They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here!
This is much more like it. After directing several episodes of The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager, Jonathan Frakes makes his feature film directing debut for a franchise that he'd been working on for almost a decade. He knew the characters, he knew how to work with a budget constraint and hopefully he…
I take it the odds are against us, and the situation is grim.
Star Trek: Generations would have made a decent series finale for The Next Generation had it aired on television at the end of it's 7th season, but instead Paramount Pictures tried to pass off it's story as a feature film. The entire premise of the film is built around the notion that the characters of Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) needed to…
There is an old Vulcan proverb: only Nixon could go to China.
The film that helped solidify the myth that the odd numbered Star Trek films were cursed, while the even numbered films were the only good ones. There's a much more simpler explanation for this occurrence however and it's the simple fact that all the even numbered films, including this one, had major involvement from writer/director Nicholas Meyer while the others didn't.
The 25th Anniversary of Star Trek…
Another horror film built around some great ideas but stumbles getting to them. The story concept by Jonathan Mostow could have been very memorable but in the end the script written by David Loucka has no idea how to properly use those concepts that have more then one reveal that should have made for a great genre film.
The cast is actually great, which just highlights the wasted potential the film had even more. Jennifer Lawrence was…
Marianne: There's a higher power that will judge you for your indecency.

Emma Stone seems to have a bright future ahead with upcoming films directed by the likes of Alejandro González Iñárritu, Cameron Crowe and Woody Allen. Will Gluck on the other hand is directing the upcoming Annie remake.
Please Captain, not in front of the Klingons.
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home was a big risk that ended up being the most successful project to come out of Star Trek in it's then 20 year history. I think the only explanation for what happened next is that Paramount Pictures got cocky. For The Voyage Home they greenlit the franchise's most absurd plot in it's history, so they probably thought giving the go ahead on a story that…
Just had to frak her, didn't ya?

The development of Blood & Chrome started out as a proposed pilot for another prequel series to Battlestar Galactica (2003) that would have aired on the SyFy Network. Even though they passed on the series, stating that it would have simply been too expensive to produce, they still aired the pilot as a stand alone movie after it had originally aired as a 12 part web series.
The overall production, acting…
Vincent Van Gogh. Everyone said to him, "You can't be a great painter, you only have one ear." And you know what he said? "I can't hear you."
Jay Roach, the man behind the camera for the Austin Powers films and the two first Meet the Parents, tries life without Meyers or Stiller. While it seems the film falls into either love it or hate it territory for most people on Letterboxd, I still enjoy the film a great…
You're proposing that we go backwards in time, find humpback whales, then bring them forward in time, drop 'em off, and hope to Hell they tell this probe what to do with itself?!
With 24 seasons over 5 television series and 12 feature films, The Voyage Home has to have the most ridiculous plot in Star Trek's over 45 year history and yet it ends up being one of it's greatest films. Not only does the film feature no…
That green-blooded son of a bitch. It's his revenge for all those arguments he lost.
With the surprise success of Star Trek II came a demand for a sequel right away. There was no longer a need to redesign everything from the get go as everyone thought they got it right this time, but unfortunately Nicholas Meyer was displeased with how his film's ending was tampered with against his wishes and refused to direct it's sequel. Say what you…
You might want to put your mask on. You’re about to be an accessory to a major crime.
Josh Schwartz, the creative mind behind such tv series as The O.C., Chuck and Gossip Girl, takes a stab at directing from a script by long time Colbert Report series writer Max Werner. Both are making their feature film debuts in what can best be described as a complete misfire.
It's a PG-13 film that was co-produced with Nickelodeon Movies so…
The film that everyone wanted Star Trek: The Motion Picture to be. Even though the first film was met mostly with disappointment by critics and fans it still managed to pull in just enough money to warrant a sequel. A sequel with a considerable smaller budget mind you, but a sequel none the less. This, along with a few other elements that should have effected the project negatively, inadvertently created not only the best possible Star Trek film…
