From the Rumor Mill that mentioned the Paramount dates, The Digital Bits also said the Trek films from the current box set will be available separately when the new film and Next Generation set arrives.

I think I may wait and pick up some of those when they are available. I don't want all of the films in the current set. And, even though I don't care too much about cover art, I would rather have the theatrical cover artwork instead of what they used in the set. The white background with a crew member's huge face is kinda blah.

Hopefully Paramount is able to put the director's cuts of I & II on the individual releases.

Won't happen this quickly....the individual releases this fall will be the same discs as in the box set....
You won't see the "director's cut" releases until they re-release them a couple years from now....they still have to re-render all the new effects in ST:TMP into HD first....

Def. in for EFLA and 48 Hours, pass on the rest.

K-19? Varsity Blues? Really? WTF, Paramount? Where's Once Upon a Time in the West? Bastards..

Wow where's the love for Deep Impact? It was the thinking man's Armageddon of 1998.

Regarding OUATITW, I saw this recently on HDnet and it did not look that great. Maybe they're using the transfer which sourced the SCE DVD for the broadcast, but I would think this would need some work for it to shine on BD.

It wasn't that deep. Not enough to elevate it over the total absurd fun of Armageddon anyway.

Damn, those Paramount catalogue titles suck hard. Maybe The Firm if I can find it for under $10, but zero interest in the others.

Bah - at least it didn't curse us with one of the most insufferable power ballads ever.

Nope- just cursed us with the atrocity of Tea Leoni's acting and a fucking absurd teenage love story instead.

Hey I'll put the cast of Deep Impact against the cast of Armageddon any day.

Hell Duvall and Freeman are enough to make the whole cast of Armageddon look like amateurs.

BTW, I'm not trying to say Deep Impact is a sci-fi classic or even a great film. But using absurd to describe Deep Impact in defense of a movie like Armageddon....well that's a little absurd.

And PS, I would buy Armageddon on Blu. :)

If you don't want to wait you can import them RIGHT NOW from Amazon.co.uk...

I have all the films on DVD so I just imported the Khan standalone... I believe it was $20-$21 after dollar-to-pound conversion. Probably around what they'll be when they come over here. They're region-free as well. You can bet your bottom dollar that the Next Generation films will also be available separately when released so you can save yourself from the drudgery of Insurrection and Nemesis. heh.

Never will I ever own Star Trek V again on any medium. :)

Either way I'll be picking up Deep Impact and eventually Armeggedon on BD when they are out.

As for Armageddon and Deep Impact, both movies are dumb. One of them knows it and is hella fun and the other has Frodo.

That's not how it felt in 1998, but to each their own.

Wallace and Gromit: The Complete Collection is up for pre-order at Amazon (no street date though) and I wonder if its really "complete" - with the most recent short: 'A Matter of Loaf and Death'

Oh, my "absurd" comment wasn't in defense of Armageddon at all. Frankly, I don't care for either movie very much. I will definitely agree with you that, on the whole, Deep Impact had a superior cast, talent wise.

I haven't seen Armageddon in a long time so I'll probably enjoy it the next time I do see it. I sometimes feel like DI only has so many viewings left in it for me.
