Finally. Some fans with an actual sense of humor.

I have to say that I love the wig of Kirk in this video … is comparable only with the wig of Chris Pine in the film Bottle Shock … LOL … the soundtrack is also fantastic … the guy who plays Kirk, looks like a young Benicio Del Toro … this is really fun!

One of the most creative and funny video I have seen in a long time. Well done!

Does anyone think that the guy as kirk in homemade trailer looks like benicio Del toro in first shot of him?


Awesome :)

Very funny and well done!

That was classic !!

Kirk with a blonde wig and black eye brows…LOL

I totally cracked up at the end when “Harrison” does his speech about what you would do for your family…LOL

Jejejeje Funy and great Job !!!!

These rock. Watched the side-by-side. They got the timing down perfectly. Gotta love fan films!

That was funny, very clever.


I especially like those innovative non-special effects, like the simple but clever trick of how to make the action figures fold the Federation flag, or the LED lights producing Abrams’ trademark lens flares!

Why did I enjoy that? But I did. It was awesome and it made me laugh. I especially appreciate the dramatic music score ” Draaaaaaaaaaaaaaggggggh! ” Ha. Awesome. Later maybe we could talk about the fact that this is actually a pretty good storyboard for this promo. This friends, is the fundamentals of how it’s done…

Very funny.

I liked the amateur special effect for the missing man flyover!

I laugh every time I see this. Why?

The Wauuuuuggghhhhh voices doing the “music”



Cool voice!


J.J.’s credit card includes lens flare!

Good job!
