Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, 1982:
Spock lays dying in the Engine Room after saving the ship whilst Kirk is unaware on the bridge, McCoy signals the bridge and says: 'Better get down here, better hurry'

Star Trek Into Darkness, 2013:
Kirk lays dying in the Engine Room after saving the ship whilst Spock is unaware on the bridge, Scotty signals the bridge and says: 'Better get down here, better hurry'

Its so blatantly a replay of TWOK that even the dialogue is the same! Just certain roles have been swapped around and then theres the whole glass thing going on and again a different character screaming 'KHAAAAAAAAAAN!'

I just don't know what the scriptwriters were thinking when they came up with this? I assume they were high when these pages got written?

I think it would have worked perfectly well for me if I had not seen TWOK 500 times over 20 years but nevermind... I will get used to it I suppose! But FFS writers, please don't try this shit again because my brain will explode next time.
