Any way watched the 2 disc collectors edition dvd the weekend and monday night and yesterday . I seem to all of a suden rekindeled my love affair with this movie.

    Out standing!!!

    Spocks death brings tears to my eyes every time.
    If you watch the making of feature on the disc, even harve bennet the producer gets emotional talking about it.
    Nick miyer the direct even says that there were people on set while the scene was being filmed that had to cover their mouths to stop them selves crying!!

    Hell all this talking about it...........MIght just have to watch it agin to night :clap:

    As a fellow trekkie (sshhhh!) this is also one of my favourite Star Trek films. Second to First Contact in my fave list. I have a CD soundtrack to First Contact and like you I have been known to play it in the car, although not when anyone else is in the car with me though!!

    I bought my ST2-WoK album back in 82/83 and consider it one of the best soundtrack albums ever, it was also the third soundtrack album I ever bought (after Star Wars tesb and ET) and it introduced me to the prolific - if samey, james horner.
    My favourite scene is right at the end when everyone the bridge is looking at the new born genesis planet, bones asks jim how he's feeling and jim replies 'I feel young' - thats my teary eyed moment! :blush:
    The death of spock has lost its impact due to repeated watchings but I can recall watching it in the cinema back in 82 and being amazed at the reaction - everyone in the theatre was crying! (myself included!)
    I find that as touching as the scene is, its the accompanying music that sets the scene perfectly.

    Was interesting to watch the version with the extra footage, but I would say that it does not make that much difference to the film.

    What are the extra scenes ? I've watched the directors edition but I can't remember seeing any additional stuff. Is it on disk 2 or something ?

    That bit with the trainee always struck me as a bit odd - when Scottie appears in the bridge standing in the turbo lift holding the dieing trainee in his arms. Shouldn't he have taken the guy straight to sick bay instead of parading him on the bridge first ?

    In the directors edition we learn that the cadet in question is scottys nephew.On the writen commentary track on the disk michael okooda( i think thats how is name is spelt) states that maybe it was the shock of the moment of something like this happening to his nephew that made him take him to the bridge.

    Also if you have seen this film on the tv before ,it has had some of theses scenes in it already. That might be why it does not look all that different to you.

    That's probably it - I recorded it off the TV on VHS when I was a kid and I used to watch it all the time.

    I suspect there are a few other people out there like me who can say each characters line before they say it for the length of the whole film.

    I only saw the TV version of the film a few years ago and it does make abit more sense why scotty brings him to the bridge as before I had no idea why he would do that but after you know that he is scotty's nephew he could well be in shock. The only major difference I noticed between the tv version and the directors edition is the scene in sickbay after scotty's nephew dies, it normally then has Scotty say "he stayed at his post while the trainee's ran" then the intercom calls for kirk, he answers and they leave. In the directors edition there is a much bigger gap between scotty's line and the intercom where Kirk and McCoy talk about events, doesnt really add much plot but it is a good minute or so longer.

    I think there are many films like this that people become attached to and can resite the lines of by heart.

    The first time I saw the wrath of khan was on a pan and scan vhs from the local rental shop.I then owened the film in various forms untill i got the dvd.

    I could probably sit down now and recite the whole film in my head (now that is quite sad!!!)

    By the way I did watch it again last night but we had a power cut half way through.

    Will probably have to put it on again the week end to make up for it :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: That will drive the missus up the wall. She bloomin hates all things sci fi let alone star trek :laugh: :laugh:
