The social network for Star Trek Fans!
What do you think of the secrecy that is over the sequel do you think it's good or bad that we the fans should or shouldn't know about what is going to happen in the Trek 12.?
Personally, I think it ruins the whole feel of the movie to have it spoiled for me with all the gossip and "leaks" that go on.
And frankly, it takes away from the people who would actually go to see the movie. People make their minds up from seeing or hearing about the leaks and spoilers floating around out there, without giving the movie their full attention and then basing thier comments on the actual movie and not the little "bits and pieces" they heard or saw before the movie came out.
I like to be surprised. Even if I hear or see bits and pieces before the movie, I dont let it affect my judgement as a fan...because I know that those bits and pieces can be taken out of context, or end up being cut from the film. I prefer the element of shock and surprise when I go see a movie, especially ones that have been part of my life.
Hell, I dont even like the movie trailers they make now. Its pretty much the whole freeking movie in one minute! I prefer to have trailers tease and taunt me.....leaving me with questions like "who was that"?, "did I see what I thought I saw"?, what was that"?, "no, they COULDNT have done THAT"! I would prefer not having trailers at all, if I were in the movie industry. I would want people judging my movies by content, not by spoilers, leaks, and trailers.
If I were a movie maker, I would work like the government....put out fake and false information to cover up what Im doing.
I would want my public and fans to be surprised.
Well, we've kinda/sorta discussed this in another thread. JJ Abrams is very secretive; always has been, always will be. As to fans knowing ahead-of-time what's going to happen, would that really make going to the movies any fun? Spoilers can be interesting, so long as they don't spoil the entire motion picture. Personally, I love to know some of the little things -- who's new to the film, what kinds of planets will they be visiting, etc. -- but I'd rather not know the whole story.
I miss the old days of having no idea about new movies apart form possibly a trailer. I prefer going in with no preconceptions as opposed to knowing key facts beforehand.
I absolutely positively love the fact that they are not telling us everything about the movie before it comes out, and that there might be a possibility of going to the cinema and being genuinely surprised by the story that they tell.
