Star Trek Fans Bash J.J. Abrams’ Film as “Fun, Watchable”

the-onion-trek-bash-header

The news cast from The Onion about fan reaction to the J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek film is hilarious. The entire news cast is one humungous stone breaking against the Trekkies who know and love the old Star Trek films and series. What is surprising is that The Onion news casters, Glen Bannon and Bree Lindsay, are able to hold a straight face through the segment. I am guessing they had a few takes before the one you will be able to view below. Enjoy and leave your thoughts on it.

  • As I mentioned about the comments you left on our site, if your a trekkie you may not appreciate the film as much as the rest of us. Obviously, this film did much better for those who are NOT FANS of the film. I’ve heard nothing but praise from many friends who I encouraged to watch it…. 🙂

  • Being a Trekkie or not has nothing to do with my opinion of the film. I have problems with elements of the film in general, not with their use of canon.

  • Your obviously one of the few who think so. I’ve looked at places like ROTTEN TOMATOES and IMDB and Star Trek ratings are off the charts. I’d really like to see your review on it and see how many agree with you… 😉

    I have to be honest i do not like star treck but then I have never sat down to watch any. But I think the film looks good. The only thing is though if you are a die hard star treck fan it must feel like you have been black balled a bit because it looks like they have catered for non star trek fans to gain a widder audience. Now that must be horrible if you have followed it from the begging. Thats why Serenity the film was so good because they gave back to the die hard fans of FireFly. Where by the looks of it Star Treck has not.

  • I will be in the minority. So be it. I look upon this film with unclouded eyes.

    Do not worry, you will see my review. I have many good and not so good comments to make about the film.

  • Was hoping the new Star Trek movie wouldn’t disappoint like Wolverine did, and ST came through.

    Theres only one space adventure for me and thats Firefly. So why are the die hard fans so upset with it. Is it really that bad.

  • I looked upon the film without bias or opinion as well. I had no clue what the story would be about and I really dont know the STAR TREK world very well. (im a die hard STAR WARS fan)… Again, I thought it was great and it did disappoint myself or nor my wife.
