I bought a DVD player pretty much when they first came out ($500 for a player that didn't do anything special), so I've ended up spending a ton of money on double-dipping. What are the titles you've double-dipped on? Off the top of my head, here are most of my titles:

Armageddon
Army of Darkness
Born on the Fourth of July
Die Hard
Die Hard 2
Die Hard With a Vengeance
A Few Good Men
Field of Dreams
The Fugitive
Goodfellas
Interview With the Vampire
Jerry Maguire
JFK
The Karate Kid
Lethal Weapon
Lethal Weapon 2
Lethal Weapon 3
The Matrix
The Mummy
My Best Friend's Wedding
Notting Hill
Pulp Fiction
Rain Man
The Rock
Seven
Shakespeare In Love
The Shawshank Redemption
Speed
The Terminator
Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Tombstone
Top Gun
True Romance
The Usual Suspects
X-Men
Young Guns

The ones I can immediately think of are:

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
Dobermann
Donnie Darko
Hellraiser
Picnic at Hanging Rock

all from single disc to multiple disc editions.

I'm sure there are many others, as I seem to spend a lot of time re-buying the same movies. I guess when you have films you really like, significantly improved versions are always going to be tempting...

Only one, Baraka.

For double-dipping, I add the price of the new edition to the old one and see if it's worth it. I still have the old versions of:

Platoon
Se7en
Desperado
Alien series
Army of Darkness
Boondock Saints
Clear and Present Danger

and a bunch of others.

Too many to remember them all unfortunately :(

Apollo 13
Leon/The Professional
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
Alien - Alien 4
Cube
Die Hard set
Donnie Darko
Enigma
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Running Out Of Time
Night of the Living Dead
X-Men
a TON of Jackie Chan movies (mainly from buying the R0/R1 version trying to find the most complete cut and then repurchasing some of the R2/HKL versions)
a few Chow Yun-Fat movies for the same reason as the JC movies
a few Kurosawa DVDs that I've replaced the R0 version w/ the Criterion version


One I'm tempted to double dip on are:
Silverado
the original Twilight Zone

MovieExchange
04-06-05, 07:26 AM
Clerks
Sixth Sense
X-Men

Not bad for a collection of about 450 titles, I guess.

Dunno if it counts, but I do have 3 versions of Night of the Living Dead. The 30th Anniversary edition, the colorized original, and the Savini remake.

So far Army of Darkness and Evil Dead are the only ones I have multiple versions of.

slowcloud
04-06-05, 07:36 AM
Memento (regular and ltd. ed.)
Mulholland Drive (U.S. DTS version and Korean with extras and chapter stops)
2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM version with extras and barebones Warner version with better picture)

If a newer, improved version comes out, I most often than not sell the older version.

<b>A Woman is a Woman</b> - Fox Lorber & Criterion

Not a whole lot here, surprisingly..

Clerks
Predator
Predator 2
Spaceballs (upcoming)
Silence of the Lambs (CC & MGM)
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
Robocop (CC & Trilogy)
the old South Park discs (before there were season sets)

These I don't really count because they're different cuts
Donnie Darko
Daredevil
LOTR trilogy

I think that's about it.

John Wayne's Lonestar 'B' Westerns.

First, picked up the Madacy ones (before I knew the kind of junk they put out). Next, I got the Goodtimes box sets. Most were in watchable condition, a few in excellent condition, and a couple were just plain lousy. After that, I got a few Front Row and Delta ones, to upgrade the bad ones from the Goodtimes boxes (which didn't work). Then last year, Brentwood puts out a 20-pack box, including all 16 of the Lone Star films. Turned out to be on par with the Madacy ones, and they promptly hit the trash can. Last month Sam's Club had the impressive looking 'Essential John Wayne' box for around twenty bucks, so I took a chance on that. Like the Goodtimes box, most are in watchable condition, a few are excellent, and a couple are below average.

So yes, I've double-dipped many, many times on these films....trying to get the best quality available. I even picked up the Sony / Columbia Tri-Star version, and while the image quality is in good shape, there is a cheesy artificial soundtrack, dubbed over the film. My search continues on to this day!

double-dip (for the purposes of this thread) simply means that a person purchased a title more than once.... and not necessarily a deceptive practice by a studio to maximize sales.

I bought the original Tomorrow Never Dies, then upgraded to the SE, then bought the box set, so that's a triple-dip. And if MGM/UA re-releases their Bond titles with remastering and so forth, that could be a potential quadruple-dip. :(

Some because they "tricked" me, and some that I knew were eventually coming out with better versions but I didn't want to wait (The Princess Bride and Pocahontas). Notting Hill - there was no good reason for me to upgrade, and I learned my lesson. I have to really want the extra content/improved picture to upgrade. I'm still planning on upgrading Alice in Wonderland - the video on the two disc set is MUCH improved over the gold edition I currently own.

i've been pretty good about double-dipping

I did a double on the Matrix Movies
bought them individually and then got the 10-DVD set with the statue

I did another double on Lord of the Rings
bought them individually and then got the gift set with the statue and extended versions

and that's about it

God, I don't even want to think about it. Several.

A worse thread to think about would be how many movies did I buy and never get around to watching at all and then finally trading them. I shudder to think how much money I have wasted on unwatched (or just watched once) dvds since I bought my first player back in '99.

I usually have a good eye for getting the best possible edition the first time around, but even I have to admit I end up double-dipping every once in awhile.

Memento -> Limited Edition
The Patriot -> Superbit Deluxe
Speed -> Five-Star

...and I plan on making a few more double-dips before everything's said and done.

I've double-dipped many many times, but as far as I can remember, only one triple-dip so far:
Amityville II The Possession
(Italian release, old UK release and now the R1 release)

Saving Private Ryan - had the original DD version, got the DTS version, then sold both to get the World War II Collection when Costco had it cheap.

A Bug's Life - Upgraded to the new Collector's Edition when Costco had it cheap.

From Russia With Love (I think, some James Bond one) - Had an individual copy, then found a used set and sold the one in the set.

I don't double dip; I upgrade.-wink-

I'm unsure as to how many I've upgraded.

Nothing that I can recall. I don't play that game and have been lucky up to this point. I'd rather spend my money on something I don't already have. I'm not saying it will never happen, but it hasn't yet (~400 titles).

Unless you count movies that have been replaced because of box sets (for example, I already had Psycho and got another copy when I bought the big Hitchcock box set). I wouldn't call that a double dip personally.

I am happy to say that i have and never will double dip for a bloody DVD.It is such a scam by movie studios to get money from people. I just check the net and make sure that i never have to double dip for a movie. In some cases i have regretted not waiting a little bit longer, but for every time that happens there are 10 Carlito's Way that get re-released and are basically the same version as before.

Lord help me, I've actually triple-dipped on friggin' PRETTY WOMAN. If that isn't a sign that we had best decide on an HD format soon, I don't know what is.

I think the question should be what haven't I double dipped on :(

I get pretty bent out of shape about it but I double dip and yes sometime triple dip often the only one I can think of where I knew it was going to happen and it didn't bother me was the LOTR --> LOTR Extended Double dip

I've purchased "xxx of the Dead" countless times as well as the "Evil dead" movies, hell honestly I'm not going to name them off.

Me too! I don't believe in repurchasing the same movies perpetually every time a new edition is released, just for a few more extra features. It's only a marketing ploy from the studios to sell more product.
