    Hello fellow DVD nuts! I just wanted to welcome all of you into this little thread to imagine a moment with me. Take a minute to do this and you may find it quite enjoyable. [​IMG]


    Imagine the day when you can sit back and look at your DVD collection and see the full Lord of the Rings trilogy Extended Edition sets. [​IMG] Then you pan your eyes over only to see the recently released Star Wars Episodes 4-6 Trilogy in anamorphic widescreen with DTS surround sound added for the home release! [​IMG] Lastly, you look over a little further and eye your new Indiana Jones Tilogy once again in anamorphic widescreen with DTS surround sound. [​IMG] What a wonderful moment that will be. [​IMG]


    Let's hear your predictions for when that day will be. [​IMG] Mid 2006? 2007? The sooner the better! [​IMG]

    For your sake, I hope the day comes soon. Of course, there are a few of us (not many, but a few) who could care less if that day never comes.

    I'd settle for Three Colors: Blue, White and Red and Miller's Crossing on DVD.

    A briliant day it will be indeed! I frequently do that only with the LOTR trilogy. It will undoubtedly be the crowning achievement of my collection. Indy and Star Wars aren't far behind. I can picture a couple marathon Sundays already. As for when, I don't even care to guess because it only build the anticipation.

    Well, I can already sit back and see my collection of Star Wars (Han shoots first!) and Indiana Jones, thanks to the power of laserdisc. You know, after 15 minutes it doesn't matter if it's anamorphic or not, or if the sound is DPLII or DTS 6.1. What matters is that I'm watching it. LOTR? Well, that seems to be coming along just fine...

    No, that will never happen. The Indy trilogy will be sorted under "I", LOTR under "L" and SW under "S". That means I will first see Indy, then LOTR and finally SW. [​IMG]

    By 2006-2007, it won't matter if these titles are available on DVD. By then, everyone will be complaining that Lucas and Spielberg are dragging their feet because they won't release the aforementioned titles in HD.

    I have a feeling HD-DVD is a little further away than you might think. [​IMG]

    I already imagined the day when I had "Can't Stop the Music" on my shelf in anamorphic widescreen, and that day has already come! Just need "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" now (with the Bee Gees and Peter Frampton!)

    I'm pretty confident they'll have a DTS track for each of the original films when they finally hit DVD. I think most people would agree with me.

    My only fear is that they wait so long to release these jems that HD-DVD comes out and they decide to wait until they can do nice HD transfers before releasing them at all.
