    Well, the first film is more impressive visually than this (and musically), but this has better character development and story.

    People are never going to believe this, but... RUNAWAY is in my top-10 favourite Jerry scores.

    Yes, for all its faults, it has some of the best character bits in the entire film series.

    I’ve always loved Trek V. 
     
    It’s loaded with great character interactions with Kirk, Spock and McCoy. 
     
    It feels like a big TOS episode with a Space God that the crew must react to.  This was a very common Roddenberry theme. 
     
    Although the visual effects are disappointing, the film is fun and has a lot of heart.

    Runaway (Jerry Goldsmith)
    Very original, only-synth score, that I kind of like (although I prefer orchestral music).

    I grew up listening to Runaway (damn entertaining movie too) and while synth like this sounds weird now, I never gave it a second thought in the 80s. It was part of the decade’s sound and this score just rocks.

    It's a personal preference.
     
     
    STAR TREK V is a lot better than most people will tell you.
    It has many faults, but, for all that, it is still a decent film.
    Three things about it stand out:
    1/ it has some of the best cinematography of the entire series,
    2/ the sound design is great,
    3/ every Star Trek fan should be falling to their knees at Shatner's feet, thanking him for bringing back Jerry Goldsmith.

    After 43 years, TMP is still my favourite Star Trek film. I doubt that anything will change that.

    THEATRICAL CUT
    I hadn't seen this for more than 20 years and I didn't remember much. 
    A somewhat weak story-wise Star Trek film but very impressive nonetheless!
    The Jerry Goldsmith score is magnificent, especially in the first appearance of the Enterprise scene. A lesson to learn for today's filmmakers who are afraid of film music and want just a music rug underneath.

    It's a very good film. It's, also, Parker's most cinematic film.

    Yes, money talks, and yes, that's how it is.
     
    It’s not Hollywood’s fault, they’re doing what they’re designed to do, sell tickets. They’re being true to their nature. They sell tickets, we buy tickets. That's how we talk with our money, in which films we choose to buy tickets for. 
     
    As long as they continue to serve dog food and fans eat it up like it's filet mignon, we're stuck with what we get, and are expected to enjoy it. Not only enjoy it, but be grateful for it. The fault lies with us. The cinema we get, we deserve. 
     
     

    Well then, there it is.

    Adjusted for inflation, I believe it's still behind "Highlander 2: The Quickening".
