>This is a hackneyed stereotype and it is almost as old as Hollywood itself. I'm amazed that so few people can see that. There are a few on here that have said the same thing as me. The PineKirk is not a developed character - it is a cardboard cut-out caracature (and not a very good one at that).

>This has been done a million times before. The kid with an axe to grind against everybody. The poor little tearaway James Dean type looking for a fight to prove himself - getting into trouble with the law etc.

>You are not looking at James Kirk on the screen - you are looking at every teenage punk that has ever appeared in any coming of age story in the last 50 years since Rebel Without A Cause.

>The Pine portrayal was a betrayal. It was not Kirk at all. It was somebody with the same name - but not the same persona.



Thank you, Ghostmojo.

That's exactly what I thought. I was quiet disappointed when I saw his performance. To me this wasn't "James Tiberius Kirk".

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one.

SO MUCH BETTER! That's the only thing I liked about that movie.

The universe can giggle all it wants, but it's not gettin' any of our bourbon!
