And now, this Spock actually has an admission that his father really loved his mother, something Spock Prime NEVER had.
This is so true. This Spock has found a bond with his father. The bond of love, of shared grief, shared loss. And also, old Spock had a strong Vulcan society to rebel against all his life. The ones who asked if he was Vulcan or if he was human. This young Spock won't face that at all. His society has been destroyed. I wonder if this young one will become increasingly human? On the one hand, it would be a bit sad to lose the cool, emotionless facade but on the other hand it would be great to lose that awful haircut. Quinto looks better with swept back hair than with bangs.

My favorite moment was the end of the movie. The Enterprise is about to head out and the crew was all know act respectfully and friendly towards one another. Then Spock said "Space, the final frontier..."

Absolutely...still sticks in my head. GREAT opening scene to a movie!

I also liked the Sarek/Spock scenes. Except for the first one where he tells Spock he married Amanda because it was "only logical", every other scene was a suprise. I kept waiting for the disparaging remarks from Sarek to Spock, but they never came. Definitely a different father-son relationship then what we saw in the prime reality!

And the Kirk/Spock scenes. We first met them in the prime reality as having that respect for each other, and you could see the start of the friendship. Very cool to see them hating each other, while we all know how they end up!

And every scene with McCoy...Urban was awesome! Hopefully he and Scotty will get bigger roles (besides comedic) in the next one.

So in review....basically the whole movie was my favorite scene!!

yes...it's a love fest for me...it's like "ooo...I love his eyes, I love his nose, I love the way he coughs..." It can be wrong and bad but I still love it.

I keep forgetting to add it, and figured someone else would post something about it, but....

....I LOVED "Sabatoge" being played in the movie!!! Grew up with the Beastie Boys (not my all time favorite band, but definitely tops on the list!)

I thought it was cool to hear that. That scene alone shows you three links to our time:

1. Corvette
2. Beastie Boys
3. Nokia

Someone must have been a BB fan to put that in the movie!

BTW, I also liked it because I could just hear the purists cringing...

And isn't it ironic that in the other (original) Trek universe, Kirk sat on a bus across from a punk rocker (played by Kirk Thatcher who was a member of the production crew of ST IV) and asks him to turn down "that noise".

1: Bones' introduction.
2: "Hello. This is Nero."
3: The ongoing gag re Uhura's first name never having once been spoken in all the prior episodes and movies.

For me, it had to be the Titan. When the girl started climbing out of the atmosphere, it looked like a predator going for the kill. I guess that was the very moment I fell in love with the new Enterprise.

Then again, the movie had loads of epic scenes. I laughed my *** off when Kirk was in Kobayashi Maru simulation, acting all goofy and the others going "what the hell is he doing?!?"
