And then, "the line".

About 3 months ago I went to a screening of Wrath of Khan and whilst it was a friendly croud, there were plenty of people who I'm not sure were Star Trek fans laughing ironically during Kirk's "Khaaaaaaan!". Laughing. Laughing out loud.

This may happen again. Only this time, it might be us.
I burst out laughing when I heard it, though not loudly. Didn't hear other people guffawing or anything.

I think someone might have been aiming for a new internet meme, and this will no doubt happen if it hasn't already.

Anyway, maybe it came pretty close to farcical, but it didn't ruin the movie for this viewer. Would still rate it as an excellent rollercoaster ride with some great dialogue and acting and not too much egregious use of special effects.

After seeing the movie I tracked down all the clips on Youtube which I'd avoided. They put it in the Spock Disruption one.

Re: Spocks line *Major Major Spoilers*

Sorry but I don't see the problem, Quinto's performance sold it for me, he'd been bottling up a hell of a lot of emotion for who knows how long, it was a plot point throughout the film, it was eating at him the entire time, the meld with Pike only brought him more hopelessness then he watched his best friend die inches away. No one else in the theatre today had a problem with it either.

I didn't, I thought it was great. The whole scene I thought was well realised and I enjoyed the flipped took scene.

The Khan scream did raise a smile though, but I thought it worked.

Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

I laughed. I pretty much knew that, once Kahn was revealed as the villain, someone was going to yell KAHN!!! at some point. This movie was, in large part, a nostalgia piece, riffing on stuff we remember from the original series (miniskirts, Kirk banging alien chicks, Spock being logical, etc), but with not a lot of sense to it at times. It was ridiculous and unrealistic, but I admit I laughed out loud at the reference.

I wonder why nobody jumped on that scene when the clip had been released. Probably because no one in their wildest nightmares ever thought that they were going to let Spock yell Khaaaaan!

Same. I thought it was great, particularly when followed up by that amazing shot of the Vengeance flying past the Enterprise.

Oh God, I can't tell you how ridiculous I find his facial expression! He really doesn't have a face that's able to do this and still look cool, sorry. I just looks soooo fake, acted and put on.
