Here ya go, folks!
I watched the first few seconds, realized it was someone with too much time on their hands and stopped watching.
To add to their nitpicking, it says "5 minutes or less", but the video time is 5:35. Um, if you're going to be that picky, KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR TIMING!
So does that make it free?
darn, I was hoping it was one of those canon violation videos where they point out all the times the series contradict themselves.
Or you get a free order of cheesy breadsticks!
You mean like mine?
Third and final part coming soon-ish.
Meh. Lots of things I and others have brought up.
Doesn't stop it from being a fun movie.
Haters gonna hate!!!
Some of the nitpicks are BS that every movie falls victim to.
Some of them (nitpicks) are because the movie doesn't explain every little detail. Like, "Why did Spock not go for the Starbase immediately once he was on Delta Vega?" Who knows and who cares...use your damn imagination. Here's an example of using one's imagination, Ah...maybe trying to cross space as fast as he could to contain a supernova; fail in saving a planet but succeed in stopping the supernova, then fall into a black hole, then get captured, and then left behind to watch your world be destroyed all in the span of a day or so. Shit, man needed a breather for a few, so he sat down built a fire and was trying to determine the best route to get there and then boom, Kirk shows up. The whole point is I didn't need the movie to spend an extra 10 minutes explaining this. Ironically it’s actually cool in that I can explain it how I want to, or anybody can explain how they want to.
Bud Light? I sure as hell hope they have this in the future! I live in the land of microbrews and believe me its heaven! But Bud light is always my go too when nothing else is available. It seems that way too for Uhura and gang also in that she orders a whole bunch of stuff, but there are still 3 people who can't decide and get a bud light.
The whole beaming in to the water tube thing was crap too. They beamed from Delta Vega to the Enterprise hoping just to make it there, they were lucky to get there water tube or not even though there was a theory in place. They beamed Spock down outside the Katric Arc because the ground was unstable. Sure you gotta run a bit but it prevents you from dying immediately post beam in.
Sure there are some plot holes, what is Nero doing in the 25 years? Why doesn’t he compute his trajectory and slingshot around the sun immediately and warn Romulace of its impending doom. What regular movie goer is gonna like that? Sure a regular fan might but that’s different. I guess the plot holes weren’t enough for me to complain about and I went into Trek 09 more pissed than most fans and came out really happy. This video could be done with any movie and was created to just further anger those whom are already angered. Rant over…I’m biased though…I still enjoy the Final Frontier.
OP video is full of crap.
Yep, crap video.
I've seen much better nitpicking videos of Star Trek.
A more appropriate title for this one would be Everything Wrong With YouTube & Its Users...
Which is why, when you've seen one of Cinema Sins' "critiques," you've pretty much seen them all: take formula framework; plug in quick snippets from film ______ ; add snark copped from four-year-old YouTube "reviews" by other people. Rhesus monkeys could be trained to do it.
Unsurprisingly it got a considerably lower score than Les Mis.
Swing and a miss.
How does a "visionary science fiction director" rip off Lost, when he's one of the creators of Lost? Shouldn't that be a nitpick, too?
"How It Should Have Ended" fell into the same rut after a while - "uh, they should have all died right about here" became nearly their only punchline.
Actually, there is a good point raised in this. If the Kobayashi Maru is known to be un-winnable, why would any cadet really "face fear"? They're not going to die. Their crew is not going to die. The simulator shown in ST09 didn't even have explosions or incapacitated officers, like that in STII.
I think this is something TNG did much better: the episode with Wesley in SF Academy ("Coming of Age") gave us a much more realistic "facing fear" test.
But anyway, I suppose you must lose yourself in the moment.
Instructors with inflated opinions of themselves can be full of shit. So can cocky students. Oh noes, all our protagonists are multidimensional!
