You need to be careful as to the fact that either oop or current release is 2-Disc or not. If it IS 2-Disc, you don't have to worry, but beware of the single.
My two cents...

I think the oop Fight Club had a little nicer and sturdier packaging, but that's about it.

I'm curious as to the status of the audio tracks on "The Abyss." When Fox deleted the original two-disc in favor of the single disc, didn't they basically release the Canadian version, which dropped the English 5.1 track in favor of a French 5.1 track and an English Dolby Pro-Logic track?

Assuming I'm not crazy, did Fox correct this when they rereleased the two-disc version in the new Digipak?

There are two seperate releases but came out the exact same time in regards to the single disc edition. Look on the backs of ALL the DVD's you find to differentiate the different, but similar, fronts of the case. Only on the backs you'll be able to tell which release is which.

I read your post a couple of times and, like most of your posts, can't quite tell what you're trying to say. But in the case of "The Abyss," the packaging was mislabeled, so reading the back doesn't help.

You got a problem with the way I talk? Do I amuse you? Do you think I'm an idiot?

Bah... I wouldn't give a flyin' a' if ya did or not! You collect DVD's like anyone else on this thread. So, in fact we're equals with different preferences in the way we post.
BOO YA!
