I swear, sometimes marketing people just need to shot, I mean, 1.5? Give me a damn break, I can't believe that stupid idea is still on the box!

Huge disappointment. Unfortunately, I already got rid of mine when they were supposedly making a real special edition (back when the rumours included a new cut and 24 deleted scenes). So, them throwing me the free movie ticket makes up for some of the pain............although they should really lose the 1.5.

Well, I said they wouldn't and they did. I was wrong, and I agree that it's stupid. I still suspect that the change might have been made too late to alter the packaging (within a reasonable cost) since we don't know when that new package was actually finished. But it makes you wonder... Doesn't make it less confusing and silly though. I think they made a serious mistake listing it as 1.5 still. Perhaps they feared confusion in regards to their earlier released press??? Or maybe it is just crappy marketing after all. To be honest, I prefer the original artwork all the way, it actually looks more special to me than this new cover.

Has anyone had any problems with the current X-MEN disc? Mine played fine--once--on my Pioneer portable, then "defaulted" to the annoying extended branching version. I've never been able to set it right. And it refuses to play at all on my new Sony multidisc player. So: Bad disc? Bad pressing? Should I get the new one and cross my fingers?

The Bits has the final cover art up. It looks a little better... -g

I wonder how many people will think that it has a mono soundtrack with five LFE channels?

But the cover still shows "1.5" on the cover. Just a dumb thing to have on there. Mark
Paramount, please release DRAGONSLAYER on Blu-ray
Vermithrax Pejorative deserves to be seen in high-def.

Thanks, Dave. Honestly, I was surprised no one mentioned it sooner.

Just my $.02 I think the current X-men package is really slick-looking, very classy and suits the "color scheme" of the movie. I guess they had to change the package a lot to differentiate it. I can't imagine a new transfer looking much better, least on my gear, it looks great. The LFE channel could use a slight enhancement, a little soft. In the cover picture they got the Canadian and U.S. prices backwards...but Cdn$18 would be a good deal!

That final grey cover art looks so much better than the horrible red one, with a better pose from Wolverine as well. Shame they didn't drop the hokey '1.5' from the cover, but because the original Xmen dvd was touted as a special edition I guess they had to clearly differentiate the two SE's. Still, I'm looking forward to this one!

Yea, this is more like a "X-Men 1.0.1" than a 1.5!
Hi, how's it going?
Posted December 23 2002 - 06:06 AM
New X-Men version 8.0...the easy just got easier! "Welcome! You got Mutant Powers!" Seriously, the cover is much better now.
Posted January 04 2003 - 02:03 PM
Okay, I'm confused. Did they or did they not drop the 1.5?
Posted January 04 2003 - 05:32 PM
This is really awful. What a terrible cover. The average consumer won't know what to make of it. The should have called it "X Men Revisited" or something a bit less misleading.

if memory serves me right...the original disc had the mutant watch fox special, and the spiderman joke easter egg...those were exclusive to it. i have seen the original repackaged in a keep case in a two pack with another movie and a box set with both x men films and daredevil director's cut.
