    Probably scarece because it cost so damn much when it came out no one wants to part with it unless they can get a lot of $$.

    I should know. Most expensive single-movie DVD purchase I ever made. Then I had to send it back for another one because it was damaged.[​IMG]

    Only one disc and a disappointing amount of extras by today's standards. (by yesterday's as well.)

    I really wanted the director's cut and AR.

    Find a Hastings, Sam Goody, or Suncoast store in an area where not that many people live. Like in Montana or other low-populated states. I live in Bozeman, MT currently and the Hastings store out here has TONS of OOP stuff that nobody bought because they had no idea what the titles were.

    Every week through Ebay.


    Now if someone could please tell me where I might find a BRAND NEW copy of The Exorcist Limited Edition Collector's Set, I will gladly sacrifice my first born son in your reverence.

    I expect you'll see the price come down on these drastically once the unrated anamorphic one comes out from MGM. Most people kept the Criterion for the uncut version. But with the non-anamorphic transfer and very weak 2.0 audio, I doubt too many people will keep it just for the commentary.

    I'm keeping the Criterion for the video essay... which is one of my favorite special features.

    Also, the commentary is top notch and the MGM release will likely be 1.85 instead of the intended 1.66:1 that we see on the Criterion disc. Don't even get me started on the DD2.0 OSL [​IMG]

    I'm with Rob on this one. If you are lucky enough to own the Criterion version I would not advise you to sell it.

    Sorry, but compared to the LD PCM track, that DD 2.0 just plain sucks. It's horribly tinny-sounding without any dynamic range whatsover. Why they encoded that at 192 is a mystery to me.

    Yeah, but not being a flippin' LD makes up for no PCM sound. I think the DVD sounds great myself [​IMG]

    Well along with dumping the Criterion DVD, I guess I can dump my Criterion laser disc as well. Anyone takers?
