I can see we're 3 of the 10 people that liked Nemesis. I too liked it. It was my 2nd favorite TNG film (behind FC of course) and probably around 8th or 9th place overall (I definitely put Generations, Insurrection and TFF behind it, in that order). Nemesis and First Contact are the only 2 TNG movies that felt like they belonged in a movie theater and not on TV. It's not a perfect film, I agree with some of the complaints. PST makes some good points. The cinematography isn't nearly as good--that was one highlight I thought of Insurrection that was lost here. I agree with Lance, there are some elements that foreshadow the Abramsverse movies. It has an overemphasis on action. The opening scene (sans credits), an almost overwhelming enemy vessel in the Scimitar (which in some ways reminded me of the Narada--or vice versa I guess--with it's sharp angles and dark interior--and of the Vengeance in STID) and I even noticed a couple of lens flares (ok I just threw that in there for fun--there were more in the way of lens flares in Nemesis then previous productions but nothing like the light explosion that would be Star Trek ). I also eye rolled the whole dune buggy scene and some elements of the B4 storyline. But I thought some of the other characters had more to do. The battle scene was one of the best in the movie franchise. I remember hearing some complaints about TUC and FC that the battle scenes were ok but were lacking in dimension and intensity. Here you get a 3 dimensional battle that is sustained and intense. And the ramming scene was one of my favorites (I know some people complain about the science of that scene but how can you not like the visuals). I also like some of the themes, though I wish they were better developed. They were trying to pose a philosophical question would Picard be just like Schinzon in the same environment due to their shared genetics---but it wasn't fully developed. So yeah, I liked Nemesis, I have it on Blu-Ray and watch it. I've noted in the past I wonder how much of the hate it gets has to do with 2 things. One it was released at the worse possible time against huge competition. Paramount should have released it when there was a bit less competition. They were going against Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and a 007 film. Idiotic of Paramount to release it at the time and as a result it didn't fare well at the box office, so it's easy to hate because of it's poor box office returns. Also I sometimes wonder if group think plays into it. Everyone else hates it so it must be bad sort of thing. Now, to be clear, I'm not dismissing peoples complaints, or that some people would hate it even if it were the number 1 film for 3 weeks and considered at least an average film. There are some Trekkies for whatever reason dislike TWOK, FC or Star Trek (2009). But I wonder if some people had watched it without ever hearing a word about it might hate it less, or even maybe like it a little? Well, it's a question impossible to answer (unless you can find someone that lived in a cave for the last 16 years).
