Format: Blu-ray
I have loved this movie since I was a child, having seen the many variations and special editions on TV, VHS and Laserdisc;

I bought the Criterion Laserdisc 3 CAV discs (extended edition) and watched it like the Zapruder film, which is why I am so disapointed;

I was surprised to see some shots (3-4) have very soft focus, and visible edge distortion as if they used a plastic lens, yet I do not remember these shots from the Criterion Laserdisc... It occurs to me that Columbia (Tristar/Sony) somehow used incorrect sources, or shots that have been reprocessed from bad inter-positives to replace lost bits of film... It's a bit technical, but these mistakes have happened before and ruined other masters, and only by complaining do the studios acknowledge the mistakes and remaster the titles again.

As Speilberg's own hand appears absent from this and many other of his BR/DVDs; he never does more that a fleeting interview to note the 'special-ness' of the edition, I would be surprised if he took the time to OK this transfer.

The overall image is acceptable, the Blu-Ray brings out details. The source material is grainy/very grainy to be sure, but these soft and distorted shots bother me a great deal. Per chance I didnt pay full retail, if you see it at 15$, it's worth it.

"Mr Neary, what do you want?" - - - I want a remaster of this title...

Format: DVD
Here it is folks in all its' wonderful glory,the original theatrical version of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind".It seems Mr.Spielberg changed his mind about releasing it,and I for one am very thankful he did!
This release also goes to show what one of the "big boys" can do if they put their minds to it.That is that this release which contains the original theatrical version,the special edition and the directors cut released by Columbia Pictures,is one that is on a level with a Criterion video release and that is no small praise.All three movies have been lovingly transferred and despite the graininess visible(depending on the contrast in the scene)they are for the most part beautifully crisp and clean in their 2:35:1 widescreen ratio with their Dolby 5:1 sound.
The set(three discs)sit firmly in a bi-folding sectional contained within a handsome box with a cloth lifter for its extraction.Along with the discs is an approximately 62 page colour booklet and a colour chart showing the differences between each version.On the reverse side of the chart is a repro of the original theatre advert card for the movie.The set also contains a making of documentary which spans each disc in a three part format and the trailers for each movie are also included.
Now everyone I am sure is going to have their favourite versions of the film so I guess I had better put my hat into the ring,so to speak.In my oppinion there can be only one choice and that is the original theatrical version.It has always had all the basic elements of what made this movie great to begin with.The Special Edition slashed key elements from the first,turned sequences around and made additions along with,in my mind,the totally unnecessary ending inside the spaceship.

Great movie when it first came out and still enjoy it. This Ultimate Edition makes it even better with all the extras. Recommended for all "Close Encounters" fans!

Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
Science Fiction, Drama, 137 minutes
Directed by Steven Spielberg
Starring Richard Dreyfuss, Melinda Dillon and Teri Garr

Close Encounters works so well because of the way Spielberg slowly increases the suspense. This is not a movie that relies on special effects; it succeeds because of a strong script and good acting. Although we learn of the alien presence at the start of the movie, most of the story consists of people's reactions to those early events.

Why is Roy (Dreyfuss) behaving oddly and causing his wife and children to freak out? Chicken wire and mud in the living room is not normally a recipe for a good marriage, but it soon becomes clear why Roy thinks it's necessary. The idea is pretty simple, with an image being placed in the minds of selected people. Jillian (Dillon) has reasons of her own to pursue something and teams up quite believably with Roy. I like that there's no forced romance between the two and that they are merely acting on instinct.

One refreshing thing about the movie is that the aliens aren't portrayed as invaders. There's no hostility in their actions, they just want to know and understand us. What a contrast to most science fiction movies up until that point.

Spielberg keeps you interested for over two hours as two people journey across the country. That's quite an achievement. Notice too that the conclusion resists the temptation to show us too much about the aliens. Close Encounters is great cinema and has wide appeal to audiences of all ages.

Format: Blu-ray
I loved this movie in the theatre and this Blu-Ray is as clear as my memory of the opening night at the wide screen cinema. If you have always been less than impressed with the video quality of the older versions of this classic, you will be very pleased with the sparkling clarity of this Blu-ray disc.
All of the fine details that Stephen Spielberg included in the original movie to convince you that "this is as real as a Close Encounter could be" are beautify revealed.
It is so much fun to watch Richard Dryfess literally "tear up the scenery" while he tries to deal with a UFO encounter that leaves him feeling that "something important" is going to happen! This disc is a perfect 10 of 10.
