Prior to seeing the new Star Trek, four of us have decided to watch through the whole series of movies prior to seeing the new movie. We have only gotten through the first three at this point, and, so that the rest of you can watch the movie in peace without going through these potentially painful steps, here are short synopses as well as my rating of the movies (based on an unexplained, though probably obvious, scale of of 7-13 A.C.s).
Star Trek: The Motion Picture
Kirk takes the Enterprise. They fight a cloud. Boredom ensues.
Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan
Bugs go in ears. Mind Control. Kirk screams "KHAAAAAANNNNN!!!" Hilarity Ensues. Spock dies?
Star Trek: The Search for Spock
Kirk takes the Enterprise, and blows it up. Klingon falls in lava. Hilarity Ensues. Spock lives?
I hope I didn't spoil anything (is it possible to spoil movies that are at least 25 years old?).
