Young Kirk n Spock + Lost = new Star Trek movie

what I've seen of Lost was okay, but really is there any reason (beyond pointless moneygrubbing) to keep the franchise alive at this point...? Especially when it involves just rehashing old ideas/characters...?

Are you talking about the Lost that's like not even through its second season?

nabisco - the writers/director/producers of Lost have been contracted by Paramount to make this movie

yeah. J.J. Abrams creator of Lost & Alias (and director of MI-I-I-I) is doing a Prequel Strek movie.

on the other, COME ON.

Huk-L (Huk-L), Monday, 24 April 2006 18:58 (fourteen years ago) link

pros: Rick Berman is not involved
cons: DeForest Kelley not available for flashbacks

i was confused for a second thinking Strek meant Shrek.

Ha, sorry, I thought you were comparing Lost to the pointless straggling-on of the Star Trek movies!

nabisco (nabisco), Monday, 24 April 2006 19:22 (fourteen years ago) link

I had the same "huh?" reaction that you did, then this little wave of anxiety that ABC would cancel Lost because somebody on ILX didn't like it.

Beth Parker (Beth Parker), Monday, 24 April 2006 19:28 (fourteen years ago) link

Is According To Jim still on because somebody on ILX DOES like it?

Huk-L (Huk-L), Monday, 24 April 2006 19:30 (fourteen years ago) link

I'd like to see outtakes for the casting call auditions for Mr. Spock and Captain Kirk, as there would have to be some that will be down right hilarious.

Spock will find out his mother was really a Klingon, and Captain Kirk will disappear halfway through the movie to go find his kidnapped son. After losing & regaining the use of his legs.

VegemiteGrrl (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 25 April 2006 02:09 (fourteen years ago) link

Well, if they've got Terry O'Quinn playing a Klingon, I'm there.

Sparkle Motion's Rising Force, Tuesday, 25 April 2006 02:43 (fourteen years ago) link

this could be good. I miss good star trek (by which I mean, the original series, most of the original cast movies, and most of TNG). I hope they keep the sexing it up to a minimum and get back to the pulpy. Enterprise was a horrible wasted opportunity. I don't envy, though, anyone trying to play a young Shatner or Nimoy; those guys are still like the most charismatic actors around.

kyle (akmonday), Tuesday, 25 April 2006 06:13 (fourteen years ago) link

Agreed, but how much fun would it be to have William Shatner come down and coach you on set? Lots of fun, you have to think.

The problems I foresee:
TV people can't always transfer to films
It could turn into hilarious cameo-athon
It could just, you know, be shite

However, I'll be going to see it.

accentmonkey (accentmonkey), Tuesday, 25 April 2006 10:28 (fourteen years ago) link

they should get that kid from Freaks & Geeks to play Shatner.

this should be cool, it's nice to see them send nimoy off into retirement. i'd be surprised if they fuck this film up, since star trek's cultural capital is about as low as it can be right now.

SPOCK'S BRAIN: THE MOTION PICTURE

ghost rider, Friday, 27 July 2007 14:24 (thirteen years ago) link

yeah Spock in the movie was too bitchy, I know it was young Spock reconciling his human and vulcan sides, learning to keep emotions in check, but it was still weird.

musically, Saturday, 23 January 2010 00:43 (ten years ago) link

the Delta Vega thing seemed like a huge plot hole to me: Nero & co leave Spock on the planet and tell him they're going to destroy Vulcan, so why does Spock just hang around in the cave when he knows exactly where the outpost is and how to get off the planet? Wouldn't his first instinct to be to get to the outpost and warn the people of Vulcan? I have yet to hear an explanation that completely explains what was going on there.

did they actually tell him they were going to destroy vulcan? i don't remember that. also, maybe he was just staying out of the way as to not influence the past?

I'm FINNISH!!!! (s1ocki), Saturday, 23 January 2010 00:57 (ten years ago) link

I'm pretty sure that's exactly why they put him there and they told him he would have to watch his planet suffer. And it seems inconsistent that he's watch his home planet implode while he helps Kirk and Scotty get back on the Enterprise, since Vulcan was always around in the first "reality".

i'm sure that's WHY they put him there, i'm just not sure they told him that. maybe once he sees something irrevocably different has happened, he's like fuck it?

I'm FINNISH!!!! (s1ocki), Saturday, 23 January 2010 01:03 (ten years ago) link

but it was a decent movie. wouldn't buy it, though.

I would recommend the blu-ray for anyone who has the setup and likes the movie...It looks incredible and has tons of features. There's a little doc on Nimoy playing Spock for presumably the last time that turns out to be fairly moving. The man himself is in tears as he completes his final scene.

i was confused that they had him watching his mother die when in the earlier movies she is there after he is brought back to life on genesis, etc.

not a star trek dude really, but finally saw this and it was AWESOME.

Totally with this. It's not really a proper Star Trek movie even, it just riffs on the mythology. But's it's my favourite of the lot.

bc srsly i got misty at the end of wrath of khan and st iv and v are almost like awesome buddy movies. way more enjoyable imo.

No, just because you don't have to have anything but the most fleeting knowledge of its parent shows and movies to fully enjoy it.

it's because the whole movie is set in an alternate timeline!

manichean ramen (latebloomer), Saturday, 23 January 2010 03:57 (ten years ago) link

here's the quote from Spock in the film:

"Nero spared my life for one reason: so that i would know his pain. he beamed me here so i could observe his vengeance."

I figure that means that Nero told him, but let's say he didn't; that still doesn't explain why Spock would stay on the planet when he knows where the outpost is.

Basically the Romulans changed everything by going through the black hole and killing off Kirk's dad, so now everything is slightly different.

this is otm, even if my opinion is completely different. reboots like this are basically just really expensive fan fiction.

that's kinda my point....it's not of a piece with the rest of the series, it's just another 'pretty people in peril' JJ Abrams sci-fi soap opera with ST characters and a bunch of fan service references plugged in.

"No, just because you don't have to have anything but the most fleeting knowledge of its parent shows and movies to fully enjoy it."

Cranking Beastie Boys in the kid kirk sequence wasn't enjoyable until I found out upthread that it might be a reference to an obscure tape of Shatner throwing a hissy fit over pronouncing "sabotage" for the animated series.
