Title: R1 - Any difference between the 2003 and 2005 releases?
Post by: mezcal on October 22, 2007, 01:22:25 PM
I just picked up the last copy in best buy and it was the 2003 special edition, is there anything different with the slimlime 2005 release (beyond the packaging), does it make a difference which i have?
thanks

well the canadian dollar may be at par with the U.S, but our deals aren't.

As far as i'm aware, the 2003 release was in a double plastic case, while the 2005 reissue is in slimline cardboard, i'm hoping there weren't any 'improvements' done on the movie in these 2 years

  That new packaging is just the old single-disc DVD with a new box design.  It does look nice though, but that only has the trailer I believe.  The 2003 two-disc had extras.  If that's what we're talking about... :)

I don't think there was a DVD of this until the 2-disc set was released, at least in R1.

  My bad, I confused OUATITW with GBU.  I have no idea if there's a difference then. :)

I 'thought' i'd seen the double box dvd set in the slimline paper box, but this may have been an overseas set (german) when i bought the 'my name is nobody' 4 disc set.

For any canucks out there, bestbuy has OUATIA for $6.99 in this weeks flyer, well recommended!

I bought OUATIA for $15 a few months ago in Montréal, down from $30 last year.
Now you say it is $6.99...pretty soon they'll give it away ;)
A note to Ennio's fans: The mission has been reduced recently, also.
