Should I Buy It Is the First Contact SCE worth my money?
Posted 19 March 2005 - 07:29 PM
However, First Contact's SCE isn't really that much; it's certainly cheaper than most 2-disc releases. I got it for $14.95 Canadian, whereas most good releases are in the high 20s or low 30s.
I'd go for it. The bonus features are pretty good, and though I've never seen the original DVD of the movie, I've read in reviews that the SCE's video transfer is improved, as well as the addition of a DTS track.

You had the original 3 moves out at the cinema, then on VHS shortly after. Then they re-released it on VSH with THX sound & video re-mixing, then the "new" special edition released at the cinemas, then they brought that out on VHS shortly after saying "This will never be released again" Episode one comes along at the cinema, then comes to VHS, and out of the blue it comes on DVD, then the Old 3 movies make the DVD appearnce.
Star Trek has been sorta the same sadly. Not sure if I even want to guess how much money both have made from scams like that.

I guess I'll have to get that too! That way I have three copies for every possible setup!
Acutally, I still need to get the LaserDisc version...

That may prove unwise. Even putting aside the fact that HD-DVD is the inferior format between itself and Blu-Ray; it's very doubtful whether this disc will contain anything the newly-released SCE doesn't already have. So, unless you feel like spending the likely-to-be $1000+ price for an HD-DVD player when they're first released, and are willing to risk the HD-DVD format failing utterly in the wake of Blu-Ray (hopefully, it will); it may be a better choice to hold off on buying anything to do with either of the next-gen formats.

I'm a bit more optomistic, I hope the HD-DVD and blueray will go the way of the dvd-r and dvd+r formats. The future players will play both. That seems to be the best of both worlds. Cheap HD-DVDs for the masses and high quality blueray for the hometheater fanitics. I think it will work out in the end in order to help the transition to HDTV from standard TV. Remember they are still willing to merge the two formats at this time.
So put on a happy face.

Maybe, however the first generation of next-gen format players won't play both types of discs; unless there's some combination of the two formats before they're launched in North America. And if there is a combo-player among the first generation, the price tag will probably double if you want one relative to a single-format player.
I do intend to switch over to a next-gen format eventually; when there's a slightly more reasonable price and a format which looks to be sticking around instead of going under, but there's no way anyone could convince me to buy into the things at the very beginning, when the industry is in its infancy.

However, by now I'm sure it's been marked down at Wal-mart or someplace like that (IF you can find it) so why not get it?
