    Indy, why is the floor crunchy?

    Looking forward to the Indy box. Plus, the price is great for a 3-film set with cleaned up video.

    To be fair, Paramount has nothing to do with the production of these discs, it's all Lucasfilm, who also controls when and how they are released

    Okay, I've never had a chance to do this in a situation where a definitive answer could be given, so humor me and let my dream become a reality:

    Hey, Mr. Blythe, when are the Indiana Jones films going to be released on DVD? Don't be evasive now, or I might have to start a petition. I won't settle for one of those "be patient" answers either, I'm playing hardball this time. I'm gonna hold my breath until I get a solid release date. [​IMG]

    Regards (and thanks),

    I also thank Paramount for bringing out the 3 Indy movies on DVD on Nov 04 . I have been waiting for these movies to come onto DVD for years.

    November can't come sooner for me, I'm sure they are going to look great!

    I just hate the way the covers have butchered the original poster artwork, and I hate hate hate the way they renamed "Raiders of the Lost Ark" to "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark"!!

    Other then that...can't wait!

    Yes thank you Paramount!!! Not only will the films be released but that fact that Lowry Digital is doing the video restoration and all released at the same time mixed to 5.1 is killer!! Add to that the price (street $50) is right too!!!

    Mr. Blythe,

    Paramount started a great new trend with the release of your first DTS titles. They sound fantastic so far! Thank you!

    Why not put DTS and DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 on DVDs from now on, not just sporadically? The remixed Indy Trilogy would have been great in DTS, IMHO. One of the great franchises in movie history (Raiders and Temple of Doom rank among my all time favorite movies) deserves the best it can get. You could earn Brownie Points with Spielberg too.

    Will all the full length documentaries that were made during the shooting of Raiders, Temple of Doom, and Last Crusade be included in their uncut forms on this boxed set? If you added one more disc you could place just those already completed specials together. You'd rank this set up there with Fox's upcoming Alien Set and New Line's The Lord of the Rings Director's Cut Sets by including carefully mastered DTS (or fully remixed DTS-ES Discrete 6.1) and loads of quality extras.

    Just some suggestions.

    Dan
