Name one film that deserves a Special Edition.

Something tells me you had better hold on to your pan & scan VHS or laserdisc for a while longer...Uncle George may never let this duck out of the bag, but to finally have a widescreen version and on DVD would be pretty sweet. Hey, The Ewok Adventures finally made it to DVD, so why not this, right?

Exactly, I'm not asking for a 3 disc Special Ultimate Collector's Edition, just a simple DVD with just a trailer would be enough to satisfy me.

I would like to see a proper special edition of "Dazed And Confused". I know the US has one, but something more akin to the Criterion (I think) release of "Slacker" is in order. Also I think there is a special edition rumoured of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" due this year (not sure when).

"I'd like to see a 2-disc Titanic Special Edition"

Rumor has it, we're getting a 4-disc release.

I'd say Batman, but if I'm not mistaken it's already on it's way, so I say The Fugitive.

I would like to see Robin Hood: Men in Tights. They are just about to release Spaceballs SE, so now it is time for this.

The fugitive got its special edition a few years ago. I have it sitting on my shelf. Very Happy

Of course Blade Runner. With all the cuts accessible through seamless branching; at least a Ridley Scott running commentary; DTS-ES 6.1 discrete remix; a definite documentary chronicling everything (it's initial reception, later rise to cult status, the difficulty of getting that one last arsehole to budge on releasing a SE, etc).

Point Break
Strange Days

Steven Spielbergs under-appreciated masterpiece featuring a very young Christian Bale: "Empire of the Sun."

Neil Jordan's beautifully rendered version of Ann Rice's "Interview With The Vampire."

Why the bumping of such an old thread? Just look at the number of movies mentioned that already gotten special treatment throughout the year. Laugh
