Re: What sunk the TNG movie franchise: Insurrection or Nemesis?
I marathoned all the Trek films this weekend. I'd put Insurrection and First Contact in my Top 5 of the movie series, below Wrath of Khan, The Motion Picture and Undiscovered Country. They're not amazing films or anything but they were highly enjoyable watches, whereas I found Voyage Home a chore for pandering/spoon-feeding too much to non-fans and Trek haters. Nemesis was very... flat. Not awful, just flat.
So, I maintain that Generations gets the hate that the other TNG films deserve. It's a film with no drive or purpose. The only film of the original 10 that I can say I dislike. The rest are all pretty watchable.
no drive or purpose? What does that mean? What great purpose does Insurrection have that Generations lacks? boob and pimple jokes?
"why oh why didn't I take the blue pill?"
