    Wow. Those Superman credits takes me back . . . to the Lewis & Clark Theater during the Christmas break of my freshmen year of college, to be exact.

    Thanks for posting that!

    From your reaction, I'm guessing that's the first time you've ever seen that?

    But I agree, I've loved that sequence since 1978.

    Star Trek: The Planet of the Titans is another one, although obviously it doesn't fit this movie.

    In the vein of something that doesn't mock the movie so much, maybe...

    Star Trek: Quest for the Creator

    Eh? Eh?

    And yeah, the Superman opening credits are indeed awesome. It's actually kind of a shame just what a lost art a good opening title sequence seems to be these days.

    You know, even though that whole "circling the Enterprise" scene is slow and, well, languid, it's still my favorite scene in the movie. The slow buildup along with Jerry Goldsmith's musical cues give it quiet sort of magic.

    Yeah, the whole scene is starship porn. At least they chose a ship worth making porn of. :lol:

    Should have just been Star Trek, but failing that I would have gone with The Final Frontier and then used something else for V.

    Nooo, it just brought back a flood of memories. I loved that they remade it for Superman Returns.

    Well, yeah, they certainly did.

    It's also neat how the movie starts out with some really epic Klingon ship porn.

    But to be honest, I even like the V'Ger cloud and craft porn, for what it is.

    A while back, after seeing West Side Story -- also directed by Robert Wise -- it struck me that it had something in common with TMP. They're both movies that are often driven by lengthy set pieces of imagery and music with no dialogue. Even a lot of the musical numbers in WSS are instrumental for long periods. So maybe Wise was approaching TMP with a similar "musical" sensibility, the mindset that it's okay to stop the story and spend several minutes showcasing beautiful music and visuals. Which, for me, works just fine in TMP.
