I meant in regards to the effects that had no work done on them a look bad getting fixed. I can’t talk about the quality of the movie because I never seen any of og Star Trek same goes for most of Star Trek the next generation.

Not that I disagree with the notion that some of the effects work on this doesn’t look great, but why exactly are you invested in this without having seen the film, lol?

I would strongly recommend watching “the Motion Picture” when it releases on disc. The vintage effects work is stunning, and while others will point to Khan as more emblematic of the relationships at the core of Trek (and I probably agree), I find that TMP’s serious take on high concept sci-fi makes for easily the best Star Trek film. This is particularly with the final (and very necessary) pass on the editing and sound design the director’s edition offers. And outside of the context of Trek, what I think often gets dismissed as middlebrow space fare genuinely deserves a place among Wise’s best efforts.

The fact we have this in UHD, even with its (expected) shortcomings is fantastic and I recommend you give it a shot (the rotowork is bad, but it goes by in a minute 😉 ).
