movies: To boldly go… back to the beginning?
A new Star Trek trailer is out and people are buzzing about it on the interwebs. I haven’t been all that jazzed about it because frankly I’m sick of the remakes. I feel like either we’ve exhausted all new creativity and no one wants to admit it… Or people are just lazy.
But it does have Simon Pegg playing a probably even cheekier Scotty than Doohan could. That alone might make it worth watching. And when all’s said, it is pretty badass. It’s just weird to watch a prequel that looks more technologically badass than the original story it’s preceding. (Yes Enterprise, I’m looking in your direction.)
Higher quality trailers are at Apple, and with the miracle of Quicktime about 2/3 into it you can advance the frame back and forth to see Spock and Kirk give each other Brokeback Eyes before Spock apparently tries to beat the crap out of him. Buttsex Subtext, FTW.
Hey, you watch the film for what you wanna see, and I’ll watch for what I wanna see. Much like Jadzia Dax, however, I am developing a fondness for Quinto’s Spock. Must be the clean-shavenness. He doesn’t have the power of super-sexy-permastubble like Ramamurthy on Heroes.
