By Scott D. Pierce Deseret News Deseret News film critic Jeff Vice and I agree on just about everything, as frightening as that may be (at least for Jeff). There are, however, three notable exceptions: 1. The 1984 movie "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai." Jeff thinks it's great; I think its a big, fat bore. 2. Which is the worst "Star Trek" film?
