Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (DC Comics Adaptation)

If there's a movie that's at the bottom of my rankings for the original crew films, it's definitely Star Trek V. Directed by William Shatner and coming a few years after the mega success of The Voyage Home, it's a mess of a picture that leans a little too much into its jokeiness and doesn't …
