Well to be honest OAR and anamorphic and Paramount have my money already, no matter how much I'd grumble about a lack of extras.
Same,here they could release the movie right away and then release the second disc of extras for abotu 10 bucks later.But as long the they're done right I'll gladly wait.
Martin, please know that we all appreciate your truthfulness on this. It's sometimes difficult to wait because we LOVE these films... but ultimately, most of the members here would rather wait than plunk down for a poor product.
I totally agree with that statement,as well as the props for Next Gen, & hopefully DS9
You know...the speculation on Indy 4 has heated up somewhat. I wouldn't be surprised if this is tied into that somehow.
It should have been done 4 years ago!!!!!!!!
For one thing the market penetration for DVD was nowhere near what it needed to be for a film of this calibur. We only reached that level in the last year. Sure Raiders would have sold players, but they'd have to push a rerelease in order to get the sales that the current market would provide.
Also, four years ago there would not be a guarantee that Paramount would provide even an anamorphic transfer, much less special features. I'm personally quite happy this was not done 4 years ago.
