At first I was like “oh some guy being a really awesome athlete” AND THEN I REALIZED WHAT I WAS ACTUALLY LOOKING AT
OPEN YOUR MIND MR. QUAID
which is to say I probably could have written it
being a virgin is ok
sex isnt that great
get some nachos instead
I agree with the first sentiment but come on you can’t say sex isn’t great
also I don’t like nachos very much but what if you combined the two somehow
The first sentence is fine if that’s your thing but really guys once you have sex you’re gonna think it’s pretty rad and probably want to do it again. And preferably a few more times after that.
But really I think we’re getting somewhere with this sex and nachos idea… I’m sure if we all put our heads and other body parts together we can make this a reality
Make mine extra spicy please and thanks
hey u kids wanna buy some drugs
I like that he has a drink just in case he gets thirsty in there
fileacomplaint asked: Also, I thought Robocop put the bodies into the torpedoes and was like, "yo khan, Imma kill everyone you've ever known unless you start a war between us and the Klingons. Yo this is a super obtuse way to go about this, but whateves, I'm robocop."
Like I said, maybe I missed a line, which would have been easy considering the plot never really gave you a moment to stop and process what was happening, but I thought Murphy was just holding Khan’s people hostage in order to have him make new weapontry and ships for Starfleet, and that it was Khan who put them inside the torpedoes so he could try to smuggle them out (which, admittedly, who would suspect you’re smuggling your own people out on a warhead? It just doesnt make sense to me that they were actually armed, though perhaps Murphy armed them after the fact I DONT KNOW)
gnumblr replied to your post: Also, and maybe I missed a line somewhere that explained this, but
he wrongly predicted that the crew of the Enterprise wouldn’t be so heartless as to send the innocent crew of Khan to their deaths. He was trying to use them as a bargaining chip to manipulate the stakes and keep control of the situation.
That only makes sense if the torpedoes were actually inert, even if everyone else didnt know it. But they were live ammunitions, so all it would take is for some unassuming Starfleet commander to go: “hey, here’s a bunch of torpedoes lying around, let’s put them in a ship and fire them at somebody”, WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED (except, of course, the commander in question actually knew they were in there, which makes Khan’s plan look even stupider).
Also, the Enterprise didnt know they were in there at first, so there would never even have been a crisis of conscience if they had actually followed Wallace’s orders and fired them.
To save your cryogenically frozen people, WHY DID IT SEEM LIKE A GOOD IDEA TO STRAP THEM TO TORPEDOES. HOW DID YOU THINK THIS WAS GOING TO END? Where, in your mind, did you think about this and go: “yeah… yeah what could possibly go wrong, it’s not like torpedoes explode or anything”
And let me preface this by saying I did enjoy the movie, it was fun and had some impressive visuals. I also really loved the Big Evil Enterprise, especially when it caught up to them in subspace.
Now, I think it’s actually a good idea to have someone directing these movies who, by his own admission, doesnt know shit about Star Trek, because someone who’s not obsessed with the deep lore of the series is probably better suited to bring it to a mass audience. Which makes it so weird, then, that Abrams spent the whole movie trying to emulate Wrath of Khan, right down to identities and key scenes which is just a blatant pandering to fanboys who will never, ever be satisfied and will go over the heads of most casual fans. The KHAAAAAN moment elicited barely a reaction from the theater I was in, which is a combined result of most people not *getting* the importance of it and the fact that it made no goddamn sense in the context of this movie (Khan didnt kill Kirk, after all, it was the more result of Wallace’s machinations than anything else) and the fact that Quinto’s delivery of the line just plain sucked.
So my main problem with the movie is: if you’re going to try and forge a brave new path with the Star Trek series, then FORGE A BRAVE NEW PATH, dont rehash old plots, no matter how good they were originally.
