Good chap that he is, DrT has been updating some of the DVD/Blu releases going on and lo and behold, many of them have been released several times already. I know there are folk out there who never got to these films the first time round, but many would have done, after all these are cult movies that would appeal to certain people who like that kind of stuff in particular. So I was wondering: who does re-buy the same films they already have over and over again and why? I will admit that sometimes I do buy the same movie, but only in certain instances. E.g. if the version released is different in some way to another release, i.e. an alt. cut, or there was a fault with the previous release (i.e. I will get Rarovideo's Werewolf Woman disc as it corrects the framing on the Shriek Show disc [that elimated nudity essential for the plot of course]). However, there are perfectly decent releases for other moviers out there that then get re-released, maybe with a few different extra's, maybe not, but isn't the point of buying a movie on disc so that you have that film to watch again and again when the mood takes. Seems pretty pointless in buying a disc if the next time you are going to watch that film is another disc release....and then the next time you watch is is another release.....then another......what was the point in getting those first releases? Especially if the image quality of the first release was corking enough (do we really need to see these films in intimate detail anyway?). Are people still excited when yet another release of The Evil Dead, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween etc is announced? The serioulsy ultimate editions were a lie after all it seems.....do you not feel duped and fed up? The leap from VHS to DVD was vast....I don't see it with Blu. In fact, some films on Blu I prefer to watch on DVD (e.g. Frankenstein And The Monster From Hell and The Jekyll And Hyde Portfolio). I don't get the fascination with having to see films in even clearer detail - and therefore having to upgrade. The most annoying thing about all this is: there are some films getting re-released time and time again, whilst so many gems have still yet to receive their first legit DVD release.
