So, is there a Blue ray version of this movie that gives you the most bang for your buck? I really would like to boycott this decision, but I doubt it's seriously going to matter. I'm guessing that the "whole" blue ray will not be available for at least a year or two.
Target 3D Exclusive is the one to get, IMHO. It has the additional 30 minutes of features, and the BestBuy CinemaNow will give you digital access to the other 30 minutes.

From there, register your digital copy through iTunes for the interactive commentary.

Then, feature-wise, you'll have everything produced, and the most features in physical form.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray Problem

I have pre-ordered mine through Amazon. I am not really that big into features. I do like listening to the commentaries every now and then but after I watch the features I may not view them again for years. I will get the Blu-Ray for good picture quality and that is what will make me the most happy.

We cover the iTunes commentary at TrekCore: http://trekcore.com/blog/2013/09/int...ed-commentary/
Is there word on if this is a limited release or will it be available for the foreseeable future?
Don't know. The digital download code has like a one-or-two year expiration date, but I don't know if that means the commentary file won't be available after that date or not.
Ok cool. Thanks for the info.

To be fair, like most, ill listen to the commentary once maybe twice, but still, least ill get to listen without paying for it.

How is that new Trek working out for you Abrams fans now? The classic Trek fans were treated well, new Trek fans are getting hosed.
Oh, you mean like when Paramount was releasing the Trek movies on DVD containing only the movie (not even the trailers on the disc) and charging more than a comparable movie with bonus features (sometimes 2 discs), only to have them release "Director's Editions" and "Special Collector's Editions" later on to milk more money out of the fans?

And I'm not just an Abrams fan, junior. I'm a Star Trek fan.
Exactly. You beat me to the punch. I am not happy with how this marketing fiasco turned out and as a result cancelled my order with Amazon. That being said, I still fully intend on buying the movie because I enjoyed the ride. I just can't say, at this point, whose copy I'll get - or when I'll get it. I still believe retailer incentives should be limited to tangible items packaged in with the discs - not the 'special feature' videos themselves.
I totally agree. Alter packaging and whatever gift they give. But altering the actual features is just an insult to the consumer, regardless of the fact if they be a Trek fan or not.

I preordered the crashing Ent steel from play.com before the whole thing blew up. I like the film, far from perfect, i had a few gripes with it like everyone, but i liked the look of the steel. Yeah in an ideal world, a disc packed with features would have been awesome, but...

Oddly, Den Of Geek ran pretty much the exact same comments on the whole feature scattering fiasco, its a good read.

Has anyone bought the version on blu ray from the sainsburys in the UK.??? I've got the villian set from play.com but I've heard that sainsburys blu ray version has a bonus DVD disk with extras on ??
Yes, the Sainsbury's set has the extra disc. It's the same as the Target extras covered in the TrekCore review.
Yeah i went into the sainsburys near me, low and behold it had what was missing. Lol. May consider, and this is going back on my word so to speak, in a few months when its reduced and ditch the pointless digi copy and put the other one in its place within the steelbook. Done.

It is possible to be a fan of both. Or, indeed, all Trek.

You must have forgotten the wailing and gnashing of teeth when TOS was being released on DVD with newly-added CGI, and everyone had to "double dip" if they wanted TOS with a choice of original SPFX or CGI. Or when Best Buy, in the USA, had exclusive bonus features included in their TNG and DS9 boxed sets of DVDs. Or when international fans got classy plastic canisters and the US only got flimsy cardboard holders that quickly fell apart?

If you don't purchase the Blu-Ray, there's a charge for the iTunes version; otherwise, it's free.

There's always the option to not buy it at all even if TrekCore doesn't mention that.

Yes, the correct answer for the person asking "Which version should I buy" must be "don't buy it".

Heh, that would be the wrong answer because it ignores their question. Always answer the asked question first. Then offer alternatives.

Your sarcastic one-or-the-other retort is specious and I think you know it.

JWPlatt, I really think it's time you backed off. Aatrek and TrekCore's purpose in this instance is to report on the features offered by the various versions of the Blu-Ray sets, and as far as I know they've done just that.

You stated your opinion early on about taking a more active role in expressing displeasure about the extras offered, and that's fine, but from that point on it's up to the individual to choose whether or not to pursue such a course, is it not? The "no buy" option is always implicit in any list of purchase options; your continued insistence, however, that Aatrek and TrekCore are somehow remiss in not more prominently highlighting or recommending that option is taking things a bit far, as it's really not their job. You've more than made your position clear, and you're in real danger of becoming obnoxious if you continue to harangue Aatrek about it.

Stop now, please.

I paid a hundred-bucks a set when the various series came out on DVD and then am paying for them again as they come out on Blu-ray (I also owned various VHS versions). I'm not sweating spending twenty bucks now then twenty-five bucks in six months to a year.
