I preferred the new over the old. I was choking up throught the scene, especially when Spock said, "...because you are my friend."
The original never had any emotional impact on me, but that may be because I'd already seen IV and V, and knew Spock was gonna somehow get better. The same would likely be true of the new if they'd gotten the obvious-in-retrospect Tribble scene hint.
We're a little different. That was the part, along with the tear, that really didn't work for me, and then we got to the scream. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself, though.
