I ordered the R3 one last night. The shipping cost more than the dvd. I'll post back when I receive it.

It's out of stock now. Man, they must have really been hit.

I can't find it on any other website.

Not really.
I wasn't ordering it. With HD coming out, I'm not buying any more international DVD's that will be a bitch to get rid eventually.

Plus I've had it for quite some time already.

While I appreciate having an offical special edition finally, I had hoped for Fincher to revisit the material. Isn't it poor form this late in the DVD game to recycle everything from the laserdisc?

Enh. Maybe one day.

There's really nothing more that I could have hoped for. And they did it right the first time.

I feel the same way about the Se7en Criterion. I would've preferred they just release that version since the current DVD is missing some great extras...including those outtakes.

And from my viewpoint, I'm glad I got rid of the laserdisc when I did. Made $100 off of it.

Well, first off, the laserdisc format was never widespread, and even within that niche the Criterion LD for this movie is particularly rare, so it's not like many DVD viewers have seen any of that material.

Also, think of it from the filmmaker's perspective. If you've already recorded a commentary and interviews and various other materials for a movie, how much more will you have to say about it? I think Fincher is probably more interested in developing his next project than in repeatedly revisiting an old movie he's already covered in depth.

That explanation doesn't really work. They re-did ALL the extras for Se7en. They could've just released the Criterion disc.

Criterion wouldn't license them all of the material at the time. Their stance may have changed in the time since.

They didn't license them any material for Se7en. There was nothing carried over.

And the outtakes/dailies wouldn't have been created by Criterion and therefore not theirs to license. The only thing they would have had the rights to would have been the commentaries.

I've used them 3 times I think. Never a problem. Very reliable.

It differs. It's kinda like Korean shipping (if i'm not mistaken) where it's the same price up to a certain # of discs. It's not cheap though.

Maybe David Fincher cares a little bit more about Seven, a movie that was a breakout hit and established his Hollywood career, than about The Game, a movie that had middling reviews and box office?

What does it matter, anyway? Do you own the Criterion LD? If not, what do you care whether the DVD ports over the same supplements?

I did. I sold it for $100 as I said earlier.

I care because i'd rather have it on DVD. I'd prefer to get rid of my laserdiscs rather than hang on to 2 different versions.

It doesn't so much matter to me because I made a 2 disc SE of this on DVD a long time ago.

Received the R3 today. Its cool because it came with 2 different covers one with the Taiwan letters and one with all English. So it looks just like any Region 1 dvd. It also has the same cover as all the R2 special editions except this is NTSC. I haven't played it yet so I'll post back later as to how the picture quality looks.
