I'm in the same boat...If we go HD-DVD to BD, what do we lose/gain in the quality or extras department (assuming I only care about the remastered versions in HD).

Re: Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection - 5/12/09

you are actually gaining a lot in terms of qaulity, the picture and sound is much better on the new blurays, early reviews are saying.

also you get the original versions of each episode as well to.

Re: Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection - 5/12/09

Amazon still works out a few dollars cheaper even with the 15 dollar discount bestbuy is offering if you order both.
original series now 64.99 at amazon and the movie series has been 79.99 at amazon for about a week now. would love to see tha movie series come down a few dollars more

Damn, I swore when I placed my order Amazon's movie set price was only a few dollars less than Best Buy's. (Is it possible they changed it for a little while yesterday?)

It's not a big deal though, since Best Buy started giving free 3-5 day shipping to Silver Reward Zone members. That along with earning reward points on the order makes me feel a little better. =)

Re: Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection - 5/12/09

yeah amazon matched the price that walmart.com had for the movie set last week. which was a very nice surprise since it had been hovering around 97 since it was first listed.

This was in my goldbox today for $75.99. Still not low enough for me to pull the trigger.

$80 is hard to swallow if you only want a few of the movies and not all 6. It will likely be this way for a while as Paramount takes its sweet time splitting up franchises (still no single Godfathers).

Re: Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection - 5/12/09

It's funny because in the old days of DVD, this price would be TOTALLY reasonable for six special-edition movies. We've become so adjusted to insanely low DVD prices that now any Blu-Ray that's over 15 bucks seems unreasonable. I include myself in this.

I spotted the Close Encounters set used for 25 bucks (retails around 50) and STILL felt it was too much to spend on just one movie.

There are kind of a lot of people out of work struggling to pay rent, feed themselves/kids and handle a car payment. Something called a recession

These are not SE's. Only the orig theatrical version in this set. The looming re-release/double dip of this set with the DC's could make the diff as well.

I meant SE in that they are loaded with extra features, commentaries, etc.

You both remind me why I'm waiting for Paramount to break out Godfather I and Godfather II from that set.

LOL! I was one of the minority that never saw any of these movies (I'm 37) during their heyday. I watched 1 and 2 on DVD when they first came out, and to this day I have still not seen 3.

Judging by the amount of people I now see begging for money on the side of the FWY every day I go to work I would say that's a big No. Perhaps where you live in Las Vegas...but in SoCal its a totally different story. Not going to argue about this as I really don't care that much about it because I actually think things through before I buy a vehicle that I can't afford unlike the people who come in on a daily basis now to voluntarily repo their vehicle because they can't make the payment.

And people want to spend that money on things they will enjoy, if they even have that money, so spending it on crappy Blu-ray releases isn't exactly a top priority.

Re: Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection - 5/12/09

When will the DVDTalk review of these be up? I'm reading the reviews on Amazon that say these are unrestored and bad-looking.

Paramount has not sent these out to reviewers yet. Could be because its a big 7 disc set...or could be because they don't want the emphasis on DNR/EE being paraded around so early. Star Trek S1 was sent out late as well but that appears to be a terrific set. For comparison I already have The Machinist, Without A Paddle, Waynes World 1/2 etc from Paramount. They tend to be a bit more random when it comes to big box sets. I'd say most reviewers will get these tomorrow or Friday so unless you have people working mad hours over the weekend you may not see reviews until mid next week

I sent them out to someone else who reviews for the site I do. Not a huge fan of those movies. More excited about Without A Paddle - solid comedy flick.

Cool, will be waiting for some eyes to see this stuff before buying.

Might just wait and wish for a big extended SE set in 2010-2011.
