    O.K., I did a search on this and read quite a bit, but still didn't come up with a conclusive answer to what I want to know.
    So it seems that Universal has either screwed up or is messing with the buyer in releasing this latest collection. I understand that; what I don't know is this: is there more content on the original 2 disc release of The Mummy? Or, put another way - would I be missing anything from the original release if I bought The MummyCollection instead?
    As stated, I have read extensively MANY threads about this topic the past hour or so on this forum, so I don't really care to debate whether The Mummy Returns is good or not, I just want the 'best bang for the buck'.
    Many thanks. [​IMG]

    BUT on the original 1 disc Mummy, there is an Easter Egg to listen to the original score (may have been removed for this release though, I think Universal may have been sued over it).
