I’ve Never Seen the Wrath of Kahn

Until last night, that is. Unable to sleep, I took a break from the late Tony Horwitz’s excellent (so far) Spying on the South, and decided to watch a movie. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn was one of the recommended movies. Now, I’d seen bits and pieces of it before, but never the whole thing. I knew parts of the story line, but had no continuity. So I decided to watch it, and see if it measured up to the hype.

It did.

The story was so good, in fact, that I hardly noticed how quaint and dated the special effects seemed. I’m glad that I took the time to see it, even though it didn’t help much with getting to sleep.

  1. Unforgettable movie for me because my friends and I almost got beat up in the theater when my one friend decided to flirt with a scary guy’s girlfriend. The movie was great because of the stakes and the consequences. And you see these actors (who, despite the common knocks against some of them, are actually quite good) making their comfortable roles more than cardboard cutouts.
