Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

First time I hated it.

Second time I forgave it and kind of was touched by Spock's emotions..

Going a third time tonight, hopefully I will fall in love.

It was unbelievably awful, and took me right out of the film. I couldn't believe they did something so stupid.

Had Spock gone ice cold and not said a word, walked to the transporter and turned into a ragemonster when he got face-to-face with Khan, it would have been fucking brilliant. Instead they went into bad fanfic/parody mode

Spock could even have yelled "KHAAAAN!" as he fled, as a "come back here and fight me you coward" -type thing. That would have worked too.
Exactly what I thought when I saw it. He could've yelled it before chasing him through the streets, or while chasing him on those flying trucks. That would've been so much better than what they gave us.

I liked the film, but that moment was one that I tried to forget as soon as it happened. As a matter of fact, I think the TWOK scene would've worked better if there'd been a lot less dialogue to it. The only line of dialogue they really needed there was "it's what you would've done."

Why would Spock do that? He didn't yell when Nero killed his mom.
Spock was in shock when his Mom died.

In all honesty, I didn't mind the yell. Slightly out of character for Spock, but this was a younger Spock. His emotions got the better of him.

It rehashed the third act of TWOK, they put Khan on ice, end of movie. It wasn't very interesting, IMO, but flat. I would have liked some kind of twist. Perhaps Kirk agrees to let Khan get stranded on a planet, as he did in "Space Seed" or something.
You think that would've been a twist?

The film uses one specific element from TWoK, that's hardly a whole act.
A better punishment would have been to have him be sent to a rehabilitation colony, where (if the technology exists) his personality is replaced with a new one, as is done on Babylon 5.

Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

In my theater, when Khan announced his name several people guffaw'ed (as if they couldn't have figured it out when they showed that the 70 odd torpedoes contained cryogens...) and I was a little let down but as the film progressed I slowly started thinking things like "Ricardo who?"

Then came the radiation death scene and the only thing I was thinking was, "Please don't say 'Oh my" please don't say "oh my" please don't say 'oh my'" and he didn't.

and then I facepalmed... quite the rollercoaster, this film!

I still loved this film and as a sequel or remake (a requel?) it was really well done. I later looked at a pic of Montalban as Khan with all that lovely hair and snickered that THIS guy couldn't take out a whole squad of Klingons and decided to go into my second viewing with less fanwanky expectations.

I don't know if this was intended to be the funniest moment in Star Trek history, but I damn near laughed myself out of my seat.

I don't see how anyone could fail to enjoy it.
