And yeh, which of the TNG films was a cutting social commentary with interesting things to say?
I would argue that all of them have commentary. They just aren't new commentaries, we've seen them in Trek before.
I like that they took the effort to ask political questions in an ambiguous way in STID, but this is 2013, the internet has been around for a while now.
It's not like they were talking about things in that movie that people haven't already been talking about for years now.
In that way it is difficult to make a movie with a message, unless that message is about something that virtually nobody talks about.
