That's correct. Fox gave some excuse about how they couldn't get the unrated one out on Blu-ray in time, so they just went with the PG-13 version.


Dammit, that pisses me off. I bought the Die Hard set some time ago and kind of put it away and never got around to watching it. It shouldn't be that big of a deal, but I just find it irritating that when you shell out money for their product, they aren't giving you what you saw at the theater.

Uhh... they are giving you what you saw at the theater on the Live Free or Die Hard Blu-ray.

Re: Disappointing DVD releases

What disappoints me is when only the first season is released. And when you are missing part of a story because of a crossover episode.

I find it disappointing that in the past region 4 releases often lacked the special features of their R1 releases. It happened a lot a couple of years ago, but in more recent times I've come across it less.

I was pleasantly surprised by The Bionic Woman which came with cross over episodes from The Six Million Dollar Man.

I was unpleasantly surprised when the audio went out on a second season episode of the The Bionic Woman.

ATimson is right - the 'Live Free or Die Hard' blu-ray is the theatrical version, which was rated PG-13. The DVD on the other hand, had both the PG-13 theatrical version and the unrated version through seamless branching.

Well I guess my memory is messed up then, but I recall him saying the MF line as he shot Tim Olyphant at the end of the movie. Guess it's just such an expected thing for him to say that my memory fills in the blanks even though you're telling me I didn't actually see that the theater.

Different extra feature for the regions, there is very little reason as to why a region A or B should have different features.

I had to buy a couple of seasons of Hercules to get the crossovers from Xena of the Hope and Callisto arcs. I ripped them and made my own compilation DVDs with everything in order.

He says it, though they muddle it up with the sound effect of the gunshot.

I am surprised that people buy region 4 releases at all, seeing that it is usually considerably cheaper to buy region 1 or 2 DVDs.

See I would have sworn we HEARD him say it, it' s just been awhile and my memory is faulty.

I guess I'm not mad then.

I think in terms of Blu Ray it's due in part to what the features were when released onto DVD. A lot of R2 DVDs didn't have the R1 extra features, and when they've since released the movie/series onto Region B BD they haven't bothered doing the extras as they'd have to go before the BBFC for classification.

It does seem to be less of an issue nowadays though, luckily.

God yes. Even worse, the Stargate SG1 releases - 4/5 episodes per release, and then 5 releases per season, and not even the option of a full season set until much farther down the line (season 7 or 8 onwards).
