    It's fair to say that I'm not one of his biggest fans.

    The slew of positive reviews does make me wonder whether this one might turn out OK. It's always dangerous to read too much into these early ones, but I've hardly seen a bad word about it yet.

    How's this for publicity - at a screening of one of the old Trek movies in America, the projector broke down and the fans started booing. Then Leonard Nimoy walked onto the stage and explained the projector wasn't broken but instead they wanted to show them the new film.


    I'd love it if they still booed and demanded the old film. biggrin


    That's what I would have done. It was Star Trek II, after all. How wonderful it would be to see that on the big screen!

    In fact, I can only imagine how deliriously happy I would be if I went to see the new Star Trek film but they showed Star Trek II instead. wink


    I agree. That or Star Trek VI are films I'd much rather see on the big screen than this new one.

    II and VI are easily the most "cinematic" of the films. (And the first one, but that has its problems.) The ones after VI are no better than the best of the Next Generation tv shows, and quite a lot worse than Deep Space Nine at its best.

    Man, I thought First Contact was one of the best three of the bunch (and better than any episode of the series that I can remember). I would put it up there with II and VI.

    I walked in with an intermediate amount of doubt... and was completely inspired by the time I walked out.

    Quinto was not the usual angry old Spock, but I consider that a good thing. Nimoy's cameo was charming. No other spoilers here.

    My favorite part of the soundtrack was the melancholy oriental erhu solos during Vulcan and Spock-centric scenes. Very stirring. Not sure if that has been done before in the Star Trek franchise- someone let me know.

    Winona Ryder as Spock's mom? ha.

    Go see the movie. Worth paying the theater fee. I promise.

    The movie is Outstanding, I encourage everyone to see it, and of course Giacchino's music is too.
    Goldsmith Rules!!

    Not great but an improvement on the CD cover.

    Looks like they're trying their utmost not to pay extra royalties to the actors. I mean, we all know the name is Trek... Star Trek.

    Why isn't it this or second to it the shower curtain and sprinkler? It has floating heads, but at least it looks professional.

    So, who else got Star Trek on DVD/Blu-Ray? biggrin

    Me! Blu ray is fantastic! The sound mix is unbelievable. Dare I say it but the music actually has a better mix than on CD.

    One of the few movies that manages to live up to the huge cinema feel even when watched at home. Love it.
  2. Still haven't gotten around to getting it on blu, but I will. And Anthony if what you're saying about the sound mix is also what I've been reading about it, then this sound mix should effectively move my residence by a few inches or so. The more the better!!!!

    For me the goddamndest kickass and awesome soundmix I've heard in all my home cinema years until now is the one for Watchmen on blu-ray. Did I mention it's goddamnest kickass and awesome? Well it most certainly is! Dolby TrueHD perfection.

    Transformers and Die Hard 4.0 where at the top of my list but Star Trek arguably makes them topple downward.

  3. No, but they don't hate me either.

    In fact they've never commented on it. Which makes me happy. cool

    I got the Blu Ray last week and watched the movie last saturday night and yes, the house shook when Nero was making his apparition. Amazing sound and there is a a little featurette on the making of the music with Giacchino. Fun.

    If anyone has the 2 disc DVD can they rip that extra please? I'm stuck when it comes to blu ray! There's a really pants version of it on youtube already but nothing good.
  4. Now, the Nemesis score has arrived and concludes the journey that started - if I remember correctly - with Wrath of Khan. Enthusiasm has cooled down a bit, I guess because Insurrection and Nemesis where not among Goldsmith's most memorable efforts.
    Still, I have purchased them all. (TV box sets not counting.) Who else has? Was it worth it? What was the most important release for you? What cue was your top priority? What score do you like to listen to in its entirety? ...
    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    You're still missing one. Star Trek Into Darkness Deluxe Edition.

  5. True. I was thinking only of the "original unverse" scores. A deluxe edition of the above score would be a treat. More so as I missed out on the deluxe edition of Giacchino's original score for the franchise. I don't seem to be able to find that one for a reasonable price. (120 €? I think not.)

    Star Trek Into Darkness is certainly deserving of an expanded release, with around eighty minutes of unreleased music including two concert suites. The thematic material for Admiral Marcus is barely present on the OST.
