Some Star Trek Trepidation by SEBASTIAN

Star Trek has been a huge force during my life. My mom has always been a huge fan, so that’s how I was initially exposed. Having said that I had missed feelings when I heard they were rebooting the original series with James T. Kirk. I love that they will show what these characters did before they came to be on their “voyage”, but can these new fresh actors really re-invent verified classic characters? Someone seems to think so because they’ve just green-lit the writers to churn out a sequel script as fast as they can.

The writers are definitely an asset to this endeavor. Robero Orci and Alex Kurtzman are very talented. I am loving their newest television project “Fringe” and I definitely enjoyed Transformers. I feel like they will bring something fresh in concept to these new projects, but shouldn’t we wait and see if the first film is a hit or a flop?

I suppose the producers have read the talkbacks on so many of the websites that promote the film and feel like it’s a surefire hit. I think it will be too, but I think they should just slow down a bit. Just relax and let this film come out. Sit back and take a break. We’ve all seen it happen; the writers get so caught up in their well-deserved success that they keep trying to crank out more as soon as they can and while they may still please some they could have benefited from some more time(Pirates anyone?).

Look at Christopher Nolan and crew. Taking a lot of time before they return to the Batman franchise. Don’t get me wrong, if they can pull off these ideas in such a short amount of time, then more power to them. The same applies to all the Marvel movies. I hope they have thought these ideas through before we get all these potentially spectacular up-coming movies.

Morgan Freeman asks Coop a question at THE BEST DAY premiere! Video below…


My short film THE BEST DAY premiered in October 2011 at the Delta Cinema in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

Little did I know I had a special guest in the audience who was about to ask me a question during the Q&A. Yep, I got a little flustered when I saw who it was.
