Default Re: (Spoilers) Did Anyone Else Find It Sad...

This scene struck me as rather derivative of the scene at the beginning of Trek '09 (starring Chris Hemsworth, oddly enough). The structure was very similar: the hero crashing his ship intentionally to save others, the long-distance conversation with his love interest, the simplicity of the subject matter being discussed lending poignancy to the impending disaster, etc.

It was effectively staged (though somewhat less so, I thought, than in Trek '09), but the similarity was strong enough that it detracted a bit from my immersion and emotional involvement in this case.
