Star Trek: First Contact

DVD Content:

Commentary by Damon Lindelof and Anthony Pascale

Who’s this Anthony guy? ;)

ScottDS
July 20, 2009 8:23 am

Sounds great, especially the Frakes/Sirtis commentary on Insurrection.

Will Generations actually include the trailers this time??

July 20, 2009 8:26 am

Very cool that you did the commentary on FC Anthony!! Not so cool that Paramount continues to re-release things that already exist. No need to release the original films on standard DVD AGAIN. Weren’t the Director’s/Collector’s editions enough?!?!

John from Cincinnati
July 20, 2009 8:30 am

Still won’t buy the original movies on Blu Ray until the Director’s cuts are released for TMP and TWOK.

Mirror Jordan
July 20, 2009 8:35 am

I’m really tired of all the double dipping that Paramount does…I’m sure I’ll prick up one of these at some point, but come on!

Mirror Jordan
July 20, 2009 8:39 am

Actually, I’ll probably just get the Season 2 of TOS and wait until they release a set of all ten older movies on Blu Ray.

Jim Smith
July 20, 2009 8:40 am

@3 @ 4 @5 Don’t want ’em? Don’t buy ’em. It ain’t rocket science. It ain’t even reconfiguring the navigational deflector array to emit a tachyon pulse to disrupt their cloaking device’s harmonics.

Frakes commentary on INSURRECTION you say? You interest me strangely, Mr Frakes,

Jason
July 20, 2009 8:44 am

So, they’re releasing all the even numbered films, back when that meant something, by themselves. Now, I don’t know what to do, get the boxset, then my collection will match, and I do somewhat like Generations and Insurrection enough to get them, but then I have to live with a copy of Nemesis.

OneBuckFilms
July 20, 2009 8:48 am

Anthony, how on earth did they cajole you into doing a commentary track?

Are you going “studio” on us?

I kid, I kiiiiiidddd !!!!

I must say, the DVD sets look like they’ve been pared down from the 2 disc Special Editions I already have of all of the movies.

Good to see them on Blu-Ray. I wish they would redo the Directors Edition visuals and editing for the Blu-Ray release though.

Spock
July 20, 2009 8:49 am

Looks like the season 2 blu’s do not include the DS9 Tribble episode and other related content.

Driver
July 20, 2009 8:55 am

The EE on Generations SE DVD is very bad. I hope they remaster all the NG films for Blu. Gonna wait for reviews ‘fore I buy.

Joseph Coatar
July 20, 2009 9:04 am

So the theatrical cut of ‘Star Trek The Motion Picture’ will NOT be available on DVD by itself, but only in the boxset ?

jas_montreal
July 20, 2009 9:07 am

Ladies and Gentlemen ! ….

Its going to be expensive !!!

Dhuck
July 20, 2009 9:11 am

Yet another chance to release a directors cut (or editors cut) of Star Trek V utterly wasted….

Good going Paramount

Joseph Coatar
July 20, 2009 9:12 am

eh, $220.00, for everything in blu (all 10 movies plus TOS season 2) not too bad, no doubt amazon will discount as we get closer to release day, it can probably be had for $200-$190

Ultimate Trekker
July 20, 2009 9:19 am

I really hope the TNG blu’s are tru high definition and not some bogus ‘upconverted’ junk we saw with the TOS titles (exception of TWOK)…. crossing fingers

DATA476 (MATTHEW BURNS)
July 20, 2009 9:21 am

I think paramount have taken it a step to far this time…

TNG FILM (BLU-RAY) COLLECTION has many of the bonuses that the SPECIAL EDITION DVDS had, which I am proud to say that I do have… OK the DVD version has some new installments but I am disappointed with the BLU-RAY additional content, apart from a slightly better picture I don’t think your going to get much more for your money.

I don’t even have a BLU-RAY player anyway so I won’t be even be thinking of it. Because I already have all the TNG film on special edition I’ll give the whole thing a miss. I might well be interested in TOS collection though.. As I only have the sixth film on DVD.. might be a xmas present for 2009.. maybe..

July 20, 2009 9:42 am

Anthony is just some guy that Paramount pulled from a variety of random fans who had nothing to do with Star Trek First Contact. I would therefore conclude he would have nothing to contribute to these sets other than saying:

“I love this movie. It’s the best……Oh, I love this scene…… There’s Data……Look at that! Data got grabbed by the legs! Look at that!….Oh, that’s so funny with that drunk guy who invents the warp machine…… Hahaha! You hear that? He said ‘star trek’! Hahaha!

just like the writers who did the Star Trek VI commentary. I’d like to give this Anthony guy a piece of my mind and tell him to quit talking about what he thinks of Star Trek!

jas_montreal
July 20, 2009 9:55 am

@ 18. LOL. ”data got grabbed by the legs!” …. that part made me crack up !

But coman ! Its a super-fan commentary track. Thats the whole idea of the commentary track. Although… i would have loved to have commentary by each of the cast members of each TNG movie. Sadly that won’t happen !

Crusade2267
July 20, 2009 9:57 am

Will one of the Insurrection deleted scenes include Quark?

jas_montreal
July 20, 2009 9:57 am

BY THE WAY EVERYONE….

did you guys notice the Jonathan Frakes commentary for Star Trek Insurrection ?!?! Remember he criticized the movie way too much in the commentary… hence Paramount removed the commentary track from the DVD release of Insurrection. It’ll be very interesting to listen to his commentary for Insurrection this time around !

Mike Ten
July 20, 2009 10:05 am

I got a idea for Paramount/CBS. How about taking the animated Star Trek series and redo the animation with computer animation or standard animation and release it on Blueray. They could do the same thing they did for remastered Trek and include the original unaltered episodes for purists.

And while I’m wishing for the impossible how about letting Mr. Shatner do a directors edition of Trek 5 and fix the FX so we can get a decent blueray of it.

July 20, 2009 10:07 am

I can’t imagine Stuart Baird having a very good commentary track about his flopped movie either… how do you comment on your movie when everyone things it stunk to the high heavens?

July 20, 2009 10:36 am

^ #24

Hehe. I had fun typing that post. Commentaries are a different beast when it comes making them worth while. Some director’s can make a commentary just as entertaining as the film itself (Terry Gilliam, Ridley Scott, Joss Whedon, Nicholas Meyer) while others, not so much (Stuart Baird, George Lucas, Tim Burton, Brett Ratner). So be on the look out Anthony at ratethatcommentary.com, because your going to be reviewed!

And in regards to the transcript of your actual session, I actually just thought about the Arnold Schwarzenegger commentary track from Conan the Barbarian DVD and just substituted the Conan moments with Star Trek moments. Here’s what I mean.

July 20, 2009 10:46 am

What the hell do i want with a commentary by Lindelof and Pascale on a movie they have nothing to do with? I want a directors/actors/producers commentary of those who were involved.

Same thing with the bullshit Orci/Kurtzman commentary on the Voyage Home blu ray. What the hell was that?

jas_montreal
July 20, 2009 10:50 am

@ 27. It was a super-fan commentary track. To listen to the point of view of another fan. I personally loved the Ronald D Moore fan commentary for Search for spock on Blu-ray. That was incredible commentary. Also the fan commentary with manny coto for Wrath of khan. But once again…. if you don’t like it… you don’t have to listen to them.

Driver
July 20, 2009 10:51 am

#25 Speak for yourself. There are people who enjoyed Nemesis, like me.

ger
July 20, 2009 10:53 am

If I want to listen to fans opinion I read stuff here.

This whole Fan 2.0 stuff gets on my nerves.

“if you don’t like it… you don’t have to listen to them.”
Yeah, that’s obvious. Obvious is also that they could have done a non-bullshit commentary in the first place.

Star Trackie
July 20, 2009 10:56 am

Why on earth have those boneheads put a special feature about Matt Jefferies on the DVD of Generations?? Shouldn’t this feature have been attached to something he was actually involved with, say the original series season sets??

What’s next, a Rick Berman commentary on Star Trek: The Search for Spock?

jas_montreal
July 20, 2009 10:57 am

@ 30. Yea. I have to agree on that. I also have a problem with the ”fan 2.0” stuff. In a sense it is a ”bullshit” commentary, lol. But…. If they wanted to do fan commentary…. they should simply get past trek alumni’s to comment on the trek movies. It would have been REALLY INTERESTING to have have perhaps Nicholas Meyer comment on First Contact and where the Trek franchise had evolved into and his opinions on it.

But i’m a huge believer that they should have done the CAST commentaries. There should be commentaries with the entire cast involved. But once again… these huge studios NEVER DO THINGS RIGHT !

brian
July 20, 2009 11:12 am

That “Evolutions” disc lists:
Klingon Encounter
Borg Invasion 4D

does this mean they’re giving us the video that was on the screens during the rides? Or is it just some general featurette about the ride?

I’ve always wanted to own the former…

Shatner_Fan_Prime
July 20, 2009 11:12 am

#31 … IIRC correctly, Jeffries died before the 2-disc Generations DVD was originally released about 5 years ago, and so the tribute was attached to the disc as a timely extra. You’re right, though, it belongs on a TOS season set.

July 20, 2009 11:17 am

I’m all for the fan commentaries. Seriously. Although, where did the fan 2.0 come from?

I listened to Ron D. Moore’s commentary on Star Trek III, and this guy was honest! He places Trek III above his own Generations!

jas_montreal
July 20, 2009 11:19 am

@ 35. Yea. But what really struck me about the moore trek 3 commentary was that he even talked about the props and the many different connections to his own Star Trek work on ds9 and tng. Which was incredible. I really felt THAT commentary was truly a fan-commentary. Also the Manny Coto and nicholas Meyer on Trek 2 was incredible too. They talked about relevant stuff.

Simon
July 20, 2009 11:20 am

#16 – They weren’t “upconverts” and if you look at them and the DVDs at the same time you’ll see that they are a huge improvement. Having seen them all opening day and several other times theatrically in both 35MM and 70MM prints they will *never* look as sharp and clean as contemporary productions.

#17 – If you had a Blu-ray player you wouldn’t think it looks “slightly” better than DVD.

On topic: day one purchase for me. Good price too.

Trekee
July 20, 2009 11:24 am

TOS Season 2 looks very cool. The iPhone stuff sounds plain odd, but we’ll see.

May just have to get a movie or two but somehow think Nemesis and Insurrection will be skipped. Again.

July 20, 2009 11:46 am

My question is, will they release the “collector’s editions” on blu-ray? The only notable difference for me was 4 extra minutes on Wrath of Khan, and those four minutes are the sole reason I didn’t buy the blu-ray box set. Feel like I’m getting cheated or something.

Mirror Jordan
July 20, 2009 11:48 am

Well, upon reading it once again…the TNG set actually interests me…might have to pick that up. That bonus disk is fascinating.

Trekin' Thru
July 20, 2009 12:42 pm

Search for Spock didn’t seem to suffer the odd-numbered curse, why not release that indiviudally on DVD as well? I didn’t care for IV, so I don’t want the “Trilogy” box set.

jas_montreal
July 20, 2009 12:44 pm

@ 41. I’m sure they’ll release it down the road. Their most likely just releasing the even number movies so far individually. I’m guessing down the road we shall see the odd number movies released individually.

Mantastic

Directors/Extended editions or no dice.

Decloaking . . .

Why the frak would I want to listen to a Voyage Home commentary by Orci & Kurtzman, when they already have an excellent one by the Shat and Nimoy ??????????????? That does not compute.

Congats on getting the commentary for FC, Anthony!

Recloaking. }:-D>

Mike in the Mirror
July 20, 2009 1:26 pm

Why would I want to hear what Anthony has to say about First Contact? Did he actually have anything to do with the movie? Let me look through the end credits…….. Nope. If I’m ever forced to re-buy, I’ll remaster the disc and cut that commentary out.

Jim Smith
July 20, 2009 2:03 pm

@44 It might be interesting to hear the comments of these Trek screenwriters on another Trek screen outing? Or am I just crazy?

John
July 20, 2009 2:06 pm

Is that correct? TOS Season 2 on Blu-ray is really only $80? That’s great!

jas_montreal
July 20, 2009 2:18 pm

wow, lol, a huge cry from trek fans over the fan commentaries for the movies. I hope Paramount is listening !

NO MORE FAN COMMENTARIES IN THE FUTURE OF STAR TREK HOME VIDEO RELEASES !!

THE LINE MUST BE DRAWN HERE !

THIS FAR, NO FURTHER !

Shatner_Fan_Prime
July 20, 2009 2:29 pm

ST commentaries have always been a mixed bag. During ST V, Shat’s daughter seemed to remember more about the making of the film than he did! But ST IV, with Shat & Nimoy doing the commentary, was just a lot of fun.

T2
July 20, 2009 2:32 pm

I think Season 2 of TOS-R is best buy here. I think Paramount’s apathetic effort on special features for the movies is ridiculous, but not surprising. Still, I’ll be buying, for sure, the TNG Blu-Ray movies and TOS-R season 2 Blu-Ray, because until something better comes out, I want to have something. If a few years down the line they remaster them with new director’s cuts and such, I’ll get those too. It’s been happening for years. They released the original movies on DVD 9 or 10 years ago, then a few after that they released the Special Editions. I can imagine they’ll do that again with Blu-Ray, but again, none of this is surprising to me. The only two things here that really have me scratching my head and asking Paramount why they’re wasting production is the fact they’re releasing single Trek movies on regular DVD for the third time already. Stop doing that! I have another rant on the commentaries, but until I hear them, I won’t say anything on them.

On the bright side, at least come September when I walk down the Sci-Fi aisle at a video store, I’ll see more than just a copy of Nemesis and maybe a season of Enterprise on the shelf next to shelves and shelves of Stargate and Star Wars.
