Faldor returns to take the place of the Doctor from Speakeasy on a final(?) Star Trek commentary. We examine the film as a treatise on Shakespeare and Sherlock Holmes (and international politics and racism, whatever) and speculate on Kim Catrall’s allure.
We discuss some background on how the budget constrained Nick Meyer’s production values and how he nevertheless prevailed mightily. We like this adventure a lot, roast turkey, purple blood, and all.
I’m watching the Blu-ray theatrical cut. Faldor is watching the PAL DVD director’s cut. We try to keep clear on where we are. Start the movie after the Paramount logo, on the countdown.
