We have taken some photos of "Star Trek: Generations". They represent actual movie quality.
This review is from: Star Trek: Generations (DVD) awesome dvd it was in good condition. i love it it's great and way good movie i will cherish long
Having just seen "Insurrection", I enjoyed this dvd much more. Better flow, and more action. I wish they put the movie trailers on this DVD like they did on "First Contact". I wish they would also put a Full Screen option on the Star Trek DVDs. The DVD format really brings out the clarity, sound and special effects of this film. PS: I like the uniforms in this movie far greater than the newer ones, if anyone cares.
this was a great movie. I recomend this to anyone who likes star trek the next generation.
This movie, up to 1994, has to be the best of all the Startrek movies. Thestoryline was keen, the acting was supurb, the special effects awesome, andData made me laugh so hard that I almost spilled my Coke all over thepeople in front of me!
What a terrible script this movie had. It's astonishing they actually produced it. One of the most glaring things about it was the use of the Nexus. Plot-holes galore. A disappointing team-up between Shatner and Stewart. Another annoying thing is the lack of consistency--note the uniform changes every five minutes.
This really should be at number 4 but because Nemesis had more memorable scenes this missed out by only a whim. Generations is like an extended episode of the Next Generation series. However the difference really is the acting. The acting in Generations is probably second only to first contact but it looses out major in the script department and direction. (PREVIEW LEFT UNFINISHED)
STAR TREK: GENERATIONS serves neither the original TREK series or the'Next Generation' crew very well, but producer Rick Berman had a nearlyimpossible task: to satisfy the fans demanding a Kirk/Picard story, andto please the followers of the popular spin-off. Berman had no desireto see the original cast in any more features (it would be difficultenough to provide ample screen time for his OWN large cast), butParamount demanded that he create a 'transition' between crews, so hewrote, with Ronald D. Moore and Brannon Braga, an opening sequencefeaturing Kirk, Spock, and McCoy, with a climax that would supposedlyhave Kirk 'die' alone, in space, thus fulfilling his prophecy from STARTREK V.As another link between TREKS, Leonard Nimoy was asked to directGENERATIONS, a wise decision, as he had worked in both TV series, haddirected two successful TREK films, and co-written a third. But afterreading the script, he said, bluntly, it was TERRIBLE! He offeredsuggestions, but Berman, struggling to complete the last episodes ofTNG, as well as put the film together, did not want to burn up any moreproduction time on rewrites, politely informing Nimoy to shoot what waswritten. Nimoy turned down the assignment, showing DeForest Kelley thescript. After reading it, Kelley stated that he felt THE UNDISCOVEREDCOUNTRY was a far more suitable finale for Dr. McCoy, and passed on it,as well. Shatner, getting a HUGE paycheck to revive Kirk a last time,remained committed, and James Doohan and Walter Koenig were hastilycalled in for the opening sequence (which was why Scotty called Kirk'Jim', and Chekov was suddenly gifted with medical skills). Kirk'sdisappearance still packed a wallop, but the absence of Spock and McCoyblunted much of the scene's dramatic power. With TNG director David Carson now in charge, a larger-scaled yetmediocre 'Next Generation' film emerged, with Picard and Data gettingmost of the screen time, and La Forge suffering the kind of physicalabuse that Chekov routinely got in the earlier TREK films. Picardexperiences a personal tragedy, and, as he had, far more memorably inthe TV series, ruminates about the life he 'could' have had, hadStarfleet not beckoned. Meanwhile, evil Dr. Tolian Soran (MalcolmMcDowell), having discovered a benevolent entity, the Nexus, that wouldallow him to 'live' with his dead wife in an eternal state of bliss (ala George Clooney's SOLARIS), decides to destroy a planet to reroutethe entity to him (why he didn't just hijack a spaceship and fly intoit is not well explained). Utilizing two whacked-out Klingon sistersand their 'Bird of Prey', he soon attacks the Enterprise, and whenPicard attempts to stop him on the planet's surface, the captain fails,with the pair sucked into the Nexus.Picard finds himself in the idyllic family life he'd always dreamed of,but, through willpower and the intervention of a 'ghost' of Guinan(Whoopi Goldberg), he comes to his senses, and is told the 'help' heneeds to defeat Saran is in the Nexus...in the form of James T. Kirk,sucked into the entity nearly eighty years before... While the 'Meeting of the Captains' offers the 'strengths' of bothactors (Shatner shows his signature physicality and cockiness, Stewart,as always, is quiet and intellectual), the scene feels stilted andcontrived, enjoyable only when Kirk reflects on Spock and McCoy, andboth Captains share a horseback ride (something Shatner had wanted todo since STAR TREK V). Of course, Picard convinces Kirk to join himagainst Saran ("It sounds like fun," Kirk admits).In yet another continuity glitch, the two captains leave the NexusBEFORE Picard's initial confrontation with Saran (if the Nexus has anypower over time, why didn't they just reappear prior to Saran'sarrival...or why did Picard need Kirk, at all, if he could have justreturned, alone, and blasted Saran?) Of course, as Berman wanted tofinish Kirk off, once and for all, he had to bring him out, as well...Speaking of Kirk's death scene...In the FIRST cut of the film, after ashort but exhausting fight sequence (clearly showing Kirk as too oldand out of shape for hand-to-hand combat), Saran pulls out a hiddenblaster, and shoots him in the back...while the dying Captain stallsthe villain long enough for Picard to save the day, the Enterprise'smost famous Captain dies, in a most unheroic manner (perhaps an honestindication of how Berman felt about Kirk!).Berman had NO idea how popular Captain Kirk was, however, and thepreview audience was so outraged by the sequence that Paramount,sensing a potential disaster, demanded the scene be rewritten andre-shot, a costly (as the film had already 'wrapped') but necessarymove.The second version offered far more of the 'Classic' Captain Kirk thatfans had come to expect, facing Saran fearlessly, duking it out, andproving himself far more of a match for the alien than Picard had been.He ends up 'saving the day', although there is a sense of irony that aman who'd spent most of his life on a 'bridge' would die when a bridgehe's on collapses! While this ending was FAR superior to the first version, it stillseemed an ignoble climax to a legend. Even William Shatner, afterviewing it, considered killing Kirk a bad move, and offered ascreenplay for a sequel where Kirk would be resurrected...which Berman,wanting NOTHING more to do with him, refused.So Kirk dies, his body covered with stones by Picard, and the 'NextGeneration' crew is evacuated from yet another destroyed Enterprise. STAR TREK: GENERATIONS could have been a much better film, but in hishaste to finish it, and move on, Rick Berman disappointed both series'fans. Fortunately, the greatest of the 'Next Generation' films, FIRSTCONTACT, would soon be made.
This was generally a good Star Trek film. While the plot wasn't as good asVI or maybe even First Contact, it was solid, especially with Kirk. My onlybig quabbles are more technical. First, the awful lighting. It's eithertoo dark or too bright to be Star Trek. Second, the burial of Kirk.Wouldn't he have a large funeral like Spock's? After all, he's done his bitfor king and country. A good watch.
This review is from: Star Trek VII: Generations (Amazon Instant Video) This is a great transition from TOS crew to the TNG crew movie format. While some critized Kirk's demize I thought the final scene with Picard was very good. A great send off to TOS.
This was truly the worst of the Trek films, brought down by its ownhubris. Let's look at its sins. * Killing the Greatest hero in SF for no good reason. * Destroying theEnterprise-D for no good reason. * Killing Picard's loved ones for nogood reason. * Turning Picard into a crying sissy-boy. * Turning Kirkinto a jerk. * Turning Data into a babbling idiot.In some ways, time has undermined this film. In 1994, one could see TNGand TOS as almost equals. Since then, the Next Generation crew hasdiminished in stature, while the Original Series crew has risen. (Whyelse would they recast it in ST-XI?) But the reality is that this just isn't a very good film and never willbe. It's dramatic flourishes are diminished by how badly they arehandled. Come on, not only killing Kirk, the greatest hero that ScienceFiction has ever produced, but then killing him with SCAFFOLDING? Itlike having John Wayne break his neck tripping over the spittoon in thesaloon! The films other fault is that it is too derivative of TNG. You'd haveto have seen those episodes to know who these characters are.
Weak script with Jean-Luc Picard playing too much second fiddle to Kirk.Pretty sad movie, although Stewart's acting is still awesome, but withoutany powerful presence in the story at all. Not an inspiring movie atall.
After viewing this film several times I can finally see whats wrong with it..Spoiler space.....The producers have the makeshift bridge fall on on Kirk in his effort to deactivate the rocket with will destory that solor system's sun. Why not have Kirk on the Enterprise as it's crashing fighting some renegade Klingons. That was the theme in Star Trek VI...I could not believe that there were no scenes with him on the bridge of the new Enterprise...no interaction or thoughts with the new crew...it would have been priceless to see him on the bridge of the new Enterprise....
Generations is a pretty poorly done DVD - Like all the other reviews state, there are no trailers, no reviews, no cut clips, director's cut, or interviews. I can see why they didn't include any extras on the DVD since the movie was already poorly done in the first place.Star Trek: The Next Generation's first foray into the movie world was a disorganized, poorly scripted movie which obviously was a scrappy montage of too many different ideas into one movie. In short, the viewer can tell that the directors and producers had disproportinately different ideas for this movie and they couldn't compromise - that's why we get this mess of a movie. Generations obviously was way for all these ideas to come together incoherently. (i.e. Kirk meets Picard, Enterprise being thrown around, Data's emotion chip etc, The Duras Sisters) Another reason the movie didn't work is that they tried ideas that fans and non-fans were not used to. The Duras sisters and the Romulans came out of nowhere; Picard was never this emotional in any part of ST:TNG history, and even if he was affected by emotion, he handled it a lot better on the TV episodes than this movie. Picard getting emotional over his family also came out of nowhere since there was never any continuity or support from the beginning of the movie or that episodes that even justifies that Picard actually cared about them. A lot of the movie is fustrating for many Trek viewers since the crew made a lot of dumb mistakes that don't correlate to their personalities or typical behaviors. In short, a really poor excuse for a movie that destroy's seven year's worth of ST:TNG base of character development, relationships, and logic - the bad concepts definetly outweigh anything good about this movie.
A decent movie as the baton is handed from Kirk's crew to Picard's as far asStar Trek Films go. Kirk and Picard unite to fight off a madman and Datafinally gets his emotion chip and learns to cope with it. Trekkies mightfind something to like in it, and non-fans might too. Not too bad anentry.** 1/2 out of ****
(CAUTION: SPOILERS AHEAD)A truly spectacular addition to the Star Trek legacy, Star Trek: Generations had everything that a Trekkie could ever ask for- heart-pounding action with first-Enterprise Captain Kirk at his finest, keen insight on what drives fourth-Enterprise Captain Picard to be such a dedicated and determined leader, further development of Data's character (easily the most interesting Star Trek character of all time) as he feels emotion for the very first time, dazzling special effects as two, count 'em, two Enterprises have more holes punched into them than swiss cheese placed next to a mouse hole, and, of course, classic Star Trek humor (most of which is focused on Data- coincidence? I think not).Whereas the previous Star Trek film focused heavily on characters, ideals, politics, and Shakespeare, Star Trek: Generations, what with the introduction of a new crew to the silver screen, was a chance to get back to the roots of Star Trek- interstellar exploration, special effects, character development on a massive scale, and tongue-in-cheek humor. With an original plot, unlike anything displayed in the Next Generation series from which these characters hail, depicting a crazed man's quest for eternal happiness by way of interdimensional ribbon of energy, the film was engaging to fans, while still understandable by non-Trekkies.In terms of characters, each cast member easily held their own. The classic Trek characters depicted in the opening scenes (Kirk, Chekov, and Scotty), reprising their roles from years past, made quick work of stealing each second of air time in which they were shown. In the latter half of the movie, the new crew members from TNG displayed their mastery of their roles, acquired from seven years on television. What's more, the film makes a point to give each character enough screen time to make their presence in the film worthwhile, and while the film obviously centers on Captains' Kirk and Picard, the rest of the crew(s) make themselves known as well (especially Data). Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg) was a delight as always as the mystical El-Aurian, and this film even serves to shine some light on Guinan's elusive past. Then there were the villains- Malcolm McDowell, as the mad scientist Dr. Soran, presents a character determined to get into "paradise," so to speak, so as he can see his lost family again. His intentions are understandable, but McDowell's performance is just crazed and cool enough to let the viewer hate his guts. Klingon mercenaries Lursa and B'Etor also make a short, dramatic (and final) appearance. All in all, I only had two major complaints, which kept me from giving the film my highest rating. First, because the film had two extremely-prominent characters (Kirk and Picard) to deal with, the other characters, although felt and acknowledged, were all but unnecessary to the primary plot of the film. Finally, Kirk's death was under-emphasized. This was a man who had confronted nearly every evil force in the galaxy, and, in his valiant, headstrong fashion, emerged victorious. Then, through some bad luck, he was killed when a bridge collapsed under him! The man who nearly single-handedly defeated Khan, dozens of Klingons, and dozens of other strange alien creatures, was killed by a bridge!Despite these weaknesses, this film was a worthy addition to the Star Trek film library, and I highly recommend adding it to your home video library today.
This review is from: Star Trek VII: Generations (Amazon Instant Video) I am 53, and an original Trekkie (but not obsessed). I remember seeing the original series, the parts my parents would let me, as a child. I grew up with Star Trek after school (on TV). My favorite of the movies is Star Trek 2, the Wrath of Kahn. Generations is my second favorite. It melds the original with next gen, but also does an awesome job of seeing inside the characters. I think the most poignant concept is the idea of time changing things. This is personalized by Picard, but is also a reflection of how the original Trek and the Next Gen evolve. Is time the predator that stalks us, the fire in which we burn? Is it something that makes every moment special, even though it changes everything? As an older Trekkie I found this concept important both in the series and in my own life. This is a very thoughtful movie that can be appreciated on multiple levels. Don't miss it!
And what an event it was. The first pairing of (parts of) the originalcrew with the Next Generation characters was hyped beyond belief in1994 and most fans were pretty excited in advance. However, this excitement faded somewhat when the film came out, withmany people insisting that the plot was stupid, too many story elementswere lifted from episodes of the series, and that all in all this felttoo much like a made-for-TV movie.Well yes, the plot is stupid, but then again this movie is all aboutthe collaboration of Kirk and Picard and emotionally charged themessuch as the toll of aging and the importance of taking responsibilityfor one's life. The plot here is just a convenient device to string allthese things together and pack them into a movie that makes a littlebit of sense, though perhaps no more than a typical Jerry Bruckheimerproduction.So while the writing attempts to cram almost everything that can everpossibly be in a Star Trek movie into the screenplay and was perhapsnot such a good starting point to begin with, everyone involved did awonderful job of turning this somewhat messy script into a movie that,while still being somewhat uneven, is all-around entertaining and nevermisses a beat (save for some of the Nexus sequences, where thegratuitous horseback riding was apparently mostly inserted to strokeShatner's ego and not because it benefited the movie in any way).A beautiful cinematography with lots of picturesque darkness and deeplysaturated colors needs to be counted among the movie's virtues, butalso a rousing score by Dennis McCarthy, and finally top-notch acting,especially by Stewart who portrays a wide range of emotions betweenregret and boundless joy with absolute believability, similar to hisperformance in such highly regarded episodes of the series such as "TheInner Light". The movie also has a nicely quirky sense of humor but atthe same time knows to integrate its funny moments seamlessly with theaction sequences, a skill which has unfortunately atrophied somewhat inthe later Next Generation installments.While this film may have its weaknesses, it is in my view saved by itsunending interest in the emotional lives of its characters, itsattention to detail (watch the almost operatic way in which the actorsand the camera move sometimes) and the sheer energy and conviction thatthe filmmakers obviously had to make this one the most engaging "Trek"of all. While they did not entirely succeed, I think one cannot faultthem for trying.
The preconception that every odd-numbered Star Trek movie must be bad hasgiven an unfairly sour reputation to this film. As for inconsistencies incharacter, plot and fictional science, at what point has Star Trek everclaimed to be 100% accurate? I concede that this is not the finestincarnation they have ever made, but any true fan must appreciate itssignificance, and the overall enjoyment of the ride.
The first of the feature films centered on the Next Generation crew is also probably the best. The film continues to develop Data's character, using an emotion chip that provides several hilarious scenes and more range to Brent Spiner's excellent portrayals. Picard has some moving moments as well, in a plot that includes aspects of time travel and wish fulfillment that allow him to meet James T. Kirk (William Shatner) from the original Enterprise! Various character developments and really epic events toward the end of the film make this "must-viewing" for anyone who wants to follow the series! A real pleasure to watch, despite a great variety of moods and plot elements. And even though Malcolm McDowell is handed a rather cliched "villain" role, he manages to just barely keep that character out of the standard "snarling villain" stereotypes that pervade so many of the other Star Trek feature films. Although Trek worked best as a television series, of all 10 Trek films that were based on those series, I feel this film is a strong candidate (with Star Trek IV) for being the best one. (I do not count the new "Star Trek" movie by J.J. Abrams, since the only person with that film that had any involvement whatsoever with the earlier productions was Leonard Nimoy, and since the film contradicts so many of the established norms for the show.)
For years, Trekkies wanted to see Captains James Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard finally team up and unite the two major generations of the Starship Enterprise in what would, doubtless, be an adventure to remember. As is so often the case, the realization of that dream leaves a lot to be desired, and the final result is all too forgettable. What went wrong? For one thing, Kirk's character is handled very poorly. The adventurous, 23rd-century Odysseus has devolved into a whipped milksop who wants to leave galaxy-saving to Picard so he can go back to fixing eggs. Moreover the film is choppy and slow. There's not much action, despite a brief confrontation between the Enterprise and some rogue Klingons. There's a lot of really silly "humor" courtesy of Data and some new emotions, which makes a mockery of the ordinarily poignant portrayal of the android's ongoing quest to become more human. And Soran, despite behing essayed by an excellent actor in Malcom McDowell, is a terribly weak antagonist who fails to bring any genuine menace to the lackluster plot. Worst of all, the infamous death scene (and if you've ever even heard of this movie before you know what I'm talking about) is a total embarrassment and a sorry way to send off one of the greatest sci-fi heroes in TV and cinema history. I suppose there are a couple of plusses, though they are relatively weak ones. The early scenes with a few of the original Trek crew members are effective, and Captain Picard's familial subplot is genuinely touching. As one would expect of a big-budget Star Trek film, the production values are excellent all-around and everything looks terrific. But there should have been a lot more to brag about, and there's just not.This could have easily been a milestone in the Star Trek canon. Instead, it's possibly the series' low point (though I admit it has some competition for that dubious honor from "The Final Frontier"). The story needed a stronger script, better characterization for Captain Kirk, a more powerful villain, and more action. This is one film that might have actually benefitted from being half an hour longer. Trekkie loyalists and completists may still enjoy it, but it's not a movie I can recommend to the general fan. Save your time and watch "First Contact" or "The Voyage Home" instead.
