Topic: Star Trek (2009) predictions
I'll admit it, I'm a trekker. That's right, not a trekkie to you non-trek fans, a trekker. Proud to say it to. I adore all the films and the majority of episodes from all the series. So with that being said, I thought I'd start a thread about what I think this "new" trek is all about.
I could go on to bash it before I see it, but that would probably be a mistake. Based off what I've seen in the trailer there's already a few things I don't like but I'll leave an open mind. Hell, I've already bought tickets online to see it right after work on friday.
I predict a very fast paced action movie. This will appeal to a wide audience as a flashy and explosive film that anyone and everyone could enjoy.
I predict that the focus on characters will be more on Kirk and Spock and the rest will seem to dissolve in the background. The rest will exist more or less to appeal to fans or to move the plot along.
I predict to be blown away the first time I watch it but grow to hate it more and more after I own it on dvd.
I predict that no care will be taken into consideration in accordance with true trek timeline. It may be nice as a "what if" but I'm sure I'll spot the inconsistencies all over the place.
I predict that it will do better opening weekend than wolverine did. The trailer has enough power to draw in the average movie goer and the name has enough power to bring in the die hard fans.
Lastly, I predict to be let down. After its all over I'm sure I'll be bitching about it for awhile. I have no high hopes for it but I do know that I will at the least be entertained for 2 hours. Just from what I've seen I can just feel it that it won't meet any expectations that I could give it.
That being said...we all know there's only one Captain James T. Kirk.
