Joseph, the hesitancy is about money and how much some of us have to spare. I had the tapes, then the laserdiscs (that bunch for all 5 was over 300.00), then bought the first Planet of the Apes set on dvd. I guess we all have to consider how important the films are to us. In the last few years with all the special editions coming out, I have really cut back on double/triple dipping. I look at each title individually, and consider how long since I have watched it, and is it worth it, or worth a wait. I am saving up for the new Sony projector with the full high-def resolution that came out this year (the one I have now is without an HDMI input, so I'd have to watch down-rez movies) . The cheapest I can find the projector is about 7500.00, so Planet of the Apes isn't in the cards right now. My other problem with buying these again and spending more is the lack of good sound. The first movie and Escape and Conquest, as I mentioned earlier, were GREAT soundtracks in the theaters. They were full stereo with high-fidelity. From what I have heard, not much effort was put into the soundtracks. The first movie should be stunning where it's really a lower fidelity. I purchased the soundtrack from Film Score Monthly, and they do indeed have the music masters, the cd sounds like it was recorded today. So Fox could at least, with a set like this, remixed the music for better fidelity, considering this musical score is one of Jerry Goldsmith's fans favorites. Escape and Conquest (especially Conquest) blew me away in theaters in their first-release years!. Had they remastered the soundtracks properly, I'd have this on my shelf already.
