    Ok, what Tarantino fan doesn't have all of these already??

    I'd buy the 2 new special features discs alone, but I'm not double-dipping on these. The only way I'd even had considered it is if they had included the long-awaited Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair.

    Craig,

    I agree with you. I own many of these titles already.
    As much as I love the idea of a boxed set, I am not double-dipping.

    Exactly. I own every one on Blu-Ray already. I am a Tarantino fanatic however, and may buy it just for the 2 discs. I still consider him the best film maker there is currently.
    Kill Bill The Whole Bloody Affair.......whatever happened to this? Did it get scrapped because of the third installment movie being made in the near future?

    You'd be hard pressed to find a bigger Tarantino fan than me but there's no way I'm buying the same movies for the bonus discs. How many times am I going to watch the bonus material to makes it worth $75 or so?

    I plan on watching them, and selling the set after. Shouldn't take too big of a hit.

    I'm missing Dogs, Romance and Death Proof on blue. I might bite on this since I haven't paid more then $12 on the other titles, Basterds being the exception at $20. I can sell the old discs for half the price of this set. And I need the shelf space. :(
