discounted Raging Bull disc...

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by Bernie Woodham, Mar 4, 2005.

  1. When the Raging Bull disc came out I went ahead and bought it at around
    $24.00 thinking it would be a long, long time before it hit the discount

    So I was surprised to see a basic edition hit the shelves at under $10.00.
    I saw that today.

    I looked the disc over and it did not mention whether the disc had the
    commentary tracks found on the special edition I bought.

    Can anyone tell me?

    No, it doesn't. Bare-bones only.

    Piracy and illegal file sharing are doing great things that are
    beneficial to consumers...

    I think such reasons underly the decision years ago of music labels to
    *finally* quit cheating consumers out of the original artwork, lyric
    sheets, bios, and so forth in the CDs. I remember for years opening up
    my brand new CDs of classic albums, only to find a pathetic, lone,
    singled-sided sliver of paper showing only the original album cover.
    This was back when they were charging about $15 for CDs. It was quite
    obvious that the labels had no sense of artistic integrity, no ambition
    at all to provide music listeners with the most reasonable fascimile
    possible of the original album in CD format. They were looking to cheat
    you out of everything they possibly could until, possibly, consumers
    exercised their vote by refraining from buying. They never did.
    However, along came rampant piracy and file sharing and...voila....
    labels started putting good packages together, even adding bonus tracks
    in CD re-issues, probably in an effort to entice consumers who might
    otherwise have turned to other nefarious sources for their music. Just
    my opinion. Music labels were forced to sweeten the deal.

    Piracy and illegal file sharing are doing great things that are
    That may be true, but it isn't in this case.

    Raging Bull was released as a Special Edition ($29.99) and a Single Disc
    Edition ($14.95)
