Re: how big an improvement is the star trek motion picture director cu

Well, for one thing, all the footage cut from the original 1979 release can be viewed (as a group). There was a reason why the 1979 release was sometimes referred to as "The Motionless Picture." I am a Syd Mead fan, but even 2001 would have been a misshapen mess if the big state-of-the-art special effects scenes were in the middle of the picture, the way all the gosh-wow V'ger interiors are in TMP.
