First how was Watchmen? Second, I will most definitely see Trek if they do that.

First the Trek news: not only are they going to definitely do that, the local Trek society is trying to see if they can turn the theatre into the Bridge! cool

Watchmen: The movie was good, not great. Very faithful to the graphic novel, perhaps too much so. If you haven't read Watchmen there was enough in there that you'd still understand and "get" it, much, much more so if you're old enough to remember the Cold War. They did a great job of bringing back that whole "we're gonna die from nuclear fallout" constant dread.

The negatives: a bit too long, dragged at points, too much narration, with violence bordering on Monty Python levels (too surreal, too over-the-top), and way, way too many naked male butt shots! Not to mention the greatly improved "asset" of the naked blue man...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
(hung like a horse and moved like one too).


I thought they could've lost more of the narration style too. Seems the director didn't go to the "show, don't tell" school of filming unless it comes to violence or naked guys.

The positives: gorgeously filmed, very well choreographed, most of the actors worked well in their roles, the beginning and ending (new parts) worked well. It was like watching a live-action version of the graphic novel. I liked it!

Wow, that actually looks really good! I'm not a Star Trek fan, although I did watch it a lot as a small child. I think I'm going to have to see this one!

I'm good friends with the guy who designed costumes for the antagonists in the new Trek movie. Who wants to touch me?

Wow. Okay! I had been pretty dismissive of this project until I clicked on the link.

So my question is; is this a "prequel" or a reboot of the franchise?

I have read it is like Batman Begins....it is a prequel, but they aren't sticking to "trek cannon" and are making it a new unique story with a Trek theme.....I am looking forward to it.

I was also very unimpressed with the idea of this. I mean, what can you possibly do to these characters? They have been explored in great depth over the years. Then one of my high school students came in all excited about it. He had never seen any of the shows or movies. We talked about my negative feelings towards it and he responded, "This is a great way to get a new generation of fans though. Nobody my age knows who these characters are and now is our chance."

That completely changed my mind and I am now looking forward to seeing it!

for me, it will be hard to watch as I will continuously expect Spock to slice Kirk's skull cap off and steal his powers.
