    Star Trek: Generations


    It just hit me for the first time exactly why and by how much Generation misses the mark- very nearly making it the worst Star Trek movie, in my opinion.

    It doesn't know what the fuck to do with Kirk and Picard.

Residue might be the first movie that I'll agree is flawed, and wholly imperfect, but... I wouldn't know what to change because I absolutely enjoyed it just the way…
