Star Trek V.

Howdy!

I am now watching Star Trek V, in my opinion the worst movie of the whole series, or a close second to Nemesis. William Shatner directed this turkey, a turkey as big as old Scotty's gut.

Star Trek V is so bad on so many levels. The only good part of this film is when Kirk, Bones and Spock are out camping together. That's it.

However, the storyline was awful. Makeup and wardrobe was pitiful. For example, the Klingon skulls looks rubbery. The female Romulan ambassador on Nimbus III was such an awful actress who did not act anything like a Vulcan could act. She did not at all fit any other type of Romulan, from her hair, her clothes or her demeanor. The Uhura fan dance, the horses on Nimbus III. Attack of the three breasted cat-woman.

Sybok, what can I say? In the alternate Universe, someone needs to ask about Sybok and be told that he had a piano dropped on his head. I hate to admit it, but I loved the Klingons, because they were so stupid. The captain had the huge metal-band like hair.

Chinese Romulans, rubber faced Klingons, Grandma Uhura shaking her moneymaker, and Kirk, Bones and Spock acting all gay with each other.

Nemesis is the Star Trek V of the TNG series of films. Nemesis was so bad that Patrick Stewart was embarrassed of it. I would like to see it again, but remember being disappointed with it watching it the first time.

Your loss. I love the movie and can find a lot of wonderful moments to enjoy.

Re: Star Trek V.

You started an entire thread just to bash Star Trek V?

Anyway, I disagree with everything you said. I like Star Trek V, always have and always will.

Re: Star Trek V.

I like this movie, but less for what it is and more for what it could be - I've always considered it something of a near-miss. It has loads of potential, and lots of good moments, especially for Kirk, Spock and McCoy. But it's bogged down by some really awful humor, insufficient effects work and a weak climax. The story behind the making of this film is fascinating, with all kinds of budgetary issues, an inexperienced director, studio interference and even wardrobe thefts.

I wouldn't say it was an awful movie. But it wasn't a great one either. It had the potential to be a great trek movie.

Re: Star Trek V.

Brotherly love is gay?

These men have no families beyond each other. I see nothing 'gay' whatsoever about it.

Star Trek V really gets an unfair reputation and I'd daresay people who get off on bashing it are 'gay' in the same meaning as you seem to lend it.

Mr. Scott, I'm only accepting this review at face value from you because at some point, you hit your head on a beam and apparently injured yourself.

Suffice to say, I disagree with nearly every statement you make (geez, everybody thinks the rom ambassador is awful), and I love STAR TREK V, warts & all.

Quite possibly one of the best thread replies I've ever read.

I've not seen Star Trek V for a very long time. It'll probably be the first one I watch when my DVD box set arrives. From what I've read, it has some interesting concepts, and the score is lovely.

Re: Star Trek V.

I will agree with the point that Star Trek V is a flawed film, that could have been better had some decisions been made differently with the production. Those issues have been discussed in a couple dozen other threads, so take your pick.
That said, I personally liked it, flaws and all.
I also found it an extremely relevant film socially, in how it deals with such issues as the dangers of blindly following a religion - or other leader, and what happens when one can be so blinded by his own ambition, to the exclusion of all else. (A theme that was later handled, but overlooked by many in Generations.)
