    What the hell? I was planning on getting the Ultimate Die Hard 3 Movie box, but I saw on DVDpricesearch today that Fox is releasing another Die Hard 2 DVD Special Edition set. I'm confused, wasn't the 5 star version of this already 2 discs, hence, a special edition? Any word if this will include new materials?

    Amazon shows it as having the same stuff as the 5-Star. Since this is being labeled as "Die Hard (Double Digipack)" I assume it's just a repackaging.

    I'm pretty sure this is part of Fox's effort to repackage 5-Star titles since they've stopped using that label for special editions.

    In the Die Hard box-set, only Die Hard 1 was labled as a "5 Star".

    I saw this at Borders this weekend along with the re-release of the Fight Club 2-disc SE. Both in digipack style packaging. The Fight Club looks like the old one, but instead of the sturdy outer case the old one had it's more liek the recent AByss, POTA, etc.

    Was there ever an official reason why "Die Hard With A Vengeance" looks so crappy?

    The new Die Hard is just a re-packaged version of the 5-star edition. Fox discontinued the 5-Star line, and is now re-releasing them in digipak cases. Buy the box, its a great set.

    I have a hunch Die Hard 3 was never taken from a true 1080p HD master, or at least a poor one.
