Some dude in HD's thread is saying that only the UK versions are remastered (and the site only lists the UK ones as remastered ). Thought I'd repost his comment and my Q response to get some feedback here as well:

Whereas the U.S. version does not.
"Remastered when? Not sure I can buy that even thought the UK says remastered and the US entry doesn't. My understanding was that the US discs were all remastered - and I sure as hell don't want to have to buy this set again to check. Can anyone confirm or deny?

Thanks ahead for any info ...

Search this thread for remastered, it pops up several times this has been addressed and while I haven't watched mine yet to be 100% sure, the 2012 release has been confirmed as 'remastered'.

2012 is the remaster with bonus disc. The four film favorites released last year with just the four movies stacked on one another doesn't have the remasters for 1 or 2.

Don't support that shit. Wait for Warner to release discs with both cuts.

According to others here, The Extended Cuts will never be ported to Blu-Ray because of a contract with Donner.
I myself prefer all of the Extended Cut versions.
I right now, have just the 4-Film Favourites Edition, though I swapped out the case for a real 4 Disk Case.

I bet they could still release the other cuts separately like they did on DVD. They just can't use Donner's commentary, which I could give a **** less about. I wish some of these old producers would age faster. That prick Cameron is probably the only thing holding up a much needed BD release of Abyss.

Yeah, it says so clearly in the review. I just wanted to spread the word.

"The film that launched Donner's fabled buddy cop franchise features the same well-received, meticulously remastered 1080p/VC-1 transfer as its 2010 UK counterpart; not the poorly encoded presentation fans in the U.S. have been avoiding since 2006."
The reviews for the other three only get better and better.

I actually do not like the Extended Cut of Lethal Weapon 1 when compared to the Theatrical.

So the 4 film collection is it worth it? I love these films. I don't see a review of the 4 film set on this site.

Whoops I see there are 2 different sets. So the 2012 set is worth it?

One post wouldn't do it?

No. Some sets still show up with wrong and/or unremastered discs - and you lose out on the extras disc.

Wait, so the 4-film favourites might have the remasters as well? How can I tell?

None have the remastered first movie, some may have the remastered second...or Swordfish. LW 3 and 4 are the same in both.

I know about the SwordFish mishap. How can I tell if I have the original or remastered LW2. I know I don't have SwordFish, I already checked.

The remastered LW and LW2 have DTS-HD MA. If all you see is an option for Dolby Digital, its the original release.

I kinda got used to the Extended Cuts over time but I would side with opinion that they're not director-approved and I agree that the extra scenes are mostly superfluous to the plot (particularly the sniper scene in LW1). I had the VHS box I picked up in Canada and then I got that 4-Film Favourites collection. I had no real intention of buying the UK 5-disc Blu-Ray release (even though it had commentaries and new featurettes) until a couple weeks ago when I decided to give the 4-Film Favourites collection its first spin since I got it all those years ago. Unfortunately the first disc wouldn't get past the layer change on either side so I couldn't watch LW1 or LW2. Tried it on three players and a DVD-RW drive but couldn't get past 43-53 minute mark, however I did manage to extract the data using software so I decided to buy the UK boxed set and then maybe I'll slip the rips of LW1 and LW2 in there with the perfectly readable 2nd disc from the 4-Film Collection to create the ultimate boxed set.
