3.0 out of 5 stars Stick to the 2 disc version, 5 July 2005
This review is from: Pirates Of The Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl (The Lost Disc Special Edition 3 Disc Gift Set) [DVD] (DVD)
I have based my star rating mainly upon the value for money aspect for this item compared to the 2 disc version. To get to the point, in my humble opinion it is not worth paying extra for this 3 disc version. The disc comprises several "extras" which on average last about 5 minutes each and in total amount to less than one hours worth of viewing. The "Dead men tell no Tails" extra can basically be watched online and even if you didnt have internet access you wouldnt be missing that much anyway. The longest extra lasts about 13 minutes and a good chunk of this (if not all of it) is actually included within one of the extras on disc 2 anyway. The "Fun look" at foreign dubbed versions of the film isnt fun but does show the skill of the dubbing. Granted, some of the third disc contents is new but bearing in mind that you are paying around £6 or £7 extra for the third disc unless you eat, breath and sleep this film, it is rather poor value for money and after watching the extras on disc 2, disc 3 really pales in comparison. I think that Disney realise this, which is why it has been produced in strictly limited numbers. I also have to wonder whether they could have squeezed some of the contents of the extra disc onto the first two discs if they wanted. The film is of course great and the two disc version is certainly worth paying for.
In conclusion, stick to the 2 disc version me hearties and save some of those hard earned pieces of eight, arrrrrr.
