Has anyone seen the new Rush hour Special Edition movies??? It says that they are newly remastered in audio and video. I wanted to know if it was worth the upgrade to snag these. I saw them at WM for less than 10 bones and wanted to see if the remastered editions were a step above the original releases (which had some pretty washed out colors.)

Well, I was less worried about Special features and more about the remastered video and audio.

I picked up the Rush Hour 2 Special Edition a couple weeks ago. Only the picture is remastered, as the audio tracks were top notch to begin with. I tried doing some side by side comparisons with the older RH2 DVD on my computer, and the new DVD does look slightly better. Also, the total size of the movie VOB files is larger than on the old DVD.

ahhh, sounds like it really isn't worth the upgrade then. Well, come on New Line starting doing some HD stuff

Why would one want to buy either of these films, let alone double-dip?


If the special edition includes re-dubs of all chris tucker's lines with somebody who doesn't have such an annoying voice, then maybe there might be redeeming value to these movies...

First one was good fun. Liked it a lot. Second one had some moments, but was so so. Third one? Not seeing it, likely.

They're great popcorn movies (1 & 2), that's for sure. Just saw III tonight, and it definitely suffers from the dreaded can't have a perfect trilogy-syndrome. Feels very rushed and uneven.

3 was ok. I had a few laughs but just like Bourne if you seen one youve seen them all pretty much.
