I'm not sure which is more mind boggling; the special effects on this three in one release of Close Encounters of the Third Kind or the fact that the this release celebrates the movies thirtieth anniversary. We can't wait to go back in time to when Richard Dreyfus was a UFO nut and Terry Garr still did Sci-Fi (now she won't even talk about those days as Roberta Lincoln on TOS Trek.) Still, for all of us who grew up watching the skies this film's release was a moment worth reliving. But check your watches for missing time before you start.
