Die Hard vs Die Hard 5 star

Greetings!

I have the original Die Hard DVD release which is pretty barebones. I was just wondering if the 5 star release with the silver border is worth the upgrade. I am not too concerned with upgrading for extra features as much as I am for better picture quality and sound.

Thanks,
Doug

Yes, the original Die Hard does not have as good pic quality and sound.

I have the 5 star and it is anamorphic widescreen and I believe has DTS sound.

There is also a single-disc Die Hard out with an anamorphic transfer and DTS that goes for about $9.99. CC had it for $4.99 this week. I'm not sure, but it looks like it is probably the same audio/video as the Five Star but without the extra disc.

the single disc is just the first disc of the 5-Star! I never found anything good about the second disc of the 5 Star. I'd just get the Single disc for $5 at CC.

Yup - go for the single disc 5-star because, as already stated, it's dirt cheap!
