5. Star Trek (2009)
Star Trek was dead and after Enterprise limped off the screen and Nemesis withered at the box office, this “reboot” brought Trek back and delivered a highly engaging and superbly cast adventure. J.J. Abrams recruited a special collection of actors who all nailed their roles and stepped with ease into the Starfleet boots of giants.
It felt for the first time that a Trek movie didn’t have a small budget and could compete on a bigger scale, with finances and ambition equivalent to many of the biggest cinematic blockbusters.
