    Well like most trilogies the movies more than likely get better looking each sequel. I know the first movie was always dark and I would imagine it looks very grainy like Ghostbusters so it probably looks close to the best it can. I think I saw a review that said the lossless audio was a major upgrade compared to the Dolby Digital for each movie.

    I wonder what the sales will be like on this and if they are low enough, will they do a quick re-release in a few months fixing the package

    They would be better off releasing them individually in normal cases instead re-releasing them as a boxset.

    It would have been cool if you had individual cases within like the Batman and Matrix box sets.

    1. I'll buy it when it comes packaged in proper boxes and with some actual special features.
    2. I've done this already with the first two Spider-Man movies, which I'm STILL waiting on (come ON, Sony!).
    3. This post made me laugh, considering my history with the HD formats. :D

    Ok, that packaging for the TMNT series sucks! That's the cheapest packaging ever...and most ugly that I've seen in the history of home video. lol.

    And imdaly, you will probably be waiting quite a bit for the Spider-Man films to come out in a new edition, probably when the 4th is released.

    This is one double dip I am buying. I have the previous Blu and the transfer sucks. It's also nice to be able to have the theatrical version again.

    Yeah Stargate definitely needed a re-release it is good Lionsgate is recognizing their first wave of Blu-ray's were pretty ******. I might actually consider picking up that version of Stargate.

    If you guys have netflix, you could netflix the Spidey films, at least experience them in some high def picture/sound. I thought they looked pretty amazing compared to the DVD's and if you get in the mood the Blu-ray is the only way to go.

    It's like with LOTR, I may netflix the upcoming theatrical versions. I watched The Fellowship of the Ring last night and it's not pretty. lol. Although, on a smaller screen they look pretty ok, but blow them up to a larger size and it's fuzz city. lol.
