Blimey, I sure hope it's better the 'The Dark Shite'.

Well there's no way Star Trek could be as good as The Dark Knight because Heath Ledger is dead.

Duh.
You look nervous. It's the scars, isn't it? Wanna know how I got 'em?? I had a wife, beautiful...like you. Who tells me I worry too much. Who says I need to smile more. Who gambles...and gets in deep with the sharks. One day, they carve her face and we've got no money for surguries. She can't take it. I just want to see her smile again. I just want her to know I don't care about the scars. So I put a razor in my mouth and do this to myself...and you know what? She can't stand the sight of me! She leaves! See, now I see the funny side. Now I'm always smiling!

Re: Now Kevin Smith says Star Trek almost as good as Dark Knight

Kevin Smith has been guilty of so little FAIL in his filmmaking career that I'll take his opinion before I will most other directors' and producers'. This is very encouraging. Only Spielberg and a couple of others have more stroke and pull in my eyes.

Re: Now Kevin Smith says Star Trek almost as good as Dark Knight

I'm still kicking myself for watching Batman Begins all the way through, waiting for something good. Instead, what I perceived was one insult to the audience after another right to the end.

If someone who has seen J.J.'s Trek likens it to The Dark Knight, which I have no intention of seeing, to me that's a bad sign, save for the idea that the movie, whether I like it or not, may pave the way for another Trek series. Even then, I would want a new series to be set in the 24th or 25th century.

For me, Smith's career has been nothing but FAIL, though Chasing Amy had its moments. But That does not invalidate his views as a critic and a fanboy.

Re: Now Kevin Smith says Star Trek almost as good as Dark Knight

The Dark Knight was AWESOME!!!

It was the most intense movie I'd ever seen! Great story, great dialogue, great performences by all!

Heath Ledger as The Joker was SUPERB!

"AAAAAHHHHHHHH, HA-HA-HA-HA-HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Ha, he, ha-ha, ah-ha... hoy, he, ha, HOO, haaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
And I thought my jokes were bad...."

"How 'bout a magic trick? Okay, see--I'm gonna make this pencil...disapear. Okay, uh--TA-DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

It'ssssssssssssssssssss...now it's gone!"

And of course, who could forget:

"Ya wanna know how I got these scars, hmm? See, my father was...a drinker... and a fiend. And one night, he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy get the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn't like that.

Not...one...bit.

So... with me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it.

He turns to me... and he says,

'Why...so...serious?'

He comes at me with the knife.

'Why...so...SERIOUS!?'

He sticks the blade in my mouth.

'LET'S PUT A SMILE ON THAT FACE!!!'

And............................................

Why so serious?"

Re: Now Kevin Smith says Star Trek almost as good as Dark Knight

Well, I know there are those that disagree, and that's fine. I thought the TDK was not only the best comic book movie I've seen, It was the best movie I've seen in two years. I hope ST is in that league from a story and acting standpoint.

I'm hopeful, but I want May to be here NOW.

Pfft, it's as good as Dark Knight, big deal.

Is it as good as Nemesis?

It may have been based on a comic book hero but the Batman version in TDK was nothing like the Batman in the comics.
First and foremost the suit for Batman in TDK is totally armor and Batman in the comics never had armor, he used stealth, surprise and fear.

So what is so interesting about this is that fans and movie goers allowed that to not be a big deal and made TDK the movie this years block buster. I hope the new Trek movie is good enough that fans and movie goers will do the same for it as well.

What would really be disappointing is if Joel Schumacher saw Star Trek and said it was almost as good as Batman and Robin.

Yeah. Right. If he ever DID say that he was doing it tongue-in-cheek and just stroking his friend George Lucas' ego. That, or he meant best CGI visual effects he'd ever seen in a movie.
