Orci has a bad attitude, which you all will come to know in the future.

^^ Isn't it obvious? The next Star Trek movie Orci writes will be called Star Trek Revenge on the Fandom. Another TWOK inspired flick where Orci will either subtly or blatantly rip in to the detractors of his work of Star Trek.

Rick Berman heard way worse criticism during his time with Trek, and he never resorted to anything like that.
That's because Rick Berman had very little passion for Star Trek. For him it was a job, for Orci it is something that he has obviously loved for a really long time.

I would have told the venomous fans to go fuck themselves too.

Re: Orci strikes back

Is It confirmed? Is he real Bob Orci? There is a fake Orci in TrekMovie.

In this case, I think it is odd, to say the least, that Orci should behave in this way.

Of course, there are people who dislike this movie and people who find it very good.

I thought that he were used to it.

Re: Orci strikes back

It was an incredibly douchey thing to say, regardless of whether you like his work or not. However, if I have the right to say Orci can't write scripts for shit, then he has the right to criticise my posts.

Re: Orci strikes back

It's official, I miss Brannon Braga. He was a schmuck, but at least he was a gentleman, and not some buttmad juvenile asshole.

A Hollywood screenwriter becoming upset over a fanboy rant on the internet? Classy Bob. Real classy.

Re: Orci strikes back

Have any of you complaining about Orci ever spent a lot of time reading the comments on TrekMovie? Not all bad, mind you, but yikes...

There's a reason I spend more time here. I only wish more "Hollywood people" would interact with their fans as much as Bob Orci has.

Re: Orci strikes back

His issue was with the article initially. Getting upset over comments is twice as stupid.

Someone should really get him to join here. It's a much better environment.

Getting upset over internet comments is fine. It's his repugnant, elitist opinions on success that bother me more. He's spitting on any writer that isn't famous, and judging screenplay quality purely in financial terms. Undeniably a twatish attitude.

I didn't read it that way at all.

But it might help some of these people to actually go through the rigors of writing a screenplay before they go spitting on the work of others.

I do agree that Trek has become 'one note'. EVERYTHING Trek now seems to revolve around TWOK.

Braga got in trouble with internet fans by saying some of them are "12 years old". You can read it in the below article (which btw was co-written by me, SteveK tried to recruit me to be an editor at trekweb in those days but I declined)

Wow, just what is it with those guys. They knew the fanbase was very vocal. Now some of them don't like the film and the writer reacts all butthurt. That's hilarious.

And the "You don't like my film. But the film made a shitload of money. So go fuck yourselves!" attitude is extremely classy.
I also love when he resorts to "That's why I'm writing movies and you don't." What a horrible attitude. He may be rich and successful, but he's still an asshole.

Rick Berman heard way worse criticism during his time with Trek, and he never resorted to anything like that.
Rick Berman was never an avid poster on comment sites and bulletin boards. Maybe if he was he would have had the same reactions Orci occasionally does, instead of being able to give controlled, civil interviews months removed from any specific insult that might make you angry, and with an opportunity to carefully consider your words in a neutral setting.

Orci's reaction is no worse than the one you give above, calling him an asshole, but he's being held to a higher, unreasonable standard just because he's a writer, as if that negates the fact that he's also a human being who gets frustrated by being attacked. It's part of the fandom entitlement complex, thinking that they should be able to mercilessly insult whomever they want and god forbid if they get a taste of their own medicine in return.

It's also amusing how quickly you change your tune when it comes to celebrities you don't care for. In the past you've advocated for us to hand out warnings to people who insult celebrities who aren't even posters here, but hey, I guess if they wrote a movie you didn't like, that cancels everything out, huh?
