In reviewing the dailies of the first two days of shooting, the production realized that a pine tree in the frame during Kirk and Spock's mountain dialogue ruined the illusion of height, while a shot of Shatner clinging to the face of El Capitan appeared muddy due to clouds obscuring the sun and ruining the depth of field. The scenes had to be reshot later See more »

I thought weapons were forbidden on this planet. Besides, I can't believe you'd kill me for a field of empty holes.
It's all I have.

I have to admit I love this movie. My stepfather said he saw it in theaters and it left him baffled; he later told me that he was convinced at the time that Shatner should never direct a film again. I watched it with him for what was his second time and my first; how anyone could HATE this movie is beyond me. Even my stepfather admitted to liking it better the second time around.
To me, it has some of the best banter and dialogue of all the original six. I especially like the part in the beginning where McCoy and Kirk try to teach Spock "Row Row Row Your Boat". Seeing Spock try to get back in touch with his human side is hilarious. This movie has more, I guess, humanity in it, for lack of a better word. I think the more vulnerable, imperfect sides of the main cast come out better in this movie.
Maybe it's not the best movie in the world. But to me the plot made more sense than the last two movies, even if I had to know SOMEthing about it so I wouldn't have set my expectations so high when I watched it for myself.
Perhaps you need a word or two on it before you see it, and depending on your religious views (conservative Christian speaking here), you may or may not tolerate this movie. I loved it, and even though it easily ranks among my favorites of all time, I can't say for sure that others will appreciate this movie very much.
Just for the record, I'm on a mission to watch all the main Star Trek media. Finished TOS recently, skipped TAS (for the time being), went through the movies, and have recently started TNG (which I love already). So I'm still a Trekkie-in-training. :D
