I've really grown to genuinely love "The Search for Spock."

    Could always watch Suburban Commando where he plays opposite of Hulk Hogan.

    As long as people are mentioning various Christopher Lloyd roles, one of his most iconic characters is definitely Reverend Jim from Taxi.



    Weirdly, The Search for Spock was the first Star Trek movie I ever saw, even though I had the option of watching WOK first, because my dad had 2, 3 and 4 on tape (he's not a Trekkie, but he taped everything). Since I was already aware of how WOK ended, I guess I was worried about that movie bumming me out, which is why I chose to start with Spock's resurrection. And yet, when I got around to Wrath of Khan, it still managed to make me cry.

    I -still- get water in my eyes when I get near the end of WoK. :)

    I had trouble seeing Kruge straight due to remembering him as Jim

    I think I've seen TWOK the best part of 200 times and it gets me every time.

    I’m a monster, I get far more upset over the Enterprise going down.

    I cried over both. Went to see TSFS with my girlfriend at the time and she made fun of me all the way home :lol:

    Every time I watch TSFS, there’s still a small part of me that thinks maybe THIS time they’ll figure a different way out.
    :lol:

    The only downside to that would be that Kirk's anguished line to Bones and the latter's response as the E disintegrates is one of the finest moments of the franchise.
