I didn't need to know any of that to enjoy the movie, plenty of stuff in other movies has happened coincidentally or without explanation. Sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy it for what it is.

Re: Star Trek: Nov 17

Just watched the film with audio commentary last night. Both of these questions were addressed. As for when Nero knew Spock would exit the wormhole
Spoiler:
one of the audio commentary participants remarked that Nero spent the entire time he was in the Klingon prison calculating when Spock would arrive.


As for the coincidence of Spock and Kirk reuniting
Spoiler:
there originally was dialogue with Kirk disbelieving the coincidences and Spock explaining that it was probably the timeline attempting to correct itself. Quantum mechanics, fate, etc.


These points were originally part of the film, but had to be dropped for pacing's sake. I'm pretty impressed with the filmmaker's attention to such details and cannot believe that the screenwriters also wrote the Transformers movies. I can only blame Michael Bay for fucking those up.

Re: Star Trek: Nov 17

Just picked a bluray player tonight with Star Trek

Anyone else have a misprinted 3rd disc? My Disc 3, says Disc 1 "Feature Film and Special Features" and instead of saying Bluray it says DVD. At first I got excited thinking that Star Trek was a Bluray Combo Pack like the Disney film, but it turns out my Disc 3 was labeled wrong. I'm just wondering if anyone knows how common this is.

So instead of the Digital Copy you got Disc 1 from the DVD set?

Re: Star Trek: Nov 17

I know I'm a lil' late to the party here, but having no prior exposure to anything Star Trek related till tonight, I must admit that the new movie was cussing awesome.

Having liked this movie so much, would you recommend i watch the older Star Trek films? If so, which ones? how about the TV series?

Saw it in theater and loved it, watched it on Blu today and loved it even more. Great movie, however I will say that the overuse of lens flares bugged the shit out of me. Other then that I loved it!

My wife had never really seen Star Trek before the new movie (which she loved), so I showed her The Wrath of Khan, and she thought it was slow and boring (go figure)...but that's the one I'd start with if you just want a sample of the original crew to see if you'd like it.

Re: Star Trek: Nov 17

I haven't seen any in-store without the slipcover yet. It's actually shrink-wrapped to the case, so if it's supposed to still include it, it will still include it.

Ditto. Shrink-wrapped to the case. And as I'd guess it'd have to cuz the case doesn't say Star Trek it just has Kirk on the front and Spock on the Back.

Re: Star Trek: Nov 17

what's up with the audio?? The dynamic range seems abbreviated, the IMAX mix was incredible, on bluray - the lossless Dolby TrueHD tracks sound lacklustre.

There's nothing wrong or "lackluster" with the Blu-ray soundtrack. You just don't have a subwoofer at home the size of those they use in the IMAX theaters.

YMMV, but there are reports that some Walmarts have the 3-disc BD for $5.
