Symptom 35: In Defense Of Star Trek: The Motion Picture

So RageMaster and Corey are out again this week, which means I continue reviewing the so called bad Star Trek odd numbered Star Trek movies. This week it is Star Trek: The Motion Picture. This movie is roundly hated by most for being slow and lacking action. They are not wrong that movie is slow and lacking action, they are wrong that the pacing and dialogue driven story makes it a bad movie. 

The story is essential for the character of Spock and has a simple message that attempts to answer to question humanity has been asking for all of time - what is the meaning of life. 

I challenge you to listen to Symptom 35 and then rematch The Motion Picture, its not as bad as you might remember.
