Lindelof On Eve Scene (minor spoilers, hysteria, hyperbole)

That's basically just the result of how those guys make their films. Insert that shot because it looks cool, insert that shot because it looks hot, insert that shot because it looks awesome. And IF you're lucky, you can somehow explain it, but it's not important at all. Most stuff is pointless and has no real intent.

I wonder if all those in an uproar over this have seen Crossing Over?

When are they going to get the sex out of Star Trek and do a good story fit for the entire family. Probably never because women in underwear and sex sells, always will.

I'd be more concerned about my kids seeing a head being crushed than a woman in her underwear.

If it was a topless hunk scene would anyone be complaining?

They just showed a scream. The rest is up to your imagination.

Hopefully, never! "Family" movies are boring movies for boring families. If you are concerned about kids, watch out for the glorification of mindless violence, not for a woman wearing a bikini.

Little kids are pretty perceptive and imaginative. They aren't dumb.

I'd rather my kids see Alice Eve completely butt naked than what Khan did to Admiral Marcus.

That will include the original series, which had it's fair share of scantily clad men and women, as well as deliciously wholesome violence, which means you're going to have to complain to Gene Roddenberry. Unfortunately, he's out of the country at the moment.

I can't believe this is controversial. Broadcast television shows more skin in prime time.

It's not like they're showing Dennis Franz' bare ass onscreen. That was something to bitch about.

Re: Lindelof On Eve Scene

The scene didnt bother me, she was changing into a flightsuit and Kirk couldnt resist having a look... What didnt make sense is you can see they are wearing their gold/red/blue uniforms under the flightsuits so she must have been taking of the dress to put on a shirt/tunic and trousers which is a bit odd...

She was supposed to wear her dress under her flightsuit? It would ride up with every step.
