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.
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?
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.
Pizza rolls are far better then this movie
No, clearly he meant to say “Pizza rolls are far better. Then this movie… well, it’s a whole other pizza roll altogether.”
You know what they say, bad movies are a diamond dozen.
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.
Do you even lift?
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
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.
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.
You were right about being qualified for “gorilla warfare”. You’re a trained ape.
Wow, you must have an unbelievably small penis…
Who was this traitor responding too anyway?
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.
The green space cymbals represents Shinzon’s witty disposition…
I lost it at the green cymbals.
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!!
Oh. well ok then.
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.
this was like a million times better than the Titanic review
well it should be at least a couple hundred thousand times better than something that never happened.
u wot m8
You, sir, have done the previously unthinkable… you’ve brought to Star Trek Nemesis two things it lacked – entertainment and humor! Well done!!
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…
That’s the same argument with the Star Wars prequels: why clone a bounty hunter when you could have done Darth Maul instead?
you aint getting a pizza roll
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.
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.
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
The green symbols actually emit orgasmatronic radiation which makes the music more fun and fluid producing.
“…Close-ups of Marina Sirtis…” Cracks me up every single time! XD
Wow, “69 comments” = Sexy. But 70 = Cheasiest pizza roll, ever… Aka, Rick Berman’s penis…
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.
You forget, at least Khan had a REASON to want to kill Kirk.
Was Data ever really the 2nd most important character?
There were so many Data episodes in the series, so yes, he was.
At least this film brought us Tom Hardy.
What’s that song that plays around 7:12?
Mike, your editing is magic.
“I think the audience wants Star Trek to be an action movie.” – Beard
=( wow Beard. Hes been bewitched by hollywood executives
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.
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.
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.
I love the nitpicking so much
Ryker played a trombone, not a trumpet mate.
His name is Riker, not Ryker mate.
Shinzon reminds me of Dr. Evil…my God, that had me laughing like a retarded hyena for ten minutes straight.
does anyone know the background music which starts at 29:45? Always cracks me up
I really want a pizza roll
am i the only one finding the adds old when they come in the middle the video
Shinzon needed Picard to save his own life, not revenge.
I want a pizza roll
I watching this again, on the toilet, to many pizza rollsohhhhh god hoooly heeell!!!
I love your reviews and I want a pizza roll!!
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!!!!
Holy shit it’s Tom Hardy.
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
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).
I’ll take 90 seconds of silence over 30 seconds of commercial noise anyday.
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.
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,
Argo fuck yourself.
“Everybody bring your dunebuggies and beer!”
That would’ve made for a much more entertaining movie, actually.
Getting real tired of seeing commercials for that pile of hog shit “The Last of Us”. Real damn tired…
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.
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.
Data reappearence is possible using B4 body and Data’s memories…
Which is actually worse than killing him off because it defeats the meaning of the sacrifice.
Probably did to avoid getting a scratch on his ship. It’s not like the Romulans would repaint it or anything like that.
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.
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.”
“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?!?
Fuck you, Rick Berman!
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.
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.
I think my favorite part was Shinzon and…that Reman guy on Risa. And the engineer. Always love the engineer.
To be fair to Sirtis, she’s been dropping the Troi accent since season 3.
I’m not certain of that now captain
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.
it actually would have made for a better ending if picard sent worf on a suicide mission at the end.
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.
You ain’t getting a pizza roll.
No time like the present.
“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.”
lost my shit at “I’m a coward too”
I… I still LOVE Marina Sirtis
I also play a “trumpet” like Riker and mine actually IS made of plastic :]
can I have a pizza roll?
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.
“Sell” implies that someone would buy it.
That bit about spring break on Risa? Now I can’t stop thinking about some Star Trek themed expansion for Tropico…
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.
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.
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.
“When producers and actors start meddling with the movie and develop the story, it always comes out like a big Lincoln Log.”
To be fair that short, elderly man was Alexander DeLarge. Ass-kicking is pretty much his specialty.
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
That’s a trombone, not a trumpet. Check ur factz!
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.
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.
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.
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.
