As for what in the film made some think there might be "hope" - for me it was always Nova's gutteral, but still successful attempt at "speaking."

You're cross-pollinating there, Marc. Nova's attempt at speech is in the second film. In the original, her first step toward humanization is learning to "smile".*

A lot of the nitpicking with the original PoTA springs from people mixing and matching elements from all the films. As I note above, EWW asks when human's "forgot" how to talk. That is not a question that arises in the context of the first film.

Things start to fall apart the moment Taylor and Nova get back on that horse and continue their ride down the beach.

You know, I never thought I'd be reading an entire article dedicated to that one scene, but now I have. Thanks, Greg!
