The Worst Star Trek EverAs someone who has been a big fan of Star Trek for many years, from the original series and movies, Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and such. It's so disappointing that such an awful movie can be made under the Star Trek name. This film is truly awful, terrible unimaginative storyline, wooden acting. It's just a disgrace to the whole franchise. I can't understand how such bad movies are ever made. Maybe they are done just to stream on video and gather clicks on iTunes in the hopes that they'll turn out money that way. It's just inconceivable that a studio and actors and director put work into something so bad..Score: 1/5
Star Trek Dirt BikesA decent Star Trek movie. Not as good as the first, but entertaining. My primary issue is with the filming...to be specific, the camera. Why does Justin Lin spin the camera around? And, much of the action uses "shaky cam" which means that they're hiding something (usually actors who can't fight convincingly). The action is extremely frenetic at times, but comes to a dead stop at others. Much of the acting is over the top (Bones is far too grumpy and rageful most of the time). But overall, its worth watching..Score: 3/5
Not worth the effort.This movie is a great disappointment. Terrible writing and editing, and even the actors, many of whom are excellent given decent material to work with, couldn't get excited about the script. The attempt at social engineering is obvious, but backfires. What it really relates to the viewer is that to force one's idea of the perfect social system onto people who don't share those beliefs serves only to disenfranchise people. I quit watching about 3/4 of the way through the movie because I really didn't care how it ended. Even an astute 12-year-old will find this to be an uninteresting and very weak movie. I had read the reviews, but wanted to make my own judgment. As I stated, not worth renting much less paying full price at the theater. My suggestion? Let Pegg do some acting, but find a writer who knows how to write a good Star Trek movie. Update: I watched again with the goal to see it to the end. It didn't get any better the second time around, and the ending was so completely sophomoric that causes one to make major eye-rolls. The first two movies, especially the first, were great. This one is an embarrassment..Score: 2/5
Beyond AwesomeStar Trek Beyond is one of the best movies of 2016! This movie was so awesome because of the Sci-Fi and Action because what is Star Trek without Sci-Fi and Action? Scotty was so funny in this! The characters were great. Jaylah was a great character. I loved this better than Into Darkness but the first one is still the best! Don't listen to bad critics or audiences saying Beyond is terrible. Because, NO IT ISN'T, IT'S GREAT! I can't wait for Star Trek 4. In Loving Memory of Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin......Score: 5/5
On autopilotGeneric villain, generic plot, forgettable and a disappointment after "Into Darkness". This should have been a Netflix movie..Score: 3/5
OUTSTANDING!!Just as incredibly fast paced and intensely action packed as it's two predecessors. Don't listen to the geeks whining about plot and in depth character delving. The plot is evident from the beginning and if you don't know these characters yet, you shouldn't judge them in the third installment of this sci-fi, cinematic excellence. You should see this movie. Whether you rent or purchase it, it IS worth the $$. Not to mention that Jaylah is awesome and Uhura rocks a skirt. Yea, I said that..Score: 5/5
JarJar - Terrible AgainLike so many JJ Abram movies, I get lost in all the action and forget the story - ACTION, there is way too much action again. Even an Original Star Trek episode is more compelling then these end-to-end action films..Score: 1/5

Star Trek BeyondThese movies are increasingly based on special effects and action rather than good writing and good acting. The plot of this one is very thin. If you think about it at all it falls apart quickly. Too bad..Score: 3/5
Star Trek is Beyond belief...If you're a Star Trek fan, then rent or buy it, but trust me, you need to be a hardcore fan to enjoy this melodramatic romp. The plot makes so little sense and is unbelievable to the point you can't help but talk out loud about it as it drones on. I think Simon Peg must have had a roulette wheel with plot devices marked on it that he spun each time he needed some way to up the tension. Sudden noises that distract the characters and allow the adversary to gain the upper hand and so on and on. If the starships had keys to start them, they would have had a character drop them just to ramp up the tension. Then when reaching for them, they'd accidentally knock them further, or the bad guy would pull them away at the last second, or the ship would tilt, and the keys would slide away, or they'd trip, etc. Quite literally every possible silly device is used in this movie. Then, what's with all the crossover with Star Wars? Funny looking aliens that serve no purpose other than to be funny looking aliens, similar sound effects of weapons to Star Wars, and even giving the evil dude the familiar sounding Darth Vader voice? Seriously? There's even a tunnel race leading to a structure that looks identical to the Death Star. There's a bit of typical Simon Peggish humor, but the story is so bad and cliched it's almost unwatchable. Even the acting was lackluster; the actors just seemed to be going through the motions, which I guess is all I could say for my experience watching it..Score: 2/5

Star Trek ExcitementThis fantasy sci-fi movie is a typical Trekkie adventure with a little twist. The action is exciting but I get this deja-vu feeling. I believe there's only so many ways you can create good vs bad. Still being a little bias, I enjoyed the pace, humour, action, & the new characters..Score: 4/5

It's not the film I have an issue withThis might be the best Star Trek ever written - but as long as Simon Pegg and Roberto Orci are involved with Trek chances are I won't be watching it. I feel like these stories aren't actually Trek either - like some alternate evil universe where everyone is eternally twenty five years old (or younger). That being written - I'm a huge Star Trek fan, and this movie is still in my que - but I hate myself for putting it there....Score: 1/5
