Arriving today on Ultra HD Blu-ray is the latest installment in the Star Trek Franchise, Star Trek Beyond. Whether you're a Trekkie or not, this film is a mostly fun ride that will give home theater systems a workout for virtually its entire two-hour runtime.
Watching first-run, Hollywood movies in your home the day they come out is pretty much the dream of true home theater ownership. But, if you’re a law-abiding citizen, and care anything about quality, then this has remained a dream for most.
