Re: The curse of even Trek Films and the reboot - thought

I've got a theory that TMP at least suffers its "the slow motion picture" reputation because of the 'Special Longer Version' released on VHS in the 1980s. In my opinion the pacing of the theatrical cut is great -- it does build up relatively slowly, but it isn't nearly as excessive as its often made out to be, it's just taking time to tell its story -- but the SLV destroys the pacing, making it feel more like a slow dirge.
