VOTD: My Favorite Movie (Star Trek vs. Star Wars)

Star Wars vs. Star Trek

My favorite sci-fi movie of all time if the one that starts with a small ship being attacked a larger ship…

You know, Star Wars

I mean… Star Trek.

Did you notice all the similarities between George Lucas’ Star Wars: A New Hope and JJ Abrams’ Star Trek? You must watch the College Humor video after the jump.

Spoiler Warning: if you havent seen the new Star Trek movie yet, you might not want to watch the video!

Of course, this isn’t very surprising. If you know anything about screenwriting or storytelling, than you know about Joseph Campbell’s Heroes Journey, the mythic structure that has been utilized in many many Hollywood films. Someone once created a similar comparison between Star Wars and Harry Potter, which shows the underlying structure of Campbell’s teachings.
