STAR TREK 4K (2009) 5


“Star Trek” arrives in 4K looking like the best disc I’ve seen in the format. While I hate calling anything the “Best Of” less than 6 months into a new format, this is the disc to beat. From the opening attack on the Kelvin to young Kirk wrecking his stepfather’s car or the destruction of Vulcan, there is nothing but demo scene after demo scene. For those that don’t remember what happened in the movie or never cared to see it, I’ll break it down. Romulan weirdo heads back in time and kills Kirk’s dad. Old Spock goes after him, gets stuck in the past. New timeline forms that’s better than anything Star Trek has offered since 1991. The grace period doesn’t last that long. Sorry, JJ.

I could take the time hear to wax poetic about the Star Trek revamp right before the third movie hits. But, I’m not interested in that. What I want to say is that I was wrong about 4K. While it’s still niche within niche, there’s an added bonus to rediscovering slightly recent films through a new filter. HDR is starting to win me over, but even I  don’t have the best system to observe all of this. Hell, creating a true Dolby Atmos field is like pulling teeth on the home theater circuit. But, we do what we can and evolve. If you’re going to pick a 4K set over the Holidays, then Star Trek 4K must be the first disc you grab. Impress your friends, shame your neighbors.
