II and IV are outstanding, but won't watch the others again, esp I. That has to be about the most boring space movie I have ever seen.

Watch the director's cut of 1. Still too long (literally and figuratively), but much better than the theatrical release. I'd love to see a 4k "final cut" of 1 where they clean up the image/sound, cut the long boring 2001-esque scenes, but leave in the added scenes from the director's cut.

Thanks for the tip! I saw the original in the theater and can't remember who I was with, but I think they fell asleep.

Lol. Yes. Many people did fall asleep. Some referred to it as Star Trek - The Motionless Picture. Haha. The DC isn't a revelation, but it is better. Grab a strong pot of coffee and give it a watch.

No love for VI?

As the saying used to go before Nemesis, the even ones are good and the odd ones are bad

Star Trek #1 ("The Motion Picture") is quite slow and easy to fall asleep watching. However, Jerry Goldsmith's soundtrack is beyond awesome (especially "The Enterprise" track) and if you are a ST:TOS fan, then you watch it because you like the characters (even if Shatner's rug is distracting and the uniforms yucky).

We all know #2 and #4 are the best and most enjoyable of the 6 movies. #3 is OK. #5 is the worst (Jerry Goldsmith's soundtrack helps but it's nowhere as good as #1). #6 is above average.

Pretty much if you don't already like ST:TOS, you probably won't want these movies. This set has been on sale so many times over the years.

I have the ST:TMP soundtrack on my phone. Lol. Have you watched the Director's Cut?

That's a nice deal for all 6 movies. The name "Original Motion Picture" Collection is a little misleading since the first movie is titled "The Motion Picture". It might be better titled "Original Cast Collection". At first I thought this was only for the first movie.

No and I don't expect CBS/Paramount to invest heavily in new masters for the latter Star Trek sequels.

Yes. I saw the Director's Cut once, and I should watch it again soon.

I must be in the minority, but I really liked the first one. Took ST in a more 2001 vibe. Yes they could cut an hour. But as a fan that 20 minute eye candy scene showing the enterprise was amazing after years without a new episode.
