Davros Collection [Feb. 5th, 2008|06:56 pm]
[mood |cheerfulcheerful]

Further to my previous list of DVDs for sale, I now have the Complete Davros Collection in, which I'm selling for $130. First in first served, but if you miss out I can take orders.

It's got Genesis of the Daleks, Destiny of the Daleks, Resurrection of the Daleks, Revelation of the Daleks, and the Remembrance of the Daleks Special Edition, with previous effects mistakes fixed, a couple of new documentaries, and new 5,1 sound mix. Apparently early pressings of this had a brand new sound fault, but those have since been fixed.

It also has 8 Davros audio plays, one written for the collection. The titles are - Davros; The Juggernauts; Terror Firma; I, Davros - Innocence; I, Davros - Purity; I, Davros - Corruption; I, Davros - Guilt; and The Davros Mission.

On one hand, it's kind of annoying that they've released this set. On the other, I figure when I'm eventually left with one, I'll sell my copies of Resurrection, Revelation, and Remembrance second hand.

For those who already have most of the stories and don't want the collection, Destiny of the Daleks is getting a release too.

Why would they fix effects mistakes? They're the best bits!

On the previous release they used different prints of some of the footage because they were of better quality. Unfortunately they didn't notice that a couple of these were missing finished effects shots.

That said they have been releasing stories with new CGI effects footage to replace the some of the older, dodgier effects, though it's an extra, so you can still watch the original effects.

The finished results of the new effects are variable. My opinion is it's fine to fix the effects, so long as you stay true to the spirit of the direction, and what was done design-wise. So Ark in Space annoys me with its clever camera angles on the space station, and the fact that the shuttle doesn't match the original look. That said, the redone dalek ships in Dalek Invasion of Earth are pretty well realised.
