Jaws: 30th Anniversary Edition
With the inclusion of the original Oscar-winning sound mix (finally!), maybe Universal got it right this time. Fans of the "whale song" can finally rejoice. ;)

Well, the cover doesn't look "bad-ass", they ruined it. The poster art for this movie is iconic, and to not have it there is a real pity. Maybe it's on the inside?
Oh, and I bought the last super-duper release and have watched it twice. Whale noises or not, this isn't going to be a double dip for me.

I hate to say it , but I will probably double dip on this one to get the two hour documentary

These are better whale sounds. (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00000IJIW/qid=1113377823/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/103-5578011-2623832)

This is one DVD that I kept putting off buying. Though I really can't stand Universal, I'll definitely pick it up on the release date.

Being the Jaws superfreak that I am this is a sure-fire double-dip.

I think I might have already said this, but I'm all over this like a fat kid on a cupcake.
04-13-2005, 02:01 PM
i have to double dip on this one.
04-13-2005, 03:30 PM
will pass on this new dvd
04-13-2005, 03:43 PM
I'll be passing as well, I'm satisfied with the previous release.

Yeah, I don't see anything too improtant on this new release that would require a double-dip at this time. I'm happy with the prior SE, plus you have the whole "HD" thing on the horizon so I'm sure it'll get yet another Super Duper SE release after that point. I can wait.

I'm undecided on double-diping. I viewed my current release not too long ago & its pretty darn good.
If it comes out a very affordable price (say, less than $15 in-store) I'll probably dip yet again.
04-13-2005, 05:27 PM
sigh...what the fuck. That's all I gotta say.

unsure. But I think I'll wait for an inevitable format upgrade a la HD.

I'd like to have this on DVD but it's on television every other weekend, it seems. I love the film but unless I see a cheap used copy somewhere I'll probably save my money.
It's me, Billy

I'm getting it for two reasons.
The original mono soundtrack
The full 2 hour documentary from the LaserDisc
Too bad they couldn't have also added Jaws: The E! True Hollywood Story (2 hours, about 1 hour and 20-30 minutes without commercials though) and a commentary track with Roy Scheider.

I'm just getting it because I don't have it yet and I don't have cable. I don't like watching it all chopped up by commercials, but I used to watch it all the time on tv. If this was 5 years ago, I probably wouldn't buy it. I still won't get it though if it is more than $15. Hopefully I can catch it upon release so I don't have to wait for the price to drop back down.
Yet another I always kept kicking myself in the ass for not getting everytime i leave the store, but now I'm quite happy I waited.

I'll double dip for this one. :)
for the longer documentary.
04-14-2005, 03:30 AM
I think I'll pass. I can't believe it's already been five years since the last edition came out.
I've got the original DTS 25th Anniversary edition AND the Signature Collection LD (with the full 2 hour documentary) so of course this one is a no-go for me.
04-14-2005, 01:40 PM
If it had a commentary and improved transfer I think I would have double dipped, but as it stands the Documentary is pretty long as it is on the old DVD. It would have to be at a great price.
04-14-2005, 02:04 PM
Not only is it pretty long - I watched it ONCE. So like, why upgrade that :D
As someone mentioned, I'll likely upgrade this to HD when the time comes. The last disc looks pretty damn good.
