Well I guess we have to agree to disagree here re: TOS movie blurays. TUC in particular is utterly totally abysmal quality to the power of 10 IMHO. It is a shocking release by Paramount (TOS movies) because they couldn't spend a small bit of money on rescanning it. You/we should not let them get away with it, but I guess they will based on these comments!
All I can say is - wow! Abysmal quality ^10!??? You obviously have an extremely high benchmark for HD technical presentation. Damn, I have some Blu-ray's considerably worse than TUC - the Vivendi release of John Woo's "The Killer" for instance. You'd probably choke on your cornflakes if you saw that!

I'm just a layman, but I didn't see anything wrong with TUC. I do agree, though, that my remastered TOS blu-rays look better.

While I plan to get TWOK at some point, I'm holding out for better content (i.e. extras) before dropping coin on the other blurays.

Just received by Target Combo pack yesterday.

Wow...

I watched all the "extras". All of them very nice, but I got the feeling there should have been more.

My friend Kay Reindl, who wrote that brilliant blog post all about why Star Trek Into Darkness is actually a fine film and rather unworthy of much of the criticism it has received, has posted another blog entry responding to the reaction her first post got. Highly entertaining and with even more good points to consider:

I think I'll pass, just based on the title.

The Ego of Entitlement
This excerpt is especially on point:

Fans are entitled to watch the show. They can like it or not. They can bitch about it if that's how they feel. They can praise it if that's how they feel (although mostly that's done in private so as to not infuriate the trolls). But they do NOT own it. They don't deserve to have input into the creative process. You want to be creative? THEN BE CREATIVE. Leave other people alone. Let the professionals do their thing. And if you don't like it, don't watch it.
(bolding mine)

This is applicable to all forms of creative endeavour. IF (and I do mean "if") the creators want to include "fan feedback", that's fine. But it is certainly not something "owed to the fans".

Used the Ultra-violet code on iTunes and I got a digital copy of the film and the commentary. So, all-in-all, I'm happy with the purchase.
I, for some unknown reason, am having trouble downloading my digital copy.

If you don't mind, what browser are you using? I'm using Chrome.

Is there a time limit or deadline of some sort for downloading?

I don't think so, and at least not anytime soon. They'll be planning to sell these for years so it would suck if redemptions expired so soon.

I think the authorization code to download the digital copy for the 2009 movie was good for up to a year after release, so you should have some time.
