: Weeeeellll, I just ordered my DVD from Amazon!! Even tho' I know I'll be disappointed in some stuff, I've still got to have it!
: So now I'm excited!
: Of course, I've got to rent a DVD player when it comes...I sure hope I get a better one than they gave you, Marcia! *keeping my fingers crossed*
>>Me, too, Myrrh...though my sound difficulties may have been because of the temporary hookup, rather than the player, itself. When we get our own personal-for-keeps player, it will be hooked up properly, I'm sure, and then I'll be able to hear the sound like it SHOULD be heard!
: A few people were BITTERLY disappointed, and described exactly why (one even called it false advertising and fraud).
>>Well, as you know, I'm of the opinion that it is NOT a Director's Cut, so I guess that could constitute at least false advertising.
: I know I'll find the same things very disappointing. But lots of people were swept away by the clarity of vision and sound, so I know I'll really appreciate that aspect.
>>Yes, when I have my own setup, I'll be able to judge the whole thing better, I'm sure. And you really CAN see many things more clearly.
:I love the idea of being able to ZOOM in on things! What a concept! Woooo-hoooo! Does this mean we'll see Hawkeye's nose hairs?
>>Now THERE'S something I hadn't thought of!! Oh, I really MUST go get a dvd player of my very own...SOON!! ;o) It is great fun to be able to select the exact scene you want to see & jump straight to it, but with my parents watching with us, I didn't want to waste their time while I played with the Zoom feature. Guess I have THAT little treat to look forward to!
: Can't wait to see it now. Even if it's flawed. Maybe my brain can make a mental amalgam of the best aspects of the two.
>>That's MY plan, at present.
