I'm going to have to give that some thought.
How many votes will Shatner and Baird get??
Technically, I think Shatner's style of direction was rather good, with lots of movement and energy. His talents as a director were quite accomplished bearing in mind his limited experience at the time.
I think it's easy to confuse a weaker script with directorial ability sometimes.
With TFF, I've always thought there's a great movie in there somewhere trying to get out. I think budget and script compromises hurt the film. But I also don't know how accurate a reporter of fact Shatner is...
