Re: Cho Fortunate To Land Sulu Role

^^I'm with ya on that. I was really pissed about ENT being cancelled, just as it was starting to find its feet. What pissed me off more was the gloating of those who didn't like the show. I stood with a placard outside Paramount's offices in the 60s. I can't believe a Trek fan would petition for a show's demise.

I'm no different than those who bash Enterprise, I'll admit. I hope Abrams movie does so badly, it'll make Serenity look like a blockbuster in comparison.

You're doomed to disappointment no matter what.

I hope that arrogance comes back to haunt you in spades.

Why? why do you hope it does badly?
I am just curious...I don't understand that line of thinking...

Re: Cho Fortunate To Land Sulu Role

Ho-kay, Matt, you might want to set it back a bit, ok? There's a lot of people placing hope that this movie will be true to Trek and reinvigorate the series. I'm not saying your point isn't valid, but I'm saying you've made it already, no need to rub it in people's faces, because that can easily be seen as trolling.

Can be seen as trolling? And Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wanting to wipe Israel off the face of the planet might be considered anti-Semitic.

On a side note, having an Asian be in this movie will create more than enough Good Will Riker unconditional gushing to even out MattJC's unconditional Stewey-ness.

Only if Matt starts posts about wanting Abrams shot.

It's pretty much impossible for a movie to do worse than NEM.

No it isn't.
There have been plenty of movies that have made less at the BO then Nemesis.

Re: Cho Fortunate To Land Sulu Role

See what?
Plenty of movies have made less then the $43 million Nemesis at the Box office.
