Reassessing Star Trek: The Motion Picture

I watched Star Trek: The Motion Picture again. This time I watched the DVD, which contains the movie as completed by the director. For those who don’t know, it was one of those movie projects from hell. It started off as a TV series pilot episode, went through half a dozen scripts, was turned into a movie, was turned back into a TV series, then got sold as a movie and had to be completed in an unfeasibly short amount of time.

Minority Report

Was supposed to be going out on a boat last night, but there were storm warnings so the skipper cancelled. Mark called, and I ended up meeting him and sara downtown and going to see Minority Report. As a huge Philip K. Dick fan, I had to see it. I’d gathered that it was good from the reviews, but I wasn’t expecting too much. In the end, though, it’s probably one of the best movie adaptations of a Phil Dick story.
