I might replace my 5-disc HD DVD if this re-release has lossless audio on the archival versions and/or new encodes at a higher bitrate.

But, knowing Warner, this won't happen and they'll repackage the existing discs...

The Original 5-disc set was flawless. This set is unnecessary if you already own that set on Blu or red.

No thanks, I already have the 5 disc set, and unless this is a digibook release, there is nothing they can do to improve it.

The only thing they could do to improve the 5 disk set is release the original theatrical cut as a single dosk.

WHy would you want to watch the theatrical cut? It was not Ridley Scott's vision.

There's a lot that could be done to improve the 5-disc set (without even creating new materials). Higher-bitrate encodes using newer codec versions, the extras in HD, as they were originally intended to be, consolidation onto fewer discs, etc.

Honestly, I have not watched a single special features off the 5 disc set, so having them in HD would be pointless to me. Plus, I only watch the bonus features once unless it is some extra scene that takes place after or before the movie, so for me, it wouldn't matter if they were upgraded to HD since I would never rewatch them. I mean, I found Star Wars' Empire of Dreams to be the best movie documentary ever, and I will never watch it a second time, so no other special feature has a chance of being rewatched.

There is a 100% chance that this will just be a repackaging of Disc 1 from the previous set.

Before I inform you (on the basis of very easily publicly-attainable information) of how utterly wrong you are, would you like to place a small wager on that claim?
