I really do not like Nemesis... but The Motion Picture is a real snooze fest. Twice I tried to watch it, once with my best friend and once alone... and I fell asleep both times before the movie was through. No joke, and I NEVER fall asleep during movies. 


Some of those scenes are just WAY too long.

Nemesis.  Not completely unenjoyable, but definitely at the bottom of my favorite list.

Insurrection is the only Star Trek film I actually do not like.


 


It's a flabby, corny, watery mess that starts tepid and ends even worse. The greatest sin of INS is that it is a multi-million dollar feature film in a proud move franchises that was weaker than 75% of the one-hour television episodes.


I view INS as an unforgiveable mess. TFF, TMP, and NEM are light-years better than it.

 I don't like insurrection because it brought down Nemesis.

INSURRECTION was entertaining popcorn fare.
If THE FINAL FRONTIER can find ANY respect
from fans of this franchise, then absolutely, I'll
stand by INSURRECTION. Both times at the helm,
that Jonathan Frakes, he did alright ...

They're all watchable at best, but Final Frontier is my choice. It had no redeeming qualities whatsoever other than the title.

Insurrection is great, Nemesis is flawed, The Motion Picture is a sleep aid but The Final Frontier is just a laughably horrible movie with nothing admirable or entertaining about it.


So, five-card stud, nothing wild. And the sky's the limit....

Nemesis


 


Killing Data was illogical.


Had Data been killed saving Picard it would have been better.

Insurrection! Starfleet and the Federation Counsel are corrupted and the starship captain knows better than they do? Not to hold anything against Picard, but how can youa ssume ANYTHING Starfleet or the Federation do is morally correct afterwards, from Picard's view.


Was it really as black and white as the only option to study metaphasic radiation is to do it the Son'a way? And is really Starfleet so impatiant that they'd rather associate with the Son'a then figure the problem out on their own for a few years? The So'na are peaceful and could have been spied on for sveral more years if need be.


The entire plot stinks of Section 31. That idea makes the plot bearable anytime I watch INS.

It's true. Just the basic premise doesn't hold up under even the most tame scrutiny. But, lots of Trek films have weak premises (not as weak as INS, though). The failure of this movie was a forced attempt to make this a "fun, lighthearted adventure" mixed with themes and situations that should have been very serious. The TNG crew does't do "fun" well to begin with.


Second, everything just felt artificial and totally out of character:


Picard's objections to the whole thing go directly against his attitudes during the TV series (particularly in the episode where they're sent to relocate the American Indian colony)


Data, once again played for goofy laughs more than being a legitimate character. Corny, "wink wink" humor that feels forced and out-of-place, like singing songs to Data and making pimple jokes.


The worst "tolken space battle" in Star Trek franchise history. I mean that...the very worst.


Terrible, convoluted villians who are only one step above the Ferengi in terms of evil motivations and pure menace


Sappy, crappy forced sentiment that is horrible even for TNG


The worst "last scene" in Trek movie history..."say goodbye Data" "Remember to play a little every day." UGHH I felt like I was watching the end of a Great Space Coaster episode. Christ.


A totally improbable plot concerning a holoship and a forced relocation and god only knows what else. Seriously, people complain about plot holes in the LAST movie...??? Watch this thing objectively and the whole movie is one giant plothole.


 


 


Also, there's no tension or drama. I mean NONE. Even in TVH there are moments that have you on the edge of your seat with excitement and awe. This had none of that. It built up no excitement at all. "Oh no sir, the Isolytic subspace weapon created a tear in space and it's going to swallow us up. Don't worry though. We just eject the doohickey and blow it up and we're okay." "Oh no sir, these little drones are shooting tags at us and *gasp* beaming us away." "Oh no sir, Anij is caught in a cave in...but she'll be fine in 3 minutes." "Oh no sir, Data went haywire...but don't worry, we'll sing a British Tar to him and he'll be back to normal."


It really was a heap of crap. Usually even the worst Trek movies (TFF, NEM, etc) are still better than 80% of anything else Hollywood pust out. That's just not the case here.

I must admit that Data is problematic, for INSURRECTION.


To those new to TNG, certainly at the time, can just you imagine all
the confusion? Here's this albino named Dana with slicked-back hair
who's terrorizing a small village. Then he sings a horrible song with his
friends trying to stop him in a space shuttle, with him still acting up ...


Then, later on ... it's revealed that he's actually bionic, or maybe is a cyborg,
or something, because he has robotic parts. Apparently, he's like Doc Oc, in
that the implants made him crazy, or something, when he got wounded. Now,
instead of getting punished after he's caught, everything's all fine, somehow.


The worst though, is when Dana the Bionic Albino starts stalking a pale, young boy,
who's obviously creeped out by him. Instead of Dana's bald boss calling him on it,
he blames it on the kid's dad being Amish. So, this middle-aged Albino pulls a
Whacko Jacko and starts playing with the kid, like ... every chance he gets, now.


Were I new to TNG, none of this would sit very well with me, I have to admit.
