Glenda Jackson as Spock is genius.

Thank-you for that. Sometimes I surprise even myself.

The next "Star Trek" film as directed by Ken Russell, or, "On the Good Ship 'Geriatrics.'"

Kirk (Captain) Hugh Grant. He's played alot of womanizers. He might as well play another.

Spock (Science officer) Glenda Jackson. She looks like a Vulcan. She might as well play one.

McCoy (Medicine) Amanda Donohoe. She played a nurse in one of her films. Close enough.

Scotty (Engineering) Peter Capaldi. You might as well have a Scotsman play a Scotsman.

Uhura (Communications) Catherine Oxenberg. She had her voice doubled, so everyone could understand her. She might as well be voice doubled again.

Sulu (Helm) Linzi Drew. Who cares where she goes. When she looks like that with her clothes off, we'll follow her anywhere.

Chekov (Navigation) Chris Pitt. Anybody that is naive enough to get into a car with a strange woman is naive enough for the part.

Oliver Reed as Spock.
Twiggy as Lt. Uhuru.

Who plays Kirk?  Scotty?  The chief Klingon?

Lets get Spielberg to produce Ken doing Klingons in Love or The Lair of the Quiet Klingon

If Ken had directed the latest "Star Trek" film. It'd be interesting to see him direct a film so heavily laden with CGI/SFX, as he's never directed such a film before.

What we would have seen was a carefully crafted film. Which is more than I can say for the latest "Star Trek."

Who is that walking by the side of the road in that one scene. That was supposedly Sam Kirk. For which we get no explanation. Apparently, there was an explanation as to who the character was, but it was left on the cutting room floor. That is careless editing. You won't find that in Ken's films.

Who is young Kirk talking to, or who is talking to young Kirk, in that one scene. Apparently, that was young Kirk's stepfather. For which I don't remember any explanation. Even though the explanation could have been as simple as writing: "This is your stepfather, young man." That is careless writing. You won't find that in Ken's films.

No, the more you compare Ken's films to today's films, the better Ken's films look. And the more you contrast today's films with Ken's films, the worst today's films look.
