OP, Everything you've said says "Buy the originals" to me. It's what I own. I'll not get into a big argument here about the new effects. There are plenty of threads about them. You are investing money, and while it might be nice to see the new effects (try youtube compilations) they - to me - jarringly interrupt the viewing, they look SO different from what was do-able then; and so different (clearly animated) from the rest of the footage. You asked advice; there it is; I wish you very well.
