Star Trek IV, 1986

 First viewing, Swift Watch party



The movie came out in 1986, the year I moved to San Francisco. I was 21 years old and a goth rocker who drank a lot of cheap wine and did a lot of LSD. I did not go to mainstream movies. I saw the first Star Trek movie in the theater when I was a teen and fell asleep. I had no interest in seeing a Star Trek movie after that. Not sure how this popped up on my radar but I think I was feeling a little nostalgia for the city I’ve loved and called home for 35 years. 

Well, I adored this movie. I am a big fan of TOS and this movie hit all the right notes for me. The cavernous plethora of plot holes didn’t even bother me. The inaccuracies of the depiction of San Francisco didn’t bother me. I just wish there had been more of the city in it. I really enjoyed this very dumb movie.
