I believe that a single of Jurassic Park (the first movie) and a single of Back To The Future (the first movie) will be made available this year as part of the 100th Anniversary idea.
Target had the BttF set for either $14.99 or $19.99 in the third or fourth quarter last year, IIRC. I don't know if we'll see JP down that low, but if it hits $25, I'm sold.Originally Posted by MattAlbie60 /t/315806/jurassic-park-ultimate-trilogy-blu-ray-review-recommended/60#post_3907395
Wasn't it *years* before BACK TO THE FUTURE on DVD was ever offered as single releases?
I'm not holding my breath, but I'm sure I'll just break down and get this eventually when its cheap enough.
The BD of BttF came out in 2010 as a three movie set. The price drop was last year, when I picked it up. The DVD came out in 2002 (I remember that very clearly). Single discs of the BD version aren't out yet, as far as I know.Originally Posted by MattAlbie60 /t/315806/jurassic-park-ultimate-trilogy-blu-ray-review-recommended/60#post_3907424
According to Amazon, it was 2002 when that original BTTF set was released and it wasn't until 2009 until single releases were offered. So yeah, if the JP set gets cheap enough, it's mine. Screw a potential 7 year wait
I think the best part of the 3-D conversion is we will very likely see a brand new transfer, which is a no brainer before starting the expensive conversion process. This in turn would provide an improved version even for an eventual 2-D re-release. And the first transfer (IMHO) could use it.TravisR said:I just read that the first movie is getting converted to 3-D for its 20th anniversary next year so maybe they'll do single releases (or the sequels if Kevin is correct about the first one coming out this year) then as a tie-in.

I think he said it while promoting Tintin but I saw him say that he thought that Jurassic Park was the one movie of his that he thought would work as a 3D conversion so I'm sure he's involved (and while Universal can legally do what they want, I doubt they'd go ahead if he was unhappy with it). As for not making any changes to his movies, I know he's said that but I wouldn't take that as a 100% absolute. I'm sure the original version of E.T. will be available and they won't add a digital shark to Jaws or anything but I'd be surprised if the wire pulling the buoy in Jaws or the cobra reflection in Raiders Of The Lost aren't still digitally erased.Mark-P said:Am I missing something? Didn't Spielberg say a while back that he wouldn't permit any more revisions to be done on any of his films? I would think this would include 3D conversion.
Edit: I just found where Universal has officially announced it for 2013, so I guess they don't need Spielberg's blessing and probably don't care if he has any objections about it.
I don't know if I would equate a 3D version with the types of changes he said he was not going to do anymore. It doesn't change the actual content of the filmAm I missing something?

I also thought the re-mixed audio was slightly disappointing on Jurassic Park, i didn't feel it had the same slam or dynamic feel to it as the original 5.1 mix, i heard it straight away on many sequences where i felt the audio lacked the power of the original mix, thats how i felt, i know many will disagree with me, it was a good sound mix but i felt the original was great and somewhere along the line this 7.1 remix has neutered the originals powerful mix.
Major props for coming back and providing an update/correction to your earlier assessment. I could not agree more on the importance of calibration. But I'll take it one step further: video as well as audio calibration.FoxyMulder said:I now must disagree with myself, after re-calibrating my entire audio system recently i re-visited Jurassic Park, the power of the mix is back, it's dynamic again, this just goes to show the importance of calibrating your system, i made a mistake when i posted the above last year and i just want to say that in this thread, it's a fantastic sound mix.
