Why didn't they just release this in the first place?

Yea, no kidding. Does this new set include the 'extra movie' included in the bonus disc at Walmart?

"dead right" is listed in the first post, if that's what you mean.

I thought the Wal-Mart bonus was the Fuzzball Rally.

I think all of the extras on the UK R2 and the Wal-Mart bonus disc along with some new ones are included on this CE.

Wow I don't think I've ever been more upset about a DVD re-release. Mostly because I practically jumped through hoops to track down a widescreen version of the Wal-Mart set. I wouldn't mind so much if it only contained the same two discs, but it has a third disc. Not to mention it's coming out so soon after the original release. I might've understood if they had waited at least a year. I'm not actually angry so much as I am very surprised and disheartened.

This looks like it has the commentaries and an extended Fuzz Ball ralley clip. I'll pass, as I have the Wal-Mart two pack.

I was in BB the other week after I watched this on Netflix and said, "You know, I liked this enough to buy it, but I know this is just screaming for a douple (possibly more) dip. I think I'll wait."

Glad I did. However, even on sale we're talking ~$25. That still may be a little rough to take. Honestly, how often does anybody watch all of the extended features?

That’s my opinion as well. I also had a hard time trying to get my hands on the WS version of Hot Fuzz at Wal*Mart & I they only had 2 WS copies & the rest were full screen. I wish this was just released on the same day as the 1 disc version.

I won’t be double-dipping; I’m just going to stick with the OR DVD release of Hot Fuzz.

Thankfully the HD DVD release had most of this to start with. Universal should have just released this on day one.

Well, that just sucks. I too went through a lot of trouble to get a WS two pack from Wal-Mart. As much as I love this movie, I doubt I'll double dip.

Edgar Wright is friends with Peter Jackson, right? He should've taken a cue from him and announced this CE when the regular edition was announced like Jackson did with LOTR (provided he knew Universal was going to release this and wasn't barred from saying so).

This is strange since Wright and Pegg seem to care about the fans, given what I've seen.

I jumped through hoops for the WM pack too, but I'll try to get rid of it and buy this new one. These companies are bitches.

Dammit. No doubt I'll end up getting this, though. Looks like there's an extra commentary, though. *sigh*

Glad I cancelled my R2 order though...

While I thoroughly enjoy the HD verison, this ticks me off. The HD version is worth it just for the picture quality, but I really want all the extras.

The drawback to this is that it will reach a point that a lot of us will not buy the original releases in the future. When those sales levels drop in response, they will be less likely to issue 2 (or 3) disk SEs and CEs. It's an evil cycle. If only they had a 'trade-up' program that you can get just the new material (although commentaries would be tough to do.) But then we would gripe about the nickle and diming they are doing.

Frustrating.

I'm sure in 3 months I'll have made peace with this news, enough to double dip. Or maybe I just won't care any more. We'll see.

I don't have the Wal-Mart disc in front of me (I too jumped through hoops to get it, godammit), but are we SURE everything from that bonus disc on here?

Gee, this kinda sucks.

Was that fifth commentary on the R2 disc? The one with "Edgar Wright and Guest"?



Edit: Now that I think about it, I probably would've been ahead if I bought the R2 release because it would've cost $34 total while this 3-disc release will cost probably $25-30 when its release... double *sigh*
