...even in a shitty movie with shitty dialogue the chemistry between these people still shines through somehow. It's one of those amazing alchemical mysteries of the interaction between human personalities โ€” even if they are only play acting. Shatner can phone in his whole performance and he still has more spark with Bones and Nimoy than the kids who are doing their very best to imitate them today. There's something in that mix that is wonderful and it never really goes away.
