    The cover looks like a bootleg. I know Wolverine isn't supposed to be clean shaven with a nice 'do but Hugh Jackman looks like they rustled him out of bed one morning and threw the uniform on him and took the picture.

    If this was supposed to drum up some anticipation for the sequel, why do it so early? Why not wait till closer to the release date? Or is there something else prepared?

    Ric,
    I believe 1.6 will have additional chapter stops. [​IMG]

    I'm guessing that the "15 minutes through additional enhanced viewing mode" is why they're billing it as X-Men 1.5

    I think the "1.5" moniker is corny as hell, but an SE by any other name...

    Well, again, the report CLEARLY stated that the change came after the specs were released.
    Is everyone's memory so short that the ET release fiasco is already forgotten? Which online vendor correctly listed the ET release specs? Uh, none.
    I don't expect Amazon or any other retailer to change any info now. Most of them keep up whatever crap they intially had till the freaking thing shows up and bites them in the ass.
    Again, everyone mad about the 1.5 thing, could I please hear your opinion of the 1.5 title as it pertains to the NEW CUT of the film. Do you think that SPECIFIC idea is wrong or misleading (to name the DVD 1.5 because it has a new version of the film on it)?
    If not, then you don't have a problem with this release after all. Fox WAS going to have a new version of the film, thus the 1.5 title. Now they ARE NOT going to, thus no 1.5 title. BUT all the vendors already had it listed with the original spec and won't be changing it anytime soon (they NEVER do because most of the time they are totally clueless).
    I will go against FOX if when the release shows up I see 1.5 adverts and 1.5 on the DVD cover. But otherwise I see this as FOX having to cut an idea for something they wanted to do but couldn't and the long advance info at online sites not being updated.

    Well, I am going to be buying this title, and if what
    Seth says is true, then one can only assume the artwork
    that is currently posted with the "1.5" on it will be
    gone.
    Singer is a great commentator, and I look forward
    listening to him discuss this film.
    Then again, I don't buy DVDs because of their good
    or bad cover art; I buy them because I like the film.
    If this DVD contains all of the features of the first
    release, plus DTS and an audio commentary, then it is
    on my "must buy" list.
    While it is flogging a dead horse, 1.5 implies version
    to anyone who owns a computer. So, if there was going
    to be an extended version, then the 1.5 made sense, if
    it was, as always, a horrid idea for a title on a DVD.
    Can one imagine "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship
    of the Ring
    Version 1.78?"
    Tacky....real tacky.
    But then this falls into the catagory of crying
    over milk that was never spilled.

    I get the distinct impression that this release isn't worth the extra money. Yeah, you get a commentary, but the other additions don't seem all that spectacular. Maybe I've been spoiled by FOTR. I'm keeping my original copy. It looks and sounds great.

    Yeah, that "1.5" sounds stupid. They would have been better off calling it the Ultimate Edition or something instad of giving it a number. The original cover art looks MUCH better, as well.
