I’ve been at college for almost three weeks now and I’ve learned that the single best way to make friends is to just talk about Pokemon. Literally everyone likes Pokemon and there’s a new one out in less than a month so everyone’s pumped about it. Last night I talked about Pokemon with this guy I’d never met in my life for like 20 minutes and we both walked away having made a new friend. That’s beautiful. Pokemon really is the key to a happy and peaceful society and I believe it can unite the world
What I really believe we should do now is strive for originality. Because in Star Trek Into Darkness we took one of the most revered and loved adversaries of the Enterprise and put him in there, and did a story that had all of these wonderful nods to films from the past, and episodes from the past. I really think that what we should do from here, in my personal opinion, is strive to be original. Strive to be something different and new. You know, let’s not forget that Star Trek as envisioned was about space exploration. And it would be really wonderful to harness the spirit of that and apply it to the next film, so that we do something different than a revenge-based picture.
