He's not trying to bring it down. It failed to meet his expectations and hopes. Cool down, man.


Probably the closest to hard big-brained science fiction Star Trek has ever gotten. However, it's saddled down by a sterile feeling in the acting, dialogue and elements of the visual design. The pacing is a bit slow, and it come sometimes be a bit of a drag. Still, it's one of only two Star Trek movies that feels like a big motion picture. And the smartest. And the film with the most delicious Probert-y goodness.


You've got a great villian with a big sense of adventure and lots of really really intimate character moments which was a really refreshing thing to see after watching TMP. There's a lot of stuff about life and death, youth and age and winning and losing in this film. If TMP was The Human Adventure... TWOK was The Human Life.


I don't understand the bad rap this film gets. Really, I don't.


Funny and for a time one of my favorites, but it's just not as...


TFF - C--

Good premise, crap comedy and good character moments. Basically, what Warped9 said.


Mainly a product of its times. Still an entertaining movie, but a bit weak as a standalone without the Cold War ending and departure of the TOS crew as context.


Close to total failure. Decent character moments and seeing the Enterprise-D in all her glory barely manages to recover this from absolute fail.

FC - B

Corrects all the failings of Generations. However, it leaves the door open for INS and NEM and here is where the concept of the Borg as villians starts to run a bit thin.

INS - X-

An F is not enough to describe this shit. Burn it.

NEM - F-

Well, at least it's more watchable than Insurrection.

Star Trek (2009) - A-

A very crowd-pleasing action film, which I enjoyed greatly. A very fun blockbuster no doubt, but it feels more like a repaired version of Star Wars than Star Trek. Not that I'm complaining, mind you.
STAR TREK: 1964-1965, 1966-1969, Jan. 21-23 1972, 1979-2001, 2003-2005, 2009-?
