Well, I'm off tomorrow at the IMAX. I have my reservations about Kirk, Scotty and Uhura, but all the reviews say it's great, so I expect to like it. More than Nemesis, Insurrection and The Voyage Home, at least!

Absolutely stunning. JJ has done us proud. Of course, everybody who hates new Who will hate this movie for all the same reasons they hate new Who. Undoubtedly the best Star Trek movie in years.

Agreed. I can already hear the cries in Trek-nation that the nacelles all wrong, which rather reminds me of the bruhaha over the windows on the Police Box being the wrong size.

Having seen the film, I can say the Frank blog is an excellent review. I thoroughly enjoyed that adreneline-infused tale, and while I went into this movie having some doubts about Chris Pine as Kirk, he did a good job blowing those doubts away.

10/10, now dance (with a green-skinned Orion girl) Very Happy

I won't be seeing this for another 11 days yet. Sad But, having said that, in a fairly unique situation, all four of us will be going to watch the movie.

And ultimately in the scheme of things a couple of weeks isn't going to change the course of history. Smile

Well, we'd considered going over to Glasgow, to see it at the IMAX but have decided to see it at the Odeon tomorrow, instead. (There's only one Cinema complex in Fife, apart from a small cinema in St Andrews.)

I thought it was great - it made me think of Trek the way I did as a kid, as a huge space adventure with the Enterprise zipping around the universe, stopping every so often for a big fight. Abrams has done exactly what RTD did with Who - accepted and respected the old continuity, then put it in a box and got on with entertaining people.

Brilliant casting too - they all get out from under the shadow of their predecessors. Pine is superb as Kirk, making him a cocky force of nature who you just can't help cheering for.

Great stuff, hoping I get the chance to see it again, and looking forward to the inevitable sequels.

Yeah, once I got over the first ten minutes of boiling rage, started off by the Nokia phone and ringtone in Kirk's car, I really got into it. Especially when McCoy turned up and Kirk got big hands. The cast were largely excellent, and I was pleasantly surprised by Kirk.

Bana though was f'in turd "Hi Christopher I'm Nero", but even a good actor couldn't have made much out of that role.

What was annoying was:

constant camera glare - it wasn't a documentary, the camera isn't supposed to be there.

the cameraman had parkinson's disease - it would have been nice to be able to see what's going on without the constant movement and shake and odd angles.

I'll probably like it better on a smaller screen as I think the IMAX screen amplifies the zaniness of the cinematography.

Oh and everybody clapped at the end. except me. I'm no nerd.

I clapped, along with everyone else in the cinema. Although, whilst doing so I did wonder why I was clapping, after all, it is not as if any of the cast and crew could hear the applause.

Funny thing about those Andorians and their antennae: when they get married, the wedding itself isn't all that good, but the reception is excellent.
lol!





My coat? Oh, thanks.

Yesterday afternoon I met Ingrid Donnadieu, the actress who's the voice of Uhura in French as well as Frank Hervé , who adapted the Star Trek dialogues into French for the dubbing - it was a small meeting in Paris for fans of tv series and films and an excuse to meet for us French Whovians -even though there was nothing organised about Doctor Who.

Anyway, I was shocked to hear that for fear of piracy, the film sent to the dubbing studio is - how to explain? It's all black and all you can see is the mouth of the original actors, not the whole picture. Sometimes you can see the whole face of the original actors and Ingrid Donnadieu said she considered it lucky when that was the case because the dubbing actors need to have the information conveyed by their eyes, to have a voice performance that goes well with the original actors' performance.

Also, Franck Hervé talked about all the care that went into translating Star Trek correctly - because of all the technical terms. They had a fan consultant to check everything. That's why Star Trek has an excellent French version. We couldn't help but compare with Doctor Who, because unfortunately the means allocated to the dubbing are not at all the same as Star Trek - and the Whovian friend sitting next to me couldn't help but talk about that. After a while Ingrid Donnadieu asked her "who's that man on your T-shirt?" It was David Tennant! and the guy from "La Gazette du doublage" (a website about dubbing) then asked "are there Doctor Who fans here?" and almost everyone shouted "OUAIIIIS !!". It was weird, there were actually no Trekkies in the room. Anyway, we were all very interested to learn more about dubbing in general because we have quite a debate going on about dubbing on the French DW forum.

What an interesting post! Thank you very much for sharing this information.

It sounds like the dubbing experience was a nightmare for the actors.

The last news we had on this subject was that the sequel was planned for a summer 2012 release. If you can break yourself away from the Olympics, this may be a movie to go see.

Release has now been delayed to 2013, as they're only just starting production.

But the big news is that there's been some more casting news - and Noel Clarke's going to be joining Simon Pegg in the 'been in both New Who and New Trek' club.

Oh, and Benedict Cumberbatch too - as the villain, apparently.

A couple of months ago, there was a rumor that Benecio Del Toro was going to be in this movie as the villain- and the rumor mill was churning overtime that he was going to play a very young Khan Noonian Singh (Ricardo Montalban's part.)

Apparently, they scrapped that. I wonder who Cumberbatch will play? Harcourt Fenton Mudd?
