Fortunately he is keeping his hand in as Producer.

I'm pretty sure the Director will be following his cues.
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.

Other than the fact he has not left and is still executive producer, I hope you are not being serious in any way. If he ruined your life by two films set in an alternate universe then you might want to re-evaluate your life.

Yes, because movies produced by the same guy will always wind up being exactly alike. That's why you can't tell the difference between, say, American Graffiti, THX-1138, and Raiders of the Lost Ark, or between Citizen Kane, Journey Into Fear, or the radio-play version of War of the Worlds.

They shouldnt have tried to reboot the TOS series to begin with. Anytime all new actors are cast to play an old role you have issues with comparing the two. They should have cast a whole new crew and set it in a different time and not a different timeline. Between TOS and Enterprise or between TOS and TNG so the ship designers could create a new ship if they choose, and it could be a hero ship by being an experimental ship or limited to only a few were built to tie it into the exhisting universe. Theres no rule the ship has to be Enterprise either, there is Defiant and Voyager as hero ships. So a whole new hero ship would be accepted.

Rebooting just pisses off the fanbase. As for myself I enjoyed the 2 JJ movies and do not have any hate for them. They were entertaining for a couple hours but I am looking forawrd to a new director as well.

A double director collaboration between:




David Lynch & Quentin Tarantino

ITD was definitely not space Moby **** like WOK was.


As for WOK being the best.

There are First Contact, Voyage Home, Undiscovered County fans who might disagree.
What?


Hahaha

On a semi-related note, the funny thing with Star Trek was that there have been key people in place that knew next to nothing about the franchise. Nicholas Meyer for one, having been a driving force in the creating of the better ST movies with the TOS crew.

Whoever it is supposed to be, JJ or not, we'll see.

And there's a lot of smug, straw-man creating from you in this thread, but you don't see anyone feeling the need to point it out whilst nursing a massive e-chubby in the style of your good self.



Oh no wait, look what I've gone and done...
