Positive review from MSNBC

Talks a bit about Wolverine, rising popularity of prequels in Hollywood, and discussion about Star Trek.
Enjoy!

Not a lot of credibility here-even though he likes Trek, he doesn't really know the storyline of Terminator (Christian Bale isn't REALLY taking the Schwartzenegger role is he?) and he thinks that all movies are now franchises. If you scan trailers for upcoming movies there are plenty which AREN'T franchises, just a few that are. It's still not the norm. Most films are still stand alone stories.

My 2 cents anyway.

^ Still, we are talking about MSNBC here. Most of whom's viewers are hardly scifi aficionados.

My feeling? All good reviews are a plus. Even if its a review done by one of the uneducated masses.

No, no he is not, he's playing John Conner.

All movies are franchises? So Valkyrie 2, Knowing 2 and Apollo 13 II are a go?

Wow, is this the pedantry in overdrive thread?

Yeah, he's taking over Arnie's role as the star of the Terminator franchise.

Were those the best examples you could come up with?

They were obviously referring to this summer movie season as an indicator of the trend.

Re: Positive review from MSNBC

O'Neill (who, in fairness, often talks out of his ass) did say Bale takes over FOR Schwarzenegger, not that he's taking his role. Besides, what matters more is that of all the films they talk about in this interview, Star Trek comes off the best. O'Neill calls it "superb", while Wolverine is merely "good" and Terminator "should've been left alone." Now if you were an average moviegoer, which of these films just got the biggest buzz boost for you?

MSNBC review (spoilers) - text [no video]

“Star Trek” is easily the summer tentpole movie by which all of 2009’s summer tentpole movies will be measured.
[Spoiler Alert]
‘Star Trek’ is popcorn perfection

Exactly. Up until now, Schwarzenegger has been the star power who opens the Terminator movies, now - thanks to Batman - it's Bale.

When Pike goads Kirk with the line, “Your father was captain of a starship for 12 minutes. He saved 800 lives, including yours. I dare you to do better,” I could feel the hairs on my neck standing up in a way usually reserved for well-written, powerful dramas and not mass-market genre movies.
I like this review. It's exciting!
