4K digital is barely half the quality of a properly mastered 4K Disc! 4K Disc is the king... long live the king!!!
4K Disc is way ahead clearly.
I can see why some chose 4K streaming but in a few years the first thing the streamers will do when no more physical media is reduce bandwidth costs to save money which means cutting the stream back & no-one will be able to complain as no alternative!
Star Trek The Peculiar?I know that I’ll be double dipping for the super duper 4K of TMP next year but when I thought about it the only films that I watch on a regular basis are the first two so I cancelled my boxset pre order and went with the Spanish individual releases.

STMP Had a $32M VFX budget alone! In 1979 that was a massive amount of money for VFX. For many years STMP had an entry in the Guinness Book Of Records as the highest budget movie ever made!
Several excellent making of books covered some of the background on the production elements. Paramount wanted their own Star Wars. Gene Roddenberry wanted above all else some of his discarded new TV series ideas. The entire film was made under immense time pressures. But the end results are still to this day unmatched on many levels
Still have that one read it back when it first came out. Its a slightly humours non PR take on things from his perspective as the unknown (apart from Star Trek) bit player!
I love TMP and maybe it was just because I went straight from watching the reruns of the original show on television to being amazed by Douglas Trumbull’s special effects work on the big screen but it had a sense of epic that none of the sequels ever managed.
Nothing announced for September in the UK but you can be sure they will all be available separately eventually along with steelbooks and any other bundle they can think up.The only one of the films being released again of interest to me is the second film, Wrath of Khan. Are the titles going to be sold separately, does anyone know?
