I think that these are two good examples of emotional deaths that work and do not work. A scenes is not automatically good just because it is sentimental (or because it is not sentimental), it is...

In my opinion GEN is a bad movie because it feels so discentered. Some open threads from TNG are continued or closed and combined with the Ent-B and Kirk but it never congeals to a coherent whole...

Nope. Sentimental scenes are most of the times utter crap. Scenes that makes you actually think and reflect usually leave you fairly cold while you watch the movie. I already mentioned the prime...

Nope. The Nexus is paradise with an exit option. Sounds like two things to me. Now of course the intermingling of paradise and reality, that you can wish to exit the Nexus at any moment and place,...

I agree that GEN is anti-climactic and feels like a TV episode ... but then again the latter is not a problem to me as TNG never had the (potential for the) epic flair of TOS.

But complaining that...

Nope. These scenes are the climax of the movie, they contrast private bliss with public duty and thus highlight the actual choices which Picard and Kirk make (not to mention that they nearly would...

I disagree. The point of this scene as well as the previous one was to show the private bliss of Picard and Kirk. Without this there would have been no sacrificial choice between private bliss and...

"The episode wants to mark an important transition point, but it doesn't really feel like it does."

I think you are reading it too literally. I totally agree with you, of course the stupid anomaly does not matter directly, it only matters indirectly. Let's try to think about it from the perspective...

Don't tell me you wouldn't like to slay a Trekker who says he doesn't like Klingons with a nice, clearn Bat'leth sweep. ;)

Yep, I referred to the reboot as I am not familiar with the original but as you say the original seems to be in this political respect superior to the individual.

I'd rather say it should have been more like itself during its Seska moments or more like TUC or FC.
The problem of BSG is that its texture gave two thumbs up for the authoritarian leader-pair (they...

Orci and Kurtzman are often hired to work on reboots and as their movies make money they will probably continue to work along these lines. You really gotta blame the audience, if they don't mind...
