Star Trek, 10 film DVD boxset - Excellent all round release,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Trek: Legends of the Final Frontier Collection [DVD] (DVD)
This is a great release of the ten Star Trek films. If you are looking here you're probably familiar with the films, so I will just discuss the release itself.
The films have all been remastered, cleaned up and presented in the best possible quality. Having owned a few of the previous editions I can say that the picture quality is excellent. Especially on the older Kirk and Co films the difference is really noticeable, and they look almost as though they were filmed last year. The sound has also been fully cleaned up, and is presented in 5.1 surround. Again, the effort is noticeable and the result superb.
The ten films are each in normal wide DVD boxes, all gathered into a large, stylish cardboard cube. My only gripe is that the box is too big to fit in my DVD shelf, it would have been easy to make it a bit smaller.
There are a wealth of extras with each film, and a further 2 discs of extras. In the main these are reasonably interesting and add to the set, but I suspect some of them will be of interest to the more serious Trekkie.
In summary, for the low price being asked when I bought this, it's an excellent set. The films are in the best possible condition, and it's really worth replacing the previous editions with these.

Does the set have the directors cut of Wrath of Khan and The Motion Picture(I)? I'm still gonna buy it but I'd rather get the Directors cut of those two films also if they aren't DC in the set.

It does not specifically mention Director's cut, and I don't know enough about the films to tell. If it helps:
Motion Picture = 126 minutes
Wrath of Khan = 108 minutes
Motion picture has 'as it was originally released in theatres' in the blurb on the box, so I suspect this is not the DC.
These comments are specific to the DVD release, not seen the Blu-Ray, so cannot say if is exactly the same.

Cheers, neither one isn't the Director's cut, with Khan it ain't really a big deal but I've read the DC version of Motion makes the film better then it is.

I thought they were a good buy. At the moment the set works out as £3 a film, which isn't bad at all. Did you mean box sets ofthe series? The remastering and general quality on the films here are the same as on the new OTS series box set releases, and they compliment each other well.
