This is a fab film, one of my favs but how often do people actually watch these extras. I've seen the original DVD release posted on HUKD for as little as 1.99 in sales. Knowing that, I wouldn't pay an additional £5 for 2 more discs to provide me with additional extras. OTT or what. This really is another attempt for the film company to reel in more dosh. So many versions of DVD films. It's :w00t:

My husband watches the extras on DVDs he gets, and a lot of film fans do find ths stuff interesting (I admit that whilst I always tend to go for the release with the most extras, I don't get round to watching them for ages though.)

Besides, as I understand it this version has greatly improved picture and sound quality (the DTS soundtrack is apparently outstanding) over the original release, which would be reason enough for upgrading to this version (as we have done - we got the original release when it forst came out.)

I've never seen this version reduced like this before, so if you are interested in the extras and a good pciture and sound quality, I'd say go for this (I'd rather pay the extra for this, although as I said, we already had the original release anyway.)

I'm very much into quality and can justify paying more for notable improvements to sound and vision. I have done so myself but the vast majority of folk simply have a DVD player just plugged into a TV and have no intention to sample the delights of DTS.

Admittedly, the DVD bug left me about 5 years ago so if I didn't own this DVD the question I'd ask myself is how much better is it over the original or is the original good enough. I have found some DVD extras interesting but I struggle to even find the time to watch any of my film collection. With so much on TV today to choose from, where do working people who socialize, have PCs and hobbies find the time to watch extras let alone the film itself.

The main point of my previous post is how I'm irritated with the release of so many versions of the same film especially when they use extra extras as a sales pitch. I think your post is good and I think the price is good for what it is but I believe the majority would rather pay less for the original.
