    Just watched this film and the DVD left me wanting more. The transfer was very medicore IMO. Also the extras, the trailer has a crap load of footage in it that didn't make it into the film. Any chance of this film becoming a Vista Series disc or anything like that?

    I would like to see a version of this film with many of the scenes from the trailer added to the movie. It did seem like a lot was missing. I enjoyed the film and thought the transfer was pretty decent- but it has been a couple of years since I've seen it so maybe the picture is worse than I remember.

    First, Sly was "adorable" in this movie with his chubby cheeks and what-not. I kept wanting to call him, B.J. (as in Brandon Joseph... not "the other bj"). I loved the movie and I too want more. However, I have yet to buy the dvd. Maybe I'll wait longer in case of a SE.

    Don't know if it will become a Vista edition, but I do know the MSRP has been lowered to fifteen bucks. Maybe this is a way of dumping inventory of the bare-bones disc in antcipationof a better release, as was true with TOMBSTONE.

    Does this DVD have a commentary track? There is one on the laserdisc and I seem to remember picking up the laser because it something different from the DVD.

    The LaserDisc had a commentary and Deleted scenes on it. As for the DVD, just a trailer. This one deserves the SE treatment I think.

    Copland is a pretty good movie - one of Sly's better efforts and a very strong supporting cast as well. I wouldn't mind having a special edition for this one.
