The first 1012 films are from The 1,000 Greatest Films list, and maintain the original order. The films that follow…
The future begins.
The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James Kirk, is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock, a Vulcan, was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before. The human adventure has begun again.
Freeing itself from the baggage of the previous instalments by setting its plot in an alternate timeline, thus preserving the contents of the original series without entirely depending on it, Star Trek is the reboot of the highly popular franchise of the same name that attempts to resurrect its vast universe from the ground up for a new generation of viewers but it has a lot in store for the old Trekkies as well.
Taking place in an alternate reality from the original series, the story of Star Trek follows the early years of James T. Kirk & Spock, covering their time in Starfleet which is soon followed by them travelling aboard the USS Enterprise to go against Captain Nero; a…
I've been a Trekkie for as long as I can remember. Apart from the atrocious Voyager I've watched every series from back to front and back again. I love the universe, the characters and tech babble. And I'm really happy that Mr. Abrams loves all those things as well.
As far as tributes go they don't get much better than this. For it is a tribute first and a reboot second. The care that was taken in finding the perfect actors for these iconic roles pays off as they are all perfect. Unfortunately for most of them though they all get completely outacted by Karl Urban. His take on Doc McCoy is simply perfection and a joy to watch.
"I like this ship! You know, it's exciting!"
Yes, I watched Star Trek on May 4th. Deal with it.
This...this is how you do an origin story/reboot. You've got the cast showing us these iconic characters, then putting their own unique little spin on them, whilst still being completely recognisable as Kirk/Spock/McCoy etc, the standout for me being Karl Urban as McCoy.
Then there's the film itself. This is probably one of the most enjoyable movies that came out in a pretty decent year for films in general. The action is exactly as adrenaline-fueled and exciting as you'd imagine, the soundtrack is one of the most awesome/triumphant I've heard and those opening ten minutes are simply outstanding.
But it really is all about the characters and the interactions between the cast. Which are just brilliant.
Bring on Into Darkness. Let's see what you've got.
"So, we've managed to eliminate all enemy ships, no one on board was injured, and the successful rescue of the Kobayashi Maru crew is under way."
Nobody eats an apple like Chris Pine.
If the only Star Trek movie I like more than this one is Galaxy Quest then I'm a bad Star Trek fan, aren't I?
I don't think it's anywhere near perfect even for pulpy sci-fi (see previous review), but this is a film which uses spaceships and aliens to capture something resonant about family, friendship and masculinity, and that's something no amount of lens flares can ruin.
And it's just so much fun.
Kirk and Spock for 2009 Cutest Screen Couple.
I'm so sorry, it's been a long day.
Rumours around J.J. Abrams remastering the entire Star Trek filmography confirmed.

Still love the crap out of this one though.
This review got way out of hand. It was more an exercise for me, a very long term Trek fan, explaining to myself why I liked this installment above the others. In short, Sacrilege! I’ll save you the read. It’s my favourite Star Trek movie because I felt it captured the spirit of the original series and characters far better than the others. Simple as that.
I remember the fall of 1966 like it was yesterday. I was 7 years old, and we had just moved to a new city, Montreal, that summer. I’m not sure how it came to be that I was in charge of the remote control on that weeknight evening, but, flipping through the channels I…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
No he visto nada de la saga antes, por lo que no puedo comparar con las originales, pero este inicio me ha parecido cojonudo.
Se que había gustado al público, pero la verdad es que esperaba mucho menos. La película ha sido una montaña rusa de emociones desde el comienzo con la Enterprise original, y con un villano que pese a tener unas razones muy trilladas, cumple y le pone las cosas difíciles a los protagonistas (Coño, casi extingue una raza reventando un puto planeta)
En cuanto al reparto, mira que detesto a Chris Pine, pero el y Zachary Quinto se salen. A Simon Pegg siempre es un gustazo verlo, se me había olvidado por completo que salía. Eso si, lo de Zoe Saldaña es imperdonable, hace poco o nada, y está en la nave "pa k aya una tia".
Ahora vamos con Into the Darkness, que quiero ver a Cumberbatch tocando los huevos.
While it occasionally feels a bit too silly and action heavy to be real Star Trek, there is no denying this is an entertaining piece of blockbuster film making. Abrams gets flack for all the lens flares but you know what, I like them. They give the film a consistent texture, make everything feel bright and new, and distinguish it from looking like every other Hollywood sci-fi. And hot damn does this ever look good. J.J. directs the hell out of this thing, giving us a visually impressive, action packed adventure that never feels like it's short changing its characters. Plus Quinto makes a great Spock.
When i saw this in theaters, i didn't know what to expect. I was/am more of a Star Wars guy anddidn't know much about Star Trek. Glad i did see it because i enjoyed this very much and still do. Altough i didn't like the beginning that much (the kids scenes) and was about to make my first walk out. It was after Kirk starts his training and especially after the great introduction of the Enterprise, the movie really grabbed me and i had so much fun watching it.
This is an excellent Trek for a new generation. The pace is much higher compared to the old movies. There's a lot more (onscreen) action. Budget is much more in this…
Man, I just love that Cold Open. This Star Trek movie is just a very pleasing blockbuster. Fun characters that we follow on an interesting origin story. A sense of stakes for all of the main people involved. Some beautiful imagery (with a few lense flares to deal with).
A great Star Wars movie before JJ went on to craft The Force Awakens.
Pine is obnoxious and so are the lens flares.
Ein ziemlich gutes Reboot. Die Effekte, Masken, Kostüme und Musik haben mir besonders gefallen. Das Schauspiel ist solide, jedoch halte ich Nero für eine zu eindimensionale Figur. Desweiterem geht Style manchmal über Sunstanz. Insgesamt ist es ein recht untehaltsamer Film, den man sich angucken kann.
La primera parte de este remake es, indiscutiblemente, maravillosa.
A mi parecer, pese a la nostalgia que pueda crear, esta versión no tiene nada que envidiar a la de la saga mater, puesto que cuenta con un argumento que, lejos de ser un error, supone un acierto adaptativo que no dista mucho del tan añorado guión original y que permitirá la suma de muchos adeptos de las generaciones presentes y venideras debido a su evidente evolución representativa con respecto a la primera cinta.
Por supuesto, tal caracterización y riqueza escénica provocan de manera gozosa una lograda mimetización con el entorno que hace que el espectador se sienta abordo del Enterprise y viva junto a los protagonistas cada una de las…
"Your father was captain of a starship for 12 minutes. He saved 800 lives, [...] I dare you to do better."
A strong reboot with great direction and writing. Yeah there's a little too much action at times but I don't feel like it undermines the purpose or theme of the film. Which at its core, is about legacy. Both in the ST universe and outside the screen.
Still one of the best openings in any movie ever.
How the fuck did Star Trek make me feel nostalgic about the series if I've never seen any of the films or a full episode of the show before?
Combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
