I personally think the DCs are a nice addition, but the theatrical versions are quite perfect in their flow and pacing. Besides, in LW1 the alternate introduction by Riggs spoils the fact that he's a cop too early.

I'm guessing these are going to be region free?

This set is sounding pretty darned good. I hope we get new transfers though, as the existing ones for LW1 and LW2 are obviously old, and deeply flawed in the case of the latter.

At this stage I can't see Warner simply recycling the old transfers for 1 and 2 since when they brought Caddy Shack to blu this year it was an all new transfer, a great one at that. Man I am so excited for this set been waiting for these for years. It'll be worth the wait as long as these transfers look great which I have feel they will

Was the BD for LW2 not the directors cut? if it was then this would be new

Nope, theatrical cut. And I know Warners redid Caddyshack (to lovely effect IMO) but they haven't touched many others, and of course there's the speculation that The Perfect Storm was simply reprocessed to remove the jaggies.

So are these the director's cuts? I must have missed where they said that.

Geoff,

I think recently Warner has been stepping it up with quality. There are a few bad ones here and there but a lot of their newer releases have been great. And seeing as how Donner is doing commentaries then I'm sure these are new transfers he's probably even approved. Again this is all speculation these could turn out to be old DVD transfers from 1998 but I'm staying positive.

I wish they would be! There really is no reason they shouldn't due to seamless branching. They can have both cuts and let the consumer decide! Warner has used seamless branching on other bluray titles before like Blade Runner.

Same here, and their price for the set is up to 33.99 EUR. The douchebags don't have the balls to honor the price if they screw up like Amazon does.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Just got this email from them.

"Dear hmv Customer,


We are writing to you in relation to your order for the following item:

Cat.No: 1000169352 Barcode: 5051892021616

Artist: GIBSON, MEL: DANNY GLOVER ;

Title : LETHAL WEAPON 1 / 2 / 3 / 4: BOX SET


We are very sorry, but it has come to our attention that the item appeared on our website with the incorrect price of £11.99, instead of £33.99. We will not therefore process your order.


The terms and conditions governing our online sales state that your order is only accepted, and a contract between us formed, when hmv receives payment for the goods you have ordered. hmv has not yet taken payment for the goods listed above, nor taken the final step of confirming the shipment of your order to you by email (please see point b. in the section entitled ‘The Contract Between US’ on the first page of our Terms and Conditions). We are therefore under no legal obligation to sell the item to you at the incorrect price.


Please accept our sincere apologies for this error. We don’t like having to take this course of action, and apologise that we have had to do so in this instance.


If you would still like to order the item at the retail price of £33.99, you may do so via the hmv website
."

It went most appropriatly to my junk folder. No way in hell they ever get my buisiness.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Saw that this had dropped in my Amazon UK basket and finally ordered it. Seems like a good price in case anyone else is interested.
