    the buzz coming out of the film was something I hadn't felt in a long time, it just needs to come back a bit now to what ST is about.
    Yes this exactly! I don't mind what they did to the reboot. It needed to be done but the fact that it looks like they've done the same thing again this time round is what I have a problem with.

    They need to start to bring it back towards what Star Trek is now or risk losing the old fans and eventually the mainstream will get bored of it and we'll be back to square 1 again.

    What is Star Trek?

    It's a peace keeping force and humanitarian fleet obviously. :p

    A reflection of modern life and an optimistic view of how we can fix our problems in the future.

    It's because FF is just a decent action film with lot's of action. No need to think.
    I thought the FF was meant to be decent action but I thought it was just dire. I didn't find the action engaging at all; the mildly diverting part was the main race and only due to the way it was filmed. Perhaps I was expecting too much; for anime fans I was thought there'd be tense races like Initial D.

    Let's just face it. This is just going to be a by the numbers action sequel.

    BIGGER EXPLOSIONS
    BIGGER SHIPS
    BIGGER MILD PERIL
    BIGGER TITS

    It's going to be shit and I don't mean that in an anti-hype kind of way. I mean it's just another watchable action film now. It's probably going to end up like a space version of fast and furious. Which is ok, but it's not the star trek we all loved.

    I hope I'm wrong but the trailers do make it seem like just another action film now.

    Who loved? All the under 12s who thought it was the best film ever? We are no longer the target audience. Yes, there are lots of Trek fans who are adults. They probably took their kids to see it. I make the assumption that the huge amount of money made was because a lot of these adults enjoyed it too.

    Reboots have to be different. Yes, Hollywood is all out of ideas yadda yadda, gimmie the money etc. but for better or worse, most of them have to tell the story in their own way. If it's "flash,bang, whoosh" then so be it.

    Not just flash bang whoosh damn it! It needs to have a proper story!

    Give it a decent story and I will forgive ALL the lens flare they throw at it! :)

    Stop wishing and just move on. "Star Trek" is not Star Trek anymore we were told that by lens flare himself BEFORE the first one shat out. Don't wish for what you have no chance of getting watch it for the dumb shit it is, we have our Star Trek and we've had all we'll get on the big screen and probably small one to if we ever see a new TV show.

    I don't see why it can't have a good story and effects. Just hire better writers instead of proven hacks.
    Why should hire new people? The last one did well and it seems people are up for more. It's like Transformers films, they are fucking terrible but rake in a fortune so why change it?

    A good review in that it almost wilfully spoils the identity of John Harrisson.

    Old trek was never smart, it was the same as the new trek only much slower and more dull politics.

    Which it will never do unless idiots like you get over yourselves and watch the movie.

    If you want a show, the films need to be a success.

    You think being stubborn about the new films is going to get you a new tv series?

    Its too expensive to do full 20+ episode series. I reckon a mini series every year would fly, though.

    That'd make a fuck ton and finance a proper series!

    @GiarcYekrub

    1) it will only do so if the films are a success
    2) it would be set in the same universe as the new films to capitalise on point 1

    So either way you'd still be fucking moaning.

    You could still do a Prime Universe TV show, but given the events of the last film still lead to massive changes there as well, there'd still be moaning. For what it's worth, I love where STO went with that story. A lot of the stuff in STO could make for great TV if they expanded it.

    Lets have a debate about the prime directive. Make it so number one.

    Zzzzz.

    There's a reason TV doesn't give a shit anymore.

    I would, alot of people would, just because alot of people watch something doesn't mean its good, look at the endless stream of reality shows that get stupid ratings. A good solid Star Trek show would I think work well on a service like Netflix. TV gives Star Trek the space to explore issues in more depth than a 2 hour film can.
