I got a chance to see Wraith's CE3K edit collection and I am very, very impressed. Spielberg's 1977 sci-fi film is a classic and this makes it even more of a wonder. This collection is a fanboy's dream, maximizing the thrill and awe Spielberg's film portrays.

I view CE3k 2-3 times every year as a tradition and have seen practically ever version available. The '77 Theatrical, 1980 Special Edition, every re-release in theaters and even all the home releases including the VHS, laserdisc, DVD, Bluray and recently the 4K release. I try and pick up different things each time. Sometimes they're noticeable and others not. Sure each new restoration brings forth something new, but they're all the same intended versions in the end.

Now with Wraith's presentation, it all comes forth in a fascinating and literally original way. A way that brings extra magic in the mix. I am thrilled to add this into the forefront of my vast cinema experiences. :)

As Roy Neary contemplated ..."This means something. This is important." And in reference to this edit it means even more.
