Re: Who is John Harrison (Possible SPOILERS or Insane Babbling)

That brings up all sorts of questions about a genetically engineered superman's sexual prowess. I imagine he can stay awake five times longer than a normal human male after consumation.

So....a minute? Minute and twenty seconds?

Re: Who is John Harrison (Possible SPOILERS or Insane Babbling)

John Harrison is Sauron reborn. Seriously, look at the evidence. Both characters are played by Benedict Cumberbatch. We are looking at the first Middle-Earth Star Trek crossover, with endless sequels where the movie studios can even make more money off the fans than ever before.

Seriously though, I just hope the movie exceeds all the expectations and the villain is not a cookie-cutter "I must have my revenge and destroy everything" type of guy. That would be both cliche and boring.

Re: Who is John Harrison (Possible SPOILERS or Insane Babbling)

A young James T. Kirk whizzes past a boy on the side of the road in a stolen antique cherry red Corvette convertable.

"Hey, Johnny!"

Oh yes, John Harrison will get his revenge for not getting a ride that day. You can be sure of that...

Re: Who is John Harrison (Possible SPOILERS or Insane Babbling)

If you were going to pick a pseudonym that didn't stand out in any way what would you pick..

Khan

Soran

Nero

John Harrison

It's a pseudonym. All along JJ's been laughing at how he will give us just what everyone else in the STID story has as the movie opens, the name John Harrison. And by the end of the movie we and the characters in it will finally know who he really is.

I'll be boycotting the internet the day this comes out until I've seen it.

Isn't it obvious. It's JACOB. He found a way off the island and he's PO'd at JJ Abrams. Hey isn't that a polar bear in one of the screen caps.

Re: Who is John Harrison (Possible SPOILERS or Insane Babbling)

John Harrison sounds like an auto accident attorney whose firm puts those 1-800 "I Can Help" commercials on your local channels during Jerry Springer.

"Injured by starships falling from the sky? Ever been hurt by an unidentified man seeking vengeance? Call the John Harrison Law Firm immediately....we'll get results you can count on!

So....shall we begin?"

Nah. You're thinking of his brother Saul Harrison. Works out of Albuquerque. "Better call Saul"

Re: Who is John Harrison (Possible SPOILERS or Insane Babbling)

I like movie critic Drew McWeeny's theory, which you can read here: http://www.hitfix.com/motion-capture...nto-darkness/3

He's probably not right, but I think it's an interesting theory, and one I haven't seen mentioned anywhere else (of course there are a lot of posts and articles here and elsewhere on the internet that I haven't read).

I've read the part which Dennis quoted in the thread about McWeeny's theory, but I won't click on a link to HitFix anymore - something at that site disagrees violently with my browser or computer.

They went with John Harrison because Ringo McCartney was a too obvious.
