Re: why did Pine have his hair styled the wrong way in STID?

Just watched Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit , in the opening flashback he's got it styled exactly TOS Kirk style. I think its a toup though as its longer and the rest of the film its crew cut real hair.

Anyway for ST3 he should grow it longer and have it styled the Kirk TOS way like the opening to JR:SR

in STID he has his hair styled/parted on the opposite side to ShatKirk in TOS (unless you count those mirror 'reverse' reaction shots in certain episodes) and the opposite way to how Pine had it in ST09 (which was almost as if to foreshadow the classic Kirk forelock over the forehead style of TOS kirk, albeit bushier more movie Kirk)

its even more surprising when you take into account Pine has it styled the correct Kirk way in real life! (check out all the interviews premieres etc to promote STID) In fact ive never seen him with it swept over the other side before STID or since...so there has to be some sort of reason he had it like that in this film.

I'm sure he took great care in styling it before putting it on that morning.

Re: why did Pine have his hair styled the wrong way in STID?

I mean with the hair . shooting time for ST3 must be imminent and it looks like Pine is sporting a TOS season 2 Kirk style (styled the correct way)

That was a quick save. I was this close to locking the thread for an unnecessary or off-topic bump (of which you've made a few in some of your other threads.)

Re: why did Pine have his hair styled the wrong way in STID?

Chris Pine still looks like fresh-out-of-the-academy babyface Kirk. If ST3 is set into the 5-year-mission, perhaps a beard or stubble would make him look a bit more mature?

Yeah that last pic looks too floppy. Only time shats had hair like that was after a season 3 fight scene

Never mind the way his hair is parted, why doesn't Pine have the pointed sideburns? That's an egregious violation of canon, IMO.

Re: why did Pine have his hair styled the wrong way in STID?

yeh in both movies its abit of a half assed attempt at pointed sideburns.. almost like being afraid to commit! unless they are saving the full on shatner style pointed SB for Trek3 - and the prev 2 movies of 'barely there' SB pointedness were merely a foreshadowing of whats to come (which perhaps will also be true of hair parting) thereby something of a metaphor on kirk himself - he dosnt 'become' the Captain Kirk of TOS until ST3 (similar to the way he didnt get his gold shirt until the end of ST09)
