Chekov was unable to get a lock because Khan was moving around.
This would be the same Chekov who got a lock on Kirk and Sulu as they fell (and accelerated) towards the surface of Vulcan?
There was also interference after the Vengeance crashed, blocking incoming signals.

Which is why they should have more experienced officers in key positions, such as Lieutenant Kyle manning the transporters instead of some teenager who should still be an Academy freshman.
Because it is a God-damned movie and Yelchin is one of the secondary stars. It isn't the fucking real life military. I was able to figure out how movies work when I was watching as a kid in the 1970's.
Yep, I sometimes wonder whether compulsion with irrelevant minutiae is an impediment to just sitting down and enjoying a film on pure entertainment value.

If only it had entertainment value (yeah yeah, I know, box office hit, rotten tomatoes, average joes).

If it only had entertainment value, to you.

I felt entertained. Sorry if you didn't. That happens. There are those who post here who think TMP is a work of art. I'm hardly one of them, but that's he way it goes.

This is probably been said by others many times, but no one is trying to say STID didn't have detractors, only that they seem to be outnumbered fairly significantly by those who were largely positive about the movie (you know, box office hit, Rotten Tomatoes, average Joes). By most indications that are used to measure success, the movie was well-received.

I will say it would be hard to look forward to a movie for so long and then be disappointed by it. That's kind of how I felt about TMP. Not a flop, but not what I was expecting, either.

I noticed another nod to TWOK when watching STID again the other day. Kirk, Spock, and McCoy discussing something when Spock mentions logic. Then McCoy has a line that nearly gets lost in overlapping dialogue, along the lines of "Logic! My God, the man's talking about logic! We're talking--"

Spock screamed Khannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

So I re-watched the film and I could not help but laugh when Spock screamed Khan.it was so darn funny.

I do not know, I guess I have changed my views from when I saw the film in cinema. I actually cringed when I saw spock scream khan in cinema because I felt embarrassment for Quinto but now that I watch the film at home, I find the part very funny and a little enduring. sometimes when something is bad and at the same time funny it becomes fun to watch.

Maybe people feel different but that screen overall is one of the worst moment in trek history for me personally, however it is Funny to watch and very enduring.

I would personally not have out it in the film but oh well what can we do
I cringed at the theater. Now I think it sets up the Vengeance flyby quite nicely.

It's not my style to laugh when bad things happen to innocent people
I mean Zachary Quinto. I hope they did the scene no more than once for the sake of his poor vocal cords...

to this day I still don't get why they put it there, honestly. Perhaps to wake up those who inevitably fall asleep during the movies? It's like first they try to make the audience cry and then they abruptly pull you out of the drama

I laughed later, though, thinking about the fans that called Spock out of character in the first movie because he cared for mommy and kissed his girlfriend...

It would have been more effective if Spock had just whispered "No."

I don't have a problem with the principle of Spock yelling Khan because it was a gift by Abrams for us fans (whether you wanted that gift or not).
I have a problem with Spock being that affected by Kirk's death.
Were they best friends at that stage? Were they even friends at all? By watching the rest of the film and not knowing anything about TOS kirk and Spock I would say No.

No, I didn't laugh. It didn't bother me as I was engrossed in the film, but the girl in front of our row called out "Ooh, he mad!" when she saw that, and THAT made me laugh.

Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure I heard laughter in the theater.

Like an embarrassing little trekkie nerd I was really angry. I felt like JJ (who right up to that moment I adored) had pissed all over a sacred event.

I got over it, I'm fine about it now, I still adore JJ. It makes me laugh how visceral my first reaction was, how.. territorial.
