- Star Trek 1: The Motion Picture review by AB
Hard to believe that this was made in 1979 -I remember going to see it at the cinema.
Storyline is now well-known but was very good at the time and it still raises some hairs on the back of my neck in the final scenes down in VGER's centre.
As a franchise ST was way ahead of its time and so was the film - it and Star Wars really made science fiction a genre to be recognised, with the advances then in early CGI etc.
The Director's cut that I saw from here was not as good as the version I saw in the cinema as this version reduced the early encounters by the Klingons with VGER to the detriment of the excitement.
Still - I enjoyed reminiscing back to my youth.
