Movies in General

Anyone seen the latest Star Trek Film.
Having been a Trekky fan from the Television series I found it rather difficult looking at a different bunch of actors playing the role of the original characters.

I saw it, it was rather good, though it was primarily action/comedy that did pay tribute to the original series but really didn't feature any of the political or moral themes of the various series.

Here's a much more comprehensive review from a more hardcore fan if you're interested.

I found it entertaining and the new cast did a good job but they overhyped the movie. Even though Nero's ship was from the future and more advanced than anything else, I expected a new Romulan Warbird and cloaking and some badass battles. Wrath of Khan is still a superior movie. Wait and see the new TV series reboot coming soon.


On another note... Guess who the invading country is in the new Red Dawn reboot? If you're Chinese and live in the US... buy your guns and lock and load. You're gonna be visited by some dumbass racists when this movie opens.

Thanks for the link.
I think this is one remake the world really could live with out.
It is going to be a terrible exploitation film.
I did like the original film, and I am a major China gov critic, but I will not see this film.

I suppose one could take it as a compliment to be portrayed as the antagonists , like the Russians were, but I cant say whether the movie appeals at this stage. Anything gotta be better than the Charlie Chan and Fu Man Chu of yesteryear.
At this stage I think the Russians/ Eastern Europe come across as better Movieworld antagonists must because of the Russian accent and all the James Bond type movies.

Anyway Im a sucker for those religious suspense films so I'll suppose Ill go along and see 'Angels and Demons' though Im getting a bit tired of Tom Hanks

At least in Angels and Demons they have a fictional enemy (Illuminati) to deal with.

We'll see if the Red Dawn reboot actually sees the light of day. The Hollywood gods are angry with China disobeying the orders of George Clooney, Richard Gere, and Mia Farrow. So China should prepare to wage an all out war against Hollywood. I wonder if their arrogance will see the possible massive billions of dollars of damage China could inflict on their industry.

About the Red Dawn remake...

Anyone expecting the Asian girl to be the primary love interest of the leader, who, obviously, eventually falls for for the leader too? :rofl: .

You guys crack me up.

First off I worked in the motion picture TV biz for a short 16 months as an on set security guard.

The motion picture producers are the people with the real power in Hollywood. they have the money and make all the major decisions. Most producers objective is not political like some believe but profit driven..
