Is Simon Pegg a hypocrite?

August 22nd, 2013 by bash 8 Comments

Simon Pegg recently let fans who attended the official Star Trek convention at the Rio in Las Vegas know exactly what he thinks of them.

Speaking to the Huffington Post after attendees at the convention ranked Into Darkness as the worst Trek movie ever, he said: “It absolutely isn’t the worst ‘Star Trek’ movie, it’s asinine, you know? It’s ridiculous. And frustrating. To be subject to that level of sort of, like, crass f—ing ire, I just say f— you.

“I think it’s like when you tire of an indie band that you love because, suddenly, they get a number one single. You don’t necessarily start disliking their music, but you stop liking them because you’re pissed off that they’re famous.”

Ofcourse, this is the same ‘fan’ who slagged off George Lucas and the Star Wars prequels.

A few years back while doing the rounds for the release of ‘Tintin’, he was asked what he thought of the changes the creator made to the original films as well as his thoughts on the prequels.

“I haven’t bought them to be honest because I’m only interested in the first three and I don’t want to see them all ruined,” he said.

Ruined you say Mr Pegg? Well, true Star Wars fans may have faults with the prequels but we love them just as much.

For us fans of a galaxy far, far away, we say stick to Trek!

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
