Is anyone here not planning on getiing "Purple Rain" special edition?

I guess I just assume that every Prince fan with a DVD player is gonna get it.

I probably will, in my house there is a 5 dvd disc changer. So maybe I will.

sad I'm broke, or I would get it. The only version I have is a really crappy VHS I taped off of TV with horrible static and scenes missing. I'm sure I'll end up getting the DVD eventually. If you buy all three (PR, UTCM, and GB) on DVD at Best Buy you get $5.00 off. (so it comes to about $50.00 before tax) I can't even afford them w/ the sale. sigh

I'm one who chooses not to get it -- the extras aren't enough to interest me. If it would've had deleted scenes or commentary by Prince or new music or clips of the other movie/documentary Prince was working on before this one -- then I'd be interested.

I am going to rent it from Videobusters for $2 and then decide. I don't have the current version, but I always told myself I'd get PR one day. Likewise UTCM, although since I would just want to watch it again once or twice, I'll probably just rent it.

I haven't really planned on it.

I think once Prince and WB makes up there will probably be a better one released some day.

Of course, it would be interesting to hear the remastering that they did to it.

The movie's sound always turned me off even though the performances wher awesome.

Those lazy bastards over at Warners better have found a decent film print this time too. I've seen a lot of older films transferred to DVD from crappy stock. Warners are notoriously lax in this area.
If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.

My birthday was passed and none of my "loved ones" thought to give it to me mad those pricks. I may pick it up on ebay to save a few bucks. (17.99 will break a guy like me)
