Today we are going to talk about Star Trek The motion Picture, it is a movie that is older than me! I have to say, the first time I watched something from Star Trek was not a good “First Contact”. When I watched this movie for the first time I fell asleep. I think that it was “siesta time” had something to do with it too.
I think that if you haven’t watched anything from Star Trek and you watch this movie now it will be a bit difficult. This year I became a Star Trek fan, before I was only a Star wars fan, I watched all Star Trek series and all the movies and I loved it. I gave this movie another chance and I think it is a great movie for Star Trek fans only. They spent a lot of time showing the Enterprise: close-up shot to Kirk, shot to the Enterprise, Kirk, Enterprise,… I think here is where I fell asleep the first time because after that I couldn’t remember anything else more.
Overall I really enjoyed it, I think the story was interesting and I enjoyed watching Enterprise details. I want to make some funny comments that called my attention without giving any spoilers.
So the film starts with an energy cloud killing people, Kirk was inspecting the Enterprise, which was commanded by another Captain, and they had to take this problem and solve it immediately. The problem is, Kirk wants to be the Captain, so all the drama started. Usually Kirk is in the middle of all the drama and all the romantic topics but in this case the romantic topic came with another person. They introduce a bald woman who, in one of her first conversations, pointed out she was celibate. In that moment we all knew that was going to be our romantic part of the film.
At last but not least, the beauty contest from this movie:
- In Third place: First images of Spock with a astonishing wig, like Prince Valiant.
- In Second place: Scotty with the black Renaissance ruffle collar, he is one step ahead in technological fashion.
- In First place: We can’t ignore Bones, he transported right after his rehearsal with the Bee Gees. And after a transporter malfunction.
Jokes aside, I enjoyed this movie and I would really recommend it if you are a Star Trek: TOS fan.
Live long and prosper!
