I usually hate double dipping. I don't have endless funds for DVDs, so to spend more on the same movie pains me. To date I don't think I've double dipped.

I double dipped on:

Star Wars trilogy
Halloween (the 2disc one and then the divimax one)
Escape from New York (a no brainer as it is one of my favorite movies)
Repo Man (the tin which was a gift and the recently released one for the extras)
Enter the Dragon

I actually managed to not double dip on a lot of ones listed here like the LOTR movies (I knew the extended ones were coming so I waited), T2 (the metal ultimate edition was the first and only one I got and it was enough for me), Matrix (i simply own the individual movies) and the evil dead movies (though I'm gonna get around to picking up the book of the dead version of Evil Dead 2 to go along with my first Evil Dead one).

Are there many differences between the uncut International and the Deluxe? Also, Eternal Sunshine Criterion? Is that a typo?

the Deluxe version has extras, dts track and a trivia track. The international uncut version is mainly bare bones.

Thanks. I'll probably end up unloading my uncut version in favor of the deluxe.

Maxflier 04-09-07 09:04 AM

I've scored a hat trick with Planet of the Apes (1968). I have the original disc that came with the Evolution set, the 35th anniv. disc and of course the Ape Head set.

daniel18 04-09-07 02:42 PM

I have a couple of double dips, but the only one I'm sure I'll triple dip on is LOTR when it comes out on HD.

yachtsman 04-09-07 03:31 PM

I have seven different editions of Oldboy and waiting for HDDVD :
