the atmospheric dark yellow lighting is very much over the top, and the uniform situation is a hilarious grab bag, but such awkwardness only makes me love the movie even more. I also love that Kirk and Picard have an argument of historic importance while scrambling eggs - it's just the right amount of goofy.
The lighting has always bothered me, and the use of the TNG sets really makes this feel more like an extended TV episode than a movie to me; a lackluster coda to the excellent series finale. At just under two hours, it's a little slow at times but not too bad. After watching @"Menbailee" 's Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 8 a few years ago (which consists of hour-long cuts of First Contact, Insurrection, and Nemesis), I thought I might try to do my own version of a Season 8, cutting each movie into two 45-minute episodes, reframing to 4:3, adjusting lighting to more closely match TNG, and replace the (admittedly good) movie soundtracks with the TV score. I think this would be a lot more work for the Enterprise-E movies than for Generations, but it would still be a lot of work regardless.
