Star Trek: Generations

Classic Trek is good fun, and The Next Generation can be heady stuff, but Star Trek: Generations demonstrates that they are not two great tastes that taste great together. When the "Next Generation" crew find themselves pitted against baddie Malcolm McDowell, Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) locates the missing Capt. James T. Kirk (William Shatner) to gain his experience and help. Normally I enjoy Shatner's campy proscenium-humping, but when he has to share the screen with a trained thespian like Stewart, I wince and just want him to go back to hanging out with Spock, Bones, and Scotty. The entire film is compromised by the stamp of this one defect, and Shatner's "death scene" is laughable. Rack it up with all of those other odd-numbered Trek movies.
