Enter the Double DipTheCapt1701 | May 28, 2012
Even now, with some titles coming out first in either subtitled-only or DVD-only formats and then later released in different or expanded formats, people have to decide whether or not to re-purchase the newer release ………….. or in other terms – to Double Dip.
Those who have been collecting for some time may have seen this choice come and go several times over the years. Here are some examples of the Double Dip.
Coming in at just about 2 decades, the first Silent Mobius movie was originally released in Japan in August of 1991. While it has only seen two official releases in the US, it’s a notable favorite of mine since the first Streamline VHS release back in the early 1990’s.
Here are the Japanese Laserdisc release, the above mentioned Streamline VHS (English dubbed, it was never released in Japanese w/English subtitles at the time), and the most recent DVD release by Bandai Entertainment USA in the late 2000’s (this release was the first to include the original Japanese language track with English subtitles as well as a newly created English language dub track. Unfortunately it did not include the original Streamline English dub. As a bonus item, it did include the OST CD.).
