INS is just a bloated double episode full of classic Trek tropes. Not good, not bad, not really a movie.
I enjoyed Insurrection more than I enjoyed Generations, which was a mediocre single episode spread so thin you could see through it. (Also a dreadful waste of Malcolm McDowell.)

No, but they should save their box tops. Mail in 50 of those and receive a Star Trek™ Official Coloring Book!

Oooo! Unfortunately (for them), it's an Abramsverse Trek coloring book.

Sorry there, folks...

If we are to ignore STiD's flaws on grounds that old Trek had many of the same flaws are we also expected to ignore what STiD gets right given that much of old Trek got it right too?

Are we allowed to have any opinion of the movie at all?

Any opinion at all?! Of course not - don't be silly. You may have your own opinions, but I don't want to see you trying to make off with anybody else's.

I keep wondering about this argument. What makes a film not a mediocre single episode spread over two hours?
