Re: Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut - 11/3/09

I got my review copy today.

Very impressive case. My suspicion regarding the "Limited Edition" nature of the release is that this set will go OOP. However, I would be shocked if first disc of this set (the extended Director's cut with dual commentary tracks) isn't re-released later down the line; maybe the second disc would be with it as it contains the bonus features.

However, the remaining three discs are a digital copy of the theatrical edition and the motion comic, which is just the original motion comic release as it was sold in stores. Same case, same content.

In a way it makes more sense than what the did with Blade Runner, where they sold a 2, 4, and 5 disc edition of the film. I know quit a few people who just bought the two disc because it was cheaper. Had they just sold the 4 and 5 disc without telling people later, the 2-disc was coming, a lot of people would have bought the more expensive set.

I'm the complete opposite in that I don't see them bothering to re-release this after it's gone. I mean, how many people out there are really clamoring for a 3 1/2 hour cut of this movie?

Yeah, exactly. Just because we might think it's cool doesn't mean there's a big demand. Hell, even the director isn't particularly excited about this cut.

Watchmen Ultimate Cut Bluray was a blind buy for me. I never saw any version before today. It was brilliant, a truly epic film. The Black Freighter segments enhanced the story. Picture and sound were outstanding. Highly recommended.

Is it considerably larger than a typical case? I'm having a difficult time determining dimensions, and I'm not exactly crazy about oversized packaging.

Not terribly large.

About 5.75" wide, 7.75" tall, 1.75" thick.

It's just slightly taller and wider than a standard case, since a standard case has to fit inside.

Walmart.com is SOLD OUT of the Blu-Ray.
Dvdfile.com (which has never been wrong on their reviews that I know of) says that there are only 70,000 Blu-Rays. Anybody know the details on how limited the dvd and Blu-Ray really are?

Don't forget to use coupon N4V24RVDNH at DD and get $5 off. Brings this down to $25.89.

It's $30.99 and in-stock at Amazon.com now, if you don't want to worry about DD's backorder status.
