Tuesday, June 9, 2009. Twenty years ago today, the movie Star Trek V: the Final Frontier was released. I share a few facts about the fifth of the Trek movies, and relate my experience of watching it for the first (and almost last) time. I don't remember seeing the poster design depicted here back in the day, but I couldn't resist showing it now, because my answer to the question it poses would most likely be, "To keep the audience from getting up and walking out."
I also refer to a version of the movie given the "Mystery Science Theater 3000" treatment. This isn't the RiffTrax commentary, but rather a fan film with a Joel, robots and everything, including one unforgettable song, by Seattle filmmaker Ryan K. Johnson. More information can be found on Ryan's website.
