    I saw Star Trek II and III in the theater when they came out. I was in my teens. I was shocked when Spock died, but I wept when the Enterprise died. The destruction of the Enterprise in this movie was at the same time absolutely necessary and utterly unforgivable. It’s like having to commit the horror of killing your spouse to stop them from killing your mother.
    I was also disappointed with the severe nature of Star Fleet in STIII.
    I was also uncomfortable with the difference of cinematography between the two movies; for lack of a better description, STII seemed to have been filmed in warm light, while STIII seemed to have been filmed in harsh blue of fluorescent or LED light.
    But despite any complaints about this movie, James Horner’s soundtrack has to be hailed as a masterpiece.

  • I don’t love this film, but let’s take a moment to appreciate the Galadriel-esque gowns on the Vulcan priestesses. Costumes, particularly women’s costumes went the wayside in the movies (we must partly forgive them for it being the 80s) and since the nicest thing we’ve seen on a female actor to this point is a glorified bathrobe, these were such an elegant breath of fresh air, and harkened back to the ritual costumes in Amok Time.

    Your insight, that Harve Bennett essentially started at the end and worked his way backwards, now makes perfect sense, because for the longest time I found this the most contrived story of all the oriignal films. The entire situation, from the bad treatment of the Enterprise and the condescendnig attitude of practically everyone else in Starfleet, to the unreasonableness, was a blatant play for audience reaction that you wouldn’t see again until the Abramsverse. And I never got how Kirk and Sarek went from first wanting to have Mccoy taken to Vulcan to have Spock’s katra removed, to wanting to go to the Genesis planet? As far as I remembered, no one outside of the Grissom crew knew Spock’s body had regenerated.

    Ah, hell. I can’t help but love it anyway. My first date was to see it; the movie theatre showed The Motion Picture and The Wrath of Khan beforehand.

      It feels to me as if there’s a scene cut between Sarek and Kirk about going to get Spock’s body, or it is simply Kirk wanting to honor his friend by giving him a proper burial.
