I don't think the point is to say the new one is better, but that it's supposed to be appreciated as being connected to the original one.
I liked it for the most part, but I could have done without Spock shouting Khan. That's been parodied too many times that it was hard to take seriously.
I liked the Spock shout because it had foundation. He speaks of suppressing his feelings of loss for Vulcan, he absorbs the death of Pike through a mind-meld. Spock here is on the edge and the loss of Kirk shatters what little composure he has left.
Some say that he was the first choice to play the new Doctor but turned it down when he couldn't put racing stripes on the TARDIS.
All we know is, he's called The Stig.
