First off the Official Site has updated with a few new Databank entries that feature shots from the cutscenes on the upcoming Episode I DVD. To check that out click the following link:
http://www.starwars.com/databank/news/2001/09/news20010905.html

And theforce.net had some other things that will be in the DVD release.

So the question is,are you going to buy the EP1 DVD release???


Thoughts?

heck yes - I'm not overly impressed with the pics the official website displayed, though.

You better believe it! I bought my DVD just for Ep.I. Course while waiting I've enjoyed buying many other DVDs, heh heh, I love DVD they're fun! :D

I've already bought it from Amazon.com, I'm just waiting for it to arrive. Now I just need to buy a DVD player.

My fellow padawan Derek was so sick of hearing me talk about it, so he ordered it for me about a month ago for my birthday. He said, "Not another word about this until it arrives on your dorrstep in October. Got it???"

Sooooo... I didn't have to buy it, but I'm definitely getting it!!! :D

I don't personally own a DVD player, but would probably rent and watch it with friends...IF the "added scenes" aren't all a bunch of podracer crap. Arrrgh. They had better put back in scenes like Anakin beating up the little green guy and other things that actually add to the CHARACTERS and STORY...

I'm a documentary junkie, so I am probably more excited for the "behind the scenes" segments than anything else.

First off...Duh. of course I will buy it, with 400+ DVDs, I believe I am the SSG DVD King...

Second, just out of curiosity, what does AEP stand for???

I'm with Caesar in being excited for "Documentaries" on the film. I've grown past actually enjoying the films thenselves (although I still enjoy them) and see them more as touchstones for the EU or finding more about how they were made (what went into the creative process) so Behind the scenes stuff and books dealing with schematics and maps are really exciting to me. I think Jargo once said he knew so much about how the films were made that he had deconstructed them past enjoyment, and only watched them to glimpse another obscure alien or try to figure out where a certain T-16 was stored. I'm getting to that point myself. Seeing those "deleted" scenes will be cool. Once they become available, who is going to consider them "canon" for purposes of discussion like the lost "Anchorhead" scenes? I probably will.

Rollo Tomassi, can I ask a trivial question regarding your DVD collection? Do you count them as 400 titles, or actual discs? I only ask because by counting every disc I have, it's around 250. I have several 2disc sets (Hannibal, Se7en, Glory and such) that contain so many extras that it feels justified.

Not that it matters or anything, I'm just curious as to how other collector's embrace their collections. There seem to be alot of DVD fans here, and I have a few other questions I might pose in general threads.

Thanks :)

Rollo, ha, it stands for my old forum ID being 'AP' but the new forums won't accept a two-letter ID...so an extra one gets thrown in. :)

As a close personal friend of Rollo, ;) I know it refers to the number of titles. The man does nothing except spend money on DVDs and Star Wars...

Cool - even 4 disc sets like The Sopranos Season 1?

You might be the SSG DVD King but you ain't "The DVD King"

Of course i'm going to buy it. Yessssss!!!!!:D

over 400 DVDs?!? Wow. that must have cost an arm and a leg.
Who even wants over 400 DVD's? I probably don't even like over 100 movies that are worthy enough of me to buy on dvd. Rent maybe but not buy.

There is so much more you could do with that money like buying Star Wars stuff.

yep, I'm buying it. I've been looking forward to the cut scenes.

What's that supposed to mean?


And how do you "quote" more than one person at a time? I haven't figured that trick out yet...

master jedi, I have enough money to support both habits, but hardly enough for anything else. Plus, I never pay for theatrical releases because I work in a theatre, so the cost of the movie I don't pay for plus the cost of the rental is the same as simply buying the disc in my mind. If the movie sucks then they never get ANY of my money, but if it's good, I'll just buy it. Besides, I hate rental places...Blockbuster is the work of the devil.:mad: No matter when you bring the rental back, you "miraculously " get charged the $5 late fee. Well, screw that, my friend. I just don't rent anymore. I buy it or I wait for it to hit HBO...

Buy Vintage Stuff! :)

It means he (probably) has the most DVDs here on SSG but there are people out there with even more!

When your replying to a message (where you type it up), if you look under the "COLOR" pull down part there is a box that says "Quote" just click that and put in the message you want to quote,so simple :)

The more I read about the extra features, the more I can't wait to get this bad boy!! I hope that it doesn't take the USPS too long to get my order to me!!! That's the only crummy part about my friend having ordered it for me as a birthday present. I won't get it the day it comes out!!!

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

I'm buying it from curiosity about the added footage and the hidden extras/easter eggs. I'm actually only looking forward to the rumoured gag reel of foul ups and out takes. I probably won't bother to watch the film for a while until someone else wants me to like my non star wars fan brother who just has to see those ANH stormtrooper scenes time and time again :rolleyes: He'll watch it for Natalie Portatoman. I'll be watching for Diva Funquita...HUBBA HUBBA! fat chicks all the way....! :D

Episode 1 DVD is looking to be a pretty nifty little set! Can't wait.

Like so many others, I bought my DVD for Star Wars--then found out it wasn't available. I'll be one of the first in line for this bad boy.

Rollo, I know what you mean about rentals. Blockbuster and Hollywood have pretty much run everyone else out of business, and they only offer the "bargain" of long rental periods. If I could rent one for a night for less, I would, but typically I find myself thinking, "Okay, I've heard this is good from several people. Do I rent it for $5 or buy it for $10?"

I'd be curious to find out how many people bought the DVD even though they hated the movie.

Kind of like me with the Droids and Ewoks DVDs as well as the Holiday Special DVD that I would buy if they released it.

I bought a Holiday Special DVD off eBay...




I even bought AOTC on DVD.

Yup I got it on DVD (along with two copies on VHS). I'm a sucker so I'll pick it up again when the entire saga comes out on dvd.
