Star Trek Into Darkness

I went to see this last weekend with The Armchair Squid, Wikes, their daughter and my son.  This marks the SECOND movie in a row that both the Squid and I remained awake through!!

I know reaction to this has run hot and cold.  Some blogging friends seemed to like it, while others walked out!

I liked it for what it was...a big action flick with some sci-fi elements.  Wikes called it STINO: Star Trek In Name Only...and I think she is right.

I proclaimed it my third favorite Trek film.  Squid asked what my top three were...

If I look at ALL 12 movies that fall under the "Star Trek" banner, here are my Flickchart rankings....

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
 Star Trek: First Contact
Star Trek Into Darkness
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
Star Trek
Star Trek: Generations
Star Trek III: The Search For Spock
Star Trek: Nemesis
Star Trek: Insurrection
Star Trek: The Motion Picture
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier 


  1. Excellent! I think my top 4 would probably be the same, though 2-4 would be IV, then First Contact, then the new one.

    1. I thought about making some comments but perhaps I will save that for next time. Some of the rankings surprised me. I think I'll go back and re-do Search for Spock.

      The REBOOT is the only one i have not seen in the theater and Into Darkness is the only one I have viewed only once (so far....)

  2. I haven't seen any of the ST films, I really should

  3. Love the poster for ST The Motion Picture. STINO is PDC.


Why, hello there!
