    Man...I didn't read your post all the way through before I went to davidlynch.com. I didn't realize that they finally had I Don't Know Jack too!

    What a day.

    75 shipped is so expensive, but I'm sure it will be worth it.

    Thanks for the heads up. Despite the outrageous prices, I gotta have Eraserhead! I just bought it, and the short films DVD. Don't Know Jack was tempting, but maybe some other time.

    Anyone know what the "plus extras" are?

    $75 shipped?? Really!??

    Count me out... unless it ships with a bar of gold.

    I don't suppose it'll be available for rental anywhere... I guess I really didn't want to see Eraserhead after all. [​IMG]

    He's saying I Don't Know Jack and Eraserhead are $75 shipped, I believe.

    Ike's right, I was talking about my entire order. Eraserhead alone is 40 + shipping.

    ...still expensive, but if you love the movie then it's pretty insignificant.

    I cant find any yardwork or houspainting to do while waiting for the site to load.
    At $49 total for ERASERHEAD, I would have to know about the transfer and extras- otherwise, Ill keep my quite adequate WS LD...

    Umm, I would not recommend buying Eraserhead sight unseen to ANYONE. It's very much a "love it or hate it" kind of movie. Definitely rent it first.... on VHS if you have to.

    If you already own the LD, than I wouldn't worry about the DVD until reviews come out. I on the other hand, don't own the LD, so the DVD is a reletively sound purchase.

    Dave,
    Of course it is all a matter of perspective...that's whay I said if you love the movie.

    There are no details listed regarding aspect ratio. Does anyone know if it's full-frame or if it's anamorphic widescreen? (There seemed to be some debate on this issue a number of months ago.)

    I'm buying it sight unseen cause I love David Lynch. $48 is a lot, but Lynch is getting to do it his way. Bring it on!

    Looks like I am going to have to wait 5 years to buy a copy.

    What a joke![​IMG]

    It least it gives me time to save up for a copy. [​IMG]

    $50 is a bit steep, but seeing as how Lynch worked on this personally... it's a bargain.

    Now to wait for Wild at Heart!

    $40 plus? I want the film...but sorry, that's a bit steep even for, say, a Criterion single disc. I'll wait.
