Tease - Mark's Journal
This has to be one of the awesomest teaser trailers I've seen in a really long time.

Current Mood: drooling

The use of the old effects sounds was pretty excellent. I just hope they don't go all battlestar-galactica and have starfleet captains raping robots to give themselves indie-cred by out-darking the last guy.

It would also be nice if the didn't change any character's genders unexpectedly. Had so much trouble with that with Battlestar Galactica and oh shoot...the bug space war movie w/Dougie Howser from that Heinlein story....shoot. Brain burped and title went away.

Starship Troopers, I think.

Stopped by to see R's pool room. Very nice. We are allowed to use the photos on R's website for our website if we wish.

Quite good. I think the best teaser trailer ever is still the one for First Contact.

"Star Trek." Brilliant. Look for it when you get home. :-)

Oustanding! I knew this would be good when some of the still images leaked on the net yesterday!

It looks like Cloverfield is gonna be a HUGE hit. One more feather in JJ's hat, which will give Star Trek even more marketing power when it gets close to release.

This movie could very well be the needed upswing that Trek so badly needs to get back to good ol TNG days of being cool and popular again!

I wanted so badly to boycott this. I wanted so badly to hate this. I wanted so badly to have good reason to not see this.

I just explained to John that Christmas afternoon, we will be in the theater as a family, because I have not missed a Star Trek opening day since Kirk met God in ST V.

Why on earth would you WANT to hate something?

I generally find that people who express continuous and extreme hatred for (whatever) are doing so because they believe that the fewer things they like, the cooler they are. A side effect of this is the 'band obscurity complex paradox' wherein hipsters only like bands that are incredibly obscure, and when a critical mass of hipsters have found out about said band, they start hating it en masse because it's sold out.

I grew up with Kirk, Spock & McCoy. I've been watching them since I was 3. I'm a little nitpicky about certain things, I don't like recasting incredibly established characters (I stopped watching Dallas when Barbara Bel Geddes left and was replaced.), I don't like when a series' incredibly established historical background is tinkered with, and I'm wary about "hot new directors" taking their twisted vision and applying it to classics.

This isn't continuous or extreme hatred. Currently it's a concentrated healthy dislike of JJ Abrams' work. I've seen it, I've given it chances and I don't like it. I'm not a hipster. I'm an almost 33 year old, chubby, whiter-than-a-ghost work at home mom whose childhood includes many happy memories involving William Shatner as Kirk, Leonard Nimoy as Spock and DeForest Kelley as McCoy. I don't hate things just because it's cool. I choose to hate things because when I see/hear/taste/touch/smell it, it produces a viscerally intense negative reaction in my body/gut/soul. My entire life I've been off the mainstream path and liked/disliked things on merit, not because it's the popular or cool thing to do.
