As I re-review each movie to present a more in-depth analysis of each movie, I will update these rankings. Links to each review on Captain Jon's Reviews will also be available. Many of my ratings will likely remain the same but it should be noted that the biggest change is with Star Trek: The Motion Picture, a movie I've grown to appreciate more over the years.

Though many of the issues remain the same (lack of characterization and a slow pace), The Motion Picture benefits from big ideas not tackled in any Star Trek film since. As a result, The Motion Picture has leapfrogged over both Star Trek: Insurrection and Star Trek Nemesis, though when those reviews are revisited we'll see if that remains the same.
