LeVar Burton “conflicted” over new Star Trek film; says it “needs Gene”

Love them or hate them, but TMZ sometimes gets a good story that has nothing to do with drunk driving or overdoses. They recently met up with LeVar Burton who was asked about his views on the new Star Trek film. His response:

At the end of the movie I really care about what happens to the characters, but I’m pretty much missing Gene Roddenberry in J.J.’s interpretation. And at the end of the day, that’s just not OK for me.

An interesting interpretation of the film. While I personally liked it and felt it was a logical extension of the last film, it is missing Gene’s vision. However, movies can’t always reflect visions like that. Movies are made for the big screen, for large audiences. Is it OK to put the vision aside for the films and keep the vision on TV? Let us know.
