Default The Greatest "Nemesis" Review Ever (HILARIOUS)

This had me rolling with laughter so much that my roommate had to make sure I was ok.

That.... was genius. I had forgotten how bad that movie was. I wonder if the guy doing the reviews was really I-Am-Zim?

I didn't realise it was so long a sequence - will need to come back to it and watch the other segments later!

Edit - that voiceover is starting to annoy me!!

Though part 1 is pretty on the ball - I agree I came out a bit depressed after seeing Nemesis myself. Hey, at least I didn't feel that way after the new film!

Maybe he can do one on how Star Trek (2009) copies Nemesis. What's worse a copy of a good movie, or a copy of a copy of a good movie?

I still don't see how people come to this conclusion. The only supporting point I can find are the similarities between Nero and Shinzon (which I think is just a coincidence due to the blatant genericness of them both)

What about the centarian slug scene? The internal look of the Narada? The dark clothed fashion of Narada's henchmen and Nero, with the dark clothed fashion of Shinzon and the Remans. Besides the shaved head, both Nero and Shinzon grew up laboring in Romulan mines, both desire to destroy the Federation.

Depends which film one thinks ended up the poorer job. In my book, Nemesis botched things far worse than Star Trek did. Of course, it also stole considerably more so that stands to reason.

Mileage will vary of course.

1. I think that was intended to be more of a homage than a copy. Who's to say Khan was the only one to know about what she slugs could do. Or that there aren't similar creatures in the universe.

2. The Narada's insides look nothing like the Schimitar.

3. The Remans and Shinzon wore very uniform, clean and shiny clothes. Nero's crew wore rags.

4. This is true, but Nero pulled it off better. And the mining, Shinzon was sent to a prison used for slave labor, while Nero actually mined for a career, with his own ship. As for destroying the Federation, isn't that when the inevitable goal of most Trek villains is? Sure, it's cliche, but it always seems to work. Not to mention motivation is different for both.
