    i'm having a little trouble with this one...

    i usually upgrade most of my dvds when a new one comes out -- with the exception of 'The Mummy' -- but the fact that the last dvd is pretty damn good already in the audio/video dept that i'm really considering skipping this release.

    sure it's got a commentary track, but is that worth spending another $25? Plus, i've heard that the special feature of watching it run FORWARDS has been left out...

    i'm anticipating most of you to say "s@!t yeah" , after all this is the home theater forum

    It definitely is on Disc 2. I'll be getting this since I held off getting the relatively barebones one.

    I'll probably be upgrading as well. I usually do. I just can't live happily knowing there is a "better" version out there.

    I will be upgrading. MEMENTO is an excellent film, and I simply can't pass up a special edition of it!

    Luckily for me, the first release was one of the few I was able to exert my puny willpower on and hold off on buying, so....no dilemma for me, baby!! [​IMG]

    Memento was my top film of last year...but with the so few extras on the 2-disc set, I'll stick with my current version.

    Usually I am a sucker for reissues. However, in this case I think I will stick to my current version. I am very happy with the presentation on the current verion. The extras on the limited edition don't look all that enticing and I definitely don't wanna be solving puzzles each time I need to access the movie or the extras (the novelty of such features wears off pretty quickly and its not long before they start to become a nuisance).

    Right before Switchouse.com went belly up, I traded my original Memento DVD for Pink Floyd: The Wall. [​IMG]
    I have a nice spot all picked out for the Memento SE!

    I think I'll give this one a skip. The one I've got is good enough for me.

    I'll stick with the original one. The only special feature on the new SE I'm interested in is Nolan's commentary, and that's most likely something I'll listen to once or twice and that'll be it. Not worth the upgrade.

    Deepak's explanations were another reason why I won't be upgrading. Restating a common quote here on the HTF: when I get a DVD, I want to watch the movie, not play a videogame.

    I've been waiting for this DVD a long time. This is the very definition of a no-brainer.

    There doesn't seem like alot of extras were added to the SE, so I'm gonna stick with the original release.
