Going with Star Trek V. Despite all it's imperfections, and plot holes, it's really the most faithful to what TOS was like, and it is just a feel-good movie.

Some of the best one-liners in Trek, I thought. One of the baddest Klingons in Captain Klaa (I think that was his name), and the general togetherness of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. Their friendship was defined with the camping trip. Here were three grown men, and they decided to spend their leave time together on a camping trip. They could've gone their seperate ways and done whatever they wanted to, but these guys decided to spend it together. I thought that was a defining moment of the movie. And then, after all of the dust up was over, at the end of the movie, there they were picking up where they left off. I hope that helps out some.

 

Oh. And that Romulan chick was really hot. That probably does nothing for you. Sorry. But, well....she was. I'm going now.

 

Hey, thank you! I am a ST fan since I was 13 years old (In march this year I`ll be 21...) But still this was the only thing I could not understand completely - but now I realize I just didn`t try enough! I watched the movie again, having in mind what you wrote. I think I understand now.

And it`s OK to write when someone is hot =)


 


Glad I could help. I actually haven't watched it in a while, and now you've got me wanting to see it again. Which is cool. I have to go and find it, because it's one of the Treks that I still don't have for my collection. I've been a Trek fan since I was about 6 years old. I was hooked when I first saw it. In March, I'll be 49.

I think you chose the four worst ones for this poll, although Motion Picture was at least tolerable.  The best ones are Wrath of Kahn, The Undiscovered Country, and First Contact.  Star Trek was pretty good (the cast did a wonderful job imitating the original cast), but the story line completely invalidates everything else that happened up to that point (which always happens when they alter time lines). 


The final frontier was just plain stupid.  The ship is hijacked by a guy who makes you come in touch with your inner pain so you'll do what he wants which is take the ship to God, who turns out to be an evil alien being...seriously?


Insurrection was Okay, but didn't have the depth that the good movies had.


Nemesis should have been renamed "Wrath of Kahn Copy."  How about originality?  A new story?  And the tone of this movie was significantly darker than the others.  Star Trek has always been gripping and cutting edge, but there was always hope for something better.  This is a future where technology serves us well and minds are enlightened.  It's not like other science fiction tales that involve complete destruction, loss of hope and societies of sad, warring people.  I like to pretend Nemesis never happened.

I believe you missed the whole point of the question and why the post was unique. The idea was to declare which of the more universally disliked films is the one you like best.


I don't think it was an invitation to bash those movies in the same general fashion we've seen hundreds of times before.


 


I think "Wrath of Khan Copy" and "The Search for God" jokes are about as old as the movies themselves.

Of the choices, I like TFF the best. If you pay attention to the campfire scene there's a fart joke in there. But I just saw Insurrection and it's really good too.

I can't believe anyone liked any part of Nemesis after Data sings and Will gets married. It was awful. Really bad storyline. It was weak, and I know a weak story when I see one.

I thought it had a lot of good character moments between Picard and Shinzon, and Data and B-4.

Had to go with Nemesis, though Final Frontier could switch with it, depending on how I feel. Insurrection just seems to get worse and The Motion Picture is my least favorite of all Star Trek movies.
