    Cinema Paradiso: The New Version is being released in less than a week, and I haven't seen any reviews yet.

    Anyone reviews out there?

    Oddly, I've not seen a screener arrive yet. Disney usually get out titles at least a week or two early, so I dunno what's up with this one...

    All that I know is that both 123 minute & last year's 173 minute version will be included on the same disc. And that it's widescreen anamorphic.

    I've preordered this title from BestBuy.com for $17.99 (I used a DC - currently presell price is $22.99).

    Greatly looking forward to it.

    I've been told by Disney's local PR rep that advance copies will be available starting today, so online reviews should follow shortly.

    You know, I think I'll get this, regardless of the reviews.

    Amazon.ca has it for $19.59 Canadian Dollars (that's just under $13.00 US Dollars). (Note that there's no indication that it is the new version, only that it is being released on Feb 25.)

    Michael is right. I saw this last night. With a couple dollars post, it should come to no more than $15 USD. Except for its being listed as from Universal, it should be the same edition.

    Double-sided discs, eh?

    Not a fan... I'd rather have them on 2 discs.

    Well, at least it's out tomorrow.

    Still haven't come across any reviews.

    Sad to see/hear so little about this title, given its imminent rerelease. Out of all of the circulars from this past Sundays paper, there was absolutely no mention of this dvd.

    Randy,

    How does the transfer compare to the old release?

    Wow, Disney releasing double-sided discs. I guess they figure the people buying Cinema Paradiso can read and figure out what side goes up without "Full Color Character Artwork." Then again, maybe they messed up the ring labeling to prove their point that people need disc art. [​IMG]
