HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT?????? First contact was the best film of the lot!!!!!!
i have seen every movie more times than i care to count and each time the curse becomes more apparent with 2,4,6,8 being loads better each time and 3,5,7,9 being average or poor compared with the film before it
the first doesnt really count though as it is only with the sequals
well gotta go 2dTV is on l8r
If you look at our own poll here of the best movie, 8 is winning, 2 and 4 do fairly well too, only 6 isn't that well liked of the even ones. The odd ones generally do badly. I also have audience and gross takings figures there to compare them.
I suppose first contact was okay, as long as you don't wonder how a guy in a post-apocalyptic wasteland managed to create antimatter and collect dilithium crystals, borg breathing in space, an awful lot of egregious time travelling silliness, and a whole bunch of other things I couldn't be arsed enumerating.
My thesis, btw, is this: all star trek films are ****. Some, however, are so bad that the preceding and succeeding ones seem good by comparison. First Contact looks good compared to the godawful one after it that I can't remember the name of; equally, even Armageddon wouldn't look that bad if it came before or after #5.
