Re: POLL: Will you buy Star Trek XI on DVD or Blu-Ray?

And it's WORTH it.

Think of it this way: Those who have Blu-Ray players will also have HDTVs. You think we want to feed those HDTVs with anything other than the very best quality sources? I'm not putting some crappy standard def DVD in there if I can avoid it.
I see your point there. I think you just may have convinced me to get the blu-ray version. I just realized that I have an HDTV, so I might as well put it to use...

(By the way, does anyone here own the new Blu-Ray release of the first 6 Trek movies? I was considering getting it but I've heard that they didn't even clean it up, it's just standard definition with a higher price tag and the words "Blu-ray" slapped on.)

And there are good deals to be found if you just wait a while. I've got over 100 Blu-rays and I would say that for half of them I've paid under $20. As low as $10 for some. Patience is a virtue.

That being said, I wil put virtue aside when STAR TREK hits video. The three disk Blu-ray will be mine. Might even take the day off work.

I don't understand why you guys buy blu-ray. I mean, I love blu-ray quality films, but hell, it's like 30 bucks for a movie.
In my case, I usually avoid getting the blu-ray but for certain special films (a star trek movie falling into this category) I'll get the blue-ray

Are you going to get it? Just curious which format people here are going to buy it on.

I'm going with 2 disc DVD.
I think I will break down and buy a Blu-Ray player when this one comes out.

^ i like the way you think!

3 disc BR for me as well.

I've also gotten a few Blu-ray movies at decent prices. Like Mike Farley said, you just have to be patient and look/wait for them.

Re: POLL: Will you buy Star Trek XI on DVD or Blu-Ray?

I've already pre-ordered the 3 disk Blu-ray set. I wish the set with 12" model of Enterprise were a lot less then it is. But since its limited to 5000 or so I guess some people will pay the $90 for it. I cant wait to see the movie in High Def glory. Also have to find R2D2 in the Fleet Debris Field. The ship itself and the new warping effects look really good not like the original exactly but it is an alternate universe. Nero changed the Federations War footing in a lot of ways more advanced weaponry, advances in warp technology that they more then likely didn't have in the Prime Universe. I especially loved all those lovely phasers shooting. The Prime Enterprise only had 2 phasers. I cant recall how many the new Enterprise has but it looked good shooting so many phasers at once and at least a couple of photon torpedoes.

Re: POLL: Will you buy Star Trek XI on DVD or Blu-Ray?

I voted for the 2-disc DVD, but I know my brother is getting me the movie for Christmas... so whatever he gets I will be happy! I have the 50" DLP ("It's the mirrors") and an up-convert DVD player (I find it does quite well for my purposes).

My average per BD purchase is about $16.50, and that's including lots of season boxed sets.

If you get the b.ray disc on the 1st week of release at bestbuy,target etc it's about 22 dollars-that's not bad.

Re: POLL: Will you buy Star Trek XI on DVD or Blu-Ray?

I will be buying the Blu Ray. I will defentaly buy the movie on the very day of the release, I will waste no time on buying it! I'm anxious as it is for it to come out. I seen the movie 8 times, and I still want to see it again. So, I'm trying to wait patently for it to come out on Blu Ray. Just less than two months away and it will be here!

Re: POLL: Will you buy Star Trek XI on DVD or Blu-Ray?

Nah.

It's not a priority for me.

It's not a movie I feel I may have missed anything the first time around.

I'm looking forward to the Spock baby scene. I really thought it should have been put in the movie.
