Re: Everything Wrong with STar Trek (video)

How does a "visionary science fiction director" rip off Lost, when he's one of the creators of Lost? Shouldn't that be a nitpick, too?

"How It Should Have Ended" fell into the same rut after a while - "uh, they should have all died right about here" became nearly their only punchline.

Re: Everything Wrong with STar Trek (video)

Actually, there is a good point raised in this. If the Kobayashi Maru is known to be un-winnable, why would any cadet really "face fear"? They're not going to die. Their crew is not going to die. The simulator shown in ST09 didn't even have explosions or incapacitated officers, like that in STII.

I think this is something TNG did much better: the episode with Wesley in SF Academy ("Coming of Age") gave us a much more realistic "facing fear" test.

But anyway, I suppose you must lose yourself in the moment.

Instructors with inflated opinions of themselves can be full of shit. So can cocky students. Oh noes, all our protagonists are multidimensional!

God forbid a movie contradict a minor part of a 50 year old show for the sake of telling a decent story.

The test in question was obviously the psycho-simulator test referred to by Kirk in 'Bread And Circuses' that R.M. Merik failed miserably. And that test, while necessary, isn't more important than the Kobyashi Maru test for command cadets like Kirk was.

As for the lack of explosions, that was due to Kirk changing the conditions of the test so that he would win it; had the test gone as it was supposed to, the explosions would have been there.

And now I know for certain, no one on this board has a sense of humour. That video is hilarious, as is all the video reviews of movies this guy does in the same style. But no, he isn't showing 100% adoration of Trek XI or Abrams and therefore no one can take the time to appreciate a joke. I think this thread actually makes me sad.

Never seen so many people spectacularly miss the point of a video. It's only supposed to be a bit of fun guys, lighten up and laugh at it.

As it happens, laugh at it is exactly right. Or snicker.

Yes, this one is a helluva lot funnier.

No. It pretty much sucks.

The "Honest Trailers" video, OTOH, is funny.

I agree with the video. That is indeed Tyler Perry.
