One thing that New Spock Cannot Do

Perhaps I have missed it, but it appears that new Spock cannot raise his right eyebrow. Am I right?

No but McCoy did sitting in the shuttle behind Kirk when Carol was introducing herself.

Re: One thing that New Spock Cannot Do

I believe I've seen it occur once or twice.

I'm pretty sure he did it at least once in the first film.

Re: One thing that New Spock Cannot Do

All of Quinto's eyebrow raises are done by ILM in CGI. It costs 3.7 million dollars to do each time, so they keep it to a minimum...

Re: One thing that New Spock Cannot Do

Pretty sure in Trek 09 he raises his right eyebrow after meeting Spock Prime in the hangar.

Confirmed - just checked it.

Has someone written a doctorate on Vulcan eyebrow language yet?
Like left eyebrow 10 degrees means bored. right eyebrow 20 degrees amused, eyebrow in hair - you are being illogical Dr McCoy etc.
Whats the effect of being mono-eyebrowed?

For some reason I excised the specific point of contention about sides... You're right. He never does raise his right brow.

CURSE YOU JJ ABRAMS AND/OR ZACHARY QUINTO!!! Star Trek will forever be ruined now.

The next movie should be called "Star Trek Into Eyebrows."
