"Goods"?  It's the bestest.

Or maybe not quite but it was really good.

I enjoyed the digressions that Mike and Kevin went into over the dead spots in the film.  It's one of the reasons that typically enjoy the multi-party tracks over the solo ones; it smooths over the five minutes of floating champagne bottle.

My understanding is that Shatner is a bit of an equestrian which is why horseback riding featured so prominently in this movie and in Final Frontier.  I haven't watched enough Boston Legal to know if it turns up there...

Easily one of t he best Trax.

Picard: "Guinan? ..."
Kevin: "Her last name is Cologist."

(Data takes a drink and makes a bad face.)
Mike: "Oh must be Jagermeister."
Guinan: "It looks like he hates it."
Data: "Yes! I hate this! It is revolting!"
Guinan: "More?"
Data: "Please."
Mike: "Yep, it's Jagermeister alright."

So many great lines and moments in this one. Bravo!

I saw a bit of the end. It was pretty good, but the whole bit about Data's cat eating chinese cat food rubbed me a little raw. My cat died about 3 months ago from unidentified contaminated dry food, and I think it is a pretty sore situation still to be making fun of it.

sorry to hear that, that whole thing really scared me when the news came out, luckily I didnt feed my kitty any of those foods. However my last kitty got eaten by a bear.....I shit you not.


Anyway, my favorite line and this hints at my low level of humor was the "It's the one labeled shake" by Kevin in "Kirk's house"

By the way, where was the bad guy during the whole "fantasy world" thing? Was he just off enjoying himself? Is he still in the ribbon, or did changing the past keep him from going in? I mean, Picard did stop him, but his changing things didn't change his memory.

....

Actually, I can't think of a way that whole mess didn't just cause the Universe to implode.

  Okay, this is now my favorite Rifftrax EVER.

Yeah, the old man's "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!?" and "Prarie dogs are being decapitated by the second" lines, along with the "Picard checking on Number 1" bit made that the best part of the Riff.

That's the best line in this Rifftrax and it's spoken by Mike. I can guess why you can't remember. ;)

Kirk: behind the Oregano
Mike: it's labeled shake... that's uh... Nexus for Oregano

Hilarious!

While some parts of the trax were funny, I kinda didn't like the overall tone of the thing.  It's probably because TNG is one of my favourite TV shows, but at times, the commentary was downright mean-spirited.   That said, the opening conversation between Mike and Kevin about Mike's wallpaper was hilarious.  I do hope they move on from Star Trek now, though.

I thought this was the funniest trek yet, and I enjoyed both of the previous trek-riffs.  Hands down, my favorite line in Generations had to be "I sense disturbed-ness..." over the shot of Councilor Troi giving puppy-dog eyes.  Instant classic!

Cause they are the movie versions. I don't think it is so much loathing for the original characters, just laughing at the stupid situations they may get into. But if you grew up with Star Trek around that time, and know a lot of the episode material, as various rifftrax and mstsk episodes would suggest, then I find it pretty hard to believe that they hate TOS. Sure it may be goofy sometimes, but its lovable.

This turned out to be one of the funniest Rifftrax that we've watched in awhile!

I have to admit that i was thinking the major reason for doing another Star Trek film was the money. Apparently these movies are among the most popular and, i assume, the most profitable. So when Disembaudio started in with the "Buy More Rifftrax!" gag... i thought "Oh great, here's a Star Trek quickie just for the money~"

But man, i was wrong! This was great. We were laughing so hard that we almost couldn't take it sometimes. Definitely one of my top picks, and probably the best Star Trek riff so far. Awesome!

After the first half of this one, I was ready to proclaim it the best ever. The riffs were clever and right on the money.

The second half of the movie was pretty dull, though, and started putting me to sleep. But it was probably mainly the movie's fault.

I'd still say that overall it still was really good!

Post by: starfighter on July 06, 2007, 12:29:50 AM
    Didn't care for this one.  They really didn't have anything original to offer that they hadn't already joked about in the previous Trek riffs.  This is the closest I've ever come to shutting off the riffs cause I was more interested in the movie but I'm sure they'll be back up to form next time.

I am a Trek fan and I like the TV show Next Generation very much!  But, none of the Next Generation movies have had very good writing, and this one was indeed, as Mike and Kevin pointed out in the beginning, the very silliest of the Star Trek movies, (possible exception, STV).  Also, with the exception of Stewart, (who had some bad moments in this movie!), none of the other actors are really "big screen" material... know what I mean? 

So, I loved the 'Trax and I love it when the guys skewer Trek movies.  I say, do 'em all!!!

I never did even care for "First contact" all that much either... the Borg Queen blowing on Data's skin then saying "Was it good for you?" made me physically ill. Plus Zefram Cochrane being the "reluctant hero" type really never worked. I thought it was a very lame story point. For me, the next gen movies are sad, horribly cliched and lame... but they're still better than Phantom menace and Attack of the clones, albeit barely.

Pretty much agreed.  Wrath of Khan was fairly splooge worthy all around, (although it has riffable moments, you must admit), and I really liked Search for Spock, because of Rev. Jim's Klingon Commander-- the best Kilngon ever.

"You Klingon bastard.... you killed my son..."  ah, classic....

I enjoy most Trek movies, save Insurrection. First Contact may be my favorite. I could understand people liking the newer films less since it's kinda hard to keep coming up with fresh ideas that remain in the Trek universe and that appeal to old fans while not totally boring potential fans. At least the new ones have had Patrick Stewart, probably the most credible actor to be have a major role in Star Trek.

Oh yeah, favorite line: "You tell 'em Rhonda!"

"Next time I'll wear a cup."

 ;D

"Did we do it?"
"Not that I know of."

I liked how they sort of tried to tone it down a bit for the Kirk death  -- I don't care beans for "Star Trek" and the Shat is the hammiest ham that ever hammed it up,  but a little respect for the dying is nice. But that one zinger was classic.  ;D ;D ;D

The Picard and his Victorian children bits were funny, but I'm surprised they didn't do even more "Christmas Carol" riffs. Hasn't Stewart played Scrooge more than once? That would have been perfect.

Great riff, though, and I for one am game for more "Trek" riffs. Not caring beans for the shows or movies apparently really helps you enjoy the riffs! :)

Also, I had completely forgotten about the strangest line of all time: "They say that time is the fire in which we buuuuuurn." When this first came out my friends and I would grab each other by the arm and repeat this, each time pronouncing the word burn more and more ridiculously.

A small tidbit for everyone.  Generations was filmed on pretty much a shoe string budget.  They were so tight for cash that they actually had to reuse special effects from Star Trek 6 to get the movie made.  The explosion of the Klingon ship, for example, is the same one from 6.

Post by: Nunyerbiz on July 17, 2007, 08:35:20 AM
Yea, this one is easily on the heels of "Final Frontier" for worst Trek movie featuring TOS members. Now I remember why I haven't revisited it since the theatrical run fifteen years ago or however long it's been. Your Trek movie is probably in bad shape when Nimoy turns down a paycheck. Take a run-of-mill script meant for a TNG episode, cobbled together with a goofy Kirk subplot at the beginning and the end and you have Generations. With the exception of the occasional redeeming scene from Stewart, this one is chuck full of TV actors reading TV lines from a hackneyed TV script. Well, I guess it's like most Trek movies in that regard... but... The TNG crew either seemed more relaxed on the small screen or perhaps the small screen hid their flaws... but wow... they just don't translate to the big screen. Say what you will about the Shat... but him and Nimoy could carry a Trek film... Stewart saddled with Frakes.? ummm... yea... maybe not.

The rifftrax started out great. They already went to the well as far as riffing the TOS cast member opening credits on STV and without much to really say about the not nearly as iconic TNG cast members, Mike's little "kids do the darndest things" opener was pretty amusing. The riffing during the opening "Kirk" subplot was spot on and had me laughing out loud a number of times and they kept things up right into the annoying "Data with the emotion chip" segments. I thought the riffing was somewhat up and down from there, but still consistently funny when they stuck to the movie...  This might not feature as many laugh out loud zingers as Final Frontier had, but it's a very solid effort. While I wouldn't say I'd be looking forward to every last Trek film getting the treatment, it's the third time around and they probably equalled or maybe slightly outdid the three man booth from Undiscovered Country. 7.5/10

Typical Nunyerbiz complaint #1: Maybe it was just because I hadn't seen the movie in forever, but they seemed to do a LOT of walking over dialouge. At some level, I'm trying to watch the movie... and it's always at least a minor annoyance when the guys seem to forget that the movies are the reason they have this gig to begin with. I prefer when they work with the movie and not in spite of it. Filling dead space is fine, but even if the plot is goofy and asinine, that's something I want to discover for myself and it's tough to do when stand-up bits are drowning out the characters.

If Kristanna Loken reprised her role as the Terminatrix and she wirred through a modem I'd be willing to watch.

Im not ashamed to say that id be willing to watch Loken doing nothing but playing jacks on a street corner.....id still be game for it.

Dr. Soran: Have you ever considered a prosthesis that would make you more, um...
Mike: [as Soran] ...Spikey and English?

Dr. Soran: I must return to my observatory at once.
Mike: [as Soran] I need to become more English.

Riker: Bad food, brutal discipline. And no women.
Mike: [as Picard] Oh, sounds perfect!

A small tidbit for everyone.  Generations was filmed on pretty much a shoe string budget.  They were so tight for cash that they actually had to reuse special effects from Star Trek 6 to get the movie made.  The explosion of the Klingon ship, for example, is the same one from 6.

I know.  And god knows...they make so little money on this franchise.....   (http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b4/robotrix/Smileys/thjerkit.gif)

Apparently exploiting a shrinking fanbase for forty years results in seriously diminishing returns.  Who would have guessed?

I for one loved Enterprise.  I don't know why it was cancelled.  Scott Bakula was a great captain, and I still want to fuck T-Pal.

And you spend years telling people what losers they are and to "get a life"....and then one day you look around and they took your advice and they're gone.  Wonder why that happened?

The franchise was still at it's height when Generations was made.  In fact, this film and those that followed along with the remaining TV shows is what caused the decline.

And it's not like this is the first film where SFX were recycled.  With the exception of the first film, every Original Series film has had at least one shot from a movie before it.

It's late and I'm tired but these are the ones that come to mind right now...

- ST: Wrath of Khan - The Enterprise-in-drydock footage and the space station (turned upside down) from ST:The Motion Sickness

- ST: Search For Spock - The Genesis footage and there's something else that's slipping my mind at the moment.

- ST: The Voyage Home - the Klingon Warbird footage

In fact, that used to be the joke between my Trek fan friends and I when the new movie came out at the time - Spot the Recycled SFX.   There was always at least one.

Paramount has always treated Trek fans like crap.  Throwing them scraps.  The reason there wasn't a movie before Star Wars hit was that  they figured they were making plenty of money with no investment off the OS so why bother?  And the problem was that there was enough rabid fans at the time that would put up with it.

But between the constant insults of bad tv series, bad movies, slaps in the face like Trekkies....and more alternatives like "B5", "SG-1", whatever - finally took it's toll.   A well-deserved toll.  However, Paramount still doesn't realize it.

That's why I'm not looking forward to the new movie.  They haven't learned their lession, yet.

Overall, quite funny-- I enjoyed this more than Star Trek V.  It seemed to me that the little skits were kept to a minimum, and I'm always a fan of that.

(enormous missile appears)  "Well, good, there's that now."

"Can we play ship again?"

"Okay!  Good crash, everybody."

"Couldn't they play golf or poker, or something a little less precious?"

"I threw a rock and he didn't yell at me, heh."

"I don't remember ordering you and that hat."

"Kirk would've bagged 'em both by now", "OFFSCREEN!" and the tampon line in that scene were priceless.

The only time the BUY MORE RIFFTRAX worked for us was at the very end, because we weren't expecting it.

Viewing this after the Minn. bridge collapse made us wince during the final scenes, but of course that wasn't an issue when this was released, so to those of you who haven't seen it yet, be forewarned.  But the old-men-fighting part  with Kirk in his itchy Making a Difference sweater was hilarious for its absolute, unerring reliance on quick cuts.  No Brits or hams were harmed in the filming of this finale.

There's just something about The Shat I can't tear my eyes from.  I think I need help.  Perhaps it's his low, low hotel prices.

I've only watched the first half, but my God, I was laughing at Riker's "I'll be bouncing on the Counselor."

Also, I had completely forgotten about the strangest line of all time: "They say that time is the fire in which we buuuuuurn." When this first came out my friends and I would grab each other by the arm and repeat this, each time pronouncing the word burn more and more ridiculously.

My friend kept saying that line over and over before I put the movie in on Friday.   Needless to say, he will be doing that all day at work on Monday.

You will be delighted to hear of this little tidbit I picked up on IMDB:

Quote
Malcolm McDowell was so taken with the line "Time is the fire in which we burn" he had it engraved on the pocket watch he uses in the film.

Add Omnius and Erasmus to the mix and then you've got some kickass machines. Then Vorian Atredies comes along and WHOOPS destroyed everything oh well.

I just re-authored and watched this one last night.  I can't remember the exact line, but at one point Kevin makes a comment about the third album from Dutch progressive rock band Focus (it was actually 1973)... Focus III.

Kudos on such an obscure reference.    :clap:

Gotta say, this is a nice riff. I love how they got uncomfortable during Picard's breakdown over Rene... It's tough to riff over something like that, especially when Stewart did such a marvelous job conveying pain and loss.

The Emotion Chip scene:

"Here, Insert this.  No, I really want you to insert this."  "Side effects may include melodrama, unwanted subplots, and uncontrollable hamminess.  Always consult your producer before beginning this or any storyline change."

During the Trilithium exposition:

Pan off me!  I'm an extra!"

"Crap crap jargon jargon  crap sir."  "Go on."  "Made up crap jargon bunch-of-bull crap"  "So it's Romulan's is it?"

"I'll be bouncin' on the counsellor."

Later, during "crashing enterprise, take two"

"we're breaking apart (again!).  We're losing hull integrity (Again,), Inertial dampeners offline (again.)"  Those aren't the actual words but you know what i"m getting at.

"The emotion chip allowed data to fill HIS pants from terror."


Some notes on this film, notice this is the only bigscreen film in which the Enterprise D is featured?  The 1701-D sets were designed with the TV screen in mind and therefore doesn't look good in sixteen by nine, thus the storypoint where a Klingon POS takes out the federation flagship in 11 seconds to make room for a bigscreen friendly Enterprise-E.  In fact, most of that set was f'real destroyed.  Also, take a look at the uniforms...notice half of them are the original TNG design, and the other half the purple-collar DS9/VOY type?  A shoestring budget?  No, maybe a "pack of gum, three paperclips and can of WD40" budget.

Or it could be that Starfleet gradually phases in new uniform variations. They had both on DS9 for a while, too.

I finally got around to watching this (I don't go in any specific order for my trax, mostly it is whenever netflix can send me one that sounds interesting)

Anyways the line: Kirk: behind the Oregano
Mike: it's labeled shake... that's uh... Nexus for Oregano

was one of my favs easily!!

I also greatly enjoyed Kevin's prarie dog line

and him asking mike if "you think those are the only part of their breats not covered by hair?"


All in all a very fun track that movies quickly and I will go back to time and time again!    BUY MORE RIFFTRAX
