Well, I hope your optimism is not misplaced .
We'll simply have to agree to differ.

Well it arrived on Saturday and i watched it tonight, a very good effort.
It does have its flaws but i feel it gives the film a new lease of life for the modern age and draws your attention to background and things that i have not noticed before.

A stunning job, even if the skin colour is all the same

The test is, when i watch it again what version will i watch? a tough one to call at the moment but i'll let you know next year

I quite like the colourised version. I got it for the cracking transfer on the B&W disc but I opted for the two disc edition out of curiosity.

We will no doubt watch it closer to Christmas and I'm going to put the colourised version on to see if my wife picks up on it

Where's the cheapest place I can buy the 2 Disc 60th Ann release, about £15 is the cheapest I've find so far, is that right anyone would think it's on Blu.

Do you really need the 2-disc? The second disc is only the colorized [sic] version.

The UK release (just the restored original and doc) is £12 most places.

I don't really need the colorized version, no, I just thought it might be intestering to see it, but having just read a few replys on here it didn't go down well did it, the R1 though is superior though isn't it, transfer wise (rewind)

Oh dear. Haven't actually seen the R2 (I have the 1-disc version of the R1) but did just buy the R2 as a Christmas present, and it definitely states on the box that it's restored. It only came out last year, ffs.

Single disc R1 seems to be your best bet then - not too steep via Amazon Marketplace.

Single disc R1 60th Anniversary edition (so no colourised version) is £9.99 at playusa.com
The cover will be bilingual and look like this

Thanks, but I'll get it from dvdpacific I think (same price, and I actually have an account) just looking on playusa, it states "Packaging in English and French" would that be a Canadian release then

Canadian, yes. Richie's link doesn't look too offensive, actually - just go with the one that will get it to you by Christmas

Those screen caps over at DVDBeaver are damning, it has to be R1. I know I'm going to be shot for this but I rather like the look of the colorized disc, it looks like they've done it very well.

I bought the 2007 R2 disc of this last year. The sound is shocking - utterly shocking; I've not heard crackle on a soundtrack like that since I saw a mono Blade Runner in a Bracknell fleapit in 1982.
