Saw it today, but hadn’t yet watched it on Paramount+.
The biggest distinctions for me were in the V’Ger flyover scenes. Much more detail and visual interest to see just what’s going on there. Still a little long in the tooth for those scense but a definite improvement. Also, while TMP has always been a guilty pleasure, I’d never seen it on the big screen and it is definitely well served there vs on a television (even if a large one).
Still glaring matte lines around the Klingon ships which was weird to see but, meh
The story is solid (if a bit recycled) sci-fi story with good character moments. If one were to re-shoot that movie with modern sensibilities, it would (imo) stand up against other modern good sci-fi like Arrival and Interstellar.
Hopefully folks that haven’t enjoyed it will go see it and give it another shot.
