Ready, or not, she launches in 12 hours...,
This review is from: Star Trek I: The Motion Picture [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
I was 11 when I saw The Motion Picture at the Cinema. From the moment the title music started I was hooked. The effects were amazing, and still stand up today. The story was grand in scope and thoughtfully tackled some fairly profound philosophical ideas. I guess a lot of people didn't like this film for that very reason - there's no obvious bad guy and you might have engage your brain beyond implulse power. Nonetheless, I'm all gown up now, and the inner 11 year old still loves it. Despite being a firm favorite film, I can't give this a higher rating. The bluray version is crystal clear, with cracking sound, but it's not the directors cut with enhanced visuals and tightened up editing. I hate to be cynical, but there was clearly a Marketing Deadline with unbeleivable revenue power less than 24hours away from this distributor....ready or not, she launches in 12 hours. Shame.

Heh Heh. Like it. And agreed, it makes no sense whatsoever to re-release the inferior cinema cut after all the good work that Robert Wise put into bringing the Motion Picture up to spec.

From what I've heard, the new cgi animation shots added to the Director's edition DVD need to be re-rendered to HD before they can go in a blu-ray. So might be a while before there's a Director's Edition blu-ray.
