I guess taking into consideration it's QT's 'favorite' films of the year and not the 'best' it's cool that he has Star Trek at the top, but I don't think great entertainment should be the sole basis for judging the best film of the year. Favorite is fine, but even then, I think Up is a far better favorite film. All Star Trek did was reboot an ailing franchise, sex it up, cool it up, make it younger and more hip, then play it by the numbers.
The list is just a safe list. Maybe I'm just naive for wanting something provocative and off the wall from QT these days, but most of that list reads like People Magazines best movies of the year.
