Re: Star Trek: First Contact

Well, regarding RLM, I think it boils down to taste. And since our tastes differ so much regarding this movie, it doesn't surprise me that we also disagree on RLM. His persona is funny and is intentionally over the top. In his star wars reviews, he even gathers some women slaves, the lines are ridiculous.

About the movie, it is quite clear why it completely sucks.

First of all, the characters are all off base. Completely contradicting the personas they did on the series. The plot is full of holes, shenanigans and outright silliness. Why does the queen travel through time only after she arrives Earth and gets her cube destroyed? Silly strategy. Why her sudden obsession with data? Completely vacuous. Why should data approve the trade? Such a dumb idea: why not help the queen destroy entire mankind so that he can be all human by himself (and all alone)? It's not even a dillema, it's just stupid. Why is Riker always smiling like a jackass? Why is the crew behaving so much like teenager trekkies down earth, and not like actual crew members of starfleet?

But I simply disconnected in the first scenes. The Enterprise, actually built to kick borg's backside, is denied permission to help the fleet 'coz Picard "may have psych issues". Then he decides just to ignore federation (again?!) and gets there in less than 10 seconds. With that start I was like "Ok this is gonna be worse than generations". And then with fleet ships being destroyed in the front screen, somehow they have to save defiant's crew. I guess all the other crews will enjoy that (specially considering that the defiant wasn't destroyed at all!!), oh no they won't coz they got borged ;).

Just ridiculous. The holodeck scene was bad, suddenly we realise that Picard doesn't care about his ensigns being borg, he just shoots them, and it's like a bad Aliens' homage.

And why oh why did Data pretend to shoot in the end? Why not just jump towards the queen and kick her ass? The script is completely bogus and it shows.

Re: Star Trek: First Contact

How can you like this piece of crap of a movie?!?

Go see RedLetterMedia's review of it, he just blows it off like the shit it is. Good grief, I was about to take you guys seriously, but then 3 stars and a half to this monstruosity?!? You lost it.
