I teared up when the Enterprise went down in flames in STIII.

Despite what they say about the "message" of Roddenberry's optimism being in this film, I don't get the vibe the story ends well.
Yeah, I get the impression we're in for a cliffhanger ending.
Someone (I think it was Pine) said a while ago in an interview that had no idea how Star Trek was supposed to continue after the end of STID, or at least it was something to that effect. But he said he was sure that the writers would think of something.

I can't find that snippet anymore, it was over on Trekweb months ago ... does anyone remember?

That was another moment that was hard to witness. But SO epic!

It was on SyFy this week, and I came across the last 20 minutes while channel surfing. I watched it, and I STILL teared up twenty years later. It usually starts when Spock says Kirk should tell Starfleet Command to go to hell.
Yep.

Re: Abrams: Expect To Cry

The only Star Trek movie that ever made me cry was The Wrath of Kahn, don't bet on it. These characters have been in one movie together, why should I care what happens to them when I have not had any time to develop any emotional attachment to them? It doesn't help when I can only see them as a pale imitation of the original TOS crew.

Re: Abrams: Expect To Cry

So you've never cried (or felt some sort of sadness) for the fate of any character in a film where it was your first ever encounter with that character? Wow. I can understand not caring about a set of characters because you didn't like a movie (Trek or otherwise), but do you really need repeated and prolonged exposure, over several films, to "care" about any character at all?

Yeah, but we know that Kirk and Spock etc are running around doing just fine in the Prime Universe, so I give as much of a shit about these new guys as I do that Riker who got blown up in that Borg war universe in Parallels

Re: Abrams: Expect To Cry

George Kirk's suicide run and Amanda's death left huge lumps in my throat. No other Trek has had that effect on me, with the exception of crying over Tasha's death when I was 5.

I didn't believe for a second that it was really the end. And indeed, most of the characters popped up again here and there in TNG and others. Chekov and Uhura were back as recently as a few years ago in the fan film Of Gods and Men!

We met Shabby Riker about one minute before his Enterprise blew up. We have seen a 2 hour film of these new guys, and will get another 2 hour film to get better acquanited with them.

Using your logic, we can't care about any original movie character (any original character in any original movie) simply because that the character is not someone we already know or have cared about before the movie. I have seen plenty of films that featured original characters whom I grew to care about during the film.

I think Abrams and company did a decent job making me care about most of the characters in the first film -- although being an origin film, the creative didn't have a lot of time to do so. I think I will care even more about them in this second film as I learn more about them and watch them interact.

The only movie that I came close to crying was Cinderella.

We'll see with this.

Was it when the glass slipper fit? That was a wonderful moment.

C'mon, you didn't even come close to crying in "Bambi"?

Re: Abrams: Expect To Cry

Well, the first ten minutes of Trek 09 were very emotional. I didn't shed a tear, but the sheer brutality of the attack and the echoey near-silence of Kirk's birth combined with Giacchino's score was very moving. I also got a little choked up during the shuttle sequence when the new Enterprise was revealed. It was treated with such adoration and respect that it felt a little like coming home again.

Speaking of Giacchino, he can really bring the tears when the situation requires. The first eight minutes of Up are virtually unwatchable for me. I get emotional even thinking of them and the music was a big part of that. Given the right material to work with, he might be enough to push me over the edge. We'll see.

Of course, I also cried at the end of 'Armageddon,' so what the hell do I know? "Harry, no!"

I'm a big boohooer, but originally on seeing TWOK, I held on until Kirk got that hitch in his throat...then it was all over.
When Radiated Spock gave Kirk the "V" sign some heartless bastard next to me whispered "Live Long and Phospher," and I laughed my ass off.
