Re: Just watched Star Trek V - pros and cons
I like Star Trek V. It's no masterpiece, but I think it's fun in a TV-movie kind of way (disclaimer: I think Nemesis is great, too)
About the effects: Sha'Ka'Ree looked great from space. I didn't think the rest were too bad. A little weaker than normal, admittedly but hardly the worst ever.
STV was also the first Star Trek film I ever saw. As a kid I loved the horseriding phaser attack on Paradise City.
I must admit Spockhura works a billion trillion times better than Scottyhura. What were they thinking?
Well Nemesis is light years better....STV is just awful...nothing redeeming about it.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
