Well, at least the whole duck blind scene was fun to watch.
IIRC, they even mixed up Crusher and Troi in one scene, and they forgot to replace the giant bluescreen effect behind the collector set
I thought INSURRECTION was fine. Not terrible, but not great either. It's just a passable film that works in the tradition of a TNG episodic adventure.
I don't think they forgot, but rather the effect they intended to go for turned out to be too complicated for the f/x crew, so whatever was originally planned was dropped. It's too bad ILM was not available.
At least you didn't take them to see TFF?
What's funny is that these guys may live like primitives but they have the means to empty the lake!! I mean it doesn't seem like it would serve any purpose except the one in the movie. Or maybe when Miss it's-beneath-my-condition-to-row-the-boat-I-am-in lost an earring or something...
Ouch! That must've been painful. I didn't bring anyone, but I remember overhearing people who were super-disappointed Insurrection wasn't another First Contact. They didn't know about the even/odd curse and found out about it the hard way.
I hate to say it (because I like TMP, TSFS, and TFF), but never show your "cool" friends who aren't fans an odd-numbered Old Trek movie or one that's divisible by five, as The One you're trying to covert them with. Just don't do it...
Untrue. For better or worse, the blue of that set was a conscious design choice. (The Son'a ship has blue lighting elsewhere, and the collector set had greenscreens in place for effects work, not blue.
when picard introduces them to anij and the other guy.
sirtis commented on the apparent lack of a space background effect instead of the blue one, and asked frakes if they forgot to put the effect in. I remember frakes didn't respond. but it's been years since I watched it with commentaries.
Ah jeez, that's just them nodding in a different order to him saying their names.
Anij is the most bumptious character in the Trek canon. She alone makes it unwatchable to the point where the film's other flaws kind of just blur together.
Okay, the firm-boobs-joke stands out for its sheer awfulness.
Yeah, and you wouldn't find that confusing IRL? I would.
Yes, I find her totally insufferable. That's exactly the kind of people that I'd like to see taken down a peg or two.
I took my girlfriend, who I'd been dating for about a month, and two other couples.
I thought I was going to be a hero, converting Star Trek fans en mass for future generations.
I was incorrect.
It could have been worse. Imagine if it was "Nemesis".
I liked Nemesis about 100 times better than Insurrection, though.
Well, there's no accounting for taste, which is a good thing, there's more than enough accounting in our lives as it is!!!
That must've happened alot - non fans having seen or heard good things about the previous great movie from their Trekkie friend, only to be in a cinema sat next to their squirming Trek loving friend, angrily watching The Final Frontier, Generations, Insurrection or Beyond.
I rented Nemesis on dvd and watched it it my friends when it came out, most of them have never watched a Star Trek movie again.
There were Trekkies who loved Into Darkness so much that they felt confident dragging friends to the next one?
