SO now he's directing both Star Trek and Star Wars. There's a joke here....


He has finished the new Star Trek movie and might past the 3rd on to another Director. Just like Singer did with X-Men


And we all know how that turned out. Well, at least he's returning for the sequel to First Class, right? That should be good.

I wish Abrams could direct future ST films as well, but you're right, it is a bit unlikely. Has any director out there has been able to direct two entirely seperate blockbuster films that released within a year of eachother? That's a feat that not even the great Micheal Bay could pull off.



lol, I'm only kidding. I'm not gonna lie, though, I did watch all three Transformers films, and I'd watch a fourth too.

Anyway,  I don't think X2 was a bad film, it just didn't live up to X2, which was amazing. It was still better than the first film, though.

I watched all three aswell. I never go into his movies expecting much though, especially for the story of the film. 


I only watch them for the SFX and explosions. Honestly, if I were watching them by myself, I'd probably just skip through all the human parts. I can do without the dreadful humor.

They should just take out the human actors all together. I mean I was hoping for an actual transformers movie. Like one where they are in cybertron where the Autobots are facing the Decepticons. I guess it probably costs too much to CGI that many robots though.

Do you watch movies for the explosions? If I put on a dvd of awesome explosions and SFX, no narrative at all, would you consider that good entertainment?

Well, it depends. there would have to be a great deal of variety in those explosions to make it worthwhile. Add some narrative in there...yeah, I could do it.

Heh, seriously, though. I do prefer movies to have a bit more depth to them, but shallow action films can be good on occasion as well.

Who knows, if they cut out the human component and hired some competent writers, they could actually make a decent film! They should keep the explosions, though. Actually, I'd prefer if they doubled them.

You can never have too many explosions.

Affleck has seriously proved himself to me as a great director and actor. Argo and the Town are one of my favorite films of all time.



I agree. Still no chance.
