There’s a new trailer out for Star Trek Into Darkness. It’s a pretty fucking epic trailer.
Looks awesome, yeah? i want to stand up and applaud after watching that.
but do these J.J. Abrams movies feel like Star Trek?
And does it matter? Does Star Trek have, for lack of a better term, umami, that is or should be present in the J.J. Abrams films? and if yes, what is that particular flavor?
I’ll go first. You know how a lot of people were annoyed with the X-Men prequel that came out a couple years ago? Long time fans said it didn’t jive with the cannon story line and ret-conned a bunch of stuff. my only experience with X-Men is the movies, so if characters and plotlines were changed from the comics I had no way of knowing. The way Abrams is handling Star Trek makes me really sympathize with those X-Men fans.
