I’m not much of a Star Trek guy, so I don’t have much of an opinion about how the J.J. Abrams Star Trek universe compares to the previous (alternate?) ones. Screen Junkies sure has some opinions, though, and they made this Honest Trailer of Star Trek to give vent to a couple of them. They also made it because a bunch of fans were asking for it on Twitter. It’s also pretty hilarious.
Their beefs with the movie will be familiar to many fans, with much of their ire reserved for the throwing away of 50 years of canon, and even some of the story points of how the crew gets thrown together not through merit, but by less important means. And obviously, they call out the lens flare, because man — so much lens flare.
I kind of liked the 2009 Star Trek, but I think I like Honest Trailers even more.
- The Honest Trailer of Les Misérables is musical just like the film
- The one for Skyfall also makes some excellent points
- Obviously, they kind of tear Crystal Skull apart
