143 - Decker's Vacated Quarters
Are They Really That Bad? - Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
It's the 40th anniversary of Star Trek's first movie - and there are mixed feelings. Franchise fans are glad that TMP led to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, eventually creating many movies and television series. However, TMP is also the infamous "Motionless Picture." But, is it really that bad? The trio rewatch this 1979 feature film and look at the characters of Captain Decker, potential Badmiral Kirk, a civilian Spock who seems similar to his Star Trek: Discovery counterpart, and everyone's favorite Disco Bones. Do the special effects really take away from the story? Is there an actual story to tell that can fill a movie? And does the enjoyment of the movie depend on how you watch it? Let us know your opinion of TMP and whether it's really that bad.
