    I DO agree with this. I think it should be updated. Would be a measurably better film for the effects upgrade alone.
    It's not how hard you hit, but how hard you can be hit and still move forward.

    Careful opening that Pandora's box, because then you'd get a CGI "Rock-Man" sequence.

    ^^^ Yeah I have seen that. We can do without those effects.

    My favorite fan theory on Trek V is that it's all a dream -- that Kirk nods off on the camping trip, dreams this insane adventure, and wakes up again around the fire with Spock and Bones at the end. There's so much weird and off in this movie (fan dancing, too many decks and they're numbered wrong, all the odd moments and gags) that I think a David Lynch-style re-edit could really turn it around and into something dense and strange and interesting . . . Trek's first really experimental story.

    The effects of way too much Saurian brandy, perhaps?
    Oh then, what's this? Big flashy lighty thing, that's what brought me here! Big flashy lighty things have got me written all over them. Not actually. But give me time. And a crayon.

    I think the all the elements are there for a good movie, but executed poorly in almost every case. The script needed one more pass, need the usual FX company, stage some scenes slightly better and you might have a good movie. The scenes with Sybock and Bones and then Kirk refusing to let Sybok take his pain away are actually pretty powerful and well done.

    The irony of your theory is uncanny. The script may agree with you. "Life is but a dream."
