Re: Trailer: Star Trek Beyond

I've never said this about a Trek film before, but I hope this flick flops. And I mean badly. Insurrection badly. End of film franchise badly. Make them go back to the drawing board about whatever they're planning for the new series badly.

Badly enough that they just scrap the vision of Trek they've been running with. Badly enough that they finally realise that Star Trek, even at its best, has never really worked as cinema. There are simply too many concessions you have to make in storytelling. It belongs on TV. The alternate timeline origins of the Abramsverse gave them an easy way to reset and make things right. Have Kirk & Co. sacrifice themselves, the Universe and their timeline for the greater good.

Yes, I hope this film fails badly. Just not badly enough that it kills Trek altogether. ;)

Re: Trailer: Star Trek Beyond

Awful. Just awful. Shatner can rest easy now. Final Frontier will soon no longer be the most hated Trek flick (though Into Darkness may have already taken that honour).

The last line of this trailer pretty much sums up how I feel about the Abramsverse.
