Oh well. The movie's been out for two years. All the observations have been made. I'm just having a little visual fun pointing out the stupidity of it all

I know...............I was vaguely hoping that the creator of the video had found something original.

Alas, like many of the supposed 'criticisms' of the film, they hadn't. Ah well, maybe someday.............though I would have to disagree about Kirk's arrogance. Especially since I'm watching TMP just now and that's about all he is during his early conduct with several of the Enterprise crew until his arrogance leads him to jeopardise the ship.

Even in some TOS episodes like Tribbles, Kirk is a swaggering cocky guy. The fact is, Kirk's character has been all over the spectrum depending on which episode or film you are watching.

Is he the serious intellectual bookworm? Depends on the episode or film
The swaggering, pompous blowhard? Depends on teh episode or film

There is no one template. There's been lots of different takes on the character. And that's just in TOS
