Yup, most people when I went to see it were tearing up at Kirk's death and didn't laugh or deride 'the line' at all, they all took it seriously.

Now that I remember, Spocks "Khan" scream didn't really have echoes in it as his scream was followed by the USS Vengeance crashing down to earth and narrowly missing the Enterprise by what looked like inches!
That bit made me jump it was so close
And all this time, I actually thought the ship shown crashing in the water in the trailers was the Enterprise... It turned out to be the Vengeance....

Kirk would've died in vain though if the Enterprise did crash due to a collision with a falling Vengeance...

Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

Saw the film (fantastic by the way) and I saw the line: All right I didn't like it, I thought it was kinda silly, but not for the reason you may think, no, it was silly because of Zach Quinto's voice. I expected a growl and a roar, not the kinda wimpy, weak voice we got.

Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

I appreciate the nods to us older fans but most of the time it just cheapens it. I mean when nu spock says '' The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one'' it had none of the depth, was nowhere near as poiniant as when prime spock said it.

Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

I totally giggled when it happened, like just about everybody else in the packed theater. Let's face it, though. It's not really the same line unless it echoes repeatedly in the bowels of Regula. And speaking of Regula, how and why does Carol Marcus speak with an accent? That's the real mystery to me.

Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

I must ask, and this is as someone who loves the TWOK and that scene, to those in the theater in 1982, how was the Khannnnnn moment received? Was it supposed to be a fuck ya clap your hands this is great moment? Or was it received in a way where people were completely focused on the drama. If you really think about that scene, it's pretty strange, especially when it's echoing out into space. That's why it's probably such a tongue in cheek joke now.

Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

I thought it worked well. Yeah, a bit cheesy, but here's the thing. Spock is the strong, silent type. Seeing Kirk die right in front of him, filled him with anger and determination to go and get Khan. Yelling a little helped demonstrate how angry he was becoming.

Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

My absolutely only complaint with this movie are the scenes that mirror Space Seed or TWOK. It's a great movie and IMHO I think it would have been better if they kept everything as it, but made Harrison someone other than Khan.

Even if you just give him another name and left him as an augment, they could have still contacted Spock prime, just generalize to augment and then Spock prime could still warn against the augments and pay tribute to Khan. They could have even thrown in a reference to Erik Soong from Enterprise.

I was actually okay with the engineering death scene for the most part too, but make it less of a rip off of TWOK. Just eliminate the screen, or at least do it at a point that makes more sense and isn't seen coming from a mile away.


I left the theater disappointed, I wanted to love the film, but felt like I was cheated, because as soon as we knew about Harrison's blood about 75% of the rest of the film was given away.

That said, I want to repeat that I like the movie in general, but I'm going back to see it again in hopes that I'll enjoy it more now that I'm not expecting a completely original storyline.

Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

I once commented that I couldn't see Pine pulling off the yell and well, Quinto pulled it off pretty well to me. What turned me off more than anything was Kirk's resurrection because superhuman DNA can cure death by radiation poisoning. It just took any substance out of the scene and cheapened it. Once again the reset button was pushed.

Cheapened it a ton! Leave him dead for at least the end of a flick. Then, I guess you have to do some kaatra bs in movie 3. I really thought he would die for a while. Whatever. Just a brief detour. I also thought Chekov might bite the big one b/c of red shirt. Speaking of which, Scotty doesn't have an associate chief to take over?

Not the most successful when you adjust for inflation and modern ticket prices. It's in the top 20 though.

Re: Spock's line *Major Major Spoilers*

It really was weird and unnecessary. People laughed and it wasn't a scene you were supposed to laugh at.
