Quick question; I understand that the Blu-Ray version with have both the re-mastered and the original effects; will the "normal" Remastered boxsets be the same?
If you're referring to the remastered DVD sets, then the answer is no. They've already been released, and only include the new effects shots.

I'm wondering if, when watching the versions without the new effects, we also have the original opening theme music over the credits. Although the re-recorded music sounds pretty good, it's slightly different to my ears and just doesn't sound right. Also, they added too much reverb to Shatner's opening monologue, and that bugs me the most.

I would assume so, since the original mono audio is there.

I've read and heard from folks that the bluray PATTON is an utter abomination, with grain-smoothing that obliterated detail on sets big enough to discern facial specifics. Are you old enough to remember seeing it theatrically in dimension 150?
No, I'm not. All I can say it check it out for yourself. It looks amazing to me. Out of the handful of classic film blu-rays I've rented and seen, only 2001 looked better to me.

Here's part of the review at blu-ray.com which sums up my own feelings about it:
Patton debuts in high definition with an image quality that's simply stunning, far superior to any and all expectations I had for the transfer. The film's 1080p, 2:20:1 framed imagery looks like it was filmed yesterday. The movie screams to be witnessed on a large screen, and I felt my 65" television didn't do the scope of the movie justice. This Blu-ray disc is simply a revelation, and any and all fans of Patton are going to be ecstatic. The transfer is crisp, absolutely pristine, beautiful, and features exquisite detail, this Blu-ray edition far surpasing the quality of the two-disc DVD version of the film I own that came out in late 1999. It's not even close, really, the difference night and day, the DVD appearing soft, far less vibrant, and showcasing painfully less detail than is evident on this incredible Blu-ray disc. The Blu-ray is virtually free of any and all print blemishes, scratches, and pops that are clearly evident over the entirety of the DVD image, although a few stray hairs and nicks do creep up every now and then. Look at the image of a dead body with two scorpions walking on it just after the beginning credits are through rolling. Every single rock and grain of sand are seen individually, the detail so high that the viewer is put right in the middle of this war-ravaged area. I also noticed small nuances to the scene I had never seen before, the post-battle carnage a bit more gruesome than I remembered. The film's opening is glorious, the detail so fine on Patton's jacket and the medals thereon so vivid that you can almost reach through the screen and touch them. From first frame to last, the image is incredibly bright and clean, always sharp and radiant with excellent color reproduction and very little softness. Blacks are true and deep, and flesh tones rate as impeccably perfect. This film has barely aged a day in nearly 40 years (at least on this version), and while Patton doesn't look like [COLOR=#224488]I, Robot[/COLOR], this disc merits a top rating nevertheless, this 1970 film looking far superior to most discs on the market, 38 year old catalogue title or not.
I definitely recommend renting this. I would say this movie more than anything else sold me on blu-ray.

Sorry; I wasn't clear in my question. I meant: will the new lossless audio (7.1), when watching the original versions, have the original theme music and voiceover? None of the reviews that I've seen specify.

I guess we'll find out in a few days...

DVDTalk review

DVD Talk has a review up

http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/37039...ries-season-1/

7.1 DTS HD Master-Audio.
This mix trumps the 5.1 Dolby TrueHD mix offered on the HD-DVD release from 2007 by utilizing the rear surrounds to convincingly handle ambient noises.

Re: Star Trek season 1 on blu-ray: April 28

I LOVE CBMOUNT!

I'm still not paying to see Abramstrek, though. You'd need to send me back in time so I could fuck Nichols before I'd consider that.

I do notice that the old effects scenes seem a bit clearer. I wonder if they tried to clean them up in the same way they did for the live action? If so, that would allow for an excellent foundation for fan-edits and for modeling reference, since very-clear copies of the effects shots are spread throughout the series.

Needless to say, this is a great year for Trek. Maybe the assumed-success of the new film made them think twice about going the extra mile with this package?

Re: Star Trek season 1 on blu-ray: April 28

I must say I'm looking more forward to the blu-ray release than I am to the new movie, although I will go see the movie.

I think it's really cool that they have included the original effects, that really surprises me and makes me more interested actually.

This will be the definitive release. An easy to use case, single sided discs, both versions of the picture and sound... Finally.

For Canadians Futureshop has the set for $67.99 Can (about $56 US) right now. It shows as $79.99 but you get 15% off. I don't know if I should get it or wait until all three seasons are out and pick them up as set.

Re: Star Trek season 1 on blu-ray: April 28

I swore I'd never double dip on these, I've been very happy with the ones I got way back when they came in those hideous orange and green packages. However this looks really good, blu-ray both versions including the remastered which I never really saw, about a hundred bucks which isn't too terrible, I'll probably pick it up.

Re: Star Trek season 1 on blu-ray: April 28

Picked mine up from Best Buy this evening, $65 + tax. Quality is fantastic! Running via my PS3 on a 46" 1080p 120hz, the detail is just amazing. It's like watching it again for the first time. The 7.1 track is a little quiet, it could be because I only have a 2.0 setup... I have this problem with some movies, but cranking up the volume takes care of it.

On a similar note of Trek TV on Blu-ray Here is the post I made on Friday April 17 about the first announcement that Paramount UK will release ST:TNG TV series on Blu-ray (as standard definition NOT HIGH DEFINITION) on Sept. 14, 2009. Please discuss TNG only at that link and not hijack this thread.
I'm not trying to hijack anything, but I feel obligated to point out (for those who can't or won't read the original thread) that this was an APRIL FOOLS JOKE from treknews.de. TNG has not been announced in Blu-Ray at all. Linky

I'm glad someone else said something about this. It seems EXTREMELY quiet. I had to turn up my surround receiver a full 15 points higher than I do any other blu-ray I own. I've noticed that in general, I have to turn up DVDs higher than blu-ray to get the same level of volume out of them - but this is the first time I've had to turn up a blu-ray so far.

Re: Star Trek season 1 on blu-ray: April 28

Sound level seemed fine to me.

I definitely like the packaging. It's the first Trek DVD set (not counting movies) where I've ever kept the original packaging. The others I all threw away and put in those sleeves you get. I bloody well hate it when DVDs come in such elaborate packaging that you have to take out a box, remove a sleeve, take out another stupid box, etc. etc.
