    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp After originally scheduled to hit stores this November, the release date for the four-disc boxed set has been pushed up to October 21st... so it's less than a month to go! :D

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp I've already pre-ordered the Widescreen version. :cool:

    I'll buy the next boxed set. The one that'll come out next year with all the Indiana Jones movies on it.

    Why spend all that money on one good film?

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp According to the link, more than three hours of brand-new special features and newly-produced documentaries. :cool:

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp If you're referring to the upcoming Indiana Jones 4 (although I'm sure the movie will actually have a different title), then you'll have to wait a while longer since the movie is only scheduled to hit theaters in 2005. :)

    And they'll follow it up with another box set.

    George Spielberg is all about raping their fanbase out of every single penny they have. It's amazing that people put up with their shit so much.

    I assume you're referring to the first, but I actually liked the third film quite a bit.

    The second I can do without.

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp If you mean how Lucas handles the Star Wars franchise, you're probably right. But with the Indiana Jones franchise?!?

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp The Widescreen version VHS tapes were only released a decade (1999) after the third film hit theaters (1989)... an Indiana Jones videogame seems to only be released once every 3-4 years... and it took this long for the movies to finally come to DVD? :eek: And honestly, how much Indiana Jones merchandise have you seen in stores in the last decade or so?

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp If anything, we should be pissed off at Lucas for not milking the IJ franchise nearly enough! :p

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp That's most likely next on George Lucas' list (along with directing Star Wars Episode III, of course).

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp The first and third films are awesome!

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp The second film is pretty good, I suppose... in an interview with director Steven Spielberg, he also mentions that the second film was his least favorite of the three. :eek:

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp In any case, as the second film took place a year before the first film, what happend to Short Round by the time of Raiders of the Lost Ark? :confused:

    Most likely he was sold into the Southeast Asian sex slave market. There's no way Lucas was keeping him around after what Indy tried.

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp For those who are still unsure whether to get the Widescreen version or the Pan-and-Scan version, here is the difference:

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp I'm definitely getting the Widescreen version!

    Why would any human being ever buy any movie on DVD in Full-Screen format?

    I never understood that.

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp I completely agree with you... which makes me wonder why they even make DVD's in the Full-Screen format in the first place. :confused:

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp And apparently can't afford anything bigger than a 5" screen TV. :D

    Does anybody have the Die Hard DVD boxed set? If not, there's a good feature on the bonus disc with the first one that shows the difference. The director talks you through why widescreen is better, and shows the scenes before and after .... it's kind of a neat thing.
    The should have that feature playing before every fullscreen movie.

    Some good news is that Blockbuster now only orders widescreen DVD's (IIRC) ... so hopefully the yokels will be coming around sooner than later.

    i don't understand-why is full screen so bad?
    is it atmosphere or something?
    less quality?

    I'm not sure that's true. There have been several petitions that I'm aware of to ask Blockbuster to stock Widescreen, because there were rumors going around that Blockbuster was planning to only stock pan and scan full screen
