Welp. You know the deal. Pretty much anything Star Wars. The good, bad, and ugly. Mostly bad and ugly, though.

Well that is in no way macabre.
It's a fan nickname... but I think it speaks to how effective the appeal to emotion embodied by the Ewoks really was.

So... since no one else seems to have noticed, they took Michael Arndt off as writer of Episode VII... Abrams and Kasdan are taking over. The exact wording of the departure seems to be that he quit...

Now, why might someone quit...? <_<

Okay, we've heard the Walters rant one ten too many times, but what do you have against Abrams? His Star Trek films may not be very good Star Trek, but they were perfectly good sci-fi action flicks...which is pretty much what Star Wars is (or should be) to begin with. On which note, Star Trek has generally kind of sucked in the movie department...the TV shows (read: TNG and DS9 ) were much better than the films (though a few of the TOS films were decent--namely Wrath of Khan, The Voyage Home, and to a much lesser extent The Undiscovered Country--but still not as good as TNG and DS9).

I personally rank Undiscovered Country over Voyage Home... but that's because I like political intrigue and strong sendoffs over eco-nut plots mixed with half-assed social commentary.

But yeah, the Walters fixation is starting to verge into Shifteresque territory. I say this as a friendly warning. I'd really rather not have this thread devolve into, well, this:

To be fair, it's probably been ten years since I've seen any of the TOS films, and my memories of each film are largely restricted to earbugs and KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAN from II; whales, nerve-pinched punks, Scotty talking to a computer, and transparent aluminum from IV; and floating pink blood in VI. Perhaps if I rewatched them now, my opinion would be different.

You need to watch the SFDebris review on ST4, then... it's still a fun movie, but he has little tolerance for the "I touched a dolphin and now I'm healed" yuppie idiocy.

Well, FA didn't mention Trek specifically--it's just all I know Abrams for. But yeah, they do receive a lot of flak from the fanbase. Like I said, they may not be very Star Trek-y, but they were good movies in their own right.

But honestly the others weren't that great, may I even say lame? The first was mind numbingly boring and anticlimactic and they got worse as they went on(though 2 is alright).

I'm no Star Trek fan. Not in the least (however I did like Khan). However, the fact that he actually made Star Trek WORSE doesn't bode well for the fate of VII.

Bah, don't listen to the old Trekkies wailing that Shatner is the only true Captain (never mind Captain Kirk). What I was saying was that JJTrek really isn't in keeping with the tone of the original Star Trek, but it's very entertaining sci-fi nonetheless--and much more in line with the tone I'd expect from SW. I personally have confidence in Abrams for EpVII--he certainly can't do worse than Lucas.

I'm no Star Trek fan. Not in the least (however I did like Khan). However, the fact that he actually made Star Trek WORSE doesn't bode well for the fate of VII.
He didn't make it worse. He kicked a lethargic, dead franchise (murdered by Stuart Baird, Brent Spiner, Patrick Stewart, and John Logan... though slowly bled by Rick Berman) back into shape. Star Trek (2009) was exactly what was needed.

The problem was some fans--namely, the ones that think The Motion Picture is the absolute best Trek film ever--didn't like the lack of navel-gazing, leftist platitudes, and insomnia-curing boredom. Some others do take issue with the writing--and it's not perfect in Star Trek--but Abrams didn't write it: that's on Orci and Kurtzman. Abrams turned something with quite a few plot holes and some "huh?!" moments into an enjoyable, fun, and interesting origin story that I can watch over and over again. And I even like watching The Motion Picture now and then!

Into Darkness had bigger problems, again, down to the writing. Abrams was able to keep it from becoming another Nemesis.

Put simply, whatever his faults and quirks... if Abrams had directed TPM--as written!--it would've at least been entertaining instead of an insomnia cure.

Where on Earth are you getting your Trek info, FA?
