I have one large box set that was never released on DVD. It's the Godfather trilogy. Francis Ford Coppola re-edited the 3 movies and added extra footage to make one 9 hour and 47 minute movie! How's that for an evenings entertainment?

My one and only laserdisc experience was renting a machine and a copy of "The Postman Always Rings Twice."Originally Posted by scifan57
It was the reboot starring Jack Nicholson, Jessica Lange, John Colicos & Michael Lerner.
The movie hiccuped throughout with stops and starts. There was also some weird picture bending - almost like the image was warped.
Anyway - I pronounced the technology DOA and resumed my uncontrollable consumption of VHS.
My wife bought me the first VHS transfer of
A L I E N as a birthday gift. Mail-order for $109.00 plus delivery.

I've got a copy of the very first VHS release of Star Wars, from 1983. It even has it's own serial number! It's 29 years old and still plays!
The only difference between this version and the theatrical release version is the opening credits. In 1977, the opening credits did not say episode IV, A New Hope. In this release, they do. To my knowledge, there has never been a video release of Star Wars with the original 1977 opening credits.Originally Posted by iJamesH
I also have the laserdisc box set of the Star Wars trilogy. Among the extra features are several trailers for each movie, including the original Revenge of the Jedi trailer, made before the name was changed to Return of the Jedi.Originally Posted by scifan57
