Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

A pretty clever Cold War allegory, from Nicholas Meyer, the director of Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan. I love watching starships pummeling the hell out of each other, what a treat.
Kim Cattrall has one of those faces which looks just right as a Vulcan- not everyone can put on those ears and make it work. I also appreciated the little touches which featured the real life of the crew- they sleep in bunkbeds, they have closets for their clothes, there's a kitchen to prepare food. The TV show featured a dining room with a sliding panel where you retrieved your food, like a 23rd century automat.
This was the opening night at the old giant theater on Cambridge Street in Boston, near MGH. Huge crowd!
