Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

Aside from the ending, this movie is awesome. I'm sorry, but Kirk's speech at the end -- it's so ... well, cheesy. Maybe that's what they were going for. But it was really cheesy. Way past mozzarella. More like sharp cheddar, but a lot more so. It's not bad cheese, so it's not American. It's just the principle of the thing. Kirk is a futuristic James Bond. He kicks butt and gets the girl. Hearing him give a "Why can't we all just get along?" speech is just not Kirk.

"Oh, but you should hear it (Shakespeare) in the original Klingon!"

"Cry 'Havoc!' and let slip the dogs of war!" --General Chang, shortly before his untimely demise, quoting Shakespeare (ironically, in English -- had it been in Klingon, we'd not have known what he said...)
