Re: New ST:XI trailer

Just watched it. Totally pedestrian trailer. A bit cheesy at the beginning followed by loads of splosions and the obligatory sex scene. Doesn’t really tell you much about the movie apart from it being an origin story of some kind.

In fact, I don’t really see how this trailer told us anything new at all. We learn that Spock was a cute kid, the Enterprise interiors are blindingly white and Scotty is an embarrassment. Oh yeah and apparently policemen in the future look really creepy wearing weird insectoid headgear.

Insert generic but passionate defense of Simon Pegg-as-Scotty here.

I thought it was good.

Although Karl Urban sounded like he was still playing Eomer rather than Leonard McCoy.

Re: New ST:XI trailer

They've got part of the trailer (most of it I guess) in not-so-good quality over at [link removed]

I'm not really sure about this, to be honest. I don't like the stuff with car all that much. Some of the design looks nice. Well, I'll just have to wait and see .

Good. I hate trailers that give away each and every bit of the story (like most of the Trek-trailers so far have done).

The trailer is great.
It shows us who's in the film, that it is about Star Trek, and showcases some VFX-shots (a lot of them feature the Kelvin). It's fast-paced, energetic and exiting. Perfectly designed to draw lots and lots of people to this film.

I just watched the shitty YouTube version. I'm going with "Meh." I admit, it does have some cool looking action sequences, but so did Enterprise. Doesn't mean that was good Trek.

First impression...

This teaser trailer is kinda cheesy.

But it just may be the right kind of cheesy.

The opening shots of the speeding car on an Iowa dirt road were fine, sparked curiosity, nice action bit when it goes over the cliff. Nice reveal on the future cop - and I myself laughed out loud when the kid stands up and announces "My name is James Tiberius Kirk!"

(I don't think most of the people in the audience with me had any idea that the name meant anything.)

There was a whole lot more Spock in the trailer than Kirk - meaning all it showed was a fairly generic "young rebellious guy searching for himself", whereas the stuff on Spock gets into his dual nature a bit. Got much more of a genuine Spock vibe off of Quinto than a Kirk vibe off of Pine, but, again, all his stuff was very generic.

From that point on it was simply "hey, this is big! It has 'splosions! Here's a gratuitious bra! Here's a shadowy sex scene! Here's more 'splosions!"

I did like Kirk's "Buckle up." I thought Scotty's "I like this ship, it's exciting!" was cheesy (but then most of Scotty's lines have always been cheesy, so that was actually authentic).

And I must admit to giggling giddily at Nero's "The wait is over." and the title card.

*shrug* It might be fun. I will have to continue to reserve judgment until more material gives a deeper indication of story and character.

PS - Quantum of Solace was a giant snore. Guess I'll have to stick to my belief that the only good Bond film ever made is Casino Royale.
Sadly, it was not shown prior to Quantum of Solace where I was last night (not that I went just for the trailer--a good buddy of mine and I have a standing tradition of seeing Bond movies on opening night). I guess I'll have to wait until it hits the net (unless it shows before something else around here).

I'm going to have to disagree with Casino Royale being the "only good Bond film ever made". Of course, one probably needs to be a "fan" to appreciate the ensemble of Bond films, and, certainly, they are not all of equal quality. But (and I'm willing to concede it's likely a "guy thing") there have been some Bond films worthy of the label "good film" (not just "good Bond film"). I would include From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, On Her Majesty's Secret Service (my favourite Bond film, if not my favourite Bond actor--though it probably would not have been as good with Connery as Bond, as heretical as that may seem to Bond fans, for reasons that are best discussed in another thread) and Casino Royale (2006). As for "good Bond films" (even if they don't rise to the level of "good films in general") I would add The Living Daylights, Goldeneye, For Your Eyes Only, The Spy Who Loved Me and Thunderball. Of course, the point of Bond films has never been being "good films" in the sense of the best of Hitchcock or Spielberg (let alone "serious" films in the Bergman or Kirosawa vein). Certainly, for those who are not "Bond fans", I can see why Casino Royale would be considered "the best".

In any event, to end my long digression into the world of Bond and return to the upcoming Trek movie, I would say it is quite possible this new film (to the consternation of many fans--even beyond the "pur et dur") will be seen by non-Trek "fans" as the equivalent of Casino Royale for Bond--the "only good Trek movie" (of course, to declare Casino Royale the "only good Bond movie" to Bond fans can provoke similar protests in kind, if not degree, as such a suggestion about Abrams' film would provoke should it be judged as such by "the mainstream").

I, of course, as a fan of each "franchise", and recognizing the inherent limitations of each, appreciate more than just "the best" (though I'm not entirely uncritical--Moonraker is a bad Bond movie and I will not watch The Lights of Zetar (worse in my eyes than even And The Children Shall Lead or Spock's Brain) anymore). Beyond that, as has been confirmed by my spending the past few days hanging around in this particular forum, I'm far more "forgiving" of each as well (meaning I find enjoyment, of varying degrees of intensity, from each iteration of both franchises). I simply don't treat either one as "important, serious art" but as fun, escapist entertainment from which I demand little. I have enough serious demands on my intellect with my work to constantly seek similar challenges in my entertainment.

So, in that spirit, I look forward to the new Trek film (as well as the next Bond film).

As for the trailer, anyone know if it will be "attached" to other films anytime soon?

Kid Kirk's annoying but I guess he won't be in it long. Looks fantastic, though I'm not mad on the new transporter effect (if that's what that is when Quinto appears - I suppose it might be Nero's transporter or something). The quick glimpses of the Enterprise look a lot better than the still photo suggests, and, as a Scot, it's nice to hear a Scotty accent a little closer to resembling a Scottish one!
