I haven't read the entire thread yet, and I've been avoiding threads with spoilers, so if these points have already been covered I apologize.
I loved the film and plan to see it again. I especially enjoyed all the "McCoyisms" and I though Sarek was excellent.
I have only two complaints.
1. What's with the stubby eared vulcanoids? Vulcans should have elegant ears. These guys look like they all got pit bull crops.
2. Spock and Uhura sucking face. Not. Cool.
