Jaws 25th Anniversary-vs- Jaws 30th Anniversary

Here's my dilemma do I keep the 25th for the full bitrate dts or
the 30th without a full bitrate dts but better extras

Yes I know about the full documentary on the 30th and the half bitrate dts.
I 've been stumped for weeks what to do, so any advice from all would be appreciated.

i kept both for the trailers...the reason you want the new one is the original mono track. Not the souped up, stufff added tracks....

the old dts ad DD tracks were re-recorded crap.

Keep the 25th if you are a casual fan and are happy with the quality of the dvd. If you feel strongly though, it's can't hurt to get the 30th. It beats out the 25th version, better overall dvd.

I much prefer the 30th -- for the original mono track.

You're foolish to part with either.

Used DVDs don't bring the seller much money at all, and trading in not much more. I'd keep 'em both if I already had both.

I kept both. The 30th Anniversary comes with a nice booklet too among the stuff already mentioned.

I kept both as well. The first one mainly for the trailers. The second one is worth the upgrade not only for the mono track, but because the documentary is twice as long.

Another vote fo kept both. I am a sucker for having multi versions if something major doesn't get carried over.

It's a no brainer for me to keep both. If they came out with another super spectacular edition, you bet I'd be buying that one too (especially if Spielberg would finally agree to do a commentary).
