Just wanted to grab everyone's attention with a low review - I received the BLU RAY edition of STTMP today, and it DOESN'T appear to be the much improved Director's Cut that was re-released a couple of years back!

Most of the reviews on this page are of the DVD edition which is indeed the new version, but they're NOT of the BLU RAY! Because I'm a total fan I'll gladly own both, but still I feel quite cheated.

I must say though that the BLU RAY does look and sound absolutely superb, even though it is the original cut of the film. Colour depth, contrast, and detail really are amazing for a film 30+ years old (it does highlight how creaky some the effects shots are looking though - which is one of the reasons why the whole thing was given a make-over and re-released as the Director's Edition).

I've scoured the extras and there doesn't seem to be any branching option available where either edition can be played - if anybody can correct me, please do and I'll happily withdraw this review!

Based on the above, this current ORIGINAL release BLU RAY rates **1/2 instead of the potential ***** it could have been!

Amazon's description of this blu-ray disk is misleading and incorrect: this is the theatrical release not the Director's Edition which it promises to be. It is the same version as has already been released in blu-ray box sets. The worng impression is increased by the reviews which have been associated with the release, which refer to the Director's Edition. Amazon should amend their description: hence the number of stars.

There are very few sci-fi films that deserve recognition, but there are four of them that are classic pieces of cinema; 2001, Alien, Bladerunner and Star Trek-The Motion Picture. Contrary to most peoples view of the Star Trek movies (which simply cash in on the brand), Star Trek-The Motion Picture is a film that stands independently of the series and its film sequals. It is a master-work sci-fi that will appeal to any and all sci-fi fans. The acting, the direction, the musical score and the story-line are nothing short of breathtaking. True, there are a couple of moments at the beginning when the special effects looked dated, but this fault occurs only at the start. For the rest of the film the sets look and feel real. The character interaction is superb and draws you into the Star Trek world. The scene were Kirk arrives at the new, refitted 'Enterprise' by shuttle and takes in the immensity and glory of the ship is one of the most moving scenes in cinema history. The musical score is excellent, adding to the atmosphere of the storyline in an emotional and spectacular manner. The story itself revolves around questions of human interaction, authority, friendship,the role of the genders in a vast universe, the gaining of wisdom (on the part of both man and machine), the role of modern technology,and what exactly is 'out there'. This is not a Star Trek movie. It is a sci-fi film. And one of the best. The Director's cut restores the film and its score to its original cinematic glory.

Well, I can admit to not being the biggest fan of this film, but I've seen it enough times to realise its charm, its sci-fi qualities, its epic feel and so on. But has the Motion-less Picture been improved with this extensive reworking? Well, at the moment its the only Trek film DVD I own...
Well, the DVD certainly offers value for money - three documentaries looking at Star Trek: Phase II's development into a film (I didn't know that Paramount changed their minds about whether to have a Trek series or film four times!! :)), plus two commentaries - one text by Mike Okuda, offering loads of trivia-tidbits, and another group one by Robert Wise (director), Douglas Trumball (special photographic effects director), John Dykstra (special photographic effects supervisor), Jerry Goldsmith (composer) and Stephen Collins (Commander Decker). Oh, and the film itself in its reworked glory. :)
Well, the cut of the film has changed the early pace - it runs a little faster now, despite the running time being a few minutes longer than originally! The shot of San Francisco when Kirk lands in his shuttle is amazing. We actually get to see what V'Ger looks like now (and where it may look to advanced and weird, it was actually suggested in the original storyboards in 1979.) New SFX also stop quiet scenes from becoming dull now - and the horrible SFX they had when V'Ger dissolves the Klingon vessels at the start has, thankfully, changed. :)
Well, I could go on forever, but what has happened is that Rob Wise has made subtle changes that have improved the film's quality here and there. Along with all the extra features mentioned, this is certainly worth the money and will have fans crying out for more Star Trek (insert film name) Director's Edition DVDs in the future.

The film that brought 'Gene Rodenberry's' futuristic and inspired TV seies to
the 'Big-Screen'
TO BOLDLY GO FORWARD :--
We start with an unidentified alien phenomenon on course for Earth destroying
everything. in it's path, a Klingon attack on it fails
'Admiral James Kirk' persuades Star-Ship command to return him to active service
to take command of the revampt ' S.S. Enterprise.
He gives orders to have the ship ready for launch within eight hours, way ahead of
schedule.
The 'Enterprise' is the only Star-Ship' within range of the oncoming intruder into
Federation Space.
The 'Enterprise' Captain has arranged for 'Bones' to re-join the crew ahead of it's
launch, his old team almost complete.
'Captain Kirk' realizes he needs the Commander 'Captain Decker' more than he at
first anticipated.
As interception time gets closer the old team is finally completed as 'Mr Spock' joins
the 'Enterprise' taking over the post of 'Science Officer'
As they approach the intruder 'Spock' realizes the phenomenon is attempting to make
contact with them, 'Spock's' response adverts further attack upon them.
The unidentified vessel appears to be capable of generating more power than 100
Star-Ships combined could.
The entity uses new crew member 'Ilia' to communicate with the 'Enterprise' command.
The encounter with the vessel is proving mysterious giving rise to concerns over Earths
very existence, what does V-GER want from Earth ?
The intruder seems to be looking for answers.....
