Yeah, I can see how gettin' dumped by a Trekkie could make you bitter.




Oh Woofmutt...what would these forums be without you?

As I was standing in line with the three people I had convinced to actually GET in line for the new Star Trek movie, I realized that the line had wandered around a bit and was putting us right at the entrance for the Hannah Montana movie. The movie was in progress, and somebody had left the door open.

What the heck? I walked in to see what all the fuss was about. Comparing and contrasting Hannah to Star Trek.

So the thing with this Hannah movie is, it’s REALLY bad. So off the map, down in the gutter, washed into the sewer bad that only people with 3 year old mentalities could survive it without permanent mental damage. They seem to be made by cocaine-pumped Hollywood dropouts who really don’t care about reality or at least have an ongoing distaste for it.

Even the soundtrack is bad. Not the songs, which were terrible, just the mating of sound to image was off a lot. And the camera doesn’t seem to know what to do with Ms. Cyrus. Is she outraged? Is she happy? Sad? We never quite know. The camera cuts back and forth to her for no reason, at times when she doesn’t really have a lot to do with the plots swirling around her. Its all very confusing.

I looked at the audience. They seemed to be embarrassed to be there, the median age was about 19. Jeez, shouldn’t these kids be on drugs, annoying their parents and hanging out at the beach on a Saturday afternoon? What’s wrong with them? Where is their STYLE?

Why are they here?

The theme of Hannah Montana seems to be that Hannah rules the universe. That’s the attraction. She lifts her finger, or looks a tiny little bit … dissatisfied… and adults run around yelling at each other, asking Hannah what’s wrong. It’s great to be Hannah. She’s incredibly rich, the center of the world’s attention, she lives on this, oh crap, go see the movie if you’re that into it. I ain’t.

What’s interesting is how totally opposite this all is to real life for a pop star. Teeny pop stars have to do EVERYTHING the studio says, when the execs say it and how. They have no personal life, they are not allowed to have fun and most of the time they sit in makeup chairs (Hannah had a lot of pancake on, like about ½” thick on her cheeks, even when relaxing around the campfire) being told how ugly they are and how makeup will save them from a life of drudgery. God help us when this generation hits the streets.

Finally, I didn’t find Miley Cyrus all that cute. She squints a lot. Her chin is kind of strange looking, it looks like she got in some fights in grade 6. She can’t dance. And her singing is pretty thin. She seems to sit around a lot, brushing her hair, looking like she doesn't know the camera is rolling.

What the…?

I gotta agree about the Hannah Montana movie. And it's especially unfortunate as the TV show is so exceptionally good.

The acting on the show is surprisingly accomplished for such young people and Billy Ray is amazing. The music is generally always good and well crafted.

The plotting and the characterization is far better than one finds on most adult shows. Also I have found that a layer of crunchy peanut butter in my shoes gives me a lively step and makes my feet smell Georgia farm fresh.

I think Mylie's switch back and forth between the ordinary high school girl and Hannah is really something else, even without the blond wig you'd really see her as two different characters.

I'm glad to find there are other Hannah fans here on TC, and for those of you who have just dismissed it out of hand give it a look. And I recommend Skippy Extra Crunchy for the shoe thing.

Cammo derailed his own thread.

When GROG niece was young, and GROG was visiting GROG' sisters house and GROG' niece was watching Hannah Montana Grog watch the show with her. GROG was surprised with the show. GROG agree with Woofy, it was pretty good for a kids show. Miley Cyrus' comic acting remind GROG of Lucy, Carol Burnette, and Jenna Elfaman. Not as funny as them, but you could see she was inspired by them. It still not make GROG want to go see Hannah Montana movie. But GROG plan on seeing Star Trek today. ROTTEN TOMATOES gave it a 96 on the tomato meter.

(Cammo, notice how GROG steer GROG' post back to Star Trek which was the original topic of this thread.)

Not directly tiki but indirectly inspired by idealized imagery of indigenous inhabitants of Oceanic Islands.

Star Trek Original Series: Episodes - The Apple

The costumes are somewhat SouthSeaIslandish. And it looks like they live in grass huts.






Yes, I know... there was no South Sea Island village that had David Soul in a puffy blond wig and bad spray on tan.

Cammo glad GROG gonna go see Star Trek in IMAX. Cammo see Star Trek in IMAX too and he like it. He give it five coconuts.

Three pieces of advice to GROG:

1. Do not go to bathroom in middle of movie. Do anything, go to bathroom in aisle if you have to but do NOT leave theater in middle of Star Trek movie. You will miss big exposions or something.

2. If theater is really crowded, go early and save the empty seat beside you. Tell people, "No, this seat TAKEN." and glare at them. Then when it ten minutes to showtime, pretty girl with BIG boxes of greasy popcorn clutched to chest come looking for a seat. Tell her "This seat open." Then - close the deal.

3. Count how many times Kirk punches things. It fun.

I never visit the local film house with at least two flasks.... so every movie invariably becomes a drinking game.

We started the game with DRINK every time Kirk punches things. But then decided it was more fun to DRINK every time someone grabs Kirk by the throat and tries to strangle him.

Luckily I had a spare flask hidden in my hat, we needed it after we changed the rules!

As an aside..... was Leonard Nimoy in soft focus? I mean a little TOO soft? Like the almost full-on blur when they would show closeups of Yeoman Rand in the original shows.........

Soft focus or not that Nimoy guy looks REALLY strange in the movie! They make his ears just as wrinkley as his neck, and it freakin' creeped me out. What would he have looked like in macro focus and harsh lighting?!

GROG -

4. Shut your eyes when Nimoy comes on screen!

The Star Trek / Tiki connection has also been pondered in Tiki Music --

Also, my Tiki Hut definitely has a Hor'gahn (which sees a good deal of action), and, Woofmutt is at least correct about the Green Women. Oooo.

Glad to see a new generation carrying the torch...

Live Long and Prosper, TC Lifeforms!
