Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country(1991)

Weird movie.
Seemed like they were almost trying to be funny with how stupid they made it at times.

Honestly, it seemed more like a quest to setup bad lines and silly things (like Klingons reading poetry) than a real story. And not only was everyone quoting Shakespeare, but the political speeches were even moreso flamboyant.
There was also a lot of awkwardness and unrealistic lines due to the end of the series, like "So this is goodbye" and such, that just didn't fit. The movie felt overacted by almost every single person. And did they really have to setup a Kirk vs Kirk scene?
Of course they did. It was the over-the-top, end-of-the-line movie.

Still, it had a basically interesting storyline. So I can certainly enjoy it a fair bit as just a Star Trek movie centered on scifi and action, the usual keys to the series.
