Re: remade scene? (spoilers)

When I saw the scene, my reaction was "Seriously? You're actually doing this?" everytime they copied an aspect of the scene. It actually got to the point that when Spock ran into engineering I asked "where's the elderly Chinese guy? Isn't Spock supposed to bump into an elderly Chinese guy?"

Even among people I know in real life (people who love the Abrams series) the remake of Spock's death isn't going over well at all. I know a guy who saw Trek XI multiple times in theatres and has seen STID at least twice so far who said copying Spock's death scene and switching Kirk and Spock was "really cheesy."
