Shakespeare-quoting Klingons! Another young female Vulcan protégé for Spock! Sulu commanding the Excelsior! The entire crew turned into racist assholes! Assassinations! Prisons! Shapechangers played by supermodels! The TOS Rewatch rips into Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

An excerpt:
Let’s get this out of the way: Kirk orders Spock to rape Valeris. Yes, that’s a charged comment; yes, that’s a serious allegation; yes, that’s utterly revolting. But it’s completely true. And just in case we’re not sure, Meyer films it that way, with Spock looming over Valeris, grabbing her arm, yanking her toward him when she tries to back off, and maintaining a firm grip on her hair while performing the meld. It’s a horrid act, a despicable violation of a person, and one that should never have been committed by people we have two-and-a-half decades of seeing as heroes up to this point.
