About The Site
Are you a DVD/Blu-ray collector? Do you obsessively watch each and every special feature included on your discs? Then you, like me, are probably wondering if the latest release of your favorite title has anything new to offer that would justify a repeat purchase.
What is Double Dipping?
Double Dipping is the practice of releasing a movie on DVD or Blu-ray after it has already been previoulsy released. Sometimes a title is released with the same content, additional content, or omission of previously released content. There are even times where the names or specific features are the same or similar but the content of those features differ.
So What is this site?
This site contains compiled lists of special features found on Region 1 DVDs and Region A Blu-Rays along with an indication of what feature appears on what release. Entries are footnoted when neccessary for clarification or to provide additional information. By looking at the matrix of special features for a particular title you can decide if a recently released version of a movie is worth upgrading your existing copy to, or you can see what older releases you need to obtain to view all special features for a title. Not all double dips are a bad thing. If substantial additional content is present then a reasonably priced double dip can be a welcome addition to a collector's library.
What isn't tracked?
Generally speaking the following are not tracked
- non-Region 1/A discs
- anamorphic vs. non-anamorphic widescreen versions
- DTS vs. non-DTS versions
- updated audio and/or video transfers
- DVD-ROM and/or BD-Live features
These are general rules and not written in stone. There are exceptions to these rules for certain titles.
Whenever possible I try to verify the data on this site first hand. I have an extensive DVD and Blu-ray collection so I do what I can. When I can't verify the data myself, I crawl the web looking at various reviews, news, and product information pages to create the data. I also hope some of you will use the submission feature on the contact form to send data in.
