Standard Orbit 277: Emergency Alert, Negative Control At Helm
The Motion Picture Theatrical Cut vs. Director's Edition.
With the fortieth anniversary of Star Trek: The Motion Picture upon us there have been whispers of a 4K upgrade of the film and beyond even that, a 4K (and for the first time, high definition) upgrade of the Director's Edition from 2001. This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart discuss the likelihood of this coming to pass and also compare the theatrical and director's cuts of the film.
What changes to the Director's Edition work, and which don't? Are there some areas where the theatrical cut is superior? Can The Motion Picture finally start getting the respect it deserves? All this and more in this week's Standard Orbit, boldly listen!
