Default Would a JJ's version of Trek I-III be too much to ask?

Some people told me the new movie doesn't stack up to the first three movies.

Well, I like the first three movies. I really do. But, as someone in his mid twenties, the pace is too agonizingly slow; it puts me to sleep.

However, the pace of the new movie was fantastic! One big happy roller coaster.

I'd like to think that, someday, there'll be a combined Star Trek I, II & III majorly edited so it has the speed of modern movies. I mean, combine the three films and you still end up with 120 minutes worth of material.

I think it would be awesome.

Do you think it would be too much to ask?

Yes it would be too much. JJ needs to make his own signature, not rewrite Gene Roddenberry, Robert Wise, Nick Meyer, and Harve Bennett. Just because modern audiences are more impatient does not mean redoing Casablanca is in order Or redoing Rooster Cogburn. He has a fresh canvas and should paint his own.

It simply is not going to happen. Although, I do hope the sequels have at least some relationship to at least a couple of the events that took place in TOS, or that some of them are at the very least alluded to.

I hope Abramsdisaster doesn't make any more Star Trek. Destroying Star Trek once was more than enough.

And thats my Opinion

He only had to destroy it in this one, the rest is smooth sailing.

Maybe while he's at it he could rewrite some of Shakespeare's longer plays. Those might not have a modern enough pace to keep you awake.

None of the previous films are going to get remade. We are in a new universe and it will have broadly new stories in it.

If you can call JJ Abrams "Abramsdisaster" can I call you "Maggot" rather then "Magnum"?
