Perhaps why we didn’t deem to buy Batman Begins yet.

    BLAST THEM! well at least i waited for batman. not the new one, but the original 1989 one with Michael Keaton. i have put off buying this movie since it’s release on DVD only because i knew the day i got it that there would be a special edition released the following tuesday.

    this kind of thing really does piss me off. i would rather wait 9 months to have a great dvd, than 6 months for a good one then 3 more for a great one and then have to debate on whether or not to get it…perhaps i should put my copy on ebay now before everyone finds out about the new version.

    On December 6, 2005, Fox Home Entertainment will release the original Star Wars Trilogy on DVD in a new limited edition three-disc set. The collection, which arrives in stores a little over a month after the release of Star Wars Episode III – The Revenge of the Sith, will feature new artwork, modest bonus features and a handful of Easter Eggs on each disc. The versions included in this set are from the 1997 re-release, although no information is yet available about whether the films will feature the revisions made at that time, or simply contain the same (additional) revisions and changes made for the 2004 release of the trilogy on DVD. The set will be packaged in a cardboard slipcase, display the formatting of the films – either widescreen of full-frame – and retail for the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $49.99

    SEE! why do they do this?

    Peter Jackson-itis?

    Mental insanity?

    Money-grubbing greediness?

    Who knows.

    Good for you waiting on Batman. JamesT, who wore it out on VHS, also swore that someday they’d release a good DVD edition, so he didn’t drop the dough on the crappy DVD edition. I, however, as a disciple of Columbia House, managed to get it as a freebie once, so we do own the crappy current version.

    AND, there was a sticker on the shelf at Best Buy… or rather 3 stickers for Batman Begins: Fullscreen, Widescreen, and Special. There were only two versions of the DVD, however, and no salesperson could solve the mystery for us. That’s the main reason we didn’t buy it on the spot… blatant in-you-face “if you buy this crap you’ll be sorry because we already have a sticker for the cool version on the shelf” awareness.

    The studios want to see how many times (and how much) you will pay for the same movie: Opening night, rental, buy the DVD, buy the special edition DVD, buy the collector’s edition boxed set, etc.

    If you aren’t careful, they will sell you the same movie 5 times!
