I had hopes the "w" would have been corrected in this version of Trek.

Granted, these are earlier versions of the characters and they have yet to evolve
This in mind, my opinion is, that all works out quite believable for the "early" years in their development according to the circumstances.

Only Spock calling Kirk "Jim" just after a short gunfight in the Narada seems a bit early and overplayed for me.

Spock may be more aggressive, emotional, inbalanced etc. - but he was always very polite and reserved in using fornames or shortcuts.

I wondered at once, if I had missed something, when he said this simple "Jim" in the Jellyfish.
"I like this movie, it's exciting."

I also agree, Spock's first "Jim" was premature.
