I watched the TDK at a cinema where the bass was crazy , you could barely hear the dialog and the surrounds were cracking and popping.It was that bad.

I saw Star Trek at an IMAX about 4 hours from my house (I was just happened to be vacationing where they were showing it again on IMAX), and it was good, but not great. The high end was too harsh, and the lows weren't that impressive at all. It did have some crazy dynamics, but overall is sounded like it was just turned up too loud. Kind of disappointed in the sound, since that was all I was really looking forward to at the IMAX. Others say it sounded great in the theater they saw it in. Still love the hell out of this movie, though.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

I am fortunate enough to have just seen the "bluray".

It is absolutely stunning. LITTLE TO NO DNR!!!! Perfect amount of grain present - barely noticeable, but it's 100% naturally there. It's a beautiful transfer - lush colors, outstanding black detail, and the soundtrack is probably the best I've heard of any bluray so fars. Detail is astounding - it's slightly better than Quantum of Solace and right up there with the Pixar flicks.

The low end is simply unreal when the Romulan ship jumps to warp in the final fight scene (we're talking about almost brown note stuff here!) and the surround mix is simply out of this world during the phaser fights. The surround ambiance on the bridge made me feel like I was literally there. Dynamics are phenomenal if you've got the system to realize them.

I don't care if they charge $100 for this disc, I'll be buying it the second it hits stores and throwing a movie party that night.

Quite simply, this movie reminds me why I so passionately love home theater. I was so afraid that they weren't going to do this title right, and I am just so ecstatic that they took the time to make something special.

Well at least we have previews on the Star Trek TNG discs.

I really never feared this one wouldn't be done with outstanding quality to tell the truth. And if I can get it early like I did with TDK, I'll pay the price I did as well for that one!

I'm hoping the BD looks good but imho it was a really ugly looking, harsh film. Lots of blown out contrast, (a way overused look that I hate btw...) and deliberately lens flared, shaky, poorly focussed. I know that was the desired look but compared to watching Generations the other nite, that was a beautiful looking film. I know they wanted a new "look" but jeez...

Are these trailers in DD or TrueHD?

I'd agree with this. But I have to admit, most films in the theaters look very washed out and grainy compared to HD at home, which I guess is why we all lover our HT's

I would have to disagree with your opinion,as I happend to see ST in an all digital presentation off of the D-cinema master in a private screening room,and it was stunning!
The contrast was not blown out to my eyes at all,colors were rich and the blacks were very deep especially during the interior shots of nero's ship and the shots of outer space.
I did not notice any out-of-focus shots....

IF YOU ARE GOOD AT SOMETHING,NEVER DO IT FOR FREE!

Yes it is entirely possible.... a great many issues can and will arise when you are dealing with film and mass-produced prints.
In either case I'm expecting the BR to look great!
p.s. that clip is very good....

I saw ST in 2K D-Cinema on a large-ish screen (twice) and it looked stunning. Some of the hand held stuff is obviously going to have some motion blur, by design knowing Abrams' style, but the more conventional static and dolly shots are gorgeous. The BD is going to be REALLY gorgeous based on the 1080p rip I have seen. The soundtrack is insane.

Speaking of the preview on the Star Trek TNG movies, did you notice that it says available now on DVD and BD? I guess they goofed on that one.

Actually, the TNG set was created in the year 2010 and then sent back in time to 2009 using red matter. This would explain why the preview says that the new movie is "now available." Of course, now we're all living in an alternate timeline, but what can you do? These things happen.

My sentiments exactly,some of the outer space shots were gorgeous.
The D.P. on this show is the great Dan Mindel,he also shot MI:3 for Abrams and has also worked with Tony Scott on Enemy of the State.
He has a very distinct visual style....one of my favorite D.P.'s.

I'm looking forward to it. It could very well have been the film print. Just looked really washed out, jacked up contrasty...

I saw this at the DLP theater I always go(never had a picture issue) to, and there were definitely a lot of out of focus shots...not motion blur mind you(which doesn't bother me). But every few cuts a shot will be out of focus. I know for a fact I saw it
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Spoiler  
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
when kirk gets beamed back up onto the ship...or was it when he got kicked out, it was when he was arguing with Spock on the bridge during one of those two parts
, there was camera movement but nothing fast enough where blur would become an issue.

Other than that beautiful photography...too much lens flare though. Yes lens flare can work(as it did here, mostly), but it was overdone just a enough to where it became a joke. Some one want to turn it into a drinking game?

Ridiculous codec tier sig gone. Still AVC/24bit lossless fanboy.

Studio quality tier
Most Major studios>Small Studios>dogs>cats>Warner(the guys that do new movies)

I saw it in a real IMAX, and it had several out of focus shots. Bad out of focus. Like someone reaching up to your projector lense and cranking it one way or the other.

Still....

It's a fantasticly fun movie that I can't wait to get my hands on. Especially since I'm more interested in the sound than the picture anyway.

The Lens Flare didn't bother me at all. I also saw this at a DLP showing and it was phenomenal looking. I didn't notice any out of focus shots that didn't appear to be intentional and I really liked the color saturation of the deck of the Enterprise (stark whites and deep colors of the uniforms) contrasting against the dark space. I honestly think ST never looked better.

Even my wife who doesn't EVER comment on PQ be it at home or in the theater said it looked amazing.
