I found the 9 hour version long enough. You could easily have cut 20 minutes out of the last act.

I seriously doubt any studio will ever fund a 6 hour movie to be restored and released on DVD. Even in todays age where directors are alot more free to what they wish with their films' DVD releases. It took this long just to get a SE alone, so interest doesn't seem to be fully there on the studio's part.  


Isn't there going to be a release of the 9 hour movie "Greed" on DVD? I seem to remember it being said to be 28 hours long... Guess I was wrong.

Ah, I see, well, in that case, I am in full agreements with you.

Oo baby
or get this German LE

Titanic was the same deal I believe...

Either way, it doesn't sound like enough of a change for me to warrant an upgrade.

Paramount in the US and Canada and Fox in the rest of the world.

Braveheart: Collectors Edition....FINALLY
This is one of those films I had to fight to keep myself from buying for years and years just knowing that there will be a collectors edition one day (in day I mean year), so FINALLY we have news on just that! Although I was hoping there would be more to it then what is included. But thats just me being picky.

Paramount Home Entertainment will release Braveheart: Collector's Edition on December 18th. The 1995 Best Picture Oscar-winner arrives in a new edition featuring a 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 track. Extras include an audio commentary with director and star Mel Gibson, "Tales of William Wallace" and "A Writer's Journey" featurettes, a History Channel featurette, vintage interviews with the cast, a photo montage and trailers. Retail will be $19.99.
