All of the failings of Star Trek: The Motion Picture were erased with The Wrath of Khan. Even the uniforms are cooler. While The Motion Picture took place (in Star Trek time) only a few years after the conclusion of Captain Kirk's first five-year mission, this sequel takes place much further along in the future. James Kirk and his crew have concluded a second five-year mission, and Kirk is back in an admiral's post. The film begins with the Enterprise being destroyed in a conflict with …

STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN. I remember it well. Despite the predominantly youthful audience, you could still hear a pin drop during Spock's death scene. The film works so well on so many levels but the single greatest reason STII is revered by so many Trek enthusiasts worldwide is b/c it is, perhaps, the only Trek film to celebrate the passion of life and death so poignantly. If you haven't seen it, do so ... even if you're not of the Trek variety.

Who says that rebooting tranchises is a new idea? In a real sense, this is a reboot of the first Star Trek film, and it starts a trilogy of perhaps the best of the Star Trek films.

Take a classic television series with a dedicated fanbase, insert one of its most popular villains and toss a major motion picture budget at it and what do you get: "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." Perhaps the closest film in the "Star Trek" catalogue to the original televison series, "Khan" finds Kirk as the admiral in charge of assessing a green crew on routine training maneuvers. They happen to be aboard his old ship, the Enterprise, and the crew includes most of his key past crewmates. In …

Khan escapes being deserted and wants Kirks blood. Fantastic story and action of old age and sacrifice. No wonder it's seen as the best.

Ricardo Montalban as Khan, genetic madman
Why?  Because these two men saved Star Trek from what even Leonard Nimoy called and I quote, "A Beached Whale."      Star Trek: The Motion Picture for all intents and purposes only made it's money cause it was feeding a starving audience.  10 years after the original show wrapped up and a few years after the animated show ended.  People wanted a Star Trek fix and they got it, paid money to see it and well...  if you've seen the movie you know what …

Kirk grapples with getting old and an old foe returns for vengance. Great action and a nice touch of the old Star Trek show.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Blu-ray
I think everybody agrees that along with Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is the best of the now eleven Trek films.  However, it comes very short on the Blu-ray addition.  Unlike the rest of the films in this set, Khan is supposed to be fully restored in HD instead of remastered like the others, but what you get is a disc that looks like it belongs with your old DVD's.    In Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, we see Kirk going through what seems …

. . .this film is, by far, the greatest pure science-fiction movie ever made, regardless of whether or not one is normally a fan of "Star Trek".A quality drama, with good character development, wonderful special effects, a remarkable villain (played with incredible melodrama by Ricardo Montelban), and an unbelievably powerful and emotional ending (complete with the catharsis of a Greek tragedy) make this the most unforgettable movie in the "Star Trek" series -- and arguably one of the greatest Sci-fi …
