I believe it's the same one. I was parapharsing since most releases that have been shot in 1.85:1 would be released in 1.78:1 on home video. It buries the version Echo Bridge released stateside. I think it had a 2.0 soundtrack here, but Canada's version was full DD5.1.

My Alliance version of From Dusk Til Dawn is framed at 1.78 but has a lossless DTS MA 5.1 sound track.

Most of my 1.85:1 movies are presented that way .

Received my BD of Open Range from Amazon France. IMO, if you are a fan of the movie then it is a worthwhile upgrade over the DVD.

Likewise. Alliance is the studio I could not think of. That's the FDTD BD that I have, as well.

FWIW, having mixed results selling my discs on Ebay. Regular BD go for little and are hardly worth the shipping hassle. However, having a lot of luck with 'special/collector editions' that go for nearly the price I paid originally.

Just wait and see how little you will make if you ever want to sell one of your used digital titles.

Yes I stopped selling Discs on eBay, because it wasn't worth it. Just hold on to your Discs, as they get older and harder to find they will go up in value. For now 4K, especially Collectors Box Sets could bring in some good cash. I imagine some speculators will buy up those expensive Limited Edition 4K Box Sets, unopened marked up should be a very good sell.

If you are so certain of this investment strategy, then follow your own advice and buy up all of the limited edition 4K box sets that you can and sit on them for a good long while.

When you are all done sitting on your little gold mine, there are plenty of other things that I can recommend that you sit (and spin) on, too.

You certainly won't see any of the digital titles in your collection increasing in value, but you will get to enjoy endless rate hikes from your internet service provider to access them.

Well nothing last forever, even Discs you guys have to depend on two things the Discs and the Player. I understand some people are having some problems with some Discs and some Players. I'll bank on the Server lasting longer for my Movies and Shows.

with the special editions, you can usually take out and keep the digital code and still sell the disc on EBay for what you bought it for. Not a bad racket if you got the time

People have problems with digital collections and their internet service providers far more often than I have ever had with my disc collection and the players used to view them. My discs never randomly disappear and reappear and the content on them never gets altered as happens with digital titles.

My disc combo packs typically include a second disc copy and the digital code. I get three ways to watch and two of them do not require an internet connection.

I have multiple disc players and none of them have failed. Even my 23 year-old laserdisc player still works fine.

As for disc failures, I have had about three dozen discs fail over 30+ years of collecting making my disc failure rate about 0.47%. Among those that did fail, the studios or retailers replaced most of these for free.

I will bank on owning what I buy on a permanent disc that is actually in my possession and that is immune to revisionism, outright deletions, and that does not require an ever more costly internet service provider.

I have a ton of standard DVDs and BD's that I will be getting rid off but I'm gonna use Decluttr and SecondSpin. I've used them in the past and they tend to pay way more than what you will get via eBay/Amazon, with exception of those collector sets you mentioned. Decluttr also takes BD/DVD imports. Decluttr also lets you ship to them for free via UPS and SecondSPin will reimburse your shipping once they receive the packages(s) via USPS media mail.

I could keep the higher quality disc, and actually own something real, and instead sell off the digital code to those people who like buying air and pretending that they own such ether.

No need to package anything for shipment, either. It couldn't be any easier!

I have a vast number of codes that I could easily sell as there are so many people eager to buy into the digital "ownership" fantasy, but it seems kind of dishonest to sell such gullible people an illusion. It would be such easy money, too, but it would make me feel like a conman perpetuating a scam.

I also won't sell them because it does nothing to support the film industry. Likewise, I do not sell my duplicate discs for the exact same reason.

I understand a great many people are having problems with their digital collections?

Apart from being a dying, pointless format that is. Digital HD is basically subscription streamingís ***** at this stage. The annoying friend that no one wants to invite to the party.

Dead on arrival I say.
