    That is a good scene. The movie as a whole is often laughably bad, though, imo.

    In the next movie, somebody else is going to need their pain lol... Maybe Sulu? :)

    McCoy: We have medicine for that.

    Sulu: I need my pain.

    Kirk's "I need my pain" speech is a bombastic embarrassment that makes the character out to be a self-dramatizing adolescent. It's fascinating that some folks seem to identify with it as if it somehow enlarges or enriches the character, when it fact it's of a piece with the nonsensical and ego-pandering "free climbing" scene that introduces Kirk in the movie.

    But I love my Kirk bombastic and adolescent. It's sexy.

    I think the scene is truthful in a way that most of the movie is not. It's not necessarily flattering to him, but that's why it stands out.

    Basically it exposes a part of the character's personality you might not otherwise see.

    Thank you!

    This is the one "film" that I refuse to purchase. When friends ask me about the missing number V in my collection, I reply that no fifth movie exists in my reality. The thought of using any of the material from this material makes me shudder!

    I happily accept Star Trek Into Darkness as a movie. I hold a tiny (and constantly diminishing) hope for a new series some day, but until that series arrives I appreciate the Star Trek that I have.

    I am a big fan of star trek and have watched very episode of original series, next generation, ds9, and all the feature films. With that being said I loved it. Without a doubt this movie is now my favorite star trek movie ( sorry wrath of kahn) my family loved it and parts such as the kahn scream which I was holding my breath for didn't seem that bad. in fact the scream only lasted 2 seconds before the cut to another scene so I dont see the big deal. The only part I didnot like was that the villain is khan but I think it worked out good in the end. Also the Kirk death scene was not a copy of the original they added plenty of new dialog and there was only 3 short lines they copied. Lastly the audience greatly enjoyed it and laughed at all the funny parts.

    Shandee my review of V as patched together from my fangirling. I post it here to try and convert you :D


    I thought it was pretty exciting, great pace, very camp in parts but it felt like TRIBUTE CAMP, the camp of love.

    The Kirk, Spock, McCoy bonding was intense. In a good way. McCoy's line, "I liked him better when he was dead." has me :lol: every time. BEST Big Three scenes in all the movies.

    It has a GREAT opening sequence. I think the whole movie is one big bag of excellent candy. Eye candy, mind candy, laugh candy, heart candy.. and it's a mystery to me why so many think it terrible.

    Nice try Teacake!, but I'm afraid in this case I am not convertible (and that is probably a good thing...I'd look silly as a car!)

    I've certainly heard that many times from fans. I've never really connected with it that way, but quite a few people do.

    Yes, just what the Trek Franchise needs: CumberKhan, NuKirk and NuSpock stuck in a shuttle in Klingon space singing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat..."

    Torches and Pitchforks time, ladies and gentlemen....
