post 'em here! don't want to spoil surprises by posting in the star trek thread.
No, it was stupid, dumb, and extremely unnecessary.t
kirk's "death scene", with the exact mirror-image dialogue of spock's death scene from WRATH OF KHAN, was pure movie brilliance.
who's to say the blood of the others would have worked? mccoy didn't know whether the others were the same type of super soldier or even super soldiers at all. plus, they said the frozen crew members had to be thawed out using a very specific process, which mccoy likely didn't know. not to mention the fact that they needed the cure immediately, as kirk could not stay "dead" for long.This movie had some of the dumbest most obvious retarded plot holes.
HEY ASSHOLE WRITERS, WHY BOTHER GOING ON A GREEN SCREEN FOOT CHASE TO GET KHAN SO YOU CAN GET HIS UBER BLOOD WHEN YOU'VE GOT 70 MORE OF THE FUCKERS FROZEN ON ICE!!!!!!
new star wars is being written by michael arndt and will have george lucas, kathleen kennedy and lawrence kasdan as story consultants. j.j. abrams is only directing.i'm not having too much hope for the new star wars movies.....
it was a brilliant idea and scene. it was kirk realizing that he is not invincible and that he, like khan, will do anything to save his crew. although they have not been friends long, kirk's death makes spock feels true loss for the first time since his planet exploded. i don't think the scene was cheapened because they had been friends for a few years instead of decades.No, it was stupid, dumb, and extremely unnecessary.
See, the wrath of khan had all that build up to that point was because kirk and spock were friends for goddamn decades! It was kirks moment where he finally realized he could no longer cheat his death and have to deal with mortality.
