I just think that Baird's failure is partly responsible...

For those that have the new DVDs/Blu Rays, what was the commentary for Nemesis like?

I heard the original commentary from Stuart Baird on the DVD version, have yet to see if there's anything extra (commentary-wise) in the blu-ray version.

The movies do look quite good in blu-ray.

There are a lot of folks who felt that Stuart Baird "just didn't get it". But then again, by that measure, neither really did John Logan (writer). John Logan was a self-avowed Trek fan, but a lot of what he did was (admittedly) fanboyish. Still, despite those flaws (as well as trying to figure out how the Enterprise E gained five more decks), Nemesis remains my fave TNG film.

Did the fact that Shinzon was a clone of Picard actually add anything at all to the film? I mean, he could have been A.N.Other Romulan trying to destroy the Federation and the story would have worked just as well.

Or am I missing something?

For me, it didn't add the depth it was meant to.

But then we had also had episodes of the TV series that dealt with 'Picard meeting himself' ('Time Squared and ''Tapestry') which were both more successful in exploring Picard.

As and attempt at saying 'look at what could have been.....' I think it also fails because it's too simplistically written to really get into that issue.

The halfhearted talk Picard had with Data about fate did not add very much either, first because he was obviously mistaken and second because he has the mental strength to deal with Shinzon even in the case of remaining doubts.
Picard and Data vs. Shinzon and Lore, that would have been a probably more enjoyable "fight against your evil alter agos" flick.

I've always felt that B4 was a silly addition to the film and did nothing for the story, I agree with Kevin that Shinzon didn't give us any real insight into Picard, tapestry in my opinion was probably the best look at the rebellious Picard who later became the seasoned man we know in the series.

Like Observer mentioned, could have been interesting to have had a Romulan villain instead, after the hype of having Romulans as protagonists in the film they didn't really do anything. I think Sela could have made things interesting.

Haven't seen the commentry, am gonna have to take a look

I honestly don't want to diminish the man's struggles, and I certainly understand that there was probably more to his decline than just the aspects mentioned in the article...

That said, howlin's post made me laugh until tears were streaming down my cheeks. Not sure why, just the wording I suppose. But, thanks.
