“STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS,” directed by J.J.

    Two shitty movies for the price of one!

    I guess that’s sort of a bargain?

    I’d recommend saving one’s money though, and maybe seeing The World’s End or Blue Jasmine instead. Either one’s a better choice.

    I still haven’t seen Elysium, so perhaps I’ll see that this weekend.

    Cool, I missed both!!!! Last time I saw a double feature was The Man Who Knew To Little and Hercules!

    Wow, can’t wait to not be able to see this in Canada!

    Regardless of the fact that World War Z had zombies (it is debatable if they could actually be classified as zombies in the first place), it was not a zombie movie. For the script they could have literally replaced the zombies giant mutant naked mole rats and film would be exactly the same. I would not call it a zombie movie, just another generic disaster / creature feature….but with Brad Pitt.

    no.

    Why see two of the shittiest movies this summer?

    JJ abrahms abysmal remake sequel was really bad, the ‘khan!!’ scene was REALLY BAD! and the rest of the movie is bad too.

      Oh, nath, you are everywhere.
      So happy to see you again.
      You have a Star Trek fixation?
      Abrams changed his name to Abrahms?
      So there is a Khan scene in the movie? There is only one?

      Jesus, help him!
