Star Trek (2009)
The greatest adventure of all time begins with Star Trek, the incredible story of a young crew's maiden voyage onboard the most advanced starship ever created: the U.S.S. Enterprise. On a journey filled with action, comedy and cosmic peril, the new recruits must find a way to stop an evil being whose mission of vengeance threatens all of mankind. The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James Kirk (Chris Pine), is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock (Zachary Quinto), was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before.
Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
Pioneering director J.J. Abrams delivers an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

I never bought Into Darkness the first time it came around due to it not having the alternating aspect ratios.
This is definitely worth the purchase, even witout the 3D version in IMAX aspect ratios.
The scenes in 1.78:1 are just overwhelming. It's the way it was meant to be seen and should have been released the first time.
If you observe closely, if you look for it, you can see the IMAX scenes suffer a bit of picture quality due to lowered bitrates over the cropped release. Some frames don't look as nearly clean as the first release. Some artefacts are slightly visible, but you can get past that easily enough.
I hope this doesn't turn into another Gladiator fiasco.
The casing is pretty enough. The ship on the front is slightly raised so it has a nice texture to it.
However, I'm not too excited over the insides. There's a new and interesting way the discs are kept.
They overlap in an intricate fashion that you want to be careful when dealing with any of the underlying discs.
It looks pretty for presentation, but not very practical if you're someone who likes to fiddle with discs a lot.
I'll just add the special features disc to a book I have at the side of my collection.
Well let's start here, this is a four disc set, 2 discs for each movie.
I got this at a steal of a deal late last year when the price was shockingly low!!! $9.99 to be exact!!!
As for the Special Features, absolutely nothing new has been added to the Star Trek discs! no big surprise there!
On to the real "criminal", Star Trek Into Darkness!!!
Let me digress a bit, so please bear with me. On it's original blu-ray release, there was a controversial scenario with regards to the "exclusive" Special Features being offered. I-tunes was the only source for the commentary track(s), Best buy had their bonus select features disc & even Target had their "extras" disc also!!! This was a nightmare for fans who wanted as many Special features as possible. At the time, purchasing the Best Buy Canada version with it's exclusive 3rd disc & obtaining the Target exclusive disc separately, which is currently still available at bluraysforeveryone.com, was the solution for me to get the best variety of Special Features available!
It was a "nasty" gimmick perpetrated by those sly execs of Paramount!!! So they decided to have one more go at us fans this time around!
& here we have it , The compendium!!! So what's new? Is it worth it? Should you get rid of your old discs? Did you holdoff from buying it as this debacle reared it's ugly head???
It all depends on you the fan & potential buyer. You get the complete amalgamation of the original release , Bestbuy & Target "exclusive" Special Features!!!
In addition to those features, the new stuff consists of an enhanced commentary, all the IMAX scenes are present in tact during the feature, 3 "new" featurettes, a gag reel & 7 deleted scenes!!!!Read more ›
It's also worth mentioning the second movie has all the Imax sequences inserted back, as well as an audio/video commentary and many featurettes on a second disc.
All in all, if you have yet to buy the J.J. Abrams movies, you better get this set. As a fan of special bonuses, they've put on quite a few hours, but nothing new for 2009's Star Trek. Nevertheless, THIS is the version you want to take home.
