Mini-Review:
After getting jazzed about the “Star Trek” reboot in theaters now, it’s fun to go back and revisit the original films again. I enjoyed introducing my kids to “The Wrath of Khan” on this Blu-ray set and look forward to showing them some of the other films (say, the even numbered ones as the legend states). It’s cool to see both the strengths and weaknesses of the earlier “Trek” films and figure out what Abrams pulled from in order to make the new movie so successful. The new Blu-ray treatment also make the films look fantastic on HD televisions. I never realized how bright the colors in space were in “Star Trek II.”

With all the original “Trek” movies offered again, you get a ton of bonus features, too. There’s a stunning number here. And not only do you get previously released bonus features, but new ones. There are new interviews with cast and crew (and my favorite composer James Horner), a commentary by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman (who wrote the new movie) on “Star Trek 4,” and other cool stuff. Also new is “The Captain’s Summit,” a 70 minute interview with William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, and Whoopi Goldberg. It’s an interesting interview for Trekkie and non-Trekkie alike.

With 7 Blu-ray Discs included in this set, it’s a fantastic deal. You can buy it for $70, so that’s around $10 per disc. You just can’t find Blu-rays at that price easily. This is a worthy addition to your DVD collection.
