As the years go by I like Final Frontier more and Undiscovered Country less. FF is a mess, but it's an ambitious mess with one of the best scores, and the characters are at their best, including uber-charismatic Sybok.

TUC on the other hand aged poorly; the characters are all beginning to become caricatures, when they're not straight up out of character, and if you actually pay attention to the dialogue in the dinner scene it doesn't make a lick of sense. I said it elsewhere but it reads like a much better, longer scene was hacked apart in editing because practically everything is non sequitur.

The original script for Into Darkness that Paramount signed off on was way better and a more interesting movie: it was based partially off "Where No Man Has Gone Before" but instead of Gary Mitchell, Benedict Cumberbatch was supposed to play Robert April, and he would've been tearing rear end through the galaxy yelling about how "everything was wrong". With his godlike powers, he realized that the original timeline was altered and he went insane.

I kinda like the movie we got, but still, that sounds 10,000 times better
