Plummer's General Chang was a good villain, but Lloyd's manic energy as Kruge in III tops it for me personally.

Khan's still tops for ST movie villain though. So much overacting!

And that's pretty much how to become a top Star Trek villain.  Chew the scenery harder than it chews you.  And out-emote Shatner.

"Undiscovered Country" is weak sauce. It's so half-assed. I mean, yeah, it's not *ridiculous* like "Star Trek V" was, but instead it's just dull. It just has ZERO "kick" to it. You know what it reminds me of? It reminds me of a Pierce Brosnan "Bond" film. All the pieces are there, it's *almost* cool, but it ends up feeling lazy and cheesy.

Ok yeah you might be right about that. Though I never understood why that particular purposeful-mixup-insult works as well as it does on super nerds.. I guess if your fandom is all there is to your identity......

Mrs. Hakubi and I are watching all the Star Trek series. I kinda don't get why Kirk is so well regarded. Pretty much every episode we've watched of TOS so far has Kirk trying to solve most problems by putting his penis in the alien girl. Except Kim Darby, obvs.

The only time I can see Kirk as a good captain is when he's barking orders during a battle. And even there Picard outshines him.

I guess the only people who really get insulted are those who cling onto one franchise and can't understand why anyone would ever watch the other franchise.  Strange, it is.

Q: How Christopher Plummer Became One of the Best Villains in Star Trek Movie History

A: uuh, He's fooking Christopher Plummer. Someone had the totally average idea that, mo fooking Christopher Plummer  is fooking brilliant and we'd be lucky to have his talent on this project.

And in fact the answer is given way early on as:
"I had always been a fanatic Christopher Plummer fan,"

You don't actually need to be a fan to know someone is badass at what they do.
I don 't watch sports, but clearly the people they say won the superbowl must be pretty good at that shiat.

So you notice one of the venerable masters is potentially available, and department of duh knows they can elevate your material like no one else.

So again the real answer as to how did he wind up there?
Being so badass they know your name and come asking for your talent.
There is no quirky story to, I spent a life time honing the skills to become the venerable master and they seek me out because of it.

You'd need yo go for a more, and when i was at a  low point in my drunkenness stories to say anything besides the plainly obvious on that one i think.

Plummer and Takei were both excellent in the otherwise "meh" movie. At the end of the movie, I was left disappointed those two weren't on-screen more. Plummer was awesome there because he's always awesome- no matter how cheesy the film, he always shines.

Hey, Chang! Why do you keep quoting Shakespeare? Why do you keep saying he's my favorite Earth writer?
