Jaws - 8/14/12

Can't wait for a Blu-ray of this summer classic. Especially since my 25th Aniv. copy has gotten pretty scratched up. from overuse.

You need to take better care of your discs.

There is a rumor that a 35th Anniversary edition is going to be released next year.

There's an HD forum, ya'know.

Yeah, they play all 4 on MaxHD all the time. The first looks the best but they all look good.

LOL, I was thinking the same. People who still buy standard DVD would be attacked over there, so why do blu fans feel free to roam here?

No one is attacked for buying standard definition DVD's.

Blu-ray is now a bit overpriced, especially RW.

That also depends if you find anything you want in the sales. I've seen lots of sales that include films I wouldn't want as part of the deal. Thus, making it not such a great deal in the end.

Early on I bought lots of SD DVDs just because the price was too good to pass on just to come to realize later that they really weren't worth more then one viewing and definitely not worth owning.

I'm being much pickier this time around.

Sorry I posted in here. I haven't really been in these forums much for the last few years, and I browsed looking for a forum titled Blu-ray and skipped right over the HD one.

No need to apologize, good sir.

I'd be interested in seeing a link to a post where someone was attacked in the HD forum just for buying standard DVDs. I've never ever seen that.

This should likely be available before the end of the year.

Hope it's soon.

For a few years now watching Jaws has become a tradition for me. I'll always throw it on when the first real nice, warm day of spring comes, then again on 4 July.

I seriously doubt Jaws would appear on BD this year. That's one of the top 2 or 3 most requested Spielberg titles. With the 35th Anniversary coming up next year, that makes the most sense to release it. It also allows for more players to be sold this year before releasing that film.

re: Jaws - 8/14/12

I hope Uni makes the original monoaural sound the lossless audio track instead of the remixed one. Main reason I purchased the 30th Anniversay was for that reason and also for the full Laserdisc documentary.
Since I'm on the topic of needles/pointless 5.1 remixes with new foley, the 1.0 track of THE TERMINATOR springs to mind.
DTS did not exist in 1975 so what's the point listening to that remixed track? Original theatrical audio for me please. Studios should also make the original language track always lossless from the original tracks. I don't know this or not but is the original German track on Run Lola Run lossless or not?

DVDs don't get scratched up from overuse. They only get scratched up from MIS-use. Your statement should read...

re: Jaws - 8/14/12

I liked the movie and I am a huge Speiburg fan, but I can safely say that i'll be skipping this. Doesn't have much replay value to me.
