"ST VI: The Undiscovered Country" review

From the scrapbook comes this positive review of the last original-cast film, clipped from the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel newspaper, published on or near December 5th, 1991.

(Click on images to enlarge.)

It's funny how two different reviewers can have such wildly conflicting opinions on the same film, based on their perception of the source material. Here is another review, from the Miami Herald, which I posted earlier.
Bonus: Below, from the scrapbook is a popular publicity shot that many fans are familiar with!

Bonus #2: another of the wackily-captioned 1967 Leaf cards, this one particularly head-scratchingly strange.
Below is a photograph of a poster-sized pen-and-ink drawing I did in my senior year, 1976. The photo reduction is all that remains of it, the original having been wrecked during various moves. The dark shading over the text was a photo developing error by the friend in school that took it, they were not shaded in the original.

Seeing that Sun-Sentinel newspaper (and Roger Hurlburt, who served as the paper's art critic, to boot!) sure brings back memories...thanks!

I do wish you'd post those "Starship Enterprise" comic store pics, even if you have to blur out the employees' (shy) faces! ;)

Glad you enjoyed it! I guess I will post those pictures, since you are interested. I'll get them together and blur out our privacy-protecting fellow! Watch for it soon.

The Undiscovered Country remains my absolute favorite of the Star Trek films. It's nice to see that it got the response that it deserved.

Also, congrats on the drawing! Even with it's aged flaws its still quite impressive.

Thanks for the comment, and for the drawing compliment! What I lacked in skill or know-how I made up for in passion for the subject.
