A link to this was posted a few days ago. I think it makes the comparision pretty well. Could the "STAR WARS" undercurrent be the reason the film is so popular i wonder?

Episode III is my favorite Star Wars movie. I LOVE lightsaber fights and this movie packs in TWO great duals!! Obi-Wan -vs- Anikan AND Yoda -vs- Darth Sideous (aka: Emperor)

I think the similarities pointed out in this video are just basic sc-fi and fantasy elements. I think the guy that made the video is making a mountain out of a mole hill, and I was disappointed by this movie so I am NOT defending it out of blindness.

So now we know what happens in the sequels - Kirk finds out that Uhura is his sister and Nero is their father who's survived and turned to the dark side.

Really, you could make a similar video to prove that Star Wars or any other SF/fantasy/action film has ripped a dozen others. Or that they have all ripped off literature, fairytales, epic poetry and myths (which, for the most part, ripped off older myths). And so on...

I wouldn't be surprised if J.J. went there, seriously! Only Uhura would have to be a step-sista, Nero will turn out to be a descendent of Spock, in the future and Spock will have to be cyrogenicly frozen by the film's end.

It's sad, but i'm seriously considering going down to my videostore to rent "the Empire Strikes Back," to find out what will be in the next J.J. Trek film.
