I guess I'm a little jealous. maybe. Although I find your lack of details (no spoilers) disturbing.
It was excellent. Spock-centric plot (Bana has a Khan moment "SPOCK! SPOOOOOOOCK!"), with Leonard Nimoy reprising his role as well.
Basically, the plot leaves us at Ultimate Star Trek. Same characters, but all the details are different. Casting was spot on, Karl Urban was great as Bones, and Sylar was excellent. Simon Pegg was the favorite, of course, and the kid playing Kirk did very well. All in all, 9/10. Very enjoyable.
It's been said that the guy playing Kirk was offered Hal Jordan. What do you think after seeing Star Trek. Could he do it?
Thougth about going to see it at the iMax...looks pretty good
I don't get what the big deal is with imax. If the movie is filmed FOR imax, then yea, but its all the same with just a bigger screen.
Answer my question jackball.
arnt all movies that goto imax pretty much filmed for imax and accommodated for other theaters?
He sure was cocky enough for Hal. A bit young, but the kirk role is basically Hal. "I DON'T BELIEVE IN A NO WIN SITUATION" + cocky + white boy = Hal.
I just ended three sentences with Hal.
Fuck, that's 4
Does the movie change continuity in the Star Trek universe or does it fix things? I have heard rumors that it reshapes the universe of Star Trek.
Well, it does. Time travel happens, and basically it's a separate off-shoot from the original continuity. Some pissed off Romulan (Bana) gets fucked 100 years in the future, black hole, changes shit by trying to rape everyone.
So how is Karl Urban as McCoy? John Cho as Sulu? And.... Zoe Saldana as Uhura?
Is Chewbacca in it?
depends. almost all major releases are released at the imax, but only certain movies are filmed with the actual imax camera, which is a 70mm instead of the regular 35mm film used.
take The Dark Knight for instance, the when the movie first plays and we see the bank job, the entire screen is open and everything is just in the monster huge scale, you see everything and the shots looking down give you those butterflies in your stomach (the scary kind) and everything just looks insane. cut to the sequence inside the vault and that black bars have appeared on the top and the bottom of the screen, which you're given a the normal shot, but at cabbie said, on a much larger screen. basically every outdoor shot was done with the imax camera, the bank job, the car chase, the hong kong grab, the building with the hostages/clowns, all filmed on imax.
another interesting detail, on the Dark Knight bluray, all imax scenes take up your entire screen. where the normal black bars on the bottom and top signify your standard movie, the imax scenes expand to fill the entire screen. and on a 120hz LCD tv, those scenes are absolutely amazing.
I'll have to watch that again, never noticed it.
for a movie like the dark knight it just seems like they should have filmed the whole thing in imax. Oh well
all I needed to hear
the film reel is larger, therefore more detail in the projection.
when it's filmed for imax (ala dark knight) they use imax specific size film, but the cameras are loud and noisy, thus it was mainly used for action scenes.
I wanna see it...
want now. although I heard things here and there that are making me
