Frontier Finalised

It had to happen. I watched Star Trek V: The Final Frontier last night. It’s wrongly maligned, and much better than people give it credit for. I think the story was ahead of its time, and Shatner gives a powerhouse performance in it.

James Doohan does a rather elegant pratfall too.

What lets the film down is the visual effects. The producers said that ILM were too busy to work on it, but I suspect there was some misguided cost-cutting going on here. The ships are badly lit for one, and some effects look half-finished.
