    Count me in as some who likes all 4 TNG movies. I like Generations just a hair more than First Contact. Nemesis was good, but felt unfinished to me. Still enjoyable though. I like Insurrection more each time I see it. I don't consider myself a diehard trekker, but I have seen every episode of TNG in the past 3 months on DVD.

    So is it a "fatty" case or not. I ask because I just saw a Nemesis commercial and the case looked like a fatty 2-disc case.

    Nemesis has some good action and great effects, but it has a weak villain, Shinzon, and the whole thing is just too gloomy, it's the least of the Next Gen films in my opinion.

    Insurrection seems like a whole lot more fun after seeing this one, and an underrated entry in the Trek series, F.Murray Abraham was an enjoyably over-the-top villain.

    The superb 'First Contact' remains my favorite Next Gen movie.


    ps.X2 director Bryan Singer can be spotted as a crew member at about 83mins in.

    DVD File was pretty impressed with it's video quality. They gave it a full bar on their scale rating. I'd like to check this one out just for the reported video quality impressions. Reference is what I'm reading.

    Also, the audio didn't do too bad either.

    I'll rent first then decide.


    Later!

    I'm surprised at the praise for Generations here. As a member of the TrekBBS, Generations is considered the bastard child of the TNG movies and almost ranks right up there with Star Trek V amongst Trekkies.

    Anyone think Bryan Singer was just keeping a close eye on Patrick Stewart? Making sure he signed the contract to be in X2? [​IMG]

    Maybe he's a big enough fan to do a Trek film. [​IMG]

    Why does this release not include a text trivia track? That feature is the main reason that I have repurchased Treks 2, 3 and 4. Is there a better DVD edition of Nemesis waiting in the wings?

    Warning Spoilers may be contained in this posting.
    Here is my 2 cents on this film.

    I seen this film at the theater and to be honest was very let down. Was it the worst film in the series? well in my opinion it maybe was not the worst but the least original. It seemed to lift the best scenes from the other (and better) Star Trek films in the series to make a best of Star trek but acted out with a different cast. Spock dying and comming back to life (Star Trek 2 & 3), Data dying and comming back to Life (Nemesis, Data transfered all of his experiances to the other android durring the film which leaves a big opening for Data's personality to return if they ever make another). Kirk having a mid-life crisis (Star Trek 2 thinking he is old) Picard having a mid-life crisis (Acting more like Kirk, taking risks that picard normaly would never do, The vehicle Chase is a good example) To me Picard did not seem like well, Picard So I figured he must also be having a mid-life crisis. Khan was a bad guy that chewed up every scene he was in, Schinzon well seemed to well Just appear in every scene he was in ( a very weak foe for Picard).

    I guess I was looking for something Original instead of lifted from another film. There were parts I enjoyed but overall I would rate this one rather low. I do not blame the Director, writer and Cast I blame a producer that is ignoring everything Roddenberry created and trying to make it into something it is not.

    The producer ignored much of the Back story of the Trek universe with Enterprise and that Show is on Life Support as they have alienated the audience that would normally watch. Star Trek has the potential to be great or at least good again if they get the right creative force behind it. It has been reported that the Borg will Appear on Enterprise in the Finally, I myself have not watched the show since the first 3 episodes aired but if this is true he once again ignores the fact that the Best TNG episodes were Borg episodes and up until that point it was mentioned that the Borg never encountered humans until th 24th century. Ok I am done with my ranting and before anyone starts arguing with my post just remember I am not flaming this is just one mans opinion.

    I'll say this much: Necrosis had one of the best trailers ever made for a Star Trek film. I wish the guy making the trailer had made the film.

    I dunno John, Necrosis sounds a lot scarier than the wimpy title they next came up with, Nemesissy, which eventually got shortened to Nemesis in case people got confused. [​IMG]

    I have a question, how did you all get your copies of this movie before the release date? I am in Canada and the official release date is May 20th.

    I missed it in the theater so I cannot wait to see it on my screen.
