    Pre-Order Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection (4k UHD Combo) Available for Preorder

    BTW, my first -- and last sci-fi convention was at Creation Con in 82 and the late actor who played Kirk's son was a featured speaker. He was great and the first thing he said was, "Yes, that was Ricardo Montalban's real chest." He talked a lot about the cut scenes. THIS. And the key thing is...

    Pre-Order Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection (4k UHD Combo) Available for Preorder

    I hated the JJ Abrams reboots as they're made by somebody who has no feel for the show so yeah they were popular spectacles that few will want to revisit much in the future and also didn't create strong enough identities to build on. Where do you go with Scotty after hanging him off every...

    And few note Kirk's reaction at the end. He turns to Scotty and says, "Thank you." Like a dance.

    Pre-Order Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection (4k UHD Combo) Available for Preorder

    Funny. I was 12 and recall the entire evening perfectly. So a post 1991 memory is hardly the best movie guide. Besides, I don't trust a Dalek to school anybody on ST:TMP. Have you seen DR. WHO AND THE DALEKS?

    Pre-Order Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection (4k UHD Combo) Available for Preorder

    The oddest critique of ST:TMP might be "it's just blatant fan service" -- uh, who was the intended audience for a movie based on a cult series kept alive by fan service and a continuing film/TV series literally created because of fan service? I've stated over and over I found the TV show a bore...

    I mean, why even release this since obviously everybody thinks it's so bad and boring! I'll check back in a few months with the post-release results.

    Pre-Order Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection (4k UHD Combo) Available for Preorder

    I still think about watching ST:TMP as a geek/audience savvy 12 year old and even thinking at the time that the full theater was mostly bored including my crush/date until ALIEN. But it was an era where audiences were not 24/7 flooded with MTV cutting, state of the art fx and franchise building...

    I'm just awaiting the scores of "WHY ST:TMP IS BETTER THAN YOU REMEMBER" and "TIME TO SHOW ST:TMP THE LOVE" articles after the 4k release. Trust me, they're coming.

    Pre-Order Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection (4k UHD Combo) Available for Preorder

    I don't see how an intended scene is "questionable filmmaking" because you perceive it be slow. The film is indeed a long trek but that scene is a highlight and I doubt any real ST fan yawns in that scene.

    Pre-Order Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection (4k UHD Combo) Available for Preorder

    People really seem to willfully miswatch this scene. It's a literal choreographed love dance to the fans for their show being released from drydock after their years and effort, which worked great on the screen to me as a 12 year-old non-fan. For me, ST:TMP of course lacks the warmth of the...

    Pre-Order Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection (4k UHD Combo) Available for Preorder

    I agree. Wise added stuff that should have been left in but cut down on too much that changed the stately tone. You can't really re-edit that out of the film. I know Shatner's "Oh my god" line was said to induce laughter at the preview and cut but it never bothered me and nobody laughed at my...

    Pre-Order Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection (4k UHD Combo) Available for Preorder

    I will ignore people complaining about a release few thought would happen or that we would get both versions of ST:TMP in glorious 4K etc. This has always been my second favorite of the series, obvious flaws and all but no worse than some in the others. The epic Goldsmith score and Enterprise...
