Well, I really like Search for Spock, The Voyage Home and especially The Undiscovered Country. Final Frontier, while having interesting ideas, is what I would call a terrible film.

As for the "standards of today" - you clearly have a much higher opinion of them than I do. I think the standard is much, much lower than those films I mentioned above.

As far as Abram's film not having anything to do with the show or characters- You do understand that was supposed to be an alternate universe, right?
Yeah, I know the pathetic plot mechanism to smooth over the transition and ignore canon. The problem is that the characters are the same and yet they're nothing like them - except for Bones which is the only acting highlight in the film. A smarter way would have been to go with a new cast - but then I suppose they couldn't profit from utilising the old names.

It was stupid and unnecessary, just like the film itself.
