The point is if we are wanting a directors cut then those effects were approved by Robert Wise and are the directors cut, re-render but keep the same if we want the approved edition, not that i would be against something better, just saying.
I loved the new effects and I'm sure when re rendering they will look great in HD as well. I also appreciated that the effects were made to look like 1979 effects and not 2001 effects.
I thought everything on this project was handled very well, except for rendering the film's new effects for theatrical release and HD.
2016 seems logical with the 50th Trek anniversary and most likely the next Star Trek film.
I thought it was funny that Paramount went to the trouble to create a 7.1 audio mix for TMP on blu ray.
This after spending $ in 2001 to finally finish the mix for TMP's Director's Cut using the elements that were created for the film in 1979, but not used due to time constraints on release of the film.
It is crazy that there was zero post production on TMP when it was released in 1979. That in itself is reason enough to justify the Director's Cut of TMP.
