Star Trek V

This is the one I hadn't seen before. The Enterprise gets hijacked by a nutty Vulcan who takes it through "The Barrier" to meet God. When God turns nasty (spoiler approaching) Spock blasts him with a space cannon. Supremely logical.

But we don't watch these things for the story, do we? We watch them for the sequences where Bones, egged on by James T, gets to taunt Spock about his green blood (The Doctor really was an appalling old racist) and Scotty gets to crawl all over the infrastructure of the Enterprise with a see-through spanner. The ideal Star Trek film would consist of nothing but schtick and banter and Spock's eyebrows going up and down.
