rebranded the Concordance.
Will that make the eventual 13 film box set the Star Trek Encyclopedia?
Given your very cool screen name, I figure you'd hold out for "The Compleat Trek".

Re: Star Trek: The Compendium

I'm very glad that they're doing this. I agree that the timing is unusual, however, I believe that an all 12 will be released together for the 50th in 2016.

Re: Star Trek: The Compendium

I know it's unrealistic, but I do wish the studios would release blu-rays with the original theatrical IMAX aspect ratio rather than crop it to 1.78. I understand why they crop them, there would be a lot of complaining over the shifting aspect ratios between 2.35 and 1.44, but that's no more jarring than 2.35 and 1.78, at least for me.

It's coming out Sept. 9---so I think the timing is no more than a day off.

I'll be getting this day 1.

I wish they would open up the non-IMAX scenes on top and bottom so that the whole movie is 16:9 fullscreen.

Same problem that's been discussed with the TNG sets not being opened up to 16:9 widescreen; if it wasn't shot that way (which it wasn't, in this case), you run the risk of seeing things that shouldn't be there or just generally spoiling the compositional intent of the scene.

Sometimes I want to be able to see the lighting rigs and the gaffer's foot in my TV shows. Nay, I don't just want it, I demand it.

I see ... I thought they had shot the movie in a way that allowed the possibility of opening up the top and bottom part. Some versions of TUC are almost full 16:9, and I think those versions are far superior. A matter of taste, of course ...

That was done for home video for some reason. The Blu-ray release is actually the original aspect ratio.

I could be wrong, they might have; but the reason the IMAX sections are definitely different is because IMAX film is shaped differently; if JJ shot the non-IMAX portions in regular ol' 35mm, the resolution is what it is.

I know that the BD is the OAR, but I thought the expanded picture on the DVD looks much better. In fact, the BD looks cropped (which is actually is) ... at least when you are used to the DVD version.

Actually it would be the sides of the picture that would be cropped in a 16:9 version. More picture information exists in the Blu-ray.

I suppose some double-dips are worth the expense.

No. In case of the TUC DVDs nothing has been cropped. There is actually more picture on the top and on the bottom, which makes the BD feel kind of cropped, although the BD represents the original theatrical cut and aspect ratio.
