Wang Chung said to have fun tonight. I don't know where you're at, but it's a little after 11 AM here. Sorry, no fun allowed.

As far as where I am, that's my zipcode in the "location" area.

Re: Nero: "It happened! I saw it happen..."

It's funny to me that people don't like the line. For me, this is the line that sold me on Nero. We've seen the crazy madman wants revenge plenty of times in Trek's past, but with this line, Bana convinced me that he was playing someone who was hurt, not just insane. It was something we'd never seen in a Trek film before, it humanized the villain in a really subtle way (that sadly, I don't think is in the screenplay, just the performance) and I thought it was great.

"...I watched it happen! Don't tell me it didn't happen!"

The overuse of the word "happen" in this sequence of dialogue makes me laugh like nothing else.

A friend of mine suggested that this was a pattern in the film, things being repeated in different ways for emphasis for the slow and stupid among the viewers...(cf. the sequence about the "alternate universe" between nuSpock etc. later).

I mean four times? Yes we get it, Nero's upset that Romulus was destroyed...but do you really have to repeat it to Pike that many times?

Also, Nero's accent sounded to me closer to a Southerner than a Romulan.
I liked it when Nero would always respond with a simple "Hello" when he was hailed. Usually a greeting is something formal, but not with Nero

I know that I KNOW this line, but where is it from? Now that I have read it, it is driving me mad.

The fact there are only two examples of this is pretty good for a Star Trek film, which usually lays and spells everything out for people, then beats them over the head with it.
Really. Anyone looking for "subtle" in a Star Trek movie is lost before they begin.

Slow and stupid? If anything, this movie seems to have managed to attract a whole lot of people who've been too smart to get sucked into the whole Star Trek thing in recent years.

Troi in First Contact, I think. She's a bit sloshed at the time.

Yeah it's the scene in the cantina where they're trying to persuade Cochrane to go through with his first flight. She's trying to fit in with the local populace
