    Just for fun, I took the footage from Into Darkness when Scotty calls up to Spock, "You better get down here, better hurry," and put it to the music from the same moment in The Wrath of Khan to see if they'd fit together.

    I was a little surprised that they did!

    Gotta love Simon Pegg: Simon Pegg: 'F--- You' if You Think 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Sucks

    Funny, considering George Lucas could have said the same to Pegg regarding his hatred of The Phantom Menace. The shoe is on the other foot now.

    I just downloaded the itunes version and watched it again. God what a great fucking movie. And go Simon Pegg, the hardcore fanbase that hate this movie would have hated it no matter what. They shouldn't be pandered to, or listened to.

    The difference is, unlike the prequels, these flms have been pretty universally praised by the film review community. Heck looking at the the audience approval ratings on various sites, they're all sitting at a very high level as well. The criticism comes from a very loud select section of the fanbase who thinks that their view of what Star Trek should be is the reality of what it is, and anything that doesn't meet their narrowly defined view is crap. Pegg is absolutely right. If someone doesn't like the film because they didn't enjoy it, then they have their right to. It's the people who claim, "Well its just a summer blockbuster, it's not Star Trek", while having no actual authority over what is and isn't, that he is talking to I figure.

    That's true...and that makes Pegg seem like even more of a baby because of it. A hundred people voted it worst, boo-friggin'-hoo. A lot of people loved it and it made a butt-load of money, so who cares?

    Simon Pegg has also called Babylon 5 shit.

    Total hypocrisy.

    That better defines criticism of STXI. STID, aka "we gotta do Khan because we're out of ideas and people just want to see their childhoods raped again" is a different animal.

    Did you actually think before you posted that? Do you have any idea how childish that sounds? It's a movie. Some find it entertaining, others don't. Nothing more, nothing less. :rolleyes:

    Tell that to Simon Pegg, who feels it is acceptable to hurl abuse at people for merely ranking STID as their least favourite Star Trek film in a poll.

    Maybe Simon Pegg is just annoyed that these people will never shut up about how much they hate the movie not matter how much time passes, as well as the fact that they will just randomly bring said hatred up in conversations that have nothing to do with said movie.

    Because I know I am.

    I mean don't these people have lives or something.

    Well, I suppose it comes down to which you think is more morally acceptable out of not liking a movie, or yelling abuse at people for not liking a movie.

    I don't even rate STID as the worst Trek film, I think it's a largely passable, mindless runaround that I'd certainly rather watch again than Generations. Doesn't stop people having the right to claim Generations as the best and STID as the worst without being shouted down though.

    You'd think they did, but apparently not.

    And there in lies the problem, ascribing a moral imperative to your OPINION.

    Heres the thing I don't care if someone likes the movie or not I just don't want to hear about how much they hate it non stop for another 4 f@#king years just because they think their the second coming of Roger Ebert or something (which they aren't).

    Look no one is going to be converted to the haters side, they are just being annoying.

    Ah, that makes it perfectly acceptable then.

    Must be horrible for you having to hear about people liking different things :(. For four years, no less.

    Except for the fact general audiences and critics (which was NOT the case for STID) ALSO panned The Phantom Menace.

    Yes it is acceptable. Just cause he's an a public figure doesn't mean he has any requirement to express his opinion in a sugar coated way.
