    Pffft. I came up with such a criteria while in the bath this morning.

    That is to say, YOUR criteria. Hence, it is subjective

    You don't bring me flowers,
    You don't sing me love songs,
    You don't watch Star Trek with me anymore
    At the end of the day...

    So you're hoping that someone will produce a Star Trek movie that will not make any money.

    I got an A for mine :cool:.

    I really like The Motion Picture and Wrath of Khan, those made a lot of money. First Contact was the last Star Trek movie to be a good film (Though I enjoy Insurrection!) and that was also a financial hit. I also really liked Prometheus last year and that was a blockbuster success. There's still an audience for ideas driven sci-fi it seems, as Looper and Inception also did very well.

    Who gives a shit who's got a whatsitz degree? The convenience stores where I live are staffed by English majors, anthropology students and film school graduates.

    Credentials do not impress. Experience does.

    Man, everyone's real prickly about it. I only mentioned it to counter the idea that disliking ST09 was some kind of 'film school graduate' thing.

    Don't take it personal. You seem not to take this too seriously, which is how it should be. :techman:

    Yeah, I have no idea where that came from.

    Three people have self-identified as film school grads in this forum. Two have been very critical of the film. One has not. That one has fewer posts expressing an opinion on the film. Ergo…

    Oh, absolutely. I mean you've no idea the contempt I would feel for someone who was impressed by the phrase 'film school graduate'. :lol:

    Well I did only get here last month. Give me a few years and I'll be right up there (pro-Abrams, too). ;)

    I like "The Three Stooges". They make me laugh. Yes, I know it's a spamish post, but I just felt it needed to be said in the moment. :)

    My dissertation was on how the Stooges represent the Id, Ego and Super Ego. I got an A. ;)

    Nobody came up with "a criteria", in the bath or anywhere else. You either came up with a criterion, or you came up with several criteria.

    Have you seen a pet ant? I seem to have lost a pet ant around here. Do you know of any pet ants that are in this thread?

    Oh well, it may be in another thread somewhere. I'll keep looking. If you see any pet ants around, just let me know, so I can take them back to their pet ant tree.

    I think we can all agree that a lot of people are a little hostile to ST 09 even Will Shatner and perhaps Levar Burton. They just have a subtle way of saying it.
