Finally Coming To DVD! Preorder Now!,
This review is from: Close Encounters of the Third Kind (Two-Disc Collector's Edition) (DVD)
This two-disc set features a THX-certified 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer of Spielberg's (so far) favored cut of the film (the third!), dubbed the "Collector's Edition" after its 1998 release on VHS and laserdisc, and runs 137 minutes. The anamorphic transfer is minted from a hi-def transfer created at Sony's DVD center in Culver City, California and cleaned up for this release. The disc features both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 soundtracks, the 102-minute "The Making Of Close Encounters Of The Third Kind" documentary by Laurent Bouzereau created for the 1998 laserdisc, a collection of additional deleted scenes, a featurette on the film's enduring place in the sci-fi film pantheon entitled "Watch The Skies" (which, coincidentally, was the original working title for Spielberg's opus), talent files, and two theatrical trailers. Note that the still gallery on the laserdisc will not be carried over to the DVD. The set also comes packaged in Columbia's new "book-like" special edition casing with extensive production notes.

This review dated 2001 seems ro apply to a different product than this set, released in 2007.

You are correct in noticing that while a movie review may be applicable it is not a product review.
I no longer pay attention to it but I'd for Amazon to allow you to not just hit a NO button but actually be able to filter out reviews that do not apply to a blu ray remaster.
I'm so glad more and more people are noticing this trend.
A movie review is hardly a product review. Unfortunately Amazons movie and book reviews are completely destroyed by spam.
