Originally posted by: Mike OTo be fair, The Abyss and Brazil are both non-anamorphic LD transfers, like what we're getting with the new SW discs. Brazil will, however, be released in September with a new transfer. Fox has yet to get off their asses and put out a better edition of the Abyss though. They've been peddling and rereleasing the same non-anamorphic disc for the past few years. The only edition of Blade Runner available on DVD is the director's cut in a lousy LD transfer. This should be rectified next year though.

Yeah I thought it was really sneaky of them to make no mention on the 2004 boxed set, that they were the Special Editions (or this week's version of the Special Editions, anyway).
What, you mean you wanted a high-quality choice between both versions? Like the DVDs of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
, Alien 3
, Vanishing Point
, Alien Resurrection
, The Abyss
, Terminator 2: Judgment Day
, E.T. The Extraterrestrial
, Apocalypse Now
, Blade Runner
, and The Leopard
, to name a few DVDs? Is that what you mean?
