LD FAQ
Time
Thanks. What are the problems with the Definitive Collection? I know of the Leia welding mishap, but my copy must be a later one, b/c it has the scene intact. What are other problems? i don't know of anything else. I also must have a slightly older player b/c it certainly won't freeze frame on CLV discs. But even the newer players that will; will they step frame & perform all the slow-mo features, etc. on CLV discs, or do you still need CAV for that? Sorry for all the noob questions, but all the LD stuff is still fairly new to me. I was at least smart enough to read up to know that i wanted CAV format & a double sided player though.

Oh, & i've seen mention of extras on the Faces discs. what are they? i would imagine they might be trailers or that interview with lucas that was on the vhs faces release? certainly nothing as extensive as on the definitive set though?

LD FAQ

Well, i searched the boards & didn't find anything like this, so i thought i'd join the forum & start one.

I've noticed in several threads people mention the various laserdisc releases and the pros/cons to each. I personally rushed out & bought a nice LD player & the Definitive Collection LD boxset when i heard about the no OT dvd news. I've been very happy with the set (great picture for the most part, awesome bonus features, wonderful full feature CAV format, etc.), but i've seen several people comment that the "faces" version is better. Why is this? Please use this thread to discuss the good, the bad, & the ugly of each version of STAR WARS on laser, so those of us who like to have offical releases (even as supplements to fan preservations) can get the best versions out there.
