Re: Season 3 Theatrical Event Date Revealed

The thing I don't like about this edit is we lose Ron Jones's score, which helped make this a great cliffhanger. I guess it was inevitable that it had to happen this way, but I wonder if they had tried to keep it in.

Still looking forward to tonight and seeing the bonus content and the Season 4 trailer, as well as BOBW of course. Might end up coming home and watching Family afterwards.

Re: Season 3 Theatrical Event Date Revealed

Yeah that score was great, but technically it's no longer a "cliffhanger" anymore so I think it makes sense not to have it.

Although that being said, for all future viewings I'm definitely going to stick with the original version. Because ultimately I just think these work better as separate episodes than as one movie.

Got my tickets, and looking forward to it! Going to wear my Niners baseball cap from "Take Me Out to the Holosuite" and see if anyone recognizes it

It doesn't start for nearly four hours here in Tucson. Got my ticket though and I'm as excited as Sto-vo-kor to be going!

Re: Season 3 Theatrical Event Date Revealed

Tonight is going to be a full on Trek night. I already have my ticket for BOBW, and I'm going to get my ticket (Already pre-ordered) for Star Trek Into Darkness. I'm also leaving soon for dinner and then the movie.

Re: Season 3 Theatrical Event Date Revealed

Just got back from valley view cinemark. House was packed! Also had a rep from fathom there taking pictures. BOBW looked great! The 2 seconds from SD was not too bad, imo.

Line of the day was from Guinan: Did you f*ck the program? -- just about died at that one!

Re: Season 3 Theatrical Event Date Revealed

I was surprised, frankly, because the whole "six seconds" thing and the shot of Picard/Locutus waiting are now gone. I always thought it was believable that the beam needed an extra few seconds to charge.. it's just another effective dramatic beat. I guess it worked fine for the purpose of an edit. I had a decent time. I enjoyed the gag reel,.
I really didn't like showing the documentary before the feature, as it kind of spoils it if I had brought in a friend who had never seen Best of Both Worlds, which I was going to do.

Re: Season 3 Theatrical Event Date Revealed

The event this time was much larger than last time around (I'd say at least double the seasons 1 and 2 attendances), but we encountered a few technical difficulties. The center channel kept going out, which meant the dialog was muted while the music and sound effects kept going. We also had some digital noise from the satellite feed right as Admiral Henson hailed the Enterprise from the middle of Wolf 359 (which was actually kinda funny how it synced together with the on-screen static from the battle damage).

There were lots of groans and a few people left early, but ultimately it affected probably less than 10 minutes of the 2 hour show and we were greeted by staff at the end who gave us free passes.

We got a bigger reaction from Worf's "I never played with Bo--" line. The crowd was rolling for several seconds (perhaps a minute or two).

Re: Season 3 Theatrical Event Date Revealed

The theater I went to was *packed* - far better than the Season 2 event, which was maybe 20 people.

BOBW looked fantastic, especially the new effects. But did anyone feel like the scenes in the ready room and sickbay in Part 2 looked odd? Maybe it was just a lighting choice at the time, but they looked much less sharp and colorful than the rest of the episode.

That one had our crowd rolling, but Castillo's "I think maybe I'd like it better if you called me Dick" absolutely brought the house down.

Re: Season 3 Theatrical Event Date Revealed

I just got back from the event here in San Antonio, the theatre was packed. Yes the scene when Riker orders "Fire" is edited so it cuts right to the dish firing. They sweetened the explosion at the end of the episode. Also the phasers can really now be seen to change colors when they rotate their frequencies. The bloopers are hysterical. Good reactions from the crowd.
