Trailer Trash Tuesday (Part 2): Star Trek
I wrote about this movie a bit in my 2009 preview, and I don't want to belabor the point, but the more I see about this movie -- and the less it reminds me of actual Star Trek -- the more rabid I get about wanting to see it. Yes, trailers can be deceiving and make a movie look more exciting than it is. Come to think of it, that's the trailer's job.
But if the movie being promised ends up anything like the movie being sold, I am so totally in. I can't believe they were ever thinking of opening this in December -- this is a summer movie if I ever saw one. Sometimes, I'm just looking for a movie to throw the kitchen sink at the screen, have Eric Bana scream "Fire everything!" and have planets sucked inwards by Romulan black holes. That's all. It can't be stupid or boring (...Transformers), but I don't need the prime directive in order to feel like I'm getting everything I want out of a Star Trek movie. Cannot wait.
I will now hear objections from the fanboy community.
