    I'll either get the Blu-ray or HD-DVD version of the set. Not sure yet.

    The 5 disc set is a work of art. This has to be THE release of the year...

    All I can do is stare at that UCE briefcase pic. I should go get some breakfast...

    Nah, what's one meal skipped when I can have more time staring at that UCE?

    Allow me to join everyone else in saying this is going to be THE release of the year, if not all of DVD history (yeah, I'm a bit excited).

    which has been spectacularly restored and remastered from original elements and scanned at 4K resolution. - original post

    Does anyone know what the Final Cut retains to? Minutes of added scenes?

    I bought the restored/remastered version a couple of months back. The transfer was a huge improvement. As to the releases, I will go for the 4-disc set as of now. Very excited!

    Looked it up and the Final Cut does include new scenes as well as new effects:

    Regarding the new version of the film, it's been remastered, rescored, and all kinds of rejiggered -- hopefully for the best. (Long-running complaints about voice-over narration and origami aside, It's not like the last version was really "lacking," now was it?) New scenes and dialog have been added; effects have been polished; you name it.

    I generally wouldn't go for the fancy briefcase ultra-edition but seeing how it's the only place to get the "ultra-rare, near-legendary Workprint version of the film" I guess I'll have to......
