Guess it will be my third copy then, too.

Can't wait for details!

I never got around to picking this up, but it's a great movie. I'll definitely get it this time.

Wow, the 2-disc was pretty packed. Wonder what they're adding to it?

Looks like 2006 is going to be the year of double-, triple-, and quad-dips. I think the studios are running out of things to release.

i think more than that its that their is safety in certain titles. They know they can re-sell certain movies (this one just in time for easter). Their have been alot of articles in the trades about re-releasing. Catalog title sales were down for 2005, and they want some sure fire cash flow coming in on older titles.

Well, the current release is indeed a winner, with a great commentary track. This new edition is going to need some knock-out extras to get my money.

It would be nice if that 3rd disc includes the silent version (a great film as well) ala Ben Hur SE.

The 3 disc better be SPECTACULAR, as the 2-disc was pretty good already.

Oy. For me to rebuy this, it'd better have the silent version, Charlton Heston commentary, DTS-ES, and a commentary by God and Moses.

There's still plenty of non-anamorphic and barebones titles that need to get rereleased. It's upsetting that some titles get 3 and 4 releases, when there are plenty that hasn't received a proper release: Scream, True Lies, The Abyss, The Game, Armageddon, etc...........................................................

How about giving us the Passion of the Christ Special Edition?! It's a different studio, I know.

Hmm, glad I skipped the 2nd release. If this new one carries everything over, I can go straight from version 1 to version 3!

According to the DVDEmpire listing, the 3-disc Ten Commandments is including the 1923 silent movie version.

Glad I held buying the previous release.

Sweet. I knew I kept passing this one by for a reason. I almost bought it like 20 times, but always put it back down.

The 3 disc will be mine for sure.

I'll wait for the definitive 10 disk version to come out. If they keep this up there will be a 10th.

So is it one disk per commandment or per plague?

They may work on per a commandment and then head over the plague, so there may be more . Any reason to put a new DVD out.

Hey, that's on my birthday! I dipped on the second release, but won't really mind doing so here, as long as it's as affordable as the re-release was.

Damn it!
It's now becoming a standard to include the original with the remake these days, which I appreciate, but I bought the 2-disc edition, god damn it!
Jesus Christ!

It's one disc per tablet. So this edition will restore the five missing commandments in the tablet that Moses dropped and broke.

(With the silent version included, I may have to give in and get this one.)

This is because of bad movies are being made for the past few years. Nobody is going to buy DVDs if the movies are terrible. I wouldn't buy them either.

Isn't it more because they've released all of the major catalog titles? There are plenty of films that haven't been released yet, sure, but the ones that are going to sell big are already out there. So, they have to release new editions of them to get more sales.
