    In the Dec. 9th edition of USA Today there is a small article about Jack Nicholson films on DVD. At the end of this article there are 4 or 5 titles mentioned that are NOT on DVD yet, one of them being HOFFA, but in parentheses was the statement "coming in January". So maybe USA Today knows something we don't know. This is the 1st I've heard that this great Nicholson movie is finally being released on DVD. Hope they're correct. Anyone have more info?

    I was in a chat with Warner Brothers (I think the one before last) and asked about this title. They said they were working on it. I wouldn't be surprised if it came out in 2004. It's a great film.

    Found this early today at a well-known retailer. Wasn't looking for it yet but they had it on one of their floating displays. 14.99. It's a single disc set, but it has a decent amount of extras. Haven't seen it in a long time, I'll be glad to check it out soon!

    Sounds to me like everything that was on the laserdisc is being ported over to the new DVD. I found the laserdisc several years back in a bargain bin at the old Camelot Music (replaced now by FYE), and they had four copies in stock - three for $18.88 and one for $10.88. A real no-brainer as to which one I got! [​IMG]

    As long as they give Hoffa a good anamorphic widescreen transfer in Dolby 5.1 sound, I'll be happy to upgrade from my laserdisc.

    So what happened to this release?
    I have been to two places and they have no record of it even being released?

    I picked up Hoffa last weekend. I went to BB on the release date and none were to be found. They must have had them in the back. When I went last night to get Raw Deal and the re-release of Planet of the Apes, all they had on the shelf was the fullscreen of the latter... several of them. They had to go to the back to get the widescreen version for me.

    Raw Deal was under drama... only one copy... okee dokee...

    None at Wal-Mart and none at circuit city.
    I guess I will have to get it online.

    I bought mine last Tuesday at the Best Buy nearest me. I guess I was pretty lucky to get it so early.

    I got it yesterday at Best Buy for $14.99. It wasn't there last week on its release date, probably because it's a catalog title and BB wasn't in a hurry to put it on the shelves. But it's there now.
