The 2009 Reboot Discussion
Morgan confuses Superman with Star Trek
Using Star trek to draw us in by name only
Chekov Love and Hate
Eric Bana screws up the Timeline
The reson we are here: Star Trek Into Darkness
Morgan draws a blank when saying nice things about the Darkness film and resorts to the “pretty clothes” argument.
Costumes at film end was closest to original
I once found inertial dampers superfluous!I am the most Awesome man in the Galaxy!
Simon Pegg fulfills fears and remains a comedic character in EVERY role.
The Triad of information might be a fourpart relationship
Should Scotty be an independent contractor?
It makes Scotty wishy-washy and seem unreliable/untrustworthy
If Scotty is independent, then he is not part of the team
If there is no duty or paycheck, why is Scotty working here?
Nobody walks away from a broken contract with a clean break
Scotty can be Edward Snowden if he is that independent.
Bum torpedoes and Projectile corpses.

Comedian John Cho plays serious well.

Harold & Kumar Films
We dump on Zoe Saldana
If no one complains, then Communications is doing their job well!
Klingons were irrelevant to the script, it could have been Romulans or Borg
If the Klingons are so minimal because of the first film, then Kronos becomes Kazakhstan
John Harrison just stands there and nobody can hit him like a Stormtrooper.
It is not Khan, it is not Khan, It is not Khan…okay, really it is
Who cares if you are Khan if I don’t know who that is?
The biggest twist in movie history http://starwars.com/watch/episode_5_i_am_your_father.html
Not the biggest twist in movie history http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vW8JQu23CXo
An evil Khan can wipe out Klingons while standing still but needs Kirk to brawl.
John Harrison is Rambo
By bringing in Nimoy, we canonize the old films as necessary, including their mistakes in history.
The 1960’s Roddenberry-verse had Khan as an evil overlord in the 90’s
The 80’s film Wrath of Khan played with the future as well.
JJ Abrams must think this actually happened! Because it is the timeline he sticks with when writing Khan without changing backstory.
Stank remembers less of Khan Noonien Singh in the 90’s and more grunge, flannel, and Saved by the Bell.
Khan’s cryochamber manual
Why does Khan need to keep Kirk, his little shadow, along if he is so evil?
Our only reason for backstabbing Khan is because of the word of Admiral Robocop and a gut feeling.
Difference in Roddenberryverse vs Abramsverse…Why can’t Khan be referenced as from the third World War of Star Trek established history?
Star trek pulls from so many great references, except when it comes to writing the plot.
Kirk gets in trouble long enough to get the fun but not the responsibility.
We got into the ocean without getting in trouble, but we can’t leave because that involves the same process.
Apparently beaming doesn’t work if smoke is in the way.
Why are natives drawing a bird’s eye view?
Iconic…the right word for the right job
Star Trek is meant to inspire, the immortal accomplishment seems to much.
[Edit] Gus van Sant, not Jonathan Demme did the Psycho remake in 1998, which shows how much the film mattered. Nobody cares for shot-for-shot refilming. See this film for why. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psycho_(1998_film)
The swinging door wont open if you both push at the same time
This seems like it is getting familiar
How much is that Vulcan in the Window?
Where have I seen this?
I thought this looked familiar!
This time, it made sense!
Going to the shuttlebay to get her groove on is like me inviting you to the garage to taste my meatloaf. Yes, it is awesome, and Yes, it is possible that I have a reason, but it still seems really odd.
There was no reason for the scene. It reduces the intelligent character to cheesecake for no reason. On a show that was willing to push the boundaries of respect for anyone regardless of origin, this reduction of the Dr. Marcus to a galactic dumb blonde just irked Stank. Why am I in my underwear on a shuttle craft and why am I trying to make Kirk feel bad?
Stank gets taken out of enjoyment when he wonders why we are battling on a trashtruck.
This Khan shows emotion !
The Ricardo Montalban Khan was probably a fun Khan to play!
This is a city that grew around Starfleet
The Star Trek San Francisco of the Future in the Darkness
The Castro has never looked more phallic
Stank’s Recommendation: If you care at all who Khan is, Don’t watch it. If you don’t care, have a great time!
Blackheart’s recommendation: The more you like Star Trek, the more you will dislike it.
