Star Trek: First Contact (20th Anniversay)

Had to fix a clogged drain tonight, so not much time for words tonight.

In short, happy 20th anniversary to First Contact, one of the best Star Trek movies. Action-packed but still soulful, proudly trumpeting a better tomorrow. No offense to J.J. Abrams, but I still think it's the most masterfully directed movie of the franchise. The way the camera moves around James Cromwell as he steps forward to shake that Vulcan's hand gives me goosebumps every time.

It's a shame that Jonathan Frakes wasn't at the helm of more blockbusters. He's one hell of a director who made one hell of a film.
