Just where is our future, the things we've done and said!
Let's just push the button, we'd be better off dead!
'Cause I hate you!
And I berate you!
And I can't wait to get to you!
The sins of all our fathers, being dumped on us – the sons.
The only choice we're given is how many megatons?
And I eschew you!
And I say, screw you!
And I hope you're blue, too.
We're all bloody worthless
The best of the film series featuring the original crew because it works on so many levels: embracing Roddenberry's original notion of wrapping topical notions in the cloak of sci-fi while playing the entire film as a comedy: satirical, silly & slapstick. It makes the "threat" to be resolved a MacGuffin to allow the hilarity. http://eddieonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/11/its-miracle-these-people-ever-got-out.html
Sort of stupid plot, but a nice message and hilarious dialogue and scenarios! Even though I'm a lifelong trekkie, I may get crap for saying this, but I will say it anyway: I enjoyed this so, so, so much more than Wrath of Khan.
SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN REASSEMBLED INTO JIM!!! I'M JUST SAYING!!! You can't beam two people up at the same time like that!! Apart from that huge, HUGE! Mistake, I found the movie entertaining laughing pretty hard at the situation of Chekov, hehehe and Sulu. Bones like always is my favorite character in the series and the movies, so bones fighting with the 21 century medic was hilarious for me.
I thought this was great. It felt like a feature length episode, and the hijinks the crew gets into are hilarious. I love the subplot of Spock learning to find himself, and friendship to Kirk again, it's pretty touching and raised quite a lot of questions about life, death, and the soul. It does get a little too much into the "Oh god why?!" of Whale hunting but I suppose it makes sense, it was just a bit annoying.
