This Monday, Amazon has an interesting Blu-ray related Deal of the Day: up to midnight PST, you can order Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection for only $54.99 (61% off MSRP, or just over $9 per movie). Additionally, customers who purchase that collection will receive $10 off the Blu-ray of Star Trek, for a final price of $9.99 for the 2009 Trek reboot.
It's a great set, don't let the nitpickers keep you from picking it up.
It's true that the directors cuts are not included, as they were produced in SD video. Hopefully some day they will go back and redo them in HD, but since absolutely no indication has been made of that, it will be years before we hold it in our hands.
The video looks great on them all. These are movies that are up to 30+ years old, and I think they look pretty snazzy. I actually watch them to enjoy some of my favorite films, not freeze frame and pick over every inch of the screen. When I watch them, I think they look fabulous - and certainly better than they have ever looked before for home viewing.
I paid $65 for this set last summer, don't regret it at ll. Great box, at this price about $9 a movie, if you are a Trek fan you've probably already picked it up. If you haven't, I'd easily recommend it to anyone who is a fan.
Good deal yes, but as most of us prob. already have 2009's STAR TREK, it's kind of annoying at the same time regarding that film. Didn't know about the Director's Cuts; now I don't know What to do... :-(
@Acerdude - The directors cuts would require a lot of work to bring to Blu, as they were done in SD. It's possible, and probable, that some day they will. However, since we haven't even begun to hear anything about it it's years away.
I already got my Star Trek Original Motion Picture Collection (albeit used) about a week ago for half the cost thanks to Hastings Black Friday deals online sale (every Friday and Saturday in November) all throughout the month of November. I got mine for around $32.40. Too good to pass up at the time!!
I love to watch The Motion Picture the most. I never thought i'd own the original theatrical version again, which was always my favourite. The Re mastered version that came out circa 2002 for dvd had a lot of little sonic nuances that were left out (especially with Jerry Goldsmiths wonderful soundtrack). I guess I'm a purist of a different sort..
