For me, if Patrick Stewart deems it worthy, I’m in on trust. 


I don’t have a lot of that left after his involvement in Nemesis....

Away and don't be daft. Don't hold one duffer up against all the good stuff he's been in. What a duffer mind you. It was bloody awful.

Kurtzman? I'm wary too but I'm trying to be a bit positive about it based on some of what I've seen so far.

 

That’s the one. Why am I thinking of Lindlehoff? Stupid brain. Kurtzman and all his Discovery co-conspirators that made the jump.

Just for similarities sake, what were the initial reviews for Discovery like?

All of the TNG films were embarrassing crap, though. First Contact was arguably the least-worst, but still crap.

Lacking urgency sounds like a positive when it comes to star trek. 

 

Exactly. I hate that nowadays so many people get 2 or 3 episodes into a show and moan about the slow pace. Just let shows breathe ffs.

I'd settle for camera work that doesn't make you want to vomit

They upped the pace and urgency drastically for the last few seasons of Game of Thrones and, well, there you go. For some shows, for certain types of story and styles of storytelling, letting the story breathe is a good thing.

Can’t agree with this.  First Contact is a cracking Trek film. I also have a soft spot for Insurrection even though it is basically a double length Next Gen episode.  Generations is ok, but yeah Nemesis was rightly a franchise killer.

"Hmm, Star Trek's like the navy isn't it? I know! Let's emphasise that by evoking the feeling of queasiness you get on ships at sea!"

I just assume the camera operators all off their heads on crystal meth

They want to show off how they can seamlessly track their special fx, that's about the height of it.

I think the camera stuff was combination of a misguided attempt at a "unique" visual identity, and an equally misguided attempt to spice up "boring" scenes. There was a conference room scene at one point where the camera was spinning around the table for the whole thing.

 

I have very low expectations for Picard.

Drinking game!

Take a shot every time the camera spins

Down your drink everytime it goes upside down

 

You'll be dead by the half way point :D

So I'm watching it tonight.

It's like the opposite of Lucas approach to talky scenes in the prequels. Stand there and say this while i point the camera at you. This is stand there and say this while we whirl around like demented monkeys. I haven't watched any of Discovery but if that's the state of it I never will.

Oh, that's the absolute least of its problems! Only watch out of morbid curiosity, otherwise avoid like the plague.

I don't know if I should have looked up what else akiva goldsman has got writing credits for and although a beautiful mind is in there, he also wrote screenplays for such classics as transformers dark knight, batman forever and batman and Robin, da Vinci code and insurgent as a few examples. Plus kurtzman is involved...

Just watched it.

 

It's....Interesting. Some nice little touches, the setup is pretty good. It's been fairly predictable so far. A decent start.

I like Generations. So there you go.

That’s the most TNG of the TNG films, for at least getting the feel of the series tonally correct, even if it’s essentially just an extended bigger-budget TV episode full of plot holes.

 

(Picard isn’t on Netflix? Bugger that, then.)
