Here’s something new. For the upcoming 2-disc edition of New Line’s “Final Destination 3,” they have introduced a new “Choose Their Fate” option which allows you to pick and choose different story threads.
While the film is only 93 minutes long, it compressed at 49%, which leads me to believe even though I chose the “movie only” feature, it was still copying all of the extended scenes from the “Choose Their Fate” edition and not just the theatrical edition (also included).
I’m not sure there is a way around this since the scenes seem to be imbedded into the film files. Every now and then, just before a victim is scheduled to die, there is a slight freeze (obviously where the “Choose Their Fate” option would be). Then the film continues fine.
I have an advance, legitimate copy of the product, so don’t ask where I got it. I just thought I would bring this matter to the boards to head off any future problems.
FYI, AnyDVD and 1Click worked fine. Just major compression issues.
