FlixList: The best Star Trek movies
by Matthew Razak

That title is a bit of a misnomer since I'm listing all of the Star Trek films here so really it's about ranking them from best to worst, but if we consider the fact that all Star Trek movies are awesome simply by being a Star Trek movie then it's entirely apt, right?

That might not be entirely true either. After watching through all 11 movies (again) I can say without a doubt that some of them are pretty bad, and yet even the bad ones have their redeeming values. As I ranked them I was often torn between loving a film for one reason and hating it for another. And while the franchise has had it's ups and downs in the theater if things continue getting better, as our review of Into Darkness suggests they are, I may just be adding a new number one to the top of the list.

Review: Star Trek Into Darkness photo
Review: Star Trek Into Darkness
by Nathan Hardisty

I thoroughly enjoyed the first Abrams Star Trek with all of its timeline meshing, cute references and lens flares. Into Darkness has been on my radar for a good while, and with Abrams now in the chair for Star Wars this seems like his final test. Into Darkness still has some big shoes to fill on its own. Can such a trick be pulled off again? Can Abrams deliver that same fresh and bold delivery as he did with the reboot?

As I'll get into more detail in this review, Abrams delivers an absolute joyride of a sequel that really goes above and beyond to become what might be the best film of the Summer and, undoubtedly, one of the most enthralling features of the year.
