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.
