If my reward for living through nine months of this fucked up horrorscape of a year was I'm Thinking of Ending Things, I'll take it.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This was the only Star Trek movie from the original series that I saw as a kid. It left an impression on me and I remember it fondly and watching it today reaffirmed that fondness. Everything seemed to be clicking in this movie between the cast, the direction, the story and its execution. The first 15 minutes of the Enterprise crew in present day San Francisco is some of the best fish-out-of-water stuff you'll find in a movie anywhere.
So, The Neverending Story, the first one, that was a fantastic piece of childhood nostalgia. When I read the book years later, I was sad that only half of the book ended up in the movie, especially since there's some awesome stuff in the second half of the book. Well, some of that second half ended up in this movie and I was even sadder.
