Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

More than simply a "director's cut," this new edition features enhanced, and in some cases completely redone, special effects as well as (for a change of pace) cuts to tighten the dawdling story. It may not fly with purists, but director Robert Wise makes his case in the documentary featurette "Redirecting the Future," which details the changes with scene-by-scene comparisons, and on the commentary track, which he shares with special-effects legends Douglas Trumbull and John Dykstra (revisiting work they created over 20 years ago), actor Stephen Collins, and composer Jerry Goldsmith. Elder statesman Wise speaks in a slow and ponderous manner, but he gets his point across. Further documentaries tackle the project's leap from TV pilot to blockbuster feature and the making of the film itself, and a supplemental gallery gathers the original scenes cut or condensed from the theatrical version and all 11 scenes from the 1983 TV version. --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

The word is that the new CGI effects were only rendered at 480p for DVD quality, so they either must re-render them or redo them. I hope that they do as the Director's Cut is the best version of the film.

Horrid picture quality for DVD?
I agree, the picture quality is quite poor, especially in comparison to the HD version of the original movie available for streaming from Amazon
