Re: William Shatner Calls J.J. Abrams "a Pig" for Hogging Both Star Tr

Every fucking thing Shatner says is at least 1/4 joke.

You can tell right away who is joking in those threads and who doesn't care one way or the other (they're a minority).
They are also neither "friends" nor "acquiescences" of Abrams.

Seriously, don't even try.

Yes - they are neither friends nor acquaintances of Abrams.
And they are joking - you can tell that by what they are actually saying.

Shatner was not joking, but insulting an acquaintance - you can also tell that by what he was saying.
This won't change regardless of you being unable of processing it/not wanting to accept it/whatever.
As such, deal with it - instead of trying to hand wave with out of context quotes and irrelevancies.

Abrams should have Shatner play a Jedi in Episode VII.
OMG that is too funny
And contains a kernel of truth.

A cheap action movie, that's what Paramount wanted and what they got.
Of course, what they also got was the best of the eleven movies.

Indeed, which reinforces the original point, that the best and most popular Trek movie is an action movie.
