despite the controversy over this film, I went with the space battle in the Nebula. Sorry, but it got me...I'm a sucker for fancy visuals.

I think I'm going to have to go with the battle, too. That was awesome. But the new warbirds, the Scimitar, the Argo...all good things, as well. :thumbsup:

Space battle. But it's not just the mind blowing effects, it's the intensity, the risk, the personal desperation.

I went with Romulans. The more we see of them the more interesting they become.

you are exactly right...after all, I think they were in that nebula for nearly 1/2 the movie.

The Valdore warbirds got my vote. They look stunning! They look much more like a bird than the D'deridex did. :)

Well, I'd have been voting right along side you Shlomi ~ only we hardly got to see any Romulans in Nemesis. <_<

Soo....I (obviously!) have to go with the one thing that Baird couldn't cut out of the movie ~ Tom Hardy's astonishingly compelling performance as a troubled, messed-up, boy king...IMO it was the one thing that made this movie stand out, otherwise it truly would have been the drivel many fans reported it to be.

Right, the Romulans really were only given barely more screen time than in previous films, and the Remans instead got the spotlight. Shinzon was compelling to watch but the Remans bored me. No one can say Nemesis was about the Romulans.

Yes, but what intriqued me most is when the Romulans were on screen, they compelled me to watch with anticipation. They may not have been on there much, but let's face it, they have a striking cultural setting that many find fascinating -- and it may be simply because their lack of facetime, we find them such a striking force.



I can remember the day when the Klingons held that kind of fascination, but with all we have learned about them over the last 40 years, they have lost some of that luster that sparks one's imagination, whereas, the Romulans are still a relatively unknown quantity that hungers for further exploration. It is sort of like seeing a pinup girl naked or in a shimmering sexy dress with just a hint of thigh showing as she slowly turns. While the naked one certainly sparks interest, it is the other one that really raises the ole body temp. ;)

Well they were better than seeing another Klingon themed movie. The Klingons had their heyday with TOS and then the early films, and maybe, just maybe, early TNG. But overexposure ruins the mystery behind such a culture.

I agree with you on this one...while I find the Klingons fascinating and a very entertaining species, they have been so overdone, especially in the movies. The only thing I would have liked to see more of, or would like to see more of if possible, are the Klingons later on in Enterprise, learning to cope in the early years of their "new look"

I'm going to go with Wesley Crusher...

...wait, just kidding, though one could argue that Nemesis is the worst Star Trek film simply because it has this distinction.

Actually, I'd say my favorite part of the film is Patrick Stewart. The guy brings a lot of depth and emotion to what could have been a really awful film. He pretty much saves this from being a total trainwreck.

^^^I liked Stewart's preformance too!

I seem to remember that he caught some flack by appearing to freeze right when he's pinned down by the weight of Shinzon's dead body before Data arrives in the nick of time, but actually I think I'd freeze with horror if I'd just seen a horribly disfigured version of myself pull himself along the point of a spear!

I think Tom Hardy was tremendously lucky to work with such a venerable actor who is a real master of his craft, and whose ego is not so great that he can allow a young, unknown actor have the space to do his thing. Stewart allowed Hardy to be central in every scene they played together, and Stewart's own nicely understated performance is arguably his best as Picard.

On the subject of the underdevelopment of the Romulans: I'd never thought of it that way, but I think Shlomi and Mighty Captain may be right that subjecting them to the same amount of over-exposure as the Klingons may ruin their sense of mystery. The Romulans are still pretty exotic and glamourous, maybe we should keep them that way ~ at least onscreen. ;)

I also loved stewarts performance. He is a great actor.

You may have a point here.

I also liked Stewart's performance, and Tom Hardy's as well...both had some chemistry together and I think being clones worked well for them

...that picture of young Picard was a little much though...what a bald dork in uniform

Another WHO fan I see! Excellent!
I would just like to take out a moment to say I agree with Jules over the Romulan issue.
And that both Stewart and Hardy were superb in Nemesis and especially the scene where Shinzon forces Picard to watch as he impales himself.
Most chilling.

In this way, Nemesis was more like Trek of old with a sound adversary for the crew than, say, the somewhat disappointing Insurrection that came before it.
