4. Beyond (2016)
The post viewing buzz for this movie hasn’t worn off yet one year on and I think I love it! Yes, the villain and it’s scheme is pretty standard and forgettable but this movie delivered on what I hoped a Justin Lin movie would do – use the cast! The acting talent in these movies is sensational and this latest entry gives them all moments to shine and come together in a way that Star Trek movies do at their best.
The tributes to Leonard Nimoy are well done and the sorrow at the loss of Anton Yelchin give this story a very melancholy feel and make it feel truly special.
