The argo, yeah i guess the vehicle would be a bit better than a shuttle, but meh

The whole Troi mind ****, it was SO unnecessary, 'what does this film need?' Mind ****. that's what nee.. uhm

Similar to unnecessary, when shinzon is impaled, he then squiges up further impaling himself to have a chat with picard.. yummy.

The scene when a reman boarding party was on the ship, shinzon's aide and riker fight on a rickety gantry over a bottomless pit.. someone explain how that adheres to health and safety regs on a starship :p

The remans themselves, yeah it adds to the romulus/remus silliness but it feels like they were wrote in simply to excuse the troi aggro i have >.<

ANY Mirror/echo/Voice metaphors, MY GOD i was sick of hearing them. 'i am the voice' 'i am your mirror' 'he's not your mirror he doesnt have a goatee' 'the echo will outlast the voice' SHARRUP! >.<

Some things kinda felt unexplained,
Shinzon baits the enterprise and picard.. with a 'older than data' Soong prototype, where the hell did he get that >.>

Shinzon's motivation for revenge, that was something i didnt understand too..
-the romulans made me, the romulans cast me into the mine, the romulans forgot about me... therefore picard and earth must die. *ahem* someone find the logic in that please

Like someone already mentioned, shinzon's actions of; I am dying... i have the power to snatch him from his ship.. lets have a natter, get to know him, **** a close friend, then wonder why I die?

And finally there was something that felt unnecessary midway through the space confrontation, the dropping the cloak bit, yes it bring the valdur closer, but could he have not just moved the ship slightly then fired? (honestly i dont understand why that happened other than dramatic shouting and explosions)
Picard had to die so Shinzon could live. Ultimately, everything which happened was part of Shinzon's plan to bring Picard to him... B4 was placed on Colarus so the Enterprise would be most likely to investigate, and thus be close enough to the Neutral Zone to be the closest ship to respond to a diplomatic invitation, so the Romulan senate had to die so Shinzon would be in a position of authoritah to extend the invitation to the Federation... Other than that, yeah, I quite agree with the points you made (was awesome seeing Bryan Singer's cameo, and him then getting sucked through the void where the forward viewscreen used to be ) The scene between Riker and Shinzon's viceroy (can't even remember his name ) was a pretty good example of pointless, and just existed to give Riker the opportunity to kick the ass of the guy who mindraped his wife... As for the gantry, Geordi obviously saw the gantry Kirk fell to his death in, and thought "When I get me a new ship, I'm getting this Piece of History installed, no one will notice..."
