The “Star Trek” Movies Ranked (The Original Crew)


The “Star Trek” Movies Ranked (The Original Crew)

Hey gang! Vic here with another movie franchise “rankings” post for you all to enjoy. It is my rankings of the “Star Trek” movies to star The Original Crew. I intentionally left out “Star Trek: Generations” since all of The Original Crew were not in the film. That particular movie will be ranked in a future post for movies which starred The Next Generation crew instead. On to the rankings and I hope you all have fun checking it out!

    • Hey Barry! Great to hear from you, man! Glad you enjoyed the rankings and happy to know you think they are solid. I had a blast gathering together the artwork and posters. Glad you like them.

      Thanks for checking in, Barry. I appreciate it and enjoy your weekend!

  1. Hey, Vic! Long time, buddy! I could agree more with your assessments and I appreciate the fact that you didn’t treat STV:TFF as badly as most fans do.

    Like I always say, even the worst Star Trek is usually better than most scifi out there… except for Nemesis… that film was just a big floating turd.

    Thanks for the plug with my review of Star Trek Into Darkness.

    Also what theme are you using cuz I love it.

    • Hey Shawn! Great to hear from you, bro. Yeah, I still find much to like in STV. I usually enjoy the goofball proceedings in that one because, honestly, Shatner and crew look like they are having a blast. Too bad the budget given to Shat prevented him from re-hiring ILM to do the FX. So, he had to settle with Ferren, who did Altered States, I believe. And the story was pretty neat, too. All of the characters had their moments and they all interacted pretty well. I totally dug Sybok. He was wicked.

      As for Nemesis (you’re gonna think I’m insane for admitting this), I enjoyed it and I actually grew to like it more with repeated viewings. I know that it gets all the hate but for some reason, I don’t find too much fault in it. Oh well, that’s just me. And yeah, bad Trek is still good sci fi on any given day.

      No prob on the Into Darkness review, man! I was happy to share it and I appreciate you letting me do so. I got tons of feedback on it. Also withe your Lego Movie review, too!

      The theme I am using currently is “Flounder” It is one that I am using for now until I upgrade my WordPress account later this summer. Glad you like it.

      Thanks for stopping by, Shawn and e mail me when you can, so we can catch up bro. Enjoy your weekend and hope you are well!

  2. Hello Vic! Cool artwork, I would say my fave poster is the Voyage Home’s humpback whale against the blue background. Wrath Of Khan tops my list too. Have a good weekend!

    • Isn’t that VH poster, wicked? I thought it was very original and simplistic while getting the message of the film across. I had a blast getting these posters and all of the artwork together.

      Glad you enjoyed the rankings! Thanks for checking in and you enjoy your weekend as well. 🙂

  3. Cool list Vic. I would agree with all your rankings. I’m surprised that you gave TMP a decent rating. Most folks dismiss that one along with V. I always thought it had a cerebral approach and was most like the original series in terms of exploration. Great work man!

    • I’ve always enjoyed and defended TMP, you are right, so many dismiss it and feel that it is too brainy, wordy and slow. I, also, liked the approach it took and it was brave of Wise to go in that cerebral direction which definitely reflected what the show was about. Including the exploration aspect of it. And as a stand alone film, it is very well done sci fi with operatic overtones.

      V is still fun for me even though it is silly as hell and not very well put together but Shatner and the rest are all having fun and I really enjoyed Sybok and the subplot about him and Spock. I thought, overall, that TFF had a very cool concept that just didn’t unfold the way it should have. I’m glad you liked the post, Eric and thanks for checking in. Also, thanks for the re-blog 😉

  4. Reblogged this on deaconsden and commented:
    From Vic’s Movie Den. The movies of the Original Crew of Star Trek ranked. Usually I have one or two changes of my own but I feel this list is pretty spot on.

  5. Great rankings for the original Star Trek movies, I would have placed them the same as well. The top three are my favourites featuring the original crew of the Enterprise. Awesome poster gallery as well 😀

    • Happy to hear you rank them the same, Paul! Glad you enjoyed the post and the gallery. It was a blast putting it all together and some of the art work is so extremely impressive.

      Thanks for checking in, Paul. Always appreciated and enjoy your weekend! 🙂

    • Thanks Michael! I had just as much fun putting these together as I did for the Star Wars post. So many very impressive artists and posters out there. I’m big into alternate posters and movie art. Glad you liked them, man!

      i appreciate you stopping by. Have a great weekend!

  6. It’s hard to top Khan, but the Undiscovered Country has always been and always will be my favorite. I don’t even remember the odd numbered ones honestly and been a long time since I’ve seen 4. Only own the two best ones.

    • Oh man, The Undiscovered Country is amazing on multiple levels. The entire “Space Glasnost” and final voyage elements worked so well in that movie. And I love that it is equal parts political thriller and a whodunnit. Paramount and the franchise were lucky to have Meyer come back for that entry.

      As for 6 and 2, you do indeed own the 2 best ones. 4 is a great film as a standalone story that is geared just as much to casual sci fi fans as well as to the die hard followers. The odd numbered films, sadly, don’t hold up as well but The Search for Spock is my favorite odd numbered entry. It’s short and sweet.

      I appreciate you checking in Bubbawheat. It’s always great to hear from you and thanks for your feedback on Twitter as well. Glad you enjoyed the post and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    • Thanks Brian! Glad you liked it, man. Appreciate you checking in. Enjoy your Father’s Day 😉

    • i will! These have been a lot of fun to put together. Glad you agree with my rankings! Thanks for checking in, again. Always appreciated 🙂

    • Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the artwork and the posters, as well. These ranking posts are a blast to put together, I must admit. I appreciate you checking in, it’s always appreciated!
