    I've found these Fox discs to be some of the better SE's (OK with the expection maybe of Sound of Music)-- and have decided that I'd like to own them all. Is there a list somewhere of which titles have gotten the 5 star treatment?

    I think I have almost all of them (and the ones I don't have I have accounted for, and planned to purchase)--but wondered if this is a complete list:

    Have:
    The Sound of Music
    The French Connection
    Independence Day
    The Abyss
    Die Hard

    Need:
    M*A*S*H
    Cleopatra
    Speed

    Are these 8 titles the only 5 star titles?

    Aren't some of these going out of print soon?
    Sound of Music is,
    don't know about the others.

    Vince, I think you've listed 'em all, except I don't think The Abyss is part of the list. I think that one pre-dated the Five Star moniker (as evidenced by its non-anamorphic transfer).

    Yeah, The Abyss is a 2-discer but it doesn't bear the 5-Star label. There really aren't too many of these things out there.

    Gotcha. I guess maybe I was thrown off by the silver case (looks like Amazon.com was as well, they list it as a 5 star title).

    Isn't the original 2 disk Patton one of these?

    POTA will be a 5 star if rumors hold
    Patton is not a 5star, but I wouldn't be suprised if the 2disc was reissued with some more extras as such at some point

    Wasn't True Lies supposed to be release as a 5 star or did that die with 9-11?

    Unless it's in a silver chromium (rainbow reflective) covered box with a big honking "5-star Collection" at the top it's not a 5-star

    Isn't Moulin Rouge officially a 5 Star Edition?

    Paul, see what Jeff said. Moulin Rouge is not a 5-star. There is a certain criteria for a title to get the 5 Star treatment, huge box office success (Die Hard, Speed, ID4...etc) and or classic back catalogue (Sound of Music..etc).

    Like Jeff said, if it were 5 Star, it would be blatantly obvious. The banner, the style of the cover, the dual silver alpha case....etc.

    I think the coming soon titles are:

    Planet of the Apes
    True Lies
    Alien (or was it Aliens?)

    Oddly, 2 out of the 3 were released in boxed sets already.
