Those are 15 reasons why the film sucked donkey balls, but it didn't ruin or destroy Star Trek.
In fact, it did the reverse...and garnered critiucal acclaim unlike any trek movie before it.

Re: 15 Reasons JJ "Ruined & Destroyed" Star Trek

I was being facetious.

On topic: Here's the Twitter page of the author of the article. Not really surprised to find that he's a huge gamer. It's nice that he can use social media to broadcast how many achievements he unlocks in Transformers games, which were, obviously made only due to the success of the Transformers films which Orci and Kurtzman wrote. I guess you can bite the hand that feeds you.

I've seen this a few times and I never noticed that it said Trekbbs, probably because I didn't know what that was until about 2 months ago. I just figured they made up the name. Was it really like that in '09? I know that Trekmovie is like that, but I haven't seen much of that behavior here so far.

The thread titles in the clip are exaggerated. The Onion writers undoubtedly drew upon some of our more... special contributors.

Wow, I always assumed that was a mock up forum. Never saw that it actually says Trekbbs

Copy/pasting a set of screencaps someone made at the time that first appeared:


The Onion News Network folks doctored it somewhat, but it's pretty clear from the icons down the left side, a few visible usernames, and other details what their source images were.

I remember some of the titles from that period (and some of the screeds which were posted beneath) - they really weren't exaggerating all that much. We had some angry, angry people then, as well as some who went just as far in the other direction.

Those were interesting times, those were.

"if a movie was written to make perfect sense and timing, the movie would probably be pretty boring."

Does anyone have an example of a movie that was made "boring" specifically by making sense and not having plot-holes?
The actual principle involved here is that no text can survive a hostile reading. There are extraordinarily few successful films that can't be picked apart on the basis of logic and common sense, not to mention plausibility - if a critic chooses to do that out of dislike for the film.

"Casablanca" is a mess. That said, most people who've seen it don't seem to care for some odd reason.

Thanks for the info. Yes, those and others I'd assume.

Okay from this one I can tell with the top part that they are poking fun at Trekmovie, A Source For Some Things Trek. And I"m not trying to be mean with that; it's just true. Seriously, T'Bonz does better by herself than the whopping 16 people they have listed as staff contributors on their about page. It is what it is.

The forum part looks kind of like the bbs board style though, unless Trekmovie had a forum at one point.

EDIT: I didn't count the 3 global contributors and a few others, so its:

8 Editors
8 Reviewers
3 Contributors
3 Global Contributors

Which makes 22 people on the written content staff. There are also 3 artists listed.

I don't want to take away credit where it is due.

Re: 15 Reasons JJ "Ruined & Destroyed" Star Trek

I signed up to TrekBBS when the very first picture of the new Enterprise was released. My first post was something like "I like it. I wonder what Matt Jefferies [the original Enterprise designer, who died in 2003] would have thought?" and somebody immediately replied something like, "He would have slit his wrists!"

It was a war zone.
