Re: What sunk the TNG movie franchise: Insurrection or Nemesis?

That movie would have been a box office smash!

Generations remains the only film of the original 10 I can't warm to. I really like the intro sequence with the Enterprise-B and a few of Picard's scenes in the early stages of the movie but as soon as Picard is beamed down to the planet I zone out and the movie just gets duller and more absurd. It features the least dramatic final act I've ever seen. And we have to sit through it twice .

It's a film that was obviously rushed out. First Contact gets right everything Generations got wrong. Insurrection is flawed but gets my respect for feeling like a TNG episode and is very well directed. Nemesis is just mediocre. I don't passionately enjoy it or hate it, it's just kinda there.
