Re: TrekBBS movie ranking thread!

I must be easily entertained or just a bad Trek fan (I've heard both) but I can get enjoyment out of pretty much all the movies mostly because I just choose to overlook many of the things that piss others off. Insurrection I find a very good Star Trek movie despite the fact you can fly the E-E with an Atari joystick. I even like Nemesis, would I have rather it been a Wrath Of Sela movie - yes.

As for Galaxy Quest - if they're going to have a Star Trek parody on their list they should have added Master & Commander, a movie I've heard some of these die hards say was the best non Trek, Trek movie.

Re: TrekBBS movie ranking thread!

I enjoy all the TOS movies to a degree but to keep things simple I voted for the trilogy starting with Khan and ending with Voyage.

I do think Search for Spock is a bit underrated, especially compared with The Undiscovered Country.

Well, I'm sorry but I just can't believe that Abrams would think this movie would be well received considering he was trying to remake TWOK.
Not well received by who exactly?

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/star...into_darkness/

91% of viewers who saw it (219,760), liked it and it has an average rating of 4.3/5.

87% of movie reviewers who saw it (242) liked it and it has an average rating of 7.5/10.

I think you mean you can't believe J.J. Abrams thought you would like it.

I voted for TMP, The Voyage Home, First Contact & Into Darkness. Based on this trend my next favorite will be Star Trek 16.

Re: TrekBBS movie ranking thread!

I can find something to enjoy in all but TMP and Nemesis. I've tried to like them, but they're just...not my cup of tea, let's say.



My favorites are: Wrath of Khan, Undiscovered Country, Generations, First Contact, Star Trek, and Into Darkness.

I am surprised to see Insurrection behind Nemesis (at this point) at the bottom.

I also think it's telling that for all the crap it gets, TFF is ranked (currently) higher than the TNG films, Insurrection and Nemesis. My guess is that the original crew is carrying the votes.

Or it could be that The Final Frontier is simply a better movie.

Re: TrekBBS movie ranking thread!

It's a better movie because it's FUN and also hugely Big Three. And yes the original actors pull in votes for people because they are much more interesting than the TNG actors IMO. They get larger than life as they age whereas the TNG folk (with the exception of Stewart who seems ageless) just get kind of worn out.

INS is a not very exciting bog standard double episode of TNG.

NEM is a bad movie, but more of a movie than INS was.
