Re: how big an improvement is the star trek motion picture director cu
Honestly, this is probably one of those questions where you'll get different answers depending on who you ask. I think -generally- people think the DE is the better version of the film, but there's still plenty of disagreement on that.
I haven't seen it in quite awhile myself, but it's safe to say that for everything I liked about the DE there's probably something I didn't care for.
Put more crudely and probably unfairly...you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
