Re: Star Trek 2009

They did a special screening with Star Trek with only women; they offered them to watch the film, and if they didn't like it and wanted to leave before the end, they offered them $50 (or $100, can't remember for sure), for leaving earlier. Well, they all stay till the end, and they enjoyed it very much so.

* It is mentioned I believe in the commentary, near the end, as well a sequel that is in progress.

Re: Star Trek 2009

Wow! Excellent movie...

I want to know when will the new series start... it would have to be a huge hit.

We also need a Media Review on this one too.

Re: Star Trek 2009

I've watched it twice so far since I bought the Bluray and it looks best up on the 106" screen with the sound cranked up!

I have to say after watching the special features I've softened my hardcore stance on some of the earlier things I didn't like or agree with. Nimoy fully signed off and approved of the story line and Abrahms said if Nimoy wouldn't have liked it and said no to doing the film that they would have been sunk. Also I saw the rest of the original cast that is still alive all meeting with their new counterparts, so in that respect it looks like everyone was on board for the reboot and how Abrahms handled it.

I still don't like the very low tech looking engineering levels. As cool and modern as the Budwiser factory may be, it doesn't look like anything that could produce warp speed! I say to Abrahms, come on! If they can make a cool looking engineering for STNG on a TV budget then you can do something grand with the budget you had!

Overall though I still like it very much and the Bluray doesn't disappoint at all. Video is a 5 out of 5, sound is 5 out of 5, and special features are fun and informative and I give them a 5 out of 5 as well. The weak link is the stupid digital copy that is included. Maybe this one has good PQ, I don't know though. I stopped checking out the digital copies included with BDs a long time ago.

This is definitely worth anyone addition to their DVD/BD collection whether they are a big time Trek fan or not.

I originally did this one over in the Media Review thread but it was moved here. The edit to make this a BD/DVD review would have been extremely simple
The reason I did it over there was because those reviews get featured on the main page and at the time I thought we were reviewing both DVD/BD releases as well as doing movie reviews of what's playing at the box office- Again because it was a main page feature.

Someone can do another media review though, no harm no foul. If you want I can do a quick update like I originally planned and move this back to the media review thread.

I agree, watch this one on a huge screen and crank it up for a full immersion of the senses.

I agree again, and I'd give this movie the same scores that you did.

I never was a Star Trek fan, until now!

* I'll probably rewatch it for the third time tonight.

The story line was very lacking, but the acting was excellent. I saw this as a relaunch movie trying not to be a fantastic film.

Yeah... you can just edit the original post and make this the media review and move it back. You can mention that you saw it at the movie theater and BD.
