John--I never said there were 8 UE's, did I? I said there were eight parts of the movie series.
I know I'm not fully versed in all of the special permutations released for either SW or Indy. Are you? Can either of us really say these are or are not the same thing with 100% accuracy? My guess is no.
My entire point was that this was done before, but apparently we're splitting hairs now. I have no interest in that whatsoever. HP is a series. SW is a series. Indy is a series. I'm sorry if anyone didn't see the writing on the wall and assumed Warner was going to continue what they had been doing. Fact of the matter is they didn't for a reason. I'm not sorry that years after the high def format war anyone still complains DVD gets the short end of the stick or a studio may or may not suddenly stop supporting that format.
Jason, we are not talking about the HP film series here. You are talking about something enirely different than we are. We are not talking about the release of the HP film series on dvd & blu in general. We are talking about a specifically announced
series of 7 special box sets, all with a specific series of pre-announced, pre-advertised
extra documentaries, partitioned over the series. And after people bought the first six of the box sets, WB changes the game plan on the seventh and final box set. That has nothing to do with Crystal Skull
being made after VHS was dead, or the practice you are referring to to push a new format (blu ray is no longer new), or formats changing over the course of a film series. That is not what is being discussed here.
I guess, these ads should have specified that you can collect them all... except the last one.
