If you liked The Phantom Menace you might enjoy this too.

They should put that on the poster.

I watched Star Trek First Contact, a 1996 film featuring the Star Trek The Next Generation cast. I've seen it multiple times. Great movie, it's got a lot of Borg(the zombies of Star Trek). I give it 30 stars out of a possible 10.

Interesting because that was where I gave up on Star Trek. Much like where Phantom Menace was where I gave up on Star Wars.

I never got enough of the Borg, which was probably one of the reasons they seemed so chilling.  They didn't show up that often, and thank God they didn't, or the Enterprise crew would have surely been doomed.  But 30 out of 10???  That would make it the best movie ever, and that fame certainly belongs to Star Trek IV, The Voyage Home.

I think we watched different movies.  

While I do love the Borg, I hated their gradual villain decay from a nigh-unstoppable and unnervingly dispassionate collective to space zombies led by an increasingly laughable queen.  I basically agree with Red Letter Media's assessment of the movie.

I hated the part with Cockrane and the crew's fangasms over him (and really, Geordi, do you not know what "taking a leak" means?)  I also disliked the implication that Future Starfleet set into motion events that led to Starfleet being founded which led to Future Starfleet..oh dear, I've gone cross-eyed.

Then there's the infamous and wildly OOC Tommy Gun incident...

While not as bad as Nemesis or Generations or Insurrection (basically, all the other TNG movies), it was basically the moment that Star Trek jumped the shark.  7 out of 10 for me, and only because of the great action scenes and worthy (though tragically mishandled) villains.

While I agree it doesn't deserve 30 out of 10 (lol), it is far and away the best TNG film.  
Also, they Jumped the Shark with Generations, so it was already dead and done by the time First Contact came out.  Honestly, it's a miracle it wasn't worse.
I do love and agree with Red Letter Medias review mostly though.  Especially Picard dropping the artifact carelessly at the end of the movie while searching through the debris. Crash!  That did make me laugh pretty hard, I hadn't spotted that one on my own.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.  5/10

Cute, but too long and drawn out.  The first 1/2 hour was very entertaining, after that I had a hard time staying awake or caring what happened.  My daughter, who is like me and generally is glued to animated films, also lost interest.  She stuck with it longer than me, but neither of us really cared about the end much.

I give them all 30/10.
I actually think Star Trek jumped the shark in the very first episode of TNG when they introduced Wesley Crusher. If it wasn't for him it would be 50/10.

That was horrible. Part of the reason why it was horrible is because they show up and just say "We're from the fucking future. A future you're going to help shape by flying that tin can of yours into space. It's very important and shit, but no pressure."

I mean, fuck, yo.

In the episode Who Watches the Watchers they had to go undercover to prevent fucking with a pre warp civilization. I guess it don't matter if that pre warp civilization is their own. I mean, I agree that it gets kind of tedious when they go undercover like that on the planet. But It's kind of like when you watch a slow-moving zombie movie and wonder why they don't just run away from the zombies. Because it's fucking stupid. That's why.

You, my friend, are either the most forgiving critic I have ever met or unclear on the whole critic scores core concept.

1/10 = purge it with fire, assassinate the production staff
2/10 = makes me die a little inside, probably killed the franchise
3/10 = vomit-inducing
4/10 = horrid
5/10 = average
6/10 = okay, but could've been much better
7/10 = pretty good, despite several flaws
8/10 = amazing
9/10 = I want to marry this movie!
10/10 = exceptional quality, this will be a cultural touchstone for generations to come.

That and they just fawn over the guy constantly and will not leave him alone.  It's like working with Overly Attached Girlfriend.  *shudders*

I certainly agree First Contact had problems. But, I still found it very enjoyable to watch none-the-less.  I do remember one time seeing a top-ten reasons First Contact sucked.  I can't remember the rest of the 10, but one of them was, "How is it possible the the Borq could know exactly when in time and where in place to attack - and still miss?" LOL.

Well, the where in space was easy since they went to where Earth was in their present and just back in time in that location because planets are exceptionally still.
