'The Official Secrets Act revealed his true heroism'
Orci & Kurtzman, probably (via maketreknotwar)
Whenever I see people dissing the sci-fi stuff or the plot etc. in the reboot, I think of how nice it would be if all of the naysayers had actually watched Star Trek once in their lives, instead of dissing the reboot without ever having seen the original. (And maybe then they would have gotten also Trek’s message of acceptance and friendliness…!)
Because, it seems to me that no one sane and honest could possibly have watched the original and yet be dissing the sci-fi/plot/etc. in the reboot… What, do they pretend the original made any more sense?
To them, I have one thing to say: “We need some whales so let’s just fly really fast around the sun and go back in time!”
And let’s not even get started on Assignment Earth or other wtf episodes of TOS.
I adore TOS from the depths of my heart, but there were plot holes in it (and in TNG, and so on) large enough to fly a starship through them… Loving Trek as a whole doesn’t make me suddenly blind to its issues, nor do I have a need to pretend that there were no issues at all in the classics. So I also don’t have a need to apply double standards and make up stuff to diss the latest incarnation of it just because it’s new…
Star Trek is Star Trek.
Rather than dissing whichever is the newest Trek incarnation (something that sadly parts of the fandom have been doing ever since there was more than one Trek series, when some of the TOS fans tried to get TNG cancelled etc.; it’s the same with whichever is the latest, there’s always haters dissing and trying to destroy the Trek others like), if people spent more time enjoying whichever incarnation of it is their favorite instead, we would all have a lot more fun.
@scienceofcinema is taking a poll on Cumberfan age distribution. Interesting stuff.
Due to be exiled for his crime of murder, Sherlock Holmes was called back to solve one of the largest attacks on London to date, one that was so large that the world famous Avengers had to be called in. Loki and Moriarty, two of the most feared criminals, teaming up together to take over one country at a time. It’s up to the genius detective and this team of superhero’s to stop them. Can they work as one big unit though or will Sherlock’s snide remarks and rude comments hinder the investigation and capture of Loki and Moriarty. READ MORE I CHARACTER SKETCH

Benedict discussing mo cap with Andy Serkis x
So this is the 2nd or 3rd time now that Benedict has alluded to possibly doing mocap again with Andy Serkis. And as we all know, Andy is doing the mocap for the new Star Wars movies…wouldn’t that be a clever way to get around the criticism of being in Star Trek and Star Wars - by mocapping a creature?
I noticed those references to it as well, but couldn’t figure it out. Would be awesome. Check out Andy’s knowing smile… Hmmm?
