A couple of years ago, it seems, people were talking about a Special Edition of Forbidden Planet, but I've seen no comments at all for quite a while. I mean Critereon had a nice SE laserdisc years ago with lots of deleted scenes no less. Not bad for a 1956 movie. But we are still stuck with a weak bare bones edition. Who owns this now? MGM, Warner or Critereon? Is that the problem? It's one of the last classic sci-fi movies not with at least a commentary track, let alone a restoration.
