Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

My two kids chipped in last xmas and gave us a Blu-ray player. With Blu-ray movies the picture is incredible. But, i am finding my old TOS, TNG, Voy and DS9 dvds look funny. The picture is somewhat stretched. We think it could be a setting we have to adjust. Onlyl the husband and i are pretty much idiots when it comes to this sort of thing, so we've been suffering through with the stretched pictures.

It is a setting, either in your player or in your TV. In the setup menu of your player, make sure you select "Normal" rather than "Full" (the most common names for the settings). That should solve your problem. If not, send me a pm with the TV and player model numbers and makes and I'll see what I can find out for you (A/V is something of a hobby of mine--I belong to one Trek board, but 8 A/V boards).

I mean I liked ST:XI , is the DVD Realy worth 30 bucks.
For Trek XI? You damn right it is!
We just mounted our DLP projector (and our 8 foot screen) for the coming NFL season (go chargers). And we watched THE MOTION PICTURE on our Bluray and it was like going to the movies..I will pay for the Bluray version of XI because, for me, it makes that much of a difference...

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

Oh, yeah; you should see that Pine/Quinto interview. They describe the only time that J.J. got a little bit miffed. It was when all the crew were gathered, right as Spock returns and offers to go to the Narada. He was saying the "...my mother was human..." line.

J.J. gave them a time out during that scene. It was like 2 a.m., and they were all punchy, laughing. They couldn't stop laughing, and J.J. said: ok, I'm going away for a couple of minutes, and when I get back... Apparently, that worked, because the scene looks seamless.

I can't recall where I read it, but yeah, Simon was supposed to have improvised the line and it cracked Quinto up to the extent that it was a couple of takes more before he could get through the scene with a straight face. I'd really like to see that, if the footage exists.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

The November 17th date was tossed around about 6-8 weeks ago. It will be just in time for Black Friday and the Christmas shopping season. PM me for my Christmas mailing address.

This is a young cast, just as the cast of TOS was young once. They made for some great gag reels and I am sure this young cast will as well.
