Re: West Side Story -- 11/15/11

I sent mine in around the 20th of January and just received my replacement last week via UPS. I sent in the blu-ray disc only, as I had the Target Digibook. Received back the full regular edition w/ Slipcase. I like having two different versions of the packaging, but most importantly, nice to have the blu-ray of the movie!

Will have to check out the "fix" tomorrow. I really hope they did it right.

Hope everyone receives theirs soon!

From what I'm hearing on the Blu-Ray Forum - The fix is botched.

Discussed earlier in the thread. See page 2.

Wow, seeing that "fix" hardly seems worth getting a replacement.

Combine that with the apparent 2-month wait for a replacement, and I'm not particularly motivated to send mine in.

Finally received my replacement copy from Fox yesterday, after almost 2 months.

this product should have never been released in the first place with the fade out flaw and the mix not using the restored 6-track sound elements - this should have sounded as good as (or better) than the 'The Sound of Music' blu-ray. end of story.

Finally received my replacement after 2 months. I only sent in the BD from the Target special edition and received the 3 disc regular version including the BD, DVD and extras.

As did I. Now, I have 1 2/3 sets, and my OCD just wants a Blu-ray disc of the movie to put back into my Target digibook to make the pair complete.

Just received the copy I ordered from Amazon last week, it's the "fixed" version (the case has a sticker on the barcode with the new verifying code).

This is the amazon deal of the day today, 25 dollars American, which is the lowest in its "flawed disc but great movie" history.
