Those special effects were spectacular in the 1960s!
You have a good point. I think I take the old special effects for granted because I'm so used to what we have now. :B
But you have to admit, some of the creatures were really silly. LOL. Like the Gorn lizard-looking creature.
No special effects with him, but he was shamefully bad at beating up Kirk.
Never got into Star Trek..I'm a Star Wars kinda guy myself.
I like both. I'm not sure if it's fair to compare the two, however; although they're both sci-fi, they're so different.
BTW, I'm seeing the movie this Sunday and I hope it'll be enjoyable.
