    Writing the review now for the three films, been working onit 5 hours so far, hard going.

    As for the pic and sound, i don't think you will be disapointed.

    The lets see it trailer is from 1999, but it has never been on a DVD, well apart from the THX demo disc;)

    just finished watching raiders,exceelnt stuff,the sound and pic was really good,i am watching ona 36" 100hz panny and the dvd pic quality was outstanding,i didnt see any artifacts or blemishes,also i didnt notice the layer change????first time thats ever happened,the sound in 5.1 was also impressive,just cant get the indy theme tune out of my head,glas that speilberg didnt mess about with the film also,still love the bit where indy leaves the camp on his horse to chase the nazis and on the way out the horse tramples on an extra!!at last one of my favorite films on dvd,now i think i'm in for a long long wait for my all time fav.:smashin:

    can i assume the region 1 is the release to go for then.
    would i be sad to buy the R2 and regret it all later.

    go for the r1 version,if you order it from movietyme you'll proberly get it in a 3-4 days,i am a massive indy fan and have allways wanted the uncut temple of doom,the r2 will be cut.the bonus disc with the r1 is excellent too,the main documentary lasts for about 2 1/4 hours and covers all 3 movies,then there are featurettes totaling about 40 mins,an excellent boxset in my opinion.:smashin:

    Mine has turned to packaging with DVD Soon, has anyone noticed they have charged us $5 shipping on the 58.98 price? even though i chose free shipping

    But if you look at the price of the box set now its $63.98

    so did they make a mistake and if you paid 58.98 u are charged the extra $5 in shipping?

    EDIT just got an e mail saying it was shipped on the 9th :) not long now

    Why is R2 being cut? I'm pretty sure I remember seeing the video rental in the 80's and IIRC the heart ripping scene and the guy lowered into the lava weren't cut.

    The end of Raiders was also very cool when the Nazi's melted and the baddy aged really fast!

    well I've never been a big fan of Raiders so wasn't overly thrilled at the prospect of a boxset of movies I may not even get round to watching..but after reading THX 1138's review..I just ordered it. Nice write up mate, thankyou.:)

    Neither, it's status is 'Order taken'.

    Not released 'til 20/10.

    I've never received a pre order from Play either on or before the official release date so I'm not holding my breath.

    Dam,

    I got mine on pre order with amazon.co.uk since when i pre-ordered it with them it was still £35 at play. If you would have said it's been posted by play i would i cancelled my amazon order and gone for play. I have had about 10 R2 dvd's from play before they release date. I hope the R2 boxsets start getting dispached soon since i really wanna see Indy. I dont have a clue weather amazon post before release i hope they do.:rolleyes:
