If I want people's wild ass opinions about how the movie is fail because Quinto said it was a collaborative effort I can just stay right here in this thread, no need to google for more of it
That's all any of this is though, isn't it?
I'll tell you something else, people are talking about he death of a major character too, it wouldn't surprise me if like TWOK, that major character is Spock.
First movie, encounters major anomaly, defeats it. TMP/ST2009
Second movie, defeats major baddie, someone dies. TWOK/STID
Third movie, redemption, friendship and reunion. TSFS/TBA
I don't think this is lost on Abrams either, it's his nod to the TOS movies, what's more 'into darkness' than death? Spock dies a fiery death saving his shipmates.
