    I’m surprised you didn’t point out the horrible characterization of B-4 (he was made BEFORE Data, get it?  *sigh*) by Brent Spiner.  Awful, simply awful.

    • rich1

      Or the fact that he was called B-4 to begin with. When you are building/creating something would you really give it a name that denotes the fact that you think/know that it is inferior and will need an upgraded replacement?

  • jonathanjk

    You are aware there is an advert about the Vauxhall Ampera narrated by Patrick Stewart during an ad break in this review. It came on during the breakdown of the argo.

  • Steven

    Pizza rolls are far better then this movie

    • Roger Sarvis


      • Hubert Cumberdale

        No, clearly he meant to say “Pizza rolls are far better. Then this movie… well, it’s a whole other pizza roll altogether.”

      • butts

        You know what they say, bad movies are a diamond dozen.

  • Bikus Eucuk

    I can’t believe you invested so much time to author your aggressive little post there. The least you could do is correctly spell the things you claim to be trained to do.

    • jötnar

      Do you even lift?

  • seveneightyseven

    weird, the things you hate in this movie, violence, child labor and murder, are the ones you would love in the indiana jones one lol

    • honestly

      Yeah its weird, like when Im having a bowl of chicken soup, it really upsets me when it smells like gasoline and oil, and feels like icy cold air blasting me in the face and I’m barely able to stay on my seat, you figure since I love those things about snowmobiling that I should love them when Im eating soup.

    • ex1lepr0

      Well, that’s because Indiana Jones is about violence, murder and child labor. Star Trek isn’t really about that, it’s supposed to be about an idyllic future. It’s all about tone, my friend.

  • hobbified

    You were right about being qualified for “gorilla warfare”. You’re a trained ape.

  • Nicole Lupin

    Wow, you must have an unbelievably small penis…

    • Christopher Kulik

      Who was this traitor responding too anyway?

      • Tanath

        I’m not sure it’s real. I’ve seen the exact same post on three other websites over the last few years. Probably just copied and pasted.

  • Kenan

    The green space cymbals represents Shinzon’s witty disposition…

  • mc

    I lost it at the green cymbals.

  • shaun

    your advertiser have to choose their audience better, i would rather insert a screwdriver into my leg then sit through another 5 min fashion ad SHAM BLIP SHAM!!

  • Derrick Cryderman

    Oh. well ok then.

  • Papa Palpatine 2008

    Data should have brought two emergency transporters with him, set a phaser on overload and tossed it into the doomsday weapon, and then he and Picard could have beamed out before the big explosion. But no, they just had to kill him off. I call bullshit.

    • Tom Beres

      plot hooooooooles…..

  • thatguy

    this was like a million times better than the Titanic review

    • dontbethatguy

      well it should be at least a couple hundred thousand times better than something that never happened.

      • Matt DeCostanza

        u wot m8

  • Kyle Moore

    You, sir, have done the previously unthinkable… you’ve brought to Star Trek Nemesis two things it lacked – entertainment and humor! Well done!!

  • ex1lepr0

    Why would they clone Picard? He’s just a Star Fleet Captain…why not clone the entire Admiralty board? Or the President of the Federation for that matter…

    • rich1

      That’s the same argument with the Star Wars prequels: why clone a bounty hunter when you could have done Darth Maul instead?

  • Daniel Lee

    you aint getting a pizza roll

  • Domo

    Watching ST: NG again, in S1EP12 “The Big Goodbye” Data and Picard refer to cars as “automobiles, an ancient earth device”, and S1EP13 “Datalore”, as mentioned in the review already contains a two Data story. Conclusion, those lazy-ass hack writers didn’t even check first season half way before writing this garbage.

    • Joel S.

      Yeah, I remembered there were (possibly multiple) episodes where cars are referred to as something ancient and ineffective, even kinda something that only historians would know about, not something they keep around in their shuttle bay.

  • funwithphobias

    I always wondered why Data looked different in this movie. I just realized it’s because Brent Spiner gained weight, and seeing him in that jumpsuit is hilarious

  • ben

    The green symbols actually emit orgasmatronic radiation which makes the music more fun and fluid producing.

  • Dan

    “…Close-ups of Marina Sirtis…” Cracks me up every single time! XD

  • Pizza Roll

    Wow, “69 comments” = Sexy. But 70 = Cheasiest pizza roll, ever… Aka, Rick Berman’s penis…

  • pizzaroll_bunny

    You know, in real life, Patrick Stewart lost all the hair off the top of his head at age 19. This video explains it all:

    That said, in the show all the scenes showed him losing his hair over time as you said, so I guess it’s a legit critique.

  • Blarg

    You forget, at least Khan had a REASON to want to kill Kirk.

  • Naes

    Was Data ever really the 2nd most important character?

    • Alex Lee

      There were so many Data episodes in the series, so yes, he was.

  • Monique Jones

    At least this film brought us Tom Hardy.

  • TheInstantGamer

    What’s that song that plays around 7:12?

  • charlie

    Mike, your editing is magic.

  • Joshua Wilson

    “I think the audience wants Star Trek to be an action movie.” – Beard

    =( wow Beard. Hes been bewitched by hollywood executives

  • Bahareh Khosravi

    Maybe it’s like you said with Indiana Jones, that when you don’t have a good character, it becomes the uniform. That’s why Picard is bald, because the writers can’t develop good characters.

  • D-man9000

    I blame DS9 and Voyager for Star Trek’s death. More so Voyager. But the kind of all over the place writing of DS9 was still pretty bad.

  • GraysonHunt

    Maybe when the filmakers needed a picture of Pircard in Starfleet Academy, Shinzon’s actor had already shaved his head so they just left it. This might just be an example of lazy filmmaking rather than fear the audience wouldn’t get it.

  • GoodSirOfBrodie

    I love the nitpicking so much

  • Terrets

    Ryker played a trombone, not a trumpet mate.

    • Charles Petrosky

      His name is Riker, not Ryker mate.


    • Dragon Nexus


  • djphenaproxima

    Shinzon reminds me of Dr. Evil…my God, that had me laughing like a retarded hyena for ten minutes straight.

  • Angelo1990e

    does anyone know the background music which starts at 29:45? Always cracks me up :-)

  • Kronon

    I really want a pizza roll

  • Jay Lehmann

    am i the only one finding the adds old when they come in the middle the video

  • Congslop

    Shinzon needed Picard to save his own life, not revenge.

  • Congslop

    I want a pizza roll

  • bachattacks

    I watching this again, on the toilet, to many pizza rollsohhhhh god hoooly heeell!!!


    I love your reviews and I want a pizza roll!!

  • G. Jardoness

    In seeing the movie posters, one after another, on the “Star Trek Reviews” page, from “Generations” to “Nemesis”, I couldn’t help but shout; No — Dear God, No — For love of all things good and holy, No — NO, NO, NO, PLEASE, MAKE, IT, STOP!!!!

  • Pizza Roll

    Holy shit it’s Tom Hardy.

  • Ads fucken suck

    Ads in the middle of your videos?? At the start and end I can handle, but just having them chucked in the middle is bullshit! Also, gimme pizza roll

    • Fortyseven

      Seems random. I saw zero ads this time around. But I’ve seen others with two or three breaks (sometimes with multiple ads each break).

  • lol

    I’ll take 90 seconds of silence over 30 seconds of commercial noise anyday.

  • romulanrabbit

    FYI, Patrick Steward went bald at age 19. He wore a hair piece often in his early acting career. Nemesis still sucked though, so whatever.

    • lolIkeDavis

      I would say The actor going bald at 19 is irrelevant. The show established on multiple occasions that the CHARACTER had hair as a cadet. So the movie making him bald was inconsistent with the show,

  • babea44713

    Argo fuck yourself. :P

  • Sus

    “Everybody bring your dunebuggies and beer!”

    That would’ve made for a much more entertaining movie, actually.

  • guestovich

    Getting real tired of seeing commercials for that pile of hog shit “The Last of Us”. Real damn tired…

    • slowbrosif

      I’ve got ad block on and I’m forced to wait 60 seconds without an ad. I’d rather do that than watch an ad for a shitty video game movie.

  • Naudious

    They shouldn’t have killed Data, he would have been a really cool character to show up in future TV Series, if there were any.

    • Guillermo Cisbani

      Data reappearence is possible using B4 body and Data’s memories…

      • Alex Lee

        Which is actually worse than killing him off because it defeats the meaning of the sacrifice.

        • Jordan

          soo true

  • Alex Lee

    Probably did to avoid getting a scratch on his ship. It’s not like the Romulans would repaint it or anything like that.

  • Guest

    My favorite Plinkett Star Trek review, hands down. So much good humor in here. In my personal opinion on the TNG films, yes I do agree that the storytelling was not good. Having begun to watch The Next Generation series, I can safely say that the stories in the movies were not as memorable or as interesting as the two-parters on TNG, like “Best of Both Worlds” or “Unification”. However, you have to admit that the TNG films are, from a visual perspective, pretty OK. The bridge of the Enterprise-E is really cool, the set design is great (except for Insurrection), and the effects (again, except for Insurrection) are remarkable. Still, I don’t know why they didn’t get actual Star Trek writers (the ones from the show) to help with the story and scripts. Maybe the writers didn’t wanna have anything to do with the films, or maybe the producers/directors didn’t feel the need for them, I don’t know. I wonder if JJ will do a “TNG Reboot” film…probably not, but you never know.

    • Alex Lee

      Ugh, that won’t be for another ten years at least. Any sooner and it’ll have the same fate as “The Amazing Spider Man.”

  • Al

    “That’s where I want you to look.” *TAP-TAP-TAP* “And it’s amazing.”
    I’m sorry, but is this guy directing a Star Trek film or a FAMILY PORTRAIT?!?

  • jedidethfreak

    Fuck you, Rick Berman!

  • Dr Crusher’s Thrombic Friend

    When I went to see this with friends at the theater, I fell a sleep until they woke me at the credits. As they were filling me in on what I missed I thought they were completely bullshitting me, especially about the Troi rape.

    Only years later after catching it on T.V. I realized they told me absolute truth. Awful, awful movie.

    • Yukonses

      I bought this DVD because I’m a Star Trek fan. I fell asleep during my first viewing. I fell asleep during my second viewing. I ended up selling the DVD at a garage sale, still not sure how it ended.

  • Kevin Weaver

    I think my favorite part was Shinzon and…that Reman guy on Risa. And the engineer. Always love the engineer.

  • Alex Lee

    To be fair to Sirtis, she’s been dropping the Troi accent since season 3.

    • Capt Jelico

      I’m not certain of that now captain

  • Alex Lee

    If this movie was about Picard feeling the empty nest after seeing Riker and Troi start a new life and everyone else transfers off, this movie would have been so much better. I guess Shinzon is a powerful super-villain; he’s able to destroy the plot of the movie.

  • Jordan

    it actually would have made for a better ending if picard sent worf on a suicide mission at the end.

  • Magnus Ironfist

    I’m guessing it was some time in the 21st Century when transparent green space plastic was deemed to be a superior material for traditional instruments.

  • Chris Sunshine Campbell

    lost my shit at “I’m a coward too”

  • Lloyd Hughes

    I… I still LOVE Marina Sirtis

  • SkaMP

    I also play a “trumpet” like Riker and mine actually IS made of plastic :]

  • Ryan Menchion

    can I have a pizza roll?

  • FullMetalBiceps

    While I’ll admit, Janeway started getting ballsy with her “do what it takes to get home” attitude, to be fair, the scene where she’s executing those people is a false history. Additionally, the episode where she says the Prime Directive is rescinded is about the Omega particle. She makes it pretty clear that she’s authorized by Starfleet to take whatever action necessary to deal with the situation, even rescinding the PD.

  • Alex Lee

    “Sell” implies that someone would buy it.

  • Pissernacht

    That bit about spring break on Risa? Now I can’t stop thinking about some Star Trek themed expansion for Tropico…

    Viva, Presidente!

  • Ted

    The backwards R and E in trek and nemesis bother me at the beginning, and the way it looks like the enterprise is venting tails of dry plasma every time ‘she’ jumps to warp. I miss those rainbow coming out the nacelles from back in wrath of khan.

  • AndyAce83

    Pizza roll.

  • bruce wayne

    Shinzon would have been more convincing as a person with a condition that causes baldness if you couldn’t see his hair stubble throughout half of the damn movie.

  • Alex Lee

    The whole Wesley thing would have worked better if he wasn’t wearing a uniform, like he was just visiting that day as a civilian, telling stories about all the thing he’d seen with the Traveler. That might have been a cool miniseries, actually.

    But now, he’s the Chief Engineer of the Titan or whatever. Seems to be completely out of character for him considering all the things he’s done.

  • Mr.Logical

    “When producers and actors start meddling with the movie and develop the story, it always comes out like a big Lincoln Log.”

    Not always :)

  • Joel Farrelly

    To be fair that short, elderly man was Alexander DeLarge. Ass-kicking is pretty much his specialty.

  • Like Icare

    Holy shit! It’s the space cymbals!

    “Another property of these materials is that they conduct sound and
    elastic waves very uniformly, meaning they could lead to new acoustic
    metamaterials, Fang says, that could help control how waves bend over a
    curved surface.”

  • Ultimaniacx4

    That’s a trombone, not a trumpet. Check ur factz!

  • Ultimaniacx4

    Because he kinda shoots himself in the foot every video. You can tell at the end of every video he tries to make some huge, insightful point that gives a general view over a really broad subject. He doesn’t know how to just make a simple self contained review without going on a huge analytical diatribe about the film industry as a whole. Because of that, it’s probably hard for him to keep finding things to say that he hasn’t already said in some other video.

    • Lat

      It’s because the Plinkett reviews take, like, two months to film and edit. They’re a massive undertaking especially considering it’s just Mike and Jay working on it. All on top of HitB, BotW, and they’re other shorts. SO HOW ABOUT YOU FUCKERS GET SOME INSIGHT AND STOP BEING SO SELFISH. FUCK.

      • Ultimaniacx4

        If it was that much work to do then maybe he shouldn’t have gave a big list of movies he wanted to review at the end of Indian Jones. And with those reviews getting hundreds of thousands and sometimes millions more views than anything else on the site, I’d think it’d be worth it. Lastly, calm down. It was a simple question and observation. Not some kind of attack on anything.

        • Lat

          I was joking about being fired up. It was a thing. And that list he gives was a play on if he entertained everyone’s suggestions for movies he should review. People comment all the time, “Review this one! Do this movie!” without realizing how much work goes into making just one review.
