At the moment the cost of getting there from the UK is putting me off a little - is it cheap to eat, drink and get a decent hotel room - was thinking of visiting Sao Paulo or Rio.


Any help most appreciated


Depends on the game. If you want to see an international match, it's about R$80 (cheapest seat) to R$120, that's US$28.60 to US$42.90, maybe more depending on where the game is or where you're seated - last time I went to see a game, it was Brazil vs Bolivia, and I payed R$80 to the cheapest seat. If you want to see a regular soccer championship game, it depends on where you're going to be seated. A ticket in the upper seats is usually around 10 to 15 (3.6 to 5.4 dollars), but I really DONT recomend getting those seats, as they are usually used by hardcore, hooligan like fans. I'd recomend a lower, closer to the field seat, which would cost something around... I dont know, maybe R$50 or R$60, about 18 to 20 dollars. So, avoid at all costs seating in the so called "GERAL" seats. Do not buy the ticket on the streets, buy it on the authorized selling points. Usually the traveling agencies buy tickets to tourists and take them to the stadiums, but I don't know how much they charge.

Yes, things are quite cheap over here. In Rio, things a little bit more expensive as it's a touristic city. I'm not so sure what you could do over here in Sao Paulo, as it's NOT a touristic city at all, so I'd recomend coming to Brazil only if you are one of those travellers who enjoy getting lost, doing stuff all by themselves, and visiting weird, different places, and enjoy traveling around with nothing more than a backpack and a tourist guide in an adventurous kinda way. If you are the "tour bus guide"kinda tourist, you'll probably not enjoy it.




Cheers for the info, m8 - will be talking it over with the missus very shortly - see just how much she wants to come with me... lol

Tim - sweet covers, keep up the work on them m8, they'll go down here very well.


soundtrackmaster - not sen those covers before - a bit similar to Scara's covers (in style, IIRC) - and it's not often someone puts a UK BBFC rating logo on fan-made covers these days. Very nice, though.

DanB - just found out that if you order online you only get the normal silver boxset. Only going to the store itself will get you the black boxset - which may prove a little difficult/expensive unless you've managed to find somewhere in Oz that does 'em too...

Once again - great work MeBeJedi

I look forward to the day when your letterbox and anamorphic versions of the OT join my TR47 Letterbox and Dr Gonzo Anamorphic versions on my dvd shelf.

It should make the designers who do great work on the DVD covers here fret a little though - perhaps you'll all have individual logos that can be copied and pasted onto the covers- to identify the different sets?

OT on DVD then what?
Time
Like INv8r_ZIM said, until home technology becomes more advanced so that it passes the quality of the 70mm prints then the quest to get the OOT on dvd - or whatever format is the norm in the future - lives on.

final cut?

Hi & Welcome grand poobar kenobi

It's likely that GL will release yet another 'vision' of how his trilogy was 'supposed to look like in 77, 80 & 83'. When will this be? Possibly in 2007 - the 30th Anniversary of SW?

Maybe some time after he's finished Episode III we'll get an orignial trilogy and prequel trilogy combined box set - and don't be too surprised if there are changes to the prequels either...

At the cinema? Certainly wouldn't put it past him - another last chance to see the films as they are before he makes a catalogue of new changes to them as he did for the 97SE's...

Then there's blu-ray or hd-dvd or whatever the next new format is going to be - all new chances for GL to make a few more $$$

I think there were a couple of comparison shots between the tr47 set and Farsight set - could well do with the original anamorphic (Dr Gonzo) set up too anda few a screenshots from all 3 versions for a good comparison.

I thought that too at first, but HMV state they have some sort of exclusive deal in which they are selling the Gold Covers in widescreen as some sort of limited edition.

very interesting set this anamorphic Farsight set seems.

I hope someone does a review in the 'OT Bootleg Review' thread when they have all 3 films...

Digital Bits Review

I was under the impression that Digital Lowry were given the job of restoring the disentigrating original prints BEFORE they started making changes for the 97 Special Editions, and that Lowry himself stated that GL has a few digital masters of the original version.

They got a in a huff because someone asked about where the original versions of the film were? I wonder if all the GL top hierarchy feel the same way regarding the original versions...
