Spielberg issues "Encounters" on DVD, Blu-Ray

Steven Spielberg's landmark "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" is coming to DVD ($40) and Blu-ray Disc ($50) on November 13, four days shy of the 30th anniversary of its 1977 theatrical opening.

The story is too old to be commented.

Maybe for Indiana Jones, but not for Encounters.

But the price they put on was rediculous. A DVD for $40 bucks is a no no for me.

One of my all time favourite movies. Thats a little steep though.

I never understood the hype surrounding it :(

The ending was pretty corny.

You have to take into account the fact that it was made in 1977.
It came out the same year as Star Wars so the whole extra terrestrial, out out of this world thing was huge at the time.

For a movie 30 years old to still have any relevance today says a lot about the movie.

Like I said before.
It's good but not $40 or $50 good.
