quality goes because it is subjective. I will say what films I enjoy and those that I do not. While I do enjoy the Nolan Batman movies (Batman Begins is my favorite of them) I enjoy Batman Forever and Batman and Roibn more than the Nolan trilogy. The Nolan trilogy is just to joyless for me.

Yeh I thought the same. Everybody's entitled to their own opinion. But if that affects the merchandising of the movie by purporting to be representative of the Star Trek community as a whole then it is a concern.
Though I must admit the BASSSERY never suggested it was but as it goes viral the justification gets lost.

If they are saying 'even the Star Trek fans think STID is the worst'... then its misleading because I don't really think that's the case or even close to it.

Well, I'm sorry but I just can't believe that Abrams would think this movie would be well received considering he was trying to remake TWOK.

By drawing so closely from TWOK he looks like he is just going to remake movie after movie and not produce any original material.

If I didn't know any better I would think he purposely made a movie that would draw fan criticism so he could get out of his committment to Star Trek and take the gig with Star Wars.

Yeah, given the financial success of Star Trek Into Darkness and its generally positive reception from critics, it just doesn't make any sense that Abrams could have suspected that the film was going to be well received.

I suppose the only reasonable explanation is that despite his best efforts, it was a hit.

He's also got to be the luckiest mofo on Earth. Even though he tried his damnedest to sabotage the Star Trek franchise, and failed, they gave him Star Wars anyway!
