Default 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' - High-Def Digest Review

In order to do them all justice, High-Def Digest is reviewing each film in the 'Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection' individually. We'll get into the nitty gritty of each movie as we cover the other titles, but overall, the complete set is an easy recommendation.

First up, Josh has reviewed 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture.' He says this is the most underrated of the 'Trek' films. The high-def video and lossless audio are both terrific. Plenty of extras as well.

Full review here:

I agree with everything said here. I watched this movie for the first time since being like 17 and found it to be extremely engaging.

I like the idea of each disc getting its own review. Cool stuff.

I do believe this is the first time I've ever seen a Dolby TruHD 7.1 track on a movie! I'm impressed.

I feel like celebrating; it's a rare day indeed that I agree with Josh Z but, for my money, the first three films in the series are the best. In fact, for all the adoration WRATH OF KHAN gets, parts I and III (the latter of which is my personal favorite, and I'll go to my grave stunned that I'm in a tiny minority for believing so), in my opinion, are the two that most powerfully capture what was important about STAR TREK. The intellectual breadth of TMP and the emotional breadth of TSFS are unmatched elsewhere in the series.

Same here. Good to hear that the pq in this flick is not as bad as I had read on other reviews. May have to get the boxset after all....I was just planning on gettting II,III, and IV.
