Re: Did Insurrection kill the TNG franchise?
They rather oscillated between feeling visually (GEN) or thematically (INS) similar to the show and being big screen blockbusters (FC, NEM).
I can't agree with your assessment reference GEN's visual similarity to the televised version. For me, GEN brought by far the most cinematic visual presentation of TNG to the silver screen. The lighting and cinematography were outstanding IMHO.
