Third Time Perfect,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
I can still remember getting excited watching this for the first time.
It's still a great movie, classic Speilberg (loads of subtle domestic detail) and interesting to think how much of recent popular culture has its roots in this movie. Without this would we have had X Files, a new Dr Who or any number of non-combat, alien contact movies and TV series? Probably not.
Presented in a nice, but unfussy box, the three discs come with a booklet and fold out timelines so you can see what is different about the three versions without having to sit and watch them all with a stopwatch.
In fact, the new cut is the best - more build up, but less (in fact, none) of inside the mothership. Speilberg admits it was a mistake to put that in the Special Edition.
On a good 5.1 system with the volume turned up the musical "chat" between the synth guy and the mothership is even more schoolboy-exciting than I remember it being 30 years ago.

This is how Amazon is loosing its customers! It is less stressful to go to the shop and see what you are buying... Mess.
