“The Worf Of Starfleet” Gives Scorsese The Klingon Treatment
I was pretty entertained by Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” but the movie was too long and lacking in any real depth, if you ask me. Jordan Belfort (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) is a crazy, thieving, drug-doing, ethically bankrupt asshole, and not much more, so around the hour and a half mark, I started to get bored of his antics. But what if the movie was about a Klingon-born, Earth-raised Starfleet officer, and the wildly unpredictable situations he finds himself in during his travels through space? Yes, “The Worf of Starfleet” sounds like a movie that actually deserves a shot at Oscar. Just check out the trailer, which syncs up quite perfectly with the one for “The Wolf of Wall Street.” As far as I’m concerned, Worf — a character from “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Deep Space Nine” — is a much more interesting anti-hero than Belfort and I bet he could drink him under the table — no one parties harder than a Klingon. Get Michael Dorn on the phone — make this happen, Hollywood!
