Re: Now That John Logan Has Proven Himself, What Went Wrong With Nemes

If there's one conspiracy theory I believe in, it's that Paramount did everything to make sure Nemesis was a flop. They imposed Baird on the film because of one of those editing deals Jeyl already mentioned (Berman had no say there at all, he says), they cut back the budget (DVD commentary talks about how they had to make the engineering set smaller to cut budget and stuff like that), the promotion was horrible (either DVD commentary or random interview with Berman goes into details about this as well), and the cast sometimes talks about how they were already trashing the sets during filming because they knew they would never ever make a sequel to this film.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
