Re: Kevin Smith Hints that Trek-XI is "Phenomenal"

I get the impression he was talking about Pine there. Quinto is already relatively well known whereas Pine is not, and Smith is a fan of Heroes I believe, so I doubt he would need convincing about Quinto's abilities.

Re: Kevin Smith Hints that Trek-XI is "Phenomenal"

I figured he meant Pine. The host seems to think the same thing as the next question out of his mouth is (to paraphrase) "How does one out-Shatner Shatner ?". I interpreted Kevin's "I don't know what you're talking about" as mere faux-confusion in an attempt to dance around the subject rather than an indication that Kirk was not the focus of the initial comment.

I agree with your interpretation.

Re: Kevin Smith Hints that Trek-XI is "Phenomenal"

Kevin Smith is the worst kind of fanboy: the kind with exposure. Plus, he's not going to come out and say anything bad. It's just not cool to bad mouth a movie made by your peers. Isn't this the guy that praised the Daredevil movie in advance?

Re: Kevin Smith Hints that Trek-XI is "Phenomenal"

I trust Kevin Smith, and I can't imagine he's just saying it to drum up publicity regardless of his opinion.

Can you imagine him saying this about Nemesis?

Kevin Smith on Magnolia:

"'They sent me an Academy screener DVD [of ''Magnolia''] this week. I'll never watch it again, but I will keep it. I'll keep it right on my desk, as a constant reminder that a bloated sense of self-importance is the most unattractive quality in a person or their work.''"

He negatively reviews many works of his peers.

Re: Kevin Smith Hints that Trek-XI is "Phenomenal"

Nothing wrong with that. I was just pointing out that he doesn't always give his peers positive reviews for the hell of it. Magnolia just happened to be one of his more memorable negative reviews.

Re: Kevin Smith Hints that Trek-XI is "Phenomenal"

Did he get his Academy screener before or after it had already come out and gotten whatever reputation it was going to get as a film? My guess would be after because I would think the screeners are given out after the films are nominated which doesn't happen until the new year...just something to factor in.

Though I think this is still good news. The only caveat I have for myself is that he's definitely more of a Warsie, so as negative as I can be is that it skews in that direction too much for my taste. But that may or may not be a bad thing, and it's not as if we didn't already know it was going in that direction anyway since Abrams himself calls him self more a Wars fan than a Trek fan, but a big fan of both.

Wow. Seems like everyone is relying on Kevin Smith these days. First for the upcoming Man of Steel film, and now Star Trek.

Re: Kevin Smith Hints that Trek-XI is "Phenomenal"

I have to agree that KS wouldn't say anything negative in this case. If Abrams lets him attend a very advance screening of STXI (the movie is supposedly still missing most of VFX shots), then they must be good friends and it's unlikely that Smith would bad mouth the movie.

But on the other hand he didn't have to say anything. And if he didn't like it I think he would have kept quiet, especially since the movie is still incomplete. And he certainly wouldn't use words like "awesome", "phenomenal" and "fantastic" for a movie he didn't even like (he actually used all 3 of those words).

And his "Anybody who was worried doesn’t need to be worried about this film" comment was directed at us Trekkies.

No, Kevin Smith is the best kind of fanboy: the kind who grew up, took his enthusiasm and did things with it. He's made films, made a career, has a life.

Some people don't think his films are good. Those are just opinions, and properly the concern of those expressing them rather than Smith's concern. After all, he could have wasted his life hanging out on the Internet and trashing filmmakers in the Talkbacks over at AICN. That's "the worst kind of fanboy."
