Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979, dir. Robert Wise)

The newly-refitted Enterprise answers a call from space. The first film adventure in the cycle has an intriguing conceit, but struggles to balance 2001-style spectacle and grandeur with post-Star Wars popcorn thrills. A slow misfire, but not without its moments.
