    Re: Star Trek II

    There is only one Kahn and that was Ricardo Montalban. This guy didn't have any of the charisma that the original character had. Since when is Spok getting bailed out in a fight by a chick????

    Good flick, but not sure if it was worth the $38 I threw down (before corn and Coke) for Imax - 3D.

    Re: Star Trek II

    Saw it this afternoon, really enjoyed it. It was a bit predictable at times, but overall a damn good movie.

    Id disagree on that one. VI is still in the 'even numbered star trek is good star trek' list, but itd be behind II, IV, First contact, and both of the Abrams star treks for me.

    I actually just came back from seeing it. Why couldn't they just take some of Kahn's people's blood for the transfusion? I didn't understand that. If his people are the superior race then wouldn't they have the same magic blood?

    It also doesn't have a rap that I know of, which may give a slight edge to IV:

    I thought of that too, though thatd mean waking another one up.

    I was just thinking about this today. My favorites are:

    1. First Contact
    2. VI Undiscovered Country
    3. II Wrath of Kahn
    4. Star Trek 2009
    5. III The Search for Spock

    I generally like TNG better than TOS but First Contact is the only TNG movie I like.

    Re: Star Trek II

    They actually put Kahn in this? Holy ****, he was a one off character from a few episodes during the original series run. Has Hollywood completely run out of ideas now?

    And the people who buy into this, I have some swampland in Florida for sale, if you don't like that, there is this new thing, it's called a pyramid scheme. You give me a bunch of money, then, when you sign up some people, they give you a bunch of money, that you in turn, give me. Then, I'll give you a few bucks back. Or even better, there is this TV show, where an alien lives with this family, he loves to eat cats and his name, it's ALF.

    I would agree with this generally. Generations isnt that bad either. But after first contact the movies went way downhill.

    He was also the most iconic character from the first set of movies, and it makes sense to revisit him in the new timeline.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Yes, for a Hollywood lacking of creativity and new thought. Did he have a fake chest in this version as well?

    Sorry, but if you saw him in the original series, then again, in the movies, that storyline was pretty much told. I'm holding out for Star Trek the Musical: The Dance of Kahn, then I'm all in.

    Except the entire timeline has changed, and the story is vastly different, and the way they twist things around is very good. If anything it'd be a huge disservice to the series not to have a character like Khan show up in this universe.

    Complaining about hollywood being unoriginal is about as unoriginal as, well, hollywood. Especially when youre talking about a movie in a franchise thats spanned 50 years and tons of sequels and new series. Itd be like complaining about all Bond movies being so similar.

    Re: Star Trek II

    Just now figuring out that Hollywood is out of ideas?

    The Dukes of Hazzard TV show was based off a movie. Hollywood then made a movie based off of the TV show that was based off of the original movie.
