Reddit users have picked a very interesting top 10 Star Trek films list.
Reddit is a heck of a place. A collection of forums for anything you may want to talk about, which includes Star Trek. There was a time before Reddit when you had to know what websites had their own independent forums in order to talk about specificities like Trek, but nowadays that’s no longer an issue.
You no longer have to look for that one forum that you heard about from your friend on AIM, you can now just go to Reddit. Wanna talk about Star Trek films? Then Reddit has your hookup. In fact, they already talked about the films.
One member of the Trek Reddit forum apparently came up with their listing of the 10 best Star Trek films. The creator of the thread, u/NotA_ProCritic, listed their top 10, which included some surprises.
- Wrath of Khan
- The Undiscovered Country
- The Voyage Home
- First Contact
- The Final Frontier
- The Search for Spock
- The Motion Picture
- 2009 Reboot
One film keeps popping up at number one
In turn, the rest of the thread started posting their own top 10’s and complete rankings, but one film seemed to pop up a bit more often at number one than many people may think. When we talk about the best Star Trek films of all time, we don’t just think of personal favorites. I for one love Into Darkness, but it’s not for everyone.
So the two or three movies that usually get the top billing are Wrath of Khan, First Contact and if you’re more recent, the 2009 reboot. Yet, one film got some serious love on this thread and that film is The Undiscovered Country; the last of the original Star Trek films
It’s not surprising that it did, while the series has a lot of great villains, Christopher Plummer was a standout among standouts and was the only villain interviewed in the Star Trek: Captains Documentary.
It’s good to see fans giving love to other great films in the franchise.
