So yeah, just ordered a standard def copy of TTFAW --- but wait, what's this!? Suggestions for additional buys include The Day The Earth Stood Still, the mindblowing 1951 classic and the only film that could not only challenge but exceed the brilliance of Howard Hawks!!!

So I then do a quick search and find a load of sellers trying to ditch their 2009 remake copies, and I think, "Hmm, 3-disc special edition on Blu-ray must have something more to it than a shitty remake and mediocre making-of clips." Found a helpful (albeit brief) review on Amazon that THANK FUCKING GOD pointed out that the '51 version is on one of the three discs.

Bought it for barely $5.

I feel better than hitting the goddamn lottery.
