Re: DVD/Blu-Ray reviews

Star Trek XI (2009) Blu-ray reviews:
There's faint ringing in the 2.4:1 frame during dissolves, and mild noise in soft lighting and smoke, and some instances of notable grain.
I do wish that the blacks had a little more detail
fear not thumbtack, M'Sharak, and Clancy_s
The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix boasts room-shaking bass, and a particularly powerful kick whenever a starship jumps to warp speed.
The deleted scenes....all of the above Disc Two content is in Dolby Digital 5.1.
http://www.bigpicturebigsound.com/St...-Blu-ray.shtml



Disc 1 uses 36.8GB for the movie out of 38.7GB total.
AUDIO:
The amount of rear channel usage and LFE presence is excellent here.
It should come as no surprise that this is definite “demo material” in terms of audio presentation.

Overall the bonus materials are pretty darn impressive considering they include OVER 3 HOURS of Hi-Def supplemental material alone.
http://www.highdefdiscnews.com/?p=29870



VIDEO:
there are unfortunately some nitpicks resulting from the transfers such as blacks dropping detail in the fields of Iowa at dawn and other scattered backdrops.
AUDIO:
Trumping LFE are surrounds that run a marathon of activity from start to finish whether it be phasers popping out from all directions, control console bleeps and blips, space garbage clanging off hulls or the score and subtle ambient noise from the tight confines of a tin can in space.
DELETED Scenes:
The dark and wretched Klingon prison is especially noteworthy as we may see something similar in the sequel.
Special Feature: Props and Costumes (9:22)
...is especially intriguing as it delves into the deleted unique Klingon prison guard attire.

I've kinda been waffling on this, but it looks like I might have to break down and get a 5.1 rig for my computer.

review

AUDIO 5.1 mix:
there's just a rich tapestry of background sounds layered into the mix that draw you right into the film's fictional environments. A perfect example is the firefight that erupts when Kirk and Spock beam over to the Narada - the ping and sizzle of phaser bolts zip all around you.
The Digital Bits did their Blu-ray review.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

Paramount Europe finally got it right for a change. Star Trek XI was released on Blu-Ray last week. I've seen it a couple of times now and I can tell you the AV quality is stunning and the extras superb.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

The only video problem I had is with the final scene between Spcok and Spock prime. I remember it being soft, almost out of focus when I watched it in the cinema. Back then, I thought it was a problem with the projection or the print. But on the BD, that scene, especially the close-ups of Leonard Nimoy remain extremely soft. But this is not a fault in the transfer. Also, the sound has been remixed for home cinema sets and isn't as aggressive as the soundtrack you heard in the cinema. But it's always clear and accurate.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

Those hanging on to standard dvd format will NOT be pleased w/ the lack-luster/bare bones featurettes incld over the ridiculously glutt-fest the Bluray format is offering.
The 3 disc Bluray is listed as 22.99 on Amazon/others...but some site are touting a 33.00+ price...even a site which ONCE was called DEEP DISCOUNT..dvd dot com...is far above on pricing then many online and local retailers.
But now, retailers re playing hardball with exclusives!
Best Buy Canada has the Target USA Enterprise model that houses the discs inside saucer sect.
FYI/SunCoast/Coconuts has entry to win signed Uhura poster, and standard dvd steelbook.
Amazon has 8.5" metal Enterprise sculpture.
Walmart USA has Bluray + standard dvd set.
Best Buy USA has 4 pin set.
Another retailer is offering Itune cards.
So a casual fan of film can rent or buy a 1 disc of just the film. Standard dvd fans can get 2 disc w/ some featurettes.
Bluray fans get 2 disc loaded w/ featuettes and a digital copy.

I have preorder w/ Amazon, but that means they will only ship release date, and I get days later. I'm tempted to score it first day @ Target, hoping to get gift set w/ Enteprise model that holds discs inside it. No prices yet have been released for this and no online preorder avail.!

Didn't even make the top-10 for DVD sales here last week, which is a shame, because it got quite strong advertising and distribution. There were two versions of Wolverine in there, though.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

One week and essentially one day to go until the US release, it's almost here; I wonder how the DVD/blu-ray sales will do here? I hope the sales are crazy, it feels really good to see Star Trek so successful.

Of course after I own the blu-ray copy I will have to wait almost two years before the next Trek film, C'est la vie !
