Re: Just watched Star Trek V The Final Frontier

TFF aspired to be more than your normal summer blockbuster. It may have been too broad for some people, but for your normal popcorn munching audience it introduced some weighty ideas. I respect that. Shatner could have done a normal space shoot-em-up if he wanted, but he knew Trek was more than that and he wanted to go deeper. Does the movie have problems? No doubt. Does it introduce big ideas and have the best character moments of any Trek film? No doubt.
