    Looks nice --- I'm glad I have held off from buying the old version.

    No specs yet, but I'll bet even money that the commentary from the laserdisc will be on there.

    Looks cool. I'm guessing it will be a double-sided disc like Usual Suspects SE.

    I like the looks of the original release. Looks crystal clear to me.

    Supposedly, there's BOTH a WS and a FF version on the 1-sided original DVD. But, for some reason, there's no menu choice for screen format. Luckily, it seems to default to the WS. (Perhaps there's really no FF on it at all.)

    Nice packaging...I received the current release as part of a free(except for shipping) mail-in offer way back when. This is an easy upgrade for me.

    It appears that the slipcase is translucent, so it's going to be plastic like the Usual Suspects SE and not paper like Thelma & Louise. I prefer not to see critics' quotes on DVD covers, though. Nonetheless, count me in for one copy.
