If we trusted critic ratings, then how the hell does this happen.
as for the Star Trek movies...it was ranked at a Star Trek convention. The same source of the article One Trek Mind
led the survey-which named the woman captain as the "best" captain...in part because Picard was too much like Spock Image: http://www.startrek.com/uploads/assets/articles/OTM_Best_Crew1.png
what the writer had to say about results of survey:
Now, just because something has to come in last doesn't make it a bad film. Somebody has to bring up the rear! But others in the press (see Hollywood Reporter) felt the need to stir up some controversy.
Personally, I like the fact that we have Khan bookending the list here. As far as the inclusion of Galaxy Quest, it was none other than Denise and Mike Okuda who came to the mic to vouch for it. I'm okay with it on the list, as it really does represent the spirit of Star Trek, as well as being a love letter to the fans.
Before I move off this topic, I'll give my stock response when asked about Star Trek Into Darkness. The film has tremendous casting, dynamite action sequences and is propulsive and fun.
Bottom line is that STID was a film that Trekkies hated because it was basically a remake of the Wrath of Khan-which was #1 on the list. RT's rating is more indicative of the world at large-not the hardcore Trek fan. RT is neither a Trekkie nor comic fan site.(FWIW-I liked it and thought it was the best "summer" movie of 2013)
Where MoS intersects with this is that most comic fans preferred MoS to SR and by every metric-the broader audience preferred it to SR.SR is a movie that will never
have the love from hardcore fans and the audience disliked it enough that they rebooted the entire series.
Also- the owner of that page writes reviews on RT-he gave MoS an A-.
