    Star Trek: First Contact [18]

    Movie Reviews
      
         
    This movie was surprisingly better than I expected. It was directed by Jonathan Frakes who plays Captain Picard's First Officer, William Riker (aka Number One). It didn't take the same omnipotent supernatural probe visits the earth and the only way to get it to leave is to blow up the Enterprise scenario. Always good to see new Federation ship designs and even more so on a big screen. People not interested in Star Trek will not get lost while watching this movie, because it was written as a stand-alone piece. The only real TV show tie-ins occur with Commander Worf in charge of the "Defiant" (a role he now plays on Star Trek Deep Space Nine) and the reappearance of the Borg.

    Unexplained issues: Geordi LaForge has lost his visor and now has new eye implants. Why? Why Not? Why is it so simple to recreate a time distortion window with magnesium particles?

    I rated this movie low for two reasons. I found it visually exhausting to watch. There was so much detail in the sets it was hard to focus (maybe i was just tired). I also dislike the Star Trek formula that sets up impossible situations just to have a clean cut last minute solution at the end. OK Jeff but this applies to lots of movies what is your problem? You ask. I say you are correct, but for me it is disturbingly noticeable in Star Trek Plots. The TV show suffered from this; set up bad situations for our heroes and wrap it all up nicely in the last two minutes before the commercial break. I also see a world with no money, hunger, disease, human struggle, scary. I couldn't help but think that in Roddenberry's world you are judged solely on your career. Ick.

    Time travel plots in my circle of friends are also a minus five point deduction. Come on guys! Let's do something new! {JB}
