Speaking of cutesy humor in ST movies, "Row, row, row your boat" was the nadir. Absolute worst ever. Cringe-in-the-movie-theatre bad.

I thought it was charming. These three old coots love each other, in their own ways.

Yeah. You gotta cut them some slack. I think there was some alcohol involved, too. The moments around the campfire were touching. All three know they only have each other, and they're just fine with it. It could be a such a melancholy moment. They could come across as three lonely guys who gave their lives to service. But it's not that way. They are happy and satisfied with each other.

Frankly, I'd watch Kirk, Spock, and McCoy paint a room together.

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I actually did like the "lighter" moments in INSURRECTION just because it's nice to see the TNG crew loosen up after two heavy films. I think going for something lighthearted like THE VOYAGE HOME was the right call by Piller, but the suits wanted it to be an action film as well so it ended up as a jumbled mess.

ST09 isn't the worst film, but it does have the worst moment with Kirk running around with Nutty Professor hands. That attempt at slapstick comedy is just aaaaaaawwwful, especially given the context of Kirk trying to warn everyone of impending doom. This is why I usually lump the film with the TRANSFORMERS flicks, because it feels like something you'd see Shia doing on those flicks, frantically running around on a comedic note.

It's an odd choice for 'worst' moment. I'd have thought that Data's 'boob' comment would take that particular prize.

So, Data's comment wins the "booby prize?"

Thank you. I'll show myself out.

Insurrection was the closest to the TNG cast to enter into TOS-style campyness. I loved it for that reason.

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm new to the board, so here's my opinion:

I really enjoyed the film. Thought it was awesome and was surprised to find that some hardcore fans like me disliked it intensely.

Kirk is my hero, but even I was not bothered by Spock's "KHAAAN!"

Cumberbatch was a great villain. Loved the cast all around.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Nimoy's cameo was not integral to the story, but any excuse to have Nimoy as Spock in a Star Trek movie is a good one IMO.

My only complaint, (that I can remember because I haven't seen it in a few months), was that there wasn't enough Karl Urban.

The film made me excited to see more of the Klingons.

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Saw it. I found it average. I was not happy with the film being so fast paced. I wish they had taken time to let the characters interact more peacefully and without all the action every 2 minutes. People ask where is Bones.

I do not think we will be getting more Bones. the writers have said that their film is based on Kirk and Spock. So Bones has not being invited to join the fraternity.

I also did not like the rehashing of spock's death. I wanted the film to have been original like the first film was.For some weird reason the rehearsing of wrath of khan left me cheated.

That scene from the 1982 film is iconic and the most popular scene in trek, it should not be touched...ever...again.

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

So, when I saw it in theaters I really loved it. I had some issues with it but I left the theatre entertained. Since then I've re watched it twice and I've liked it less each time. My favorite thing about Star Trek is rewatch ability. You can see episodes of the show many times and get more things out of it each time. Even Star Trek (2009), I've enjoyed when rewatching, but STID I just haven't enjoyed as much. Its a great popcorn movie but it lacks the core of what makes Star Trek a one of a kind franchise. I just wish I could better articulate what that is exactly..

It's not iconic--not even in the Alanis Morissette. Wait. That's ironic. Eh. You know what I mean.

Even still, it's not even the most recognized or familiar scene in Star Trek. That's be the Gorn fight. Perhaps "Risk is our business!"

Managed one rewatch and I don't think I'll get further than that. I tried yesterday and as they were setting up the Godfather III Starfleet massacre sequence, my brain was like: "Hang on, this is Netflix. They also have Scott Pilgrim." All she wrote.
