Re: Unpopular Trek Opinions What Are Yours?

ST5: The final frontier is a lot more enjoyable to me and thus a much better movie than either ST1: The Slowmotion Picture, STVI: The Klingon Shakespeare parable and all of the TNG movies aside from First Contact.

STVI: The Undiscovered Country is without a doubt a vastly overrated film with a ton of plot holes, that is not just horribly dated, but even performs a major character assassination on the big three: Kirk and McCoy are turned into bigots, McCoy is drunk on his job and ends up killing his patient, and Spock performing a forced mind meld on Valeris, which is the vulcan equivalent of a rape.

I can't really see any redeeming value in this movie. Aside from klingons quoting shakespeare and the outdated cold war references, what really kills this movie for me is the lack of good Kirk/Spock/McCoy interaction that we found in the previous installments.
