Yikes…! Better recheck the cd program. Maybe the pulled another AI ? 
 

Jokes asides..another headache for LLL to tackle.

Well…people will have the 35th and 40th editions both! 😅
 

seriously…when they come from the pressing plant, no one takes a sample of the batch, open it and confirm everything is correct?

That’s the pressing plant’s job.

 

Once the run has started, by the time a copy finds its way to the label’s offices, is opened and checked, the run will be almost finished.

 

Judging by previous tantrums, it’s only a matter of time before we have people on here screaming about this mistake as if it’s a gross abuse of their human rights.

Actually I don't think that would be the case for the entire run, as I believe they do larger unit runs in batches, and just repress until they hit the maximum.

 

Of course, the label can sometimes choose to fix little issues found on a first run or make improvements, but the problem is overreactions to those issues, especially when said issues have nothing to do with the music itself. I hope no one would seriously suggest that LLL should repress any discs simply because they have the wrong anniversary on them, when the financial cost of that takes away directly from the development of new releases.

The only person regularly making these hyperbolic statements seems to be you.

Pffft. A real human rights violation is only showing Jaws in 3D! (Kidding. But seriously, people. What's wrong with you?!?)

I’m seeing it in 2D…

Not showing here in 2d. But it's in quite a few places in 3d.

Dang that sucks. I would absolutely hate that. I wasn’t quite sure what you meant, because when I bought the tickets it gave me 2D vs 3D as an option but I definitely do not want to do 3D.

Goodness me, are you serious? You give me no choice but to quote you back to yourself:


“I got the second pressing and the foot was still cropped... early buyers really are getting shat on these days.”

 

A tiny part of a cover image was cropped and you described it as being ‘shat on’. And you say I’m the only purveyor of hyperbole here?

 

Yeah. Sure thing, bub.

Here's one, if you can grasp the concept of humour:

 

Hehe, that artwork is pretty funny:lol:

Like the revisited artwork for newer pressings with no missing foot? They really had no excuse not to use crumbs' one :angryfire:

Perhaps it was cheaper to realign the original artwork than pay crumbs for their effort :lol2:

You'd be surprised. With the weak Australian dollar, I'm happy to be paid with beers.

In that case maybe Intrada will send a six pack your way for their next release ROTFLMAO

Yeah, I can apparently drive an hour and at this particular time that's not happening. I have a nice TV and my sound is as good as any theater in 1975 so I'll just wait for a good rainy day and we'll watch it here.

 

(The clock is ticking though. Fathom is showing Poltergeist. And we can't watch E.T. until we've seen Jaws. And we can't watch Poltergeist until we've seen E.T. Proper parenting is complex!) (I'm waiting on Close Encounters until they won't think it's boring. We were starved for choice in 1977. I was just happy to be seeing a movie with space ships.)

This is probably a dumb question - and possibly one to which I once knew the answer - but has an "as written" take of the end credits ever been officially released? It was originally written to feature a quick sparkly intro, then more sparkly stuff over strings with piano accompaniment. You can hear a bit of the stuff after the intro at 2:37 here:

 

 

Then they must have done at least one take that omitted the strings but kept the sparkly stuff, because that's heard as a bonus track. And finally, you've got the familiar version that skips the intro and strips the theme down to just the piano at first. But what about the version in this video? Has it ever surfaced officially anywhere?

if you have a decent home TV, you can skip the Fathom Poltergeist.  I’ve never walked away impressed with a Fathom presentation.  It’s literally like watching a Blu Ray with the volume turned down.

I'm a fan of lost media, I find the subject of media that was seen once and is now lost fascinating. A YT channel I follow did an episode last week on E.T., and I knew of this deleted scene before but forgotten about it, but basically there was a scene after the Departure where Elliot and the boys are playing D&D and Elliot is game master. As they're playing, the camera pans up and we see the device E.T. built to call home. Channel claims after John Williams' majestic cue was written, Spielberg decided to cut the scene since the cue gives you the emotional ending already. Has anyone else ever heard this claim before? Video is timestamped at the scene I'm talking about.
