Star Trek Blu-rays

by Mike on 6/5/2012

I haven't watched them all yet but so far every movie has looked wonderful. I understand there is some cell shading issues sacrificing sharpness for a grain-free screen but I honestly can't notice any blemishes on my tv. I love Star Trek and, aside from the generic blu-ray menu for every movie which is too bad, everything is the usual blu-ray awesomeness. The visual is beautiful and the audio is righteous. Read More

ReviewSource The Washington Post
Review [The Undiscovered Country] "What are we doing here?" asks William Shatner, a k a Captain James T. Kirk, as the aging starship commander leads his veteran cronies into a meeting at Starfleet Headquarters...It's a good question. "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" marks a quarter-century of Trek culture. This includes endless reruns of the original TV series, worldwide Trekker conventions, cartoon versions, gadgets, accessories, a spinoff series ("Star Trek: The Next Generation") and, let's not forget, the five "Star Trek" movies before this one...As now-white-haired engineer Scotty might put it, the crew's getting a wee bit long in the tooth...Not to mention waxy in the skin and rickety in the bones. The fake-hairpiece count also seems to be rising. But none of this matters. The seven hoary principals, Spock et al., could be dead, stuffed and mounted. "Star Trek VI" barrels along on industrial special effects and a 25-year momentum of good-willed, witty, human-interest sci-fi episodes...Director/coscripter Nicholas Meyer, who helmed the popular second "Star Trek" movie ("The Wrath of Khan"), moves this vehicle efficiently. He employs some tremendous visuals. At one point, the gravity stabilizer goes off in the Klingon spaceship. Invaders come aboard and start firing laser-type weaponry. The Klingons' spilled blood floats in the air in eerily beautiful purplish globules; it's space-age Sam Peckinpah...A final word for "Star Trek" founder Gene Roddenberry, a cheerful, abundantly inspiring personality who beamed out of this life earlier this year: By getting people where they live -- i.e. television and the movie screen -- his contribution to the pop culture is practically statesmanlike. This movie, so many years after the whole thing began, still bears the entertainment and humanistic values he imposed on every silly little storyline.

Review [The Search for Spock] With a title like The Search for Spock, did anyone really expect that they wouldn't find the erstwhile first officer? So, with the resolution never in doubt (especially considering that Leonard Nimoy was directing), the real question to ask is: Is the search fun? The answer, for the most part, is "yes", at least once the story kicks into high gear. Star Trek III takes nearly forty minutes, much of which is filled with silly, mystical exposition about the current state of Spock's soul, before things start moving. The last twenty minutes are equally slow, but the stuff in between is quite enjoyable...The highlight of The Search for Spock is the ten-minute sequence where Kirk steals the Enterprise. Exciting, well-paced, and perfectly-scored, this gem stands out as one of the best segments in any of the Star Trek movies. Also noteworthy are a confrontation between the Enterprise and a Klingon bird-of-prey (although the "battle", such as it is, is anticlimactic, with the Enterprise's defense systems going on the fritz), the scene in which Kirk orders the ship's self-destruction, and a hand-to-hand struggle between the Admiral and the Klingon commander (Christopher Lloyd)...Like Star Trek II, Star Trek III is about sacrifice. In The Wrath of Khan, Spock gave his life for his shipmates. Here, Kirk loses just about everything except his life so that his friend can have a chance at a future. It's this sort of thing -- placing characters and themes above battles and special effects -- that has always distinguished Star Trek. While the absence of Spock leaves a vacuum in character interaction (there is none of the witty repartee that defines the Kirk/Spock/McCoy relationship), expectations about his return create a palpable sense of anticipation. So, while the sluggish beginning and ending mar this Star Trek outing somewhat, there's still enough here to please fans of the series, and, to a lesser extent, movie-goers in general.

Review [The Wrath of Khan] Because getting Star Trek fans to agree on any issue tends to be an elusive goal, it would take an exceptional project to unite the bunch. Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan came closest for several reasons. Ironically enough, a significant one is that even without the words "Star Trek," the film would still be a space adventure of the highest order. Almost destined to look good by comparison, Khan followed 1979's handsome, ponderous Star Trek: The Motion Picture, which spent a lifetime reintroducing each of the show's characters and another lifetime letting them drift through an endless nebula of special effects. Like Superman II, another superior sequel, Khan dispenses with the formalities and gets down to the business at hand...Director Nicholas Meyer came to the project with little knowledge of the series and little concern for avoiding such topics as the graying of the Enterprise crew: He made a central issue out of William Shatner's age, and brought mortality to center stage by killing off a major character. For all that, the film still stays planted in the Star Trek universe. It digs deep into the show's archives to find its titular villain, a genetically engineered superman played by Ricardo Montalban, last seen making a new start on an uninhabited planet after trying to take over the Enterprise. Now eager for revenge on Shatner after living for decades in the aftermath of an ecological disaster that killed most of his crew, Montalban finds the means to even the score after he commandeers a passing starship. What follows works both as a confrontation between two characters and as a showdown between two happily larger-than-life actors. Shatner and Montalban never share the same space, but their face-offs highlight the film, as they both wring every drop of drama out of their lines.

Review [The Motion Picture] After a moderately successful three-year run on television from 1966 to 1969, the original Star Trek series was cancelled. For the next ten years, series creator Gene Roddenberry tried to bring it back without much luck. Following a number of red lights and green lights, Star Trek finally made its return in 1979, only this time as Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The result is intriguing as far as the sci-fi genre goes, but not exactly something I'd consider to be "Star Trek"...I've seen only a limited number of episodes from the original series and remember only one in particular. Kirk was stuck alone on a foreign planet battling some hulking lizard-like alien. The beast took the good captain to the limits, roaring and tossing papier-mache boulders. As hokey as it might have looked, cheap props were a big part of Star Trek's personality. But with the big screen treatment comes a big-time budget. And with a big-time budget comes a bombardment of spectacular special effects. This presents a major shift in tone for the franchise. On the one hand, the film looks great, comparable to the likes of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Wars. Even by the standards of two decades later -- computer-generated graphics and all -- the old-fashioned small-scale models still hold up from a technical perspective. On the other hand, with the focus shifted to the visuals, it takes away some of the television series' original appeal and personality. Suddenly Star Trek becomes just another sci-fi movie...While the movie's visuals are beautiful and the story reasonably solid, other than Kirk's signature marathon speech pauses, Star Trek: The Motion Picture is not Trek as usual. And at least for those of us who've never been Trekkies, that might actually be a good thing.

Quotes
Danny Graydon, BBC Online [The Undiscovered Country] A fun, exciting--and dignified--sign-off for Captain Kirk and crew.
David Grove, PopMatters [The Motion Picture] ...a gorgeous visual spectacle...a science fiction epic, one to be reckoned into the annals of sci-fi franchises and extravaganzas.
Mark Bourne, DVD Journal [The Wrath of Khan] ...this multi-layered action picture works so well you don't need to be a "Trekkie" to enjoy it.
Rita Kempley, The Washington Post [The Voyage Home] A happy, heartfelt chapter that reunites the original cast with the original TV format, shying away from the cold and epic scale of the preceding movie adventures.
Scott Weinberg, Apollo Movie Guide [The Search for Spock] If Wrath of Khan is the 'action' entry and Voyage Home is the 'comedy' installment, then Search for Spock is the 'drama' -- and it's a damn good entry overall.
TV Guide [The Final Frontier] ...the kind of thoughtful, exciting adventure that made the Gene Roddenberry TV series so compelling.
