Nerd rage....

Ever experience nerd rage?

It can take the form of anything from deep yet unspoken disappointment to seething rage expressed aloud. I admit to experiencing various forms of it over the years, and not just with Trek.

I hated the Pierce Brosnan Bond films. I shook my head in disgust over Superman Returns and the wreck that was Starship Troopers. The remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still left me disgusted.

In Trek the sight of the new uniforms in TWoK pissed me off. The death of Spock and the destruction of the Enterprise, and the death of Kirk left me sad (okay, that's not really rage I suppose). The buffoonery of TVH pissed me off.

The early episodes of TNG had me exclaiming aloud

Of course my intense dislike of VOY and disapproval of ENT are well known around here.

Anyone else ever experience a form of nerd rage?

God, you reminded me of my ultimate expression of nerd rage!

Goldeneye, opening week. I went with my friend to see this in a packed cinema, and I admit that the chav spawn in the seats behind had already put me in a bad mood with their kick the seat routine.

I'm someone who fell in love with the Dalton movies, and I was hoping for good stuff. Then the opening sequence of Goldeneye... Bungee to the dam, infiltrate the Russian base, double cross, escape. All exciting Bondery. Then the plane sequence...

Plane drops over the cliff...

Bond follows over on his motorbike.

Plane falls, Bond falls. Bond catches up to the falling plane. Bond climbs in plane, flies away. Cue theme...

A physics course fresh in my head just turned me off the whole movie right then. Object B dropped after object A cannot catch up to object A, unless wind resistance is markedly different. That would have to be the tallest cliff in the solar system, that would have to be Olympus Mons for that to work out. That was my Nerd Rage moment, and ensured I never bought a Brosnan Bond on DVD.

I had reaver-class nerd rage. What a lousy movie.

Not nerd rage but nerd disgust--even tripping balls on LSD, I could see what an obscenely stupid piece of shit The Fifth Element was.

Re: Nerd rage....

I was watching an Enterprise ep yesterday for the first time since its original run and shook my head in anger at the fact that all the computer sounds were near-identical to TNG. There were many things that could have been done to make that show actually feel like a prequel. Projectile weapons for one...

Nerd Rage...

Battlefield Earth...

I truly wanted to find the Director (Roger Christian) and hit him with a baseball bat with nails in the end...good splatter pattern..up close and personal..maybe brush a bit of brain matter from my shirt as I was arrested screaming.."IT WAS WORTH IT,DAMNIT!!!"... And 20 years in a rubber room with a purple crayon for company...
It would have been worth it...

I haven't seen the J.J. movie, but the red linoleum floor of the so-called Enterprise bridge really rubs me the wrong way.
