I still haven't seen The Three Towers or The Search For Spock. Those were episodes 2 & 3 right?

Lens flares! Shaking lenses! Stupid fist fights! People too young to be in the positions of authority they are in. This is what JJA will do to Star Wars.

It's going to look more like Moonraker than Star Wars. I'll pass.

And that's before even seeing a teaser, which would at best still only barely imply what it might be like.

Oh man I see we have ye 'ol Star Trek whiners on these forums too. The Tea Party of nerds.

Reality check grandpas, JJ Abram's Star Trek took a dead franchise (previous 2 films flopped a decade earlier and the last TV series was cancelled after its second season) and transformed it into a critical and commercial blockbuster. Trek '09 is the best reviewed film of the entire movie series (95% on RT) and the most successful up to that point. The sequel, while not as strong but still well regarded (87% RT), made close to half a billion dollars. Get over yourselves, and the irrelevant bubble you live in.

In reality Star Wars 7 has a good shot at greatness. Because Abrams is a great director. But hey, random posters at an internet forum know so much more about good directors than say, Steven Speilberg, who's a fan Abram's work.

This is why I rarely contribute to Internet forums. It's the bottom feeding ghetto of the internet.

Why don't they just release Star Wars on the iTunes store, given its rights now belong to Disney.

ST '09 may be a good movie, but it is not really Star Trek as Roddenberry originally envisioned it. The whole franchise drifted away from his vision as early as the final years of TNG.

Who cares? Everything evolves. Humans evolve. Art evolve. Tastes evolve. Culture evolves.

I just wanted to point out that I seem to remember the majority of the complaints about Abrams' Trek films is that he made them too much like Star Wars and less like what traditional Trek is about. He also admitted that he was more of a Star Wars fanboy growing up... (and of course I cant find where he said this)

I think a Star Wars fanboy making a Star Wars movie will be a very good thing; I can see why a Star Wars fanboy making a Star Trek movie might anger a lot of people.

There's also The Phantom Menace Effect: no matter what the filmmaker does, there is no way the film can live up to expectations. Some people will be angry or unimpressed or disappointed or enraged no matter what...
