PostSubject: Blade Runner 30th Anniversary Collector's Edition   Thu Jun 21, 2012 7:18 pm

So looks like they are re-releasing this movie on blu-ray again. I already have the briefcase five disc collector's edition that came out in 2007. However, I only have it on DVD.
I was wondering if this version was worth a double dip. I know it hasn't been released yet but I was wondering if any of you knew something about it. It almost looks like the same thing. I wonder...

Think I heard it's essentially the same thing but sans Workprint and plus some new extras.

The Blu-ray transfers are fukn deelishus assuming they use the same ones. I got the regular 5-disc Blu-ray box for twelve bucks some years ago. :o

WTF?

I wish I got ahold of that deal.

If there's one movie worth double dipping for the Blu-Ray, it's Blade Runner. But personally I'd just go with the stand alone version of the final cut on BR.

Only 7.30 right now, tempting, but I still want to wait for word on this set. Tongue

Is the Workprint worth picking up the old set for?

What does the box mean by "Ultraviolet"? Is that a new format or something?

I watched a couple of minutes of it. It's a bit rough looking. I guess if you're a completionist who wants to see all 5 versions then the set is worth it. I've still only watched the Final Cut multiple times and none of the other versions.

It's just like a version of the movie on a cloud drive. I think it's replacing digital copies.

I have yet to watch the Workprint, lol. I'm interested to, but whenever I wanna watch the movie, I just wanna see the Final Cut. It's even better than the early '90s Director's Cut, so yeah.

I saw part of the original theatrical cut on TV once and the voiceover narration killed it for me.

Reconsidering my stance on the subject, this one comes out tomorrow too:



Looks to be the same thing but better and cheaper. This also says it has the theatrical, international, director and workprint version.

Depends on what you consider better.

The Blu-Ray book has all five cuts of the film and all digital supplements from the 30th Anniversary set; however, the Blu-ray Book is only thirty-six pages long - as opposed to seventy-two pages - and loses the DVD and UV copies as well as the spinner replica and Lenticular hologram.


I personally can do without the extra trinkets, UV and DVD copies. Only downside is the shorter book but I can live with that.

So not possible to truly be better, since it doesn't actually add anything. Although, subtracting DVD and UV copies is definitely a plus, as well as the price of course. I may actually want that version now.

Any word on the transfers? Same or different as the last Blu-Ray versions?

The big one is 42.99 at Frys if that helps sway your interest http://www.frys.com/product/7285833

I read that they are the same transfer but the workprint is in DTS HD MA

I can't imagine them changing the transfers since those were already spot-on perfect. Didn't know about adding lossless audio on the workprint, though. I might almost feel left out if I had an HD receiver and the ears to hear higher than 192kbps.

No UV and DVD bullshit--plus the cheaper price--definitely makes that book set the better buy.
