I agree that VOY resembles TNG more than anything else. It wanted to be TNG minus DS9, making it the 'safe' TNG. It was TNG without 'Sins of the Father', 'Reunion' or 'The First Duty'. TNG minus...

To my knowledge, STII is the only film that's ever been remastered, and quite extensively because the negative was in poor shape. But they did something weird with the color timing and everything...

Well hopefully it's fun enough to justify the fact that we keep coming back to revisit it. At least you and Kevin with your 20 disc boxsets have an excuse in that you can shrug and say "oh well." I...

The 2001/04/whatever DVD is the right one for listening to the Moore/Braga commentary. The BluRay has it as well. I don't recall who's on the BluRay's 'newer' commentary, and I have yet to listen to...

Where have I actually told you any such thing? You merely took license to assume as much because it was convenient for you (Here's just another example of the behavior I'm talking about). Not...

At the risk of possibly sticking my foot in my mouth (which you've got me wanting to do by now anyway), ST isn't some artsy-fartsy pretentious experimental foreign flick.

I've never connected the Xmas ornament with Soran's supernova. I always read it as something nonspecific that was supposed to clue Picard in, like realizing his own fantasy was too bright and...

On a blank sheet of paper, there's no reason Kirk's and Picard's meeting has to take the form of a cooking show. Let alone have that cooking show take place within the final act of the movie.

Definitely TNG.

The opening 15 minutes play out like a parallel universe, or essentially the original series setting viewed through a TNG filter. Indeed it's always been my perception that the two...

To address both yours and Martok's points about the TNG movies, I think they're less popular because they remain episodic and don't represent a substantial change in format from the TV series,...

I've never been fond of 'All Good Things'. I don't deny it was a well-directed two hrs of television, but to me there isn't anything in it to justify the excess of sentimentality. And I've never...

That's the thing, it didn't even look like he was getting flamed that badly even after the things he said. Go figure.

I avoided John Carter, but I think I told you my friend liked it. So it's...

I've only had time to skim the threads, however it actually does look like Orci tried to instigate the flame-throwing himself. Even the fans who called him on it seemed reluctant to assume it was...

Yeah, the last film kinda felt like 007's Quantum of Solace to Casino Royale. It was a smaller film as far as moving things forward.
