Dramatic special effects are used in JJ Abrams' Star Trek movie

This type of dramatic sequence was also used in the movie "Lost In Space" Checkout the similarites.

Who the heck does J.J. think hes kidding besides himself, just another cash point cha'ching should be the music score for this turkey.

I see no similarities. Not being snarky, I seriously don't see them. Can you point out what's the same?

If you relay on CGI to make your movie work best of luck, what about the script and the actors ability to keep the story line intresting, my point was simple I will not be convinced until I see the whole project Generations had a real good look and used CGI very well too bad the script was crap and the actors were not able to save it even though they were well seasoned with there roles in a star trek universe, hate to think how new actors will do it if veteran actors failed.

As for similarities J.J. hasn't a thought in is head that is his own creation,

Okay, now I see your point. You're simply stating that you're not going to say the movie is the most fantastic, bestest ever movie in the history of history just because of the special effects in it. And I completely understand and agree with them. While they look great, I can name one movie where the FX were great and the plotline was non-existent: 2001: A Space Odyssey. Oh, wait, 2: Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

i dunnoSpike...i remeber when both came out and yes 2001 kept me in the dark, yet i have to disagree with you on STMP.......it did get a academy award man, and no one gets an Iscar without making sense....LOL

and there were budget constraints that left STMP a little cut on the floor, unlike the latest that has serious money backings.

overall we foundout who Vger was and....had a litle prequel towho the "borg" are...hehe(even though the latter wsnt outwardly stated, it was a building block for the borg in next generations)

Romulans, sheesh. Klingons were the first adversaries encountered, NOT the bloody Romulans!!!! So now it's Romlulans with facial pigmentation/tattoos as well. "Abomination" is written ALL over this project.

2001 also got Oscars galore. Neither had much of a plotline as far as I'm concerned. They all mainly consisted of 15 minutes of plot, and the rest of the time "OOoooo! Look what we can do with SFX nao!"

I mean, seriously... how many times did we need to see the Enterprise flying through V'Ger?

i have to admit Spike you've littered Vics site with alot of Hate and BS towarsd the Franchise...but this latest comment really shows how Ignorant, stupid and foolish your comments are

2001 SO has been ranked as 1 of the top ten best films of all time by "sight & Sound, those are critics far more relistic and smarter than you spike...lmao

you are a just a new age CG fan boy having a fit and making no sense

dont disrespect Victors site like that Man

come here suppiorting all Trek at least and finding some good instead of openingyour mouth and showing just how ignorant you are!

big grin

You have my agreement that it will stop. I shan't make any more snide comments, and I apologize for the ones I directed at Alpha. Edits are in the works.

I distinctly remember my elation when I first viewed the original UK version of queer as folk dvd'. For one of the first times, our lives were the storylines and we were being shown in an honest way - just as human beings living our lives the best way we know how. Sometimes brutally honest though - some of the subject matter even made me cringe! But it was positive as the stereotypical views of the gay man and woman were being challenged.
Then news started filtering out that the US were planning on making their own version of queer as folk 1-5 dvd. Alot of people, me included, were very sceptical about this. The US doesn't have a high success rate when taking a successful UK format and developing it for US audiences.
So when the first season on Showtime's queer as folk dvd box set began airing in Australia in June 2002, I didn't have the elation that I felt with the UK version. And when I actually began watching the first episode, I was appalled. I thought 'this is one bad show'. Obviously being a fan of the UK version, the characters, actors and settings were fresh in my mind and it was natural to compare. And the US version came off a very poor second
