That along with Spock being a Vulcan-what would be the point of Vulcans as being being non extremely logical and non emotional, if they show him losing his composure?
Losing his composure repeatedly. I mean, I can handle him getting upset now and then, but it seems like it's all he does.
I realize that NuSpock is not OldSpock, but again, one cannot help making comparisons, and NuSpock barely ever does anything which reminds us that he's supposed to be half Vulcan.
But yeah, I'd rather have had the same movie, without John being revealed to be Khan.
Also, I don't think anyone was saying they don't expect Spock to give a damn AT ALL that Kirk died, but rather, that the scene in TWOK has more impact because of the history.
