    Danm, I hate those french translation everywhere on the packaging! They even translated "a STEVEN SPIELBERG film" to "un film de STEVEN SPIELBERG" [​IMG]

    Great news on the music. Really sounds like they did a bang up job for the 1982 transfer. Given I am keeping my LD box set which carries the orignal soundtrack I really could not be more pleased...

    Jonathan, it was established they used the 02 mix although it carries the relevant tweaks restoring it to the 1982 cut (the "terrorist" line and additional music).

    Well, I'm not really one to scorn what's being said - as I too desperately hope that the 1982 version of ET is indeed on the 2nd disc... but I found this article...

    Now, I don't know... what does anyone else think?

    Unless there is a compelling reason with the extras on the discs to buy the Boxed Set (ie full documentary, etc.), it's the two disc-er for me!

    Dan, I can asssure you, I definitely want to believe this story.

    However, Speilberg being a bit like Mr Lucas, I can't see him authorising the line change. Especially having read that article about the orignal Laserdisc verion and VHS (which I still have)already being cut. Plus he tweaked theatrical prints too.

    Surely Spielberg considers the 1988 VHS and Laserdisc version as his original vision?

    Neil, seriously, those who have the disc, those who have posted in this thread will tell you it's there!!!!
    David,
    Can you, or anyone else with the set, do me a BIG favour and turn to the live recording music track and tell me if right at the very beginning just before the logo or as the logo appears if someone in the crowd shouts "I love you John"? That voice will be the cry of a friend of mine from a filmmusic forum who is itching to know if he made the track. [​IMG]

    So what exactly is my reason for keeping my Ultimate Edition pre-order? Anyone?

    Adam, when we know thwe full final spec of the gift set, we'll know then. Right now we know of no one with the set to come forward. Like I've said, if mine comes tomorrow or tuesday as expected, I'll report in immediately.

    David, can we get a comparison between Dan's Gift Set content and two disc content. Are there any differences?
