I have thought about this rationally.
I am a fan of Nimoy's, but I believe he is pretty much of crap with regards to this movie. His endorsement holds very little water with me.

because you're the 5 gallon bottle of credibility aren't you?

I have more credibility then Nimoy.
I didn't take a bribe.

You were conned into going to see a remake.
And you don't even realize it.

I personally wasn't conned into anything. I knew once it was announced that I was going to see it regardless if it was of if it was a remake or not.

:logical:

You're just as gullible as the so called therapist.

And the so-called rocketscientist?  

We're both for real Matt and you're not looking too good to us and, I think, most of the other people here (except maybe for DJ, axilmar, and Trek_Is_Philosophy, you fit right in there with them).  

You really are embarrassing yourself.  Whatever your problem is, and I believe there has got to be one, you'd be better off if you could just get over it instead of behaving the way you have.  

Do you want to get banned again or something?  Why make us suffer for your personal issues?  That's not cool, dude.

The problem is they are half-heartedly trying to pander to Trek fans, when they truly do not care about them.

With fans like you, why would they want to?

Guess what, like he said in an interview, go ahead and be angry.  He doesn't care about "fans" like you.  

I say good for him.  LN strikes me as a modest, thoughtful, and nice guy.

At least he's not on a message board trying to get people to see things his way. At least he's smart enough to get paid for what he believes in. Look at you...all you can do is wallow around on a message board flailing and crying like an impotent jerk, lashing out at anyone who doesn't see things your way.

Word.

I gotta agree here... Matt JC/ Brian H May should just cut this crap out. It's disrespectful and stupid.

Hope you all (ST, Vger, PC, and Dude) had a great day.

I had a great day, thanks RS!!!, hope you did too!

Yeah, I haven't been online lately because of reoccurring threads like this one. Even though I hated the film, I don't see why these people feel it necessary to complain about it months later! lol.

So what if you hated the film!  Who cares?  It's just a film.  

Glad you had a great day.  I got burned red as a lobster at the beach, but it was a fun day.

I saw that film Moon.  I reccomend it for people who like a 2001 style sci-fi mystery.  I liked it a lot but my wife got bored.

Agreed... I'm not losing sleep over the fact that I thought it wasn't that great. Some people take Star Trek waaaay too seriously.

And thanks, I may check that film out!

Here's another interview from Mr. Nimoy wrt ST XI.


http://www.clickondetroit.com/celebrity/19384980/detail.html

And some quotes:

Quote

The Kirk backstory in question, was in 1994's "Star Trek: Generations," the seventh "Trek" movie, where the cast of "The Next Generation" television series was introduced to the big-screen franchise and the cast members of the classic series were phased out. Some moves were curious if not controversial -- like killing Kirk off at the end of the movie. As for Spock, he didn't even make an appearance.

"When they eliminated Spock and killed Kirk, it was really a loss for both of us," Nimoy said. "I felt that we both had a lot that we could still contribute to 'Star Trek,' but the people who were making those films went their own way and they had a right to, I guess. I don't hold them responsible in any way. It was just a fact that they decided that they were going to go ahead without Spock and Kirk."


Again, this is a reference to how Nimoy felt he was "marginalized" by Rick Berman, although he's being more diplomatic here.  

I do think he and Shatner could've contributed to the other films.  Of course, they would've overshadowed the TNG cast, so if they were included it would have to be organic to the story.  For example, it still mystifies me why Nimoy was not in NEM.  After the relatively poor performance and reception of INS, and the flagging ratings of ENT, a lot was riding on NEM.  Again, why in the world wouldn't Berman put Spock in that film, especially when it was centered around Romulus?!??!  

Similarly, you didn't have to kill off Kirk at the end of GEN.  I really really liked the interaction between Kirk and Picard in GEN.  It is one of few things that has made me watch the movie several times (it sure isn't the muddled, crappy story).  Shatner and Stewart both bonded in this movie and they had a lot of fun with Malcolm McDowell too.  Stewart said he was really let down that they wouldn't be able to do it again with Kirk dead.  

So maybe they could've done something later on with Kirk too.  By killing him they eliminated that possibility.  Heck, he could've even showed up in DS9.  

That said, again, I didn't have a problem with them killing Kirk off, I just felt it should've been done in a much much better film and in a better way than in GEN.

As for Abrams, Nimoy couldn't have been more impressed with the filmmaker, the mastermind behind hit shows "Alias," "Lost" and "Fringe" (which Nimoy recently guest-starred on), as well as the films "Cloverfield" and "Mission: Impossible III."
The odd thing is, Abrams is admittedly more of a fan of "Star Wars" than "Star Trek"; but Nimoy feels the unfamiliarity with the latter actually worked toward the director's advantage for this new "Trek" voyage.
"He wasn't bound by the sensibility of what had come before -- but on the other hand, Orci and Kurtzman were very much involved with 'Star Trek' and really understood and appreciated the whole history of it," Nimoy said. "So between the group, they were able to find a real good sense of what had gone before and a real good sense of taking it forward."


I agree with Nimoy's assesment of Abrams and so do a lot of the critics.  Heck, even Bryan Singer observed that Abrams' unfamiliarity with Star Trek and his love of SW proved to be an asset for ST XI, like his unfamiliarity with the Xmen comics helped him with X-men.

Then I will reword for those who are sensitive. I tried explaining this to some people but they insisted otherwise. You post that link and I was involved in that discussion but my opinion has not changed.

Some excerpts from trekweb.com on a new interview with Leonard Nimoy. ¿Some of this, he's said before, including how he felt about Berman's treatment of Spock in GEN (and why he turned the film down), the death of Kirk, how Abrams, Orci, and Kurtzmann got him interested in ST again, how the new film is a ressurection (he's compared it to TWOK in that respect in a previous interview), etc.

There's some new stuff to, though. ¿He compliments Patrick Stewart and the TNG cast. ¿I don't think his problem was with those characters or actors at all. ¿I recall him saying he enjoyed acting with Stewart and Spiner in Unification. ¿

Leonard Nimoy on Star Trek Resurrection, Star Trek XII and TNG Movies

By GustavoLeao / 10:24, 30 August 2009 / Star Trek: Nemesis




BIGFANBOY.com posted a new interview with Star Trek star Leonard Nimoy and here are few excerpts.

Leonard: What do you want to talk about?

Mark: Let's talk about how STAR TREK kicks ass again!

Leonard: Ha! It does, it did, it is.

Mark: It's gotta be really gratifying.

Leonard: It's great. We're experiencing another resurrection. We need one every few years. It's a terrific movie and doing fantastic business... and finding a whole new audience, as well as bringing back the original audience. The franchise is healthy again, and I expect there will be more films. I understand that there's another script being developed right now. I have no idea what it's about or who is going to be in it. I expect Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto and the rest of those good people will be in it. And the same writers are working on it, Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman. J.J. Abrams will produce, and decide later if he wants to direct it, which is his option. I hope he does, because he did a great job on this movie. I was with him the night before last at the Saturn Awards. He's a very busy guy. He's got I don't know how many TV series going and several movies going. He's the new Spielberg. And he's very good at it, so it's exciting, and I feel very good about being back in STAR TREK. It's been I think... I'm guessing about 18 years since I acted in a STAR TREK film... 18 years between the last one and this one.

Mark: Looking back over your career in the past few decades, you've been extremely selective about the roles that you take. What was it about FRINGE and the role of William Bell that attracted you and made you say I think I want to come back to television.

Leonard: Well you know... I owe a lot to J.J. Abrams. After we did the first six STAR TREK movies, when the first NEXT GENERATION film came along, I was sent the script and I found that in one scene, I think it was the very opening scene of the movie, it indicated that Spock was present along with the rest of the original series cast. Spock had five lines of dialogue... none of them were "Spock" lines, in the sense that there was no character in any of the dialogue. It was expository dialogue that could be spoken by anybody else in the room, and in fact that's what I said to the producer. "You could just divide these lines amongst other people in the room, and never miss Spock." And that's exactly what they did. I didn't want to be there if I couldn't make a Spock contribution. In that movie, as a result, there was no Spock and Kirk was killed. And I felt... it was was not my position to say anything about it, it was not my movie... I wasn't producing, I wasn't directing... but I felt that they were dispensing with two very valuable characters in the franchise. But they obviously had a cast of their own... good people, Patrick Stewart and the rest, good people. And they felt that they could go their own way, and they did for several films. And I was okay about that. I went about my business doing an occasional piece of work, but mostly photography from that point on. Eighteen or seventeen years later I get a call from J.J. Abrams, who said "We'd like to talk to you." And I went to a meeting where I was deeply moved by the conversation, because Orci and Kurtzman the two writers and J.J. talked about Spock in a way that I hadn't heard for years. They talked about the original intent of STAR TREK, the original philosophy of STAR TREK, and the original value of the Spock character. And I was very touched by that, because I thought they were offering me a homecoming in a way. They were offering me closure which I did not get originally. I did not get a closure on the first films. And I was very touched by that, and I said I would look forward to reading a script. I didn't guarantee that I would do it, they didn't ask for a guarantee on the spot, but they said "We're going write a script, and there will be a lot of Spock in the script. And we'd like to know if you'll at least read it and consider doing it." And I said "Yes I would." I got the script and they sent... a young fella came with the script from the studio, and said "I'm to sit here and wait while you read it."
