Every Single Star Trek Lens Flare, Ever

Illustration for article titled Every Single iStar Trek/i Lens Flare, Ever

How many lens flares are there in the whole of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movies? A lot. And some crazy rounded them all up into two videos just to inform us all of the light bright insanity that is a lens flare.


Way back in 2009, right after the first press screening for the first Abrams' Trek we asked the director about his pension for all things shiny directed into the lens. He admitted that they were ridiculous, but part of the new look. And now we can't imagine the movies without the flare.


And here they all are, together forever. All 1,547 Star Trek lens flares. Thanks to Dylan Browne.

I know I'm not alone (though I'm definitely in the minority) in thinking that I LIKED the lens flares, even though they were used too much. Honestly, I would have preferred they be cut in half, but still quite present, because I think the look of it fits. It doesn't make anything cooler, but it is a look, consistently placed, that I feel works for the movie.
