Ranking the Star Trek movies part 4 – The Franchise Ranked
Over the last month or so I’ve been ranking the films of the Star Trek film franchise from worst to best in each of its three areas; The Kelvin Timeline, The Next Generation, and The Original Series. Each has some good and some bad (and some awful) films, but where do they all stand in comparison to each other? Today, we’re gonna find out. Now I don’t expect everyone to agree with me (in fact, I know some Trekkies’ll hate my list). I also want to say that with most of the rankings, it’s based on what I enjoyed it more – I’m not necessarily saying it’s a better film than another one. One may be better made, but it just doesn’t connect with me as much. Finally, if you want to know what I think of each film/why it might be in the place it is, you can check out the(1) previous(2) posts(3) in this series. With all that said, let’s get to it shall we?
12) Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
11) Star Trek The Motion Picture
10) Star Trek: Nemesis
9) Star Trek III: The Search For Spock
8) Star Trek: Generations
7) Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
6) Star Trek: Insurrection
5) Star Trek Into Darkness
4) Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
3) Star Trek (09)
2) Star Trek Beyond
1) TIE between Star Trek: First Contact and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
Alright, that last one is a kind of a cheat – but I legit love them both equally. They are not only the high marks of their respective era’s; they’re the best of the franchise. Heck, outside of the Kelvin films (which were made for a wider audience), First Contact and Khan are the ones you can recommend to non-Trekkies.
How would you rank the Trek movies? Drop us a line and let us know what you think!
Hope you have a wonderful day, and God bless my friends!
