^Are you talking about TSFS? If so, I agree re the best character moments. However, the last 1/4 hour was THE most boring few minutes in a Trek movie since TMP's last 1/2 hour.
Yup.

I also agree that once they leave Genesis, it's Snoozeville.
Part of me thinks it is snoozeville once they get out of spacedock.

But another part agrees with you, if you'll push your assessment back 2 minutes to include McCoy's monologue to Spock, which feels like De's best moment since THE EMPATH and BREAD & CIRCUSES.
Kelley's scene there is good. I think they might've needed to reorder the scenes somewhere (I don't know how) to maybe make the tempo of the last fifteen or so minutes seem a little more upbeat.
