No Word if He'll Sing "Rocket Man" on the Soundtrack: Shatner Presents Documentary of "Star Trek" Fans Called Get a Life

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | July 11, 2012 | Comments ()


Here's the trailer:

William Shatner is a fantastic grumpy old man, but this seems to cover very little new ground. Actually, the only new ground it seems to cover is having Shatner add sarcastic commentary to the usual bits about how unique "Star Trek" was, etc. Of course, that might get old after two hours. If it does, maybe they'll just have Shatner sit down with Wil Wheaton for a conversation.

They're clearing setting up the film as Shatner posing a question and then being followed around by cameras as he searches for the answer and contemplates what he hears. This isn't just narration though, it has such a specific form that it needs a specific name, and I believe that this should be referred to as "Spurlocking." I know that Spurlock hardly invented the form, but he does it well enough to justify it being named after him. Plus, "Spurlocking" sounds like something that might be illegal in the south, so it's got that going for it.
