Not technically a double-dip I guess... I got the theatrical version the day it came out on HD DVD & it is a very nice looking disc. But I don't know if I like the movie enough to buy it again, even if the DC might be better. I'm on the fence right now, & would like to see a few yea or nays either way.
Luckily, I haven't picked up the original yet, so I won't have to double dip on the new version. Even so, I'm going to wait and get it in the BEST OF BLU-RAY: ACTION box set (coming out on November 6th). The set includes TROY: DIRECTOR'S CUT, ALEXANDER REVISITED, BLOOD DIAMOND and WYATT EARP. Amazon should have it for around $60, and it might be even cheaper at the Warner Bros store with a coupon.
Definitely getting either the HD or SD version of the Director's Cut. Enough good reviews of it have convinced me it will surpass the theatrical in quality as a film. Certainly this was true of Kingdom of Heaven. I'll probably sell off my copy of the theatrical cut too.
Yes. I am. I commented on this very thing in another post. I'm getting the Ultimate Collector's Edition and the HD DVD Director's Cut. I really like the blue color of the SD DVD UCE version. Btw, I got it for $22.46 with a few other HD DVDs on Warner Bros' website.

Yeah, I didn't see the original cut of Troy, but the SD review has me seriously considering the DC on either format.

I held off the HD version because by the time I got into HD 10 months ago, there were already rumblings of this version. I have the SD and am one of the few people who fucking loved this movie. I was 'Troy' a few times in theatres and have watched it a few times on disc, so this director's cut is a no brainer for me... I can't wait for Tuesday!
