Post I Used To Love Star Wars

Heres My Story.

Ahem, grab popcorn folks!

Ok. So, I loved Star Wars, i went to every movie at the theatre. I didn't really care for Trek, asmany. But, my dad forced me to watch it. I sighed, not realizing what i was in for. By the end of the movie, i was upstairs playing Star Trek: Leagacy ( I watched STII) I never watched Star Wars Again. All Star Trek! One night, my dad brought home the Clone Wars. I just went to bed.And Now, i'll get to See Trek In The Theatre For The FIRST TIME EVER!! What does this have to do with the movie?? Before i watched Trek, I Thought It was Geeky Trash! But, After Watching It At Its Best, I Love It (Why Would I be on here if i didn't?)So, if kids would summon up some courage to go see it, every id will adore Trek! It won't be geeky anymore, and i'll be the coolest kid at school. ( at least thats the bright future) The dark future is that everyone will hate me and call me geeky and i'll be thrown into the trash cans. Even my best friend has almost punched me for getting excited about Trek. GO ABRAMS! SAVE ME!

hahahahaha....woooo......you know what I did when people dissed me for liking Trek? It simply confirmed my suspicion that I understood something they did not. I know, I know..its's the typical elitist Trekfan attitude right, but man if people pick on you because you are a fan of something, they obviously have some issues with their own lives, and you don't need JJ or anyone else pandering to those people.

Original assault on the Death Star, with all its faux WWII dam-busting attitude, is still more enthralling than any space battle Trek has put onscreen.

That said, Star Trek is about Kirk/Spock/McCoy more than anything else. Lifelong friendship, the human spirit, teamwork, sacrifice...real values.

They both have their appeal.

I love both Trek and Wars. Both of them are excellent entertainment. Star Wars is an old movie serial (Think Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers and the like) with a new look, and stretched out to feature length. Those old B&W sci-fi serials kept you on the edge of your seat, and always kept you wanting more. And i always leave the theater after a Star Wars movie feeling that way. I also leave the theater after a Star Trek film wanting more, but for a completely different reason. Because when I'm watching Star Wars, I'm watching an adventure. When I'm watching Star Trek, I feel like I'm part of the adventure. I always say Trek is more meaningful because if we survive long enough, there's going to be a ship like the Enterprise one of these days, and people like Kirk, Scott, McCoy, Uhura etc., people like us, flying it. Maybe we won't be there, but if we manage to keep this planet in one piece long enough, then it will happen, at least partially, because of us. I like that feeling better than trying to flip on a light switch using the force, because I'm too lazy to get up and turn it on. Bottom line: Star Wars is about somebody else's past (a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away), Star Trek is about OUR future (to boldly go where no man has gone before). It's as simple as that.

Why can't you like both?

The "war" is ridiculous.
