I don't understand why people are even bothering with this UK 'official' release. Why not order the US Blu-Ray version from Amazon.com? It's a 5-disc package and costs less than Ģ20 including delivery. The disc is region-free so will play on UK machines such as the PS3. Or is this a mistake on Amazon's part?
Better read the thread on the US site about Warner Brothers screwing up the production of the 5 disc set before buying it from the States. Apparently some people have been getting 2 copies of disc 5 (one wrongly labled as disc 1 "The Final Cut") in the set for over a year now and are having to phone WB in the USA to get a replacement disc 1 posted out. There was a very large batch made that had the wrongly labled disc so it's a bit of a lottery whether you get sent a correct copy or the bad one. Think I'll just buy the version offered here for the time being.. Good luck if you go for the 5 disc set!
I can confirm that the US 5-disc set is still faulty! I received my copy yesterday and it has two workprint versions of the film instead of the final cut - even though disc #1 is correctly labelled, it contains the workprint version of the film. The other discs are correct. There have also been buyers who, on the other hand, had quite the opposite problem - they received two Final Cut versions instead of the workprint. I understand that there is a large number of faulty sets, so the purchase of the US set is pretty much a hit or miss.
