    Star Trek: The Motion Picture

    ★★★

    There are several moments/shots in this movie that seem dialed up to make fans of TOS ruin their denim, but, having never seen even one second of that, I can't tell if it's overly fan service-y or not. I will say that I was expecting this to try to compete more with Star Wars in terms of its adventure elements, but this is much headier and slow-moving than that. Even though the effects and tech have aged questionably, there are still some neat visuals and enough intrigue, at least initially, to make it a fine watch.

    Certainly not without its issues, but if you let it charm you, it very easily does.

    With a story that good, characters that charming, and chemistry that compelling, Joe didn't need to go that hard with the visuals, but we're all fortunate he did. Calling my mom now to tell her she's wrong about the Colin Firth version
