The Wrath of Khan is my personal favorite. Granted First Contact is a very close second.
Sadly I must disagree with those who liked Undiscovered Country. I always felt it was the worst film of the ones with the original crew and second worst of all of them. Only Insurrection was worse to me. Seriously, why does God need a starship?

I think Final Frontier was the God one...

THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY WAS NOT ABOUT GOD!!!!!!!
That was The Final Frountier, which was quite weak.  The Undiscovered Country is about a conspiricy between federation and Klingon factions, and was quite intense.

THE WRATH OF KHAN is the most literate, best-acted, and inspired of the bunch.

On the plus side, the director's cut did make a few things clearer. In the original, I never could sort out what V'ger looked like overall. It was kind of nice to see the whole thing and where all of those closeups fit in.

I liked The Motion Picture, but the one I've watched the most times, and could sit down and watch any time, is The Wrath of Khan. Best of the bunch, for sure. The Undiscovered Country, First Contact and The Voyage Home would also be high on my list.

Had to go with WRATH also.

But my favorite line from any of the films is in THE VOYAGE HOME. When they are briefly debating the possible effects on the future giving the businessman the formula for 'transparent aluminum' could have, Scotty asks "How do we know he didn't invent the thing?".  Smile

I also love Scotty's line "The beasties seem glad to see you, doctor."

Ok, here's my rundown of the films (Possible spoilers):




Star Trek, The Motion Picture:  Another snooze-fest from Robert Wise, who also gave us the plodding "Andromeda Strain".

Star Trek II : The Wrath of Khan: Yes, it's great, it's the best of the series, all that jazz, yadda yadda yadda.  RIP Ricardo Montalban.

Star Trek III: The Search For Spock:  Not terrible, but I didn't like how it negated the last film by killing Kirk's son and destroying Genesis (This is what I call 'pulling an Alien 3')

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home:  Not my favorite, but it's still very entertaining.

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier: ...This is why William Shatner should never direct anything.

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country: Very well done.  Nicholas Meyer was a brilliant director who never really got the credit he deserved. 

Star Trek: Generations: Very disappointing.  I cried more when Data found his cat at the end, than when Kirk died.  Plus, I think that suddenly killing off Picard's family was an incredibly pointless and cruel thing to do, when you consider all he went through in the series. 

Star Trek: First Contact:  This is actually my favorite in the series, with II not far behind.  Great story, awesome FX (Borg designed by HR Giger in this one), and terrific acting from the cast, along with Cromwell and Woodard.  This was the last great Star Trek movie ever made, for me. 

Star Trek: Insurrection:  They really tried with this one, but they just couldn't get me to care about the plot, or the new characters.  At least Riker had the good taste to grow his beard back after this one, and spare us any more of his double chin. 

Star Trek: Nemesis: The lame, derivative "evil twin" of an enemy is what killed this film for me.  Plus, I got really upset when they killed off Data.  Again, I saw no good reason for doing it.  If they were trying to evoke the same emotions that Spock's death created, then they failed miserably. 

Here's hoping the reboot film will get this franchise back on track.

When Nemesis came out,the local 1 dollar theater had 3 consecutive weekends where you could pay 1 dollar and see 3 Star Trek movies.
First weekend  1-3(I skipped the first one)
second weekend  4-6(I saw all three and won a Captain Sisko action figure)
third weekend  Generations,First Contact and Insurrection(i stayed home)

Search for Spock actually had a pretty good musical score.

When I was younger I used to prefer #3 over #2, because it moved faster and the battle against the invisible Klingon ship. I recently re-watched the whole series again, and saw #3 has held up much worse than I expected. And I've started appreciating the little bits in #2, such as Kirk doning the glasses while he negotiates his surrender to Khan, or the battle in the nebula, which is still the best action bit in the series.

Next would be "First Contact", as it is the most gung ho and fun of the bunch by far, and finally parts I and VI, which I agree are good but really don't like that much.

As for the rest, just beam them out of my deck. NOW.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

I watched 3 again today, and it's better than I first thought.
However, what is that pink thing with the collar that Chekov is wearing as they steal the Enterprise.

The Klingon stuff was poorly done. Their bridge looks like it was made on the cheap.

Oh, and Kirk gets over the death of his son pretty quickly.
