I think I'd always assumed they were the not-so-director's cuts, which is why I held off on buying them. I don't need that padding.

I'd previously owned the initial blu-ray releases, which had very crappy PQ and what I remember being the theatrical cuts.

I guess what I'm asking is, for a guy who found the PQ on the previous releases distractingly bad, and who wants to avoid the "director's cuts" like the plague, would this set be a good investment? Any huge caveats?
The new transfers for LW1 & 2 are rather nice and though the masters for 3 & 4 are older they hold up really well IMO. You get some half-decent new extras (although I'd avoid the Dick Donner commentaries unless you want a cure for insomnia) and the deleted scenes for LW1 are in HD which is a nice touch.

For the money the UK set is available for (as chip mentioned) it's the very definition of a no-brainer.

Are the stepping jaggies that evident (as they are on caps-a-holic) on the original Lethal Weapon 2 Blu-ray during, Geoff D? They look pretty nasty.

The aliasing (not only on LW2 but several other old Warners discs) is one of those things that people either 'see' or they don't. Me, I thought LW2 was a particularly bad example of it, the old disc looked shite.

Initially yes, but when Lethal Weapon 4 was released onto VHS in late 1998, these were then shipped to retail. I remember seeing them at Best Buy during the Christmas holiday that year, right next to the Titanic double VHS sets.

Ordered. Thanks fellas! (Beats the hell out of paying $45 bucks for a used copy here in Canada.)
