Oh, I'm conflicted.

First of all I have the trilogy on DVD. I actually have the box set with the incorrectly cropped Part 2, which I didn't exchange because I thought it would be collectible. It's got a lot of special features and I think most if not all of them move over to the Blu-ray.

I love this film and I refer to it frequently in conversation. But is a film made in 1985 worth purchasing in HD? I bought the Trek 2/3/4 box set. The restoration is excellent but if anything the higher quality makes the effects look worse.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

Hmmm... This would be the third time I am purchasing the set.

(Purchased the first release on VHS, that came with the 4th bonus tape).
Then purchased the DVD Boxed Set.

Not sure if I will go for the Blu-Ray... depends on the price.

I'm not a huge fan of this series, but since they're among my wife's favorites, I'm sure it'll be a day one purchase for me.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

This could be one of those "Either get on day one sales or wait a year for the price to drop" purchases. :)

Looks like a decent amount of good special features new to the BD release -- will likely be picking this up as a result. :up:
