I ABSOLUTELY agree! Generations, both on Laserdisc and DVD (both versions, all of which I bought and regretted) is completely unwatchable. It certainly isn't the best of the Star Trek films, but it is important to me because it is the last time Shatner played Kirk, and it is the only time we will ever see the Enterprise D in a feature film. However, the mystical shimmering Data makes this moving literally unwatchable for me. I will pay the cost of the box set just to get a correct transfer of this movie at long last. If they screw it up again, even being the completest I am, I won't buy it on principle. Not a fourth time. I'll pick up First Contact by itself if I have to.
Generations on Laserdisc and DVD is THE movie to show someone if they don't understand what edge enhancement is and how bad it can look. It is the textbook example.
