Re: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier enhanced effects reel

I really like the effort here. It would be nice to get a TFF Director's Cut.

Re: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier enhanced effects reel

I disagree. The only thing that would take some time and money would be the ending, and even that is still achievable without an enormous budget.

Yes, TFF needs more work than TMP needed, but its still possible to let Shatner do his cut of the film for a reasonable price.
Well, being one of the few who like the movie, I can definitely tell you it's not because of the FX lol. If they wanted to bother and do a director's cut, they basically have to throw out 80% of the effect shots and redo them in higher quality and with better staging, as several posters mentioned before. Is it doable! yes. Will Paramount bother? I don't know.

TMP was a better liked movie than TFF. TMP also only needed minor touch ups (fix up the pacing, cut out too much unnecessary stuff, the actual scenes where new FX footage was rendered was probably 2-3mins worth of the movie, TFF would probably need at least 20mins of new renderings)

I don't see how upgrading the movie's effects would be profitable.
Neither does Paramount, otherwise Shatner and a CGI team would have been thrown into a room together years ago.

It's a shame, I'd love to see Shatner's original ideas finally on film. I'd be much more inclined to buy a "definitive", Shatner approved TFF with CGI than see bits of TOS episodes interspersed with 2000's CGI.

Oh, and to the guys doing the fan restoration - great stuff

Without knowing how the DVD sales for TFF compare to the other films it's really not safe to say Paramount has nothing to lose. That's mere speculation.
Star Trek fans know the movie's troubled history, and they'd definitely pick up a director's edition of Star Trek V. Its a no-brainer.

Absolutely. And so would fans of alternate versions of films -- such as myself. I think I have every director's cut and special edition of most sci-fi and fantasy films.

I would add TFF in a heartbeat.
