Movie Series - Star Trek

The adventures of the USS Enterprise in theaters. I think the movie series should stand apart from the TV shows, as they are a bit different.

1 JJ Abrams makes a Star Trek movie. And the result is "Frat Boys in Space". Honestly, has anyone involved in these Abrams abominations ever even seen an episode of Star Trek? I have the impression Abrams was given a list of Star Trek nomenclature and character names then given carte blanche to make whatever movie he wanted using those. Bears no other relation to anything else in the accepted Star Trek canon. Abrams not only boned the fish but flushed it down the drain. The weakest episode of TOS is magnitudes better than this garbage. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 2:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I'm going to vote "unboned by the 2009 film." Here is my brief recap of the Star Trek movies. I have seen all of them (most of them multiple times) except for Nemesis, which I have found to be unwatchable. 1.) Star Trek: The Motion Picture was actually much better than most contemporaries credited it for. 2.) Star Trek II: TWOK has been, and always shall be, our friend. 3.) ST III: TSFS was relatively weak compared to ST II; the re-casting of Saavik was painful (although it's not like Kirstie Alley was the best actress). On the upside -- Christopher Lloyd playing a Klingon. 4.) ST IV: TVH was my favorite when I was a kid, although it has aged a little. But if you don't like it, well, double dumbass on you! 5.) ST V: TFF was a trainwreck, and probably where the film series (at least as far as the original crew) can be said to have BTF. The exact moment where fish-boning occurs -- Nichelle Nichols (who is about the same age as my grandmother) doing a "seductive" desert dance. 6.) ST VI: TUC is actually quite good, but after the disaster that was the fifth film, seems like a too-little-too-late effort to salvage the reputation of the series. 7.) ST:Generations. I was very excited for this film when it came out, but the cross-over with Shatner seemed forced. It wasn't nearly as awful as the fifth film but was still pretty bad. Moreover, it seemed like an overly-long ST:TNG episode... something about it's pacing I guess. 8.) ST:First Contact was really the only good ST:TNG film. It wasn't quite as good as The Wrath of Khan, but definitely on par with the quality of the first four. 9.) ST:Insurrection, again, reverted to form as an overly-long television episode rather than as a stand-alone movie. I can't really think about anything in this film that made me excited to be watching it. But at least it wasn't terribly crappy. 10.) ST: Insurrection. As noted above, I haven't been able to finish it because I am completely uninterested. I happen to think that Picard was the best captain of the Enterprise, but it is really a fact that (with the exception of First Contact) all of the Picard-helmed films fell short. 11.) Star Trek (2009). A much-needed re-imagining of the original series, with a cross-over to ST:TNG (sort of). This has definitely revived my interest in the series, and as noted above, I vote for a de-bone. 12.) Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013). I have not seen this yet, but I am very much looking forward to seeing it. Waiting until next week when it will be available in 3D. -- Submitted By: (texasyojimbo) on May 11, 2013, 12:24 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 To me it boned with the 2009 film. I agree with the person here who said they should have come up with new ideas or new characters instead of ripping off the name and replacing loved characters with new actors. The newest film was nothing more than eye candy. -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on November 30, 2012, 3:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I won't comment on the reboots, but I thought the way "The Wrath Of Khan" ended would have been the PERFECT way to end the Star Trek TOS series. Spock sacrifices his own life to save the enterprise. They give him a funeral that brings the starship down. The end. Was it sad? Hell yes! Possibly the most original, some would say best, character from the series meets his fate. For once, they didn't do a cop out ending (e.g. "Checkov died because his MIND killed him".), or pick some "red shirt" to kill off ("alas Lieutenant Lipshitz I knew they well, even if the viewers didn't"). No, they gave the audience something they totally didn't expect, Spock's demise in the service of Star Fleet. Sad ending, but epic. A stroke of genius right? WRONG! Too many "trekkies" apparently got their bowels in an uproar over Spock being killed off, so they had him be "regenerated" in the next sequel by some sort of, oh who the hell knows? I'm not saying no ST film after ST2 was good, but by the time they had "The Voyage Home" it was more like a comedy than anything else. I think they missed a great cinematic opportunity there just to maximize their profits. "Spock's death" could have been looked back on as one of the most shocking moments in movie history. Instead, it's looked at as just another "guy not in a red shirt" getting reincarnated with a lame explanation for it. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 30, 2012, 3:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Boned with Generations for me. 1 and 5 were weak, but 1 had great FX and 5 had a few good ideas. Both had great Jerry Goldsmith soundtracks. Also, I don't know if many people know this, but the DVD version of 1 is actually a Special Edition that actually made the film better! They fixed some mistakes, added a couple new FX shots, and cut out a lot of the boring and stupid stuff. They also added good some stuff to parts 2 & 6 on the DVD. Then Paramount for some inexplicable reason went back to the inferior theatrical cuts for 1,2,& 6 on Blu-ray. I really couldn't stand all the Next Generation movies, and there were plotholes in the reboot that I just couldn't get over. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 24, 2011, 6:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I did like ST4 (aka Star trek: The Comedy), but its genesis is interesting. It started as a cross-over between the Star Trek crew, and Eddie Murphy. Murphy was originally going to be the earth person that met the Trek crew, although I assume under somewhat different circumstances than in ST4! Somehow, in the back and forth of negotiations, Murphy dropped out, the earth setting was kept, and the film morphed into the version that we saw on screen. So, as much as some of you may dislike ST4, remember that it could have been far, far worse... -- Submitted By: () on November 23, 2011, 7:05 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

8 Im with Soggy, I never got the love for ST 4- it just seemed like a really bad film to me. Too much crappy 80's comedy to take the film at any level besides schlock, and yet it is held up as a GOOD film, while Search for Spock gets panned- never understood that. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 8, 2011, 9:39 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I guess I'm too demanding because I only liked The Wrath of Khan, The Undiscovered Country, and 2009's "reboot". The Voyage Home may be a fan favorite, but there was too much comedy for my taste. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 6:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Tanlee - You can explain why Star Trek V sucked with two words: "William" and "Shatner." If Shatner never sits in a director's chair again, that's just fine by me! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on October 28, 2009, 9:40 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Star Trek V- The Final Frontier. Up till this point the Star Trek films were on the up. Even The Motion Picture had its chilling moments, but Star Trek II- Wrath of Khan was a big step up, then Star Trek III was a transitionary film and Star Trek IV- The Voyage Home was the best of the lot. With the series on the up and featuring characters that for twenty years had honed their magic and charm, for some unexplained reason Star Trek V- The Final Frontier suddenly made the franchise feel desperate. Gone was the organic storytelling and naturally spontaneous characters and in its place was this embarrasing, undignified and contrived display of cheap slapstick jokes at the expense of the characters. Still it had its moments. Star Trek VI- The Undiscovered Country was a great return to form, Generations I actually thought was a very powerful, haunting film. First Contact was fun to watch the first few times but it was ultimately a rather shallow 'greatest hits' shopping list package. Insurrection was terrible, Nemesis was quite good in my opinion, and the new Star Trek film was mostly impressive but marred by the odd need to rewrite the canon rather than just declare it an unconnected remake, and as ConfusedMatthew pointed out the villain had no decent motivation and the Kobayashi Maru scene just made Kirk look like he was having a laugh rather than proving an intellectual point. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on October 28, 2009, 4:02 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I think that the recent movie killed Star Trek. It was primarily space opera/SFX eye candy, with a few characters vaguely reminiscent of Trek classic stirred in. If it hadn't been called "Star Trek", I wouldn't have gotten bent out of shape. I feel that there's a certain intellectual dishonesty in putting a name associated with an existing "Franchise", and then doing something with little connection with the original. It's like trying to have your cake and eat it too - if you want to do something almost totally new, that's fine: Let it sink or swim on its own merits. Conversely, if you associate it with an existing "Franchise", then there are certain expectations from the pre-existing fan community that you're trying to attract. In the case of the newest Trek movie, I think they went too far. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 28, 2009, 8:43 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I went last night. I'm not a star trek fan but it was a blast. Hope they do another one are they planning it? -- Submitted By: (Hikariu) on May 13, 2009, 6:36 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Yeah, I was one of millions of people who went to see the new "Star Trek" just recently. I agree, it's a very good film! I'm glad I decided to go see this movie in the theater AT THE LAST MINUTE!!!!! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on May 12, 2009, 6:52 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Excuse me for keeping the art of dissent alive but. . . J.J. Abrams has once again used time travel as a means to deal with plot problems(see also "Lost"). While this tactic may be hailed far and wide now, in 20 years time (if anyone's still around), time travel may be considered by many to be the last refuge of sci-fi hacks who can't think of any other means to get out of corners they've painted for themselves! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 12, 2009, 11:23 am - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Once again, I completely agree with C. Rain. This new J.J. Abrams version of Star Trek completely unboned the future of the series. Amazing movie that was tons of fun to watch! -- Submitted By: (Koskov) on May 11, 2009, 5:04 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Just saw the JJ Abrams film this evening- it officially unboned the mess that Insurrection and Nemesis threw it into, "Star Trek" by JJ Abrams was fun, exciting and vibrant, I was shocked with how good it was, and how I amactually excited for them to make sequels to this franchise again. Go see the new Film, it IS worth your time. And grab some Long John Silver's before you go, just to have the taste of fish, LEAVE your mouth at the theatre as you eat popcorn!! Thank you JJ Abrams for bringing this mess back to respectability! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 10, 2009, 9:12 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
18 Multiple Bonings and Re-Bones here First Film- AWFUL, Khan and Search for Spock brought it back- the 4th film- 80's time travel and eco message = AWFUL FISH BONING. Fifth Film- Shatner cant direct at all= BONING TO A NEW DEGREE. 6th Film, Re-Boned to the good. Generations, BONED AGAIN!! First Contact, De-Boned, then Insurection and Nemesis tossed the Bone to the Dogs again!!! Will JJ Abrams with the new 11th film unbone that which has boned 5 times in 10 prior films? -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 25, 2009, 8:41 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
