Is Sherlock Ben Laden?

Is "StarTrek into Darkness" an allegory on drones?

and why does the Khan character wear Sherlock's coat, complete with turned up collar?link

for that matter, why do they cast an obvious Anglo Saxon actor as Khan? What, no Indian actors who could play a baddie?

Yes, the original Khan was played by Ricardo Montalban, a Mexican American, but at least he had black hair in reality and played the character more flamboyantly....Cumberbach has light brown hair...

I don't know if I'll bother to see it...(the only versions in the palenke are cam videos and I usually watch the better "legal" versions when they arrive in the mall...Yes, it will be on HBO next year, but Lolo dislikes Sci Fi so I have to watch this type film on my computer)....

I watched the first movie on the plane coming back here, and wondered why they put in all the ordinary fisticuff scenes  after they "accidentally" drop their super duper phaser...

No fancy Jackie Chan foot work, no "Indiana Jones" response when confronted with a stronger bad guy, and no hidden knife or MacGuyver type weapons used, not even a knitting needle..


earth to Star Trek: put a "hello Kitty" mitten cord on your phasers, and you'll never have to worry about losing them again.
