Oh no no no. That was the beauty of it, you see. Because Nero came back in time and killed Kirk's dad and then destroyed Vulcan, it created an alternative reality. This means that it gives them a complete clean slate to write WHATEVER THEY WANT from here on out and not EVER have to worry about continuity. They alluded to it occasionally with parts like where Kirk was talking to Spock Prime and he asked if he ever knew his father in Spock's world, and he said yes, that his father was the one that influenced him to join Starfleet.

I was VERY confused as I had seen a recent blurb of an ep from the original series, and Spock, Bones, and Kirk were hanging out with both of Spock's parents, so she simply couldn't be dead!

They's smart, they is.

Just got back myself... I'M CONFLICTED!

I really liked it. But... but... they totally killed the canon. And I'm glad they at least did it in a way that makes the old canon and the new canon both count.

A plot problem:

WHY DID SPOCK STAY IN A CAVE ON THAT ICY PLANET WHEN HE COULD HAVE WALKED TO THE STARFLEET OUTPOST FOR HELP JEEBUS CHRIMMAS YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE SMART, SPOCKY!!


Also, I am SQUEEEEING over the Spock romance. Don't wanna say who in case anybody reading comments hasn't seen it yet. BUT SQUEEEEE.

Meh, anyone clicking on the comments should automatically know that there be spoilers under thar!!! I'll put in a disclaimer, just in case.

I thought it was hilarious, with the whole "I have no comment" sort of statement he said to Kirk after the kiss.

It made me want to find me a young hottie :x

My favorite was when the nerds were watching the credits and were like "Wynnona Ryder was in it. Where?" and I'm like duuuuuuuuuuuuuuh Spock's MOM!

I think the beginning was done really well, but for whatever reason it annoyed me that Cameron from House was Kirk's mom. Maybe because I can ONLY see her as Cameron.

Did you think it had a touch of the WB or CW type show to it? I thought it kind of did.

And omg I totally thought Ahura was Jada Pinket Smith or whatever, but it wasnnnnn't. At least that explains why my brain kept going "she looks really good. wow she looks young!" because it wasn't herrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

And we thought that the Romulen ship looked a lot like a ship from another sci-fi series, but we couldn't place it. ideas?

And yes I probably spelled a ton of names wrong, but I'm not a true Trekky so I can get away with it.

I kept thinking "wow, Spock's mom looks like Wynona Rider" and then when I saw the credits I couldn't believe it was really her! It makes me feel old to see her playing somebody's MOM.

Thank you for providing me with a safe haven in which to talk about the movie. I find that, thanks to TiVo, I can't even talk to people about TV shows anymore because they're like "I love Battlestar Galactica" and I'm like "Hey, how come in the season finale" and they're like "HEY NO SPOILERS I've only seen the first season and haven't actually watched it in a year." God dammit. I ought to spoil it for them; they deserve it.

As I said, I walked away from it wishing it were on TV every week again, because it had everything that was awesome about Trek and none of the stuff that made my brother make fun of it and was kinda right about.

But, you know, even with that mission going the way he did, you don't go straight from cadet to captain. That's too big a thing for me to just let go. His only command experience was that one mission, and cheating on Kobayashi-Maru.

Also, Chekov = Wesley but nobody hates him.

May. 9th, 2009 11:55 pm (UTC)
HA HA, I loved Wesley.

I thought about the truthfulness about the first statement about spoilers - so many shows that I want to watch more of and LOVE, I haven't seen past the first season and haven't watched in forever: Lost, Heroes, BSG, etc.

But Pike had faaaaaaith in him! Or something.

I liked the casting a lot. I like that Uhura was pretty rocking and brilliant and ksdhg dating Spock WHAT nice. There was some nice action. The plot was pretty solid. How badass was Sulu? I NEVER KNEW PEOPLE WHO COULD MOVE LIKE THAT WHILE FENCING. It was funny! Overall, a great action movie.

I really had a problem with the lack of women. Once. Again. Trek had always been "progressive" for its time, but it had lol flaws, so I was hoping to see them made up for in the revamp. True Uhura got to be brilliant, but she was still wearing the goddamn miniskirt. And of course, Spock's mom went into the fridge with many other ladies of sci-fi. It could've used some more dynamic portrayals of women outside of A) lover or B) mom.
aubkabob
May. 9th, 2009 11:57 pm (UTC)
I knew the romance between Uhura and Spock was going to happen, as I had seen her talk about it in an interview, about how it all seems so LOGICAL, as they're a lot alike, or something. LOVED it. Answered my question as to what a Vulcan in love is like ;)

OMG, NEED MORE SULU. He came in waving swords and kicking ass... then took a backseat the remainder of the movie.

I was thinking about the whole women thing, too, but the movie was very good at distracting me from thinking TOO much about it with all its shiny and flashing lights.

It was pretty damn good.
Urban was channeling McCoy's ghost, he was so good. Scotty needs to have a drink and stop trying so hard.

Even with that said, I wish that there had been more Sulu and Scotty! I hadn't expected Bones to be in it so much, but was pleased.

Mmm, drink.

I thought it was really nice how all the crewmembers sort of got picked up along the way, instead of just having them all happen to be assigned to the same boat; getting a chance to watch how they all bond with Kirk and each other.

one more time: SULU!!! I hope this means he'll get to be a member of more away teams now that he's officially a badass.

alright.

And I actually thought Scotty was done very well.

I understand the need for the reboot / alternate reality, but someday can we PLEASE have a star trek flick that isn't about time travel? kthx.

And the bit with Chekov and the v / w sounds? priceless.

attaining has a good point; if you're gonna reboot, give us a new female character.

Fun, but fluffy -- I would like more sci fi, frankly. Looking forward to what they do with it next, though.

I love that they took out Vulcan; that will change the trek world in all sorts of big fun ways, I bet.

May. 10th, 2009 12:01 am (UTC)
I WANT MORE SULU! I was sad that he came in kicking SO MUCH ASS and then was meek and quiet for the remainder of the movie. I love Simon Pegg, too.

Does the fact that I have been slowly watching eps in a timeline starting with Enterprise count as being a sort of a Trek fan BEFORE the movie release? ;)

I kept waiting for the movie to right itself and it took a bit for it to click as to WHAT they were doing. When it did, IT WAS BRILLIANT.

Talking about this MOVIE makes me use CAPSLOCK SO MUCH MORE than what is socially appropriate.
