    How do you like the Episode 2 DVD?


    I got my Attack of the Clones DVD this morning!

    It seriously rocks! Wal*Mart is charging only $9.87 for it today, November 12, the first day it's on sale. I suspect they are doing this because they know about Toys R Us' $9.99 price.

    This will be TRU's regular price though, and I think Wal*Mart will carry the movie at its regular rate of $14 soon. My 24 hour grocery store (Ralph's) even had the movie last night, but they were charging $22 bucks for it - as they know people will pay!

    But though I think the DVD is worth even that price, I was glad to get it for 10 bucks!

    I also bought the VHS. It's only available in pan-n-scan but it has a unique "Star Wars Connections" video-overview at the beginning, hosted by C-3PO and R2-D2 in what looks like a Mon Calamari battle cruiser, and it shows scenes from all 5 Star Wars movies. It directly mentions that Anakin Skywalker becomes Darth Vader, setting speculation that Episode 3 won't reveal that fact blatantly, a little bit of a step back as young kids who have never seen Star Wars will learn what happens in Episode 5 by watching Episode 2. An interesting choice, though not one that applies to the DVD.

    Meanwhile, back to the discs, I love the Droid Factory Menu that stomps on Geonosians while you select scenes. He-he-he.

    Meanwhile, on Disc 2, check out the documentary on Ben Burt and the sound design for Episode 2 - it's on the "Movies are never finished - sometimes they escape!" title. That was fun to watch and worth seeing!

    But here's the poll and the thread - you guys who've got it can really start the discussion going now!

    I'll chime in again, I'm sure.

    NOTE: My Walmart was not selling them even a minute past midnight. There were some pretty upset Star Wars fans at stores around San Diego county last night! But I had to wait until they opened at 7am today to get my movie. But I did get it and it's a SW holiday so far as I'm concerned!!!

    So what do you think of the DVD to Attack of the Clones???

    I love it, even more than I expected. Great quality, fun features, and I was really excited to watch the flick again after almost 3 months.

    I'll be playing with this for a looooong time, and I like the fact that I can now fast forward past the few parts I don't like.

    I am extremely impressed with the video quality. I have a TON of DVD's and this is, by far, the best in terms of picture quality. The audio is great too; but TPM had audio just as good. The video is beyond comparison, IMO.

    As with TPM its a well put together DVD Im very happy with it! but.... where is the cut scenes with clones on speeder bikes (makes the deluxe trooper toy look EU ) and the jedi sneaking into the federation ships to disable the droids?? Apart from that its great!

    I have had a my copy since Saturday and I can say that I have seen it enough to say it is AWSOME! Great features. The picture quality, sound and effects are just mind blowing! I will wear out my DVD player watching this one.

    I haven't opened mine up yet since I'm still at school, but I did get it around 7:30 this morning at WM. I didn't even need the TRU flyer; they were just scanning it up automatically for $10.

    I expect it will be pretty much the same format as the EP1 DVD which is great because I rate that one as the best in my collection.

    Got it at my local super(?) WM @ 12:45 and they Price matched it for $9.99 and I picked up one for my brother and a problem....and I missed the hardcore fans -(bummer since I overslept). It looks and sounds fantastic. The menu options are still not in DD but I am not an audio purist.

    I got a guestion -- My TRU was out of the Wide screen version. Other than the little more in view -- is there ANY differences in the wide screen version and the full screen version? Meaning, are there extras that are on the WS version that I cannot get on the FS version.

    Also -- do you think that there will be a collectors version released like with EPI ??

    Thanks for the help...

    The discs contain the same material. But why in the name of all that is sane and rational would you want to buy a pan/scan copy. Go to Wal-Mart and do a price match and get thee a wide screen copy, please!
