Well, it's not weird in the sense that A) you're not alone and B) when I was a kid (say around 10-12) I used to watch the same movies 30-40 times over a period of a few weeks or months, and then moved on. I think most kids are like that (maybe).

What's unusual (read: out of the ordinary; it's not pejorative) is that you keep doing it after so much time, and so late in life.

I'm glad you enjoy the movie that much. But I couldn't do that anymore, myself. Too many good movies to see again !

Precisely. Many people don't understand why others watch a movie more than once. To me it's like music, only a bit longer than your usual album: your appreciation of the product changes over time, and you want to go through the whole thing at least once in a while.
It's like coming back to an old friend. Honestly, every time I watch it I see something new.

I certainly watch it a lot less now.

I'm on a bit of a TSFS run at the moment. I've probably only seen that 100-200 times
Clearly you hate Spock to have watched him die 500 times and only bring him back 100-200 times.
You know, its true I have killed his death scene for me somewhat now by overwatching it.

If you watch the scene now - there is a cadet swaying in the background which my eye is always drawn to. His "radiation poisoning" acting (if that's what it is) is distracting and bordering on ridiculous.

Holy shit! I never noticed that before. I hope it doesn't distract me the next time I watch the movie.

As it is, I always pay too much attention to the elderly Chinese guy Kirk bumps into when he runs into engineering. In fact, it was only on my most recent viewing that I noticed the guy can also be seen in the torpedo bay during the funeral.

There's also the third person (besides Scotty and McCoy) who tries to hold him back as he's running toward Spock. I don't know who he's supposed to be. He just lowers his shoulder into Kirk's midsection to keep him from moving.

I just figured he loves his CO way too much.

I just figured he's the lowest ranking guy around, and if two senior officers die, he's the one that's gonna get blamed.

Then shouldn't he have tried to get to Spock himself? After all, Kirk was only visiting because Enterprise had originally been on a training cruise.

Something else I also noticed on viewing #474

Look closely at the tactical station behind Spock just after the initial battle with Khan.

Spock has beamed over to the reliant!

If I could change one thing in this movie it would be to edit out Amazing Grace.

Actually, it makes sense to have that there. Remember that Spock entered the Reliant's prefix code just moments earlier to lower its shields, so it's possible a schematic of the ship appeared on the tactical display to confirm that the shields were down.

What's wrong with "Amazing Grace?"

Nice. I would never have thought of that. Of course, in the real world, it was a mistake, but that's an elegant way to explain it in-universe.

Re: More than a normal person...

The song makes zero sense being played at the funeral of a Vulcan. What they couldn't find a traditional Vulcan funeral ditty in the database?

How do you know Spock didn't request such a song in the event of his death? He was half human, after all.

A christian hymn? That's a huge stretch.

I agree it's a stretch, but it's not impossible.

Re: More than a normal person...

Someone better than me can read the lyrics and tell me what appeal this would have to Spock.

These are the bogstandard ones, there's a lot more verses but they're usually trimmed to this set:

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.


I always loved that last verse, though it does bring to mind the Organians
