Star Trek: The Motion Picture [D+]

My dislike for the first Star Trek movie only grew as a I made it through the film for yet another time. The costume design, the cinematography, the production design, the editing, the screenwriting, most of the acting, and half the visual effects are downright terrible. A great musical score, DeForest Kelley's small role but excellent performance, and the few visual effects which manage to stand up to the standards of the day don't save this one. And what's with all the talk about this movie being about "exploring?" It's about Kirk and crew going to save the Earth from destruction against an alien enemy. It takes more than 90 minutes before there's any more depth than that.
