Didn't see a thread for this. 

I am not terribly excited about the direction they have taken this reboot but I like the characters, and I like sci-fi so I will check it out when it hits.  I am mostly making a thread for this hilarious mashup of the first trailer with shots from the classic show

But you really need to watch the original trailer here first to it makes sense.

But it is a couple of years old (CeeKay made the last post in it).

 icon_lol That nails it pretty well. The movie reboots are OK as mindless action flicks, but they ain't ST.

I laughed. A lot.

Also, I admit, Too Fast Too Star Trek doesn't give me much hope for a good film. Then again, it can't be any worse than Star Trek 2: We Tried To Clone A Far Better Film And Failed Miserably.

I watched Chappie recently and I had really liked District 9. It made me wish that Blomkamp would take a crack at directing Trek. While watching Chappie, I was just really struck by how similar his style of storytelling and exploration of themes was to original Trek and its movies, both in the pacing and depth of stories without compromising action, something that you really don't get a lot of these days.

I loved Abram's ST films, but I'm really tired of the "Space Maniac" and "Space Terrorism" angles. I'd like some exploration, I wouldn't even mind a Star Trek 4'ish more humane, comedic story focus but please don't just take classic Trek's 4 or 6 story lines and "reboot/rewrite" them.

I guess we'll know soon enough if the claims the first trailer don't really reflect the full movie are true or not.

As action films in space, I enjoy these films quite a bit. The actor's have good chemistry, and they've put together some great setpieces. As a lifelong Trekkie, these are not Star Trek films. I mean, the original films weren't always as philosophical/allegorical as the tv show, but then again, sometimes they were. These are just shallow, though well made, shoot-em-ups.

What? I'd read a car accident.

Terrible news.  He was starting to pop up in a lot of things.

It was an accident involving his car, at his home.  Left it in neutral and it rolled into him

It was both!  Crazy.  Sad and frustrating, too.

Worse still, his car was recently included in a recall for this very thing:

http://jalopnik.com/fiat-chrysler-is-recalling-1-1-million-cars-because-peo-1772561060#_ga=1.253950336.901381851.1379512541

The voluntary recall was made as the shifter led to 41 confirmed injuries. 

Quote
THE CONTACT OWNS A 2015 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE. WHILE THE ELECTRONIC SHIFTER WAS IN PARK, THE VEHICLE INDEPENDENTLY MOVED BACKWARDS AND STRUCK ANOTHER VEHICLE. THERE WERE NO INJURIES AND A POLICE REPORT WAS NOT FILED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE MECHANIC WHO STATED THAT THE REAR PASSENGER SIDE BUMPER WAS DAMAGED AND NEEDED TO BE REPAIRED.

Quote
THE JEEP’S ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSION DID NOT FULLY SHIFT IN TO THE “PARK” POSITION WHILE STILL RUNNING. MY WIFE EXITED THE VEHICLE TO TAKE OUR 3 YEAR OLD FROM THE BACK SEAT AND THE JEEP BEGAN TO ROLL AWAY. SHE RAN AND JUMPED IN TO THE DRIVER’S SEAT TO STOP IT AND IN THE PROCESS HER FOOT SLIPPED FROM THE BRAKE TO THE GAS PEDAL DRIVING THE CAR INTO/THROUGH A HOUSE. SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE WAS DONE TO THE VEHICLE AND THE HOME BUT NO ONE WAS INJURED.

From another news item on Yelchin
Quote
Yelchin, 27, died in an unusual and horrifying incident early Sunday morning when his SUV—a Jeep Grand Cherokee—was left in neutral and apparently rolled down his driveway when he was outside of it, crushing him into a mailbox.

It's sad that the car was recalled and that Anton wasn't aware of the risk posed by the design when he drove it.
