Probably good odds on a 50th anniversary set timed with the next movie.

I sure hope so especially with 4K media around the corner, but I don't like Paramount's track record on transfers up to this point. Hell, if they would have just left the current ones alone without the contrast boosting, DNR, and EE they would probably be decent 2K scans.

(Planes, Trains, and Automobiles from them has a similar look. The biggest kick-in-the-balls was watching the deleted scene on that disc which has NONE of that processing and looked so much better than the actual movie!)

I would pay $200 for a set of all 6 theatrical films remastered and the Directors Cuts presented in the best quality that would be allowed. But the way Paramount prices things it would be $200 per movie.

It's sad to say, but I do find the Blu-ray's a significant improvement over the DVD's, but only because several of the movies on DVD as I recall were absolutely horrific, edge enhancement out the wazoo to the extreme. Paramount had a real bad run back in the day of DVD's titles being released with overly excessive edge enhancement.

Hmm. I take it back. You're right. It was still built around resolving the Fan's displeasure with the death of Spock, but you made valid points. Destroying the Enterprise was a big deal at that time (before we started running through the alphabet, thus making ship destructions totally pointless), and they did throw everything away to restore their little family.

I concede this one to you.

The only ST movie I really love is TMP (well I suppose specifically the only scene from a ST movie I endlessly obsess over is the Enterprise/Dry Dock scene in TMP: awesome practical effects, really wonderful score), I wish its presentation was on par with Khan's.

If they bring back the "director's cuts" they should really use seamless branching. Not everyone agrees those cuts are better.

They've done it on every other format so we should see directors cuts. I just hope they produce better transfers. I find the current ones hard to watch now.

Notice the July 1st re releases. How many times have they issued the same discs already? Too many.

Any word yet from Paramount Home Video on Directors Editions / Cuts of Star Trek The Motion Picture , The Wrath of Khan and The Undiscovered Country and new transfers of the other Star Trek Blu-Ray Disc? I like the current Blu-Ray Discs released in 2009 are not bad just too much over processing of DNR. Plus we need Directors Editions / Cuts of TMP , TWOK and TUC on Blu-Ray Disc as well. So why not let CBS Digital restore the 1st 10 Trek films on Blu-Ray Disc can that be done?

I wanted to watch the Director's Cut of ST:TMP, so I popped in my DVD and as soon as the Klingon ships come up on the screen and it's just an ugly mess. The space around the ships is not black but gray and you can see the matte lines around the ship making it look so dated I cant watch it and turn it off and then pop in my blu-ray of the theatrical version and man what a difference in PQ. The space around the ships was a nice deep black and no sign of the matte lines around the ships making it not look dated anymore. Man I love blu-ray. Anyway, the movie looked awesome and sounds great also. I hope some day soon they release the Director's Cut on blu-ray and maybe the longer TV cut.

Was using the amazon streaming app today and noticed that they have the "HD" version of Star Trek The Motion Picture director's cut. Went to the amazon website and looked it up. Appears to be mislabled on the app since the website only lists the SD version. Got all excited for nothing.

However, it appears that they do have the digital HD version of the director's cut of Wrath of Khan. Maybe there is hope yet for bd releases of the original crew director's cuts. I still highly doubt it.

Perhaps they also have the Director's Cut of II mislabeled.

I don't think so. Amazon specifically lists the SD and HD versions of Wrath of Khan separately. I don't care for the DC version of that movie anyway. Really just want the DC of STTMP in HD.
