Great film, great review! Looking forward to adding the new disc to my library, right next to my Image DVD and LD box set (I'm still not going to get rid of that huge LD set with book and CD!). Cheers,

Thanks for the excellent review! I can't wait to get this great film, especially since I have not seen it since it was in theaters.

Solid review Ron. It is nice to know there are other people who are touched this this film. I am looking forward to May 20 even more now, but is was always a sure purchase for me.

Thanks for the review, Ron. I think you'll want to edit the "Home Theater Forum DVD Reviews" section of the front page, because Dances With Wolves isn't listed as Highly Recommended.

You guys are very kind.

Actually, I just updated the review. I thought
my remarks about the two commentaries were
included, but I accidently posted the first draft
of my review (I always review the commentary last).

I have updated the review with my thoughts on
the commentary that I sampled.

Also, I have adjusted the announcements to reflect
the HIGHLY RECOMMENDED status.

Thanks again.

Great review, Ron. Any chance that you will be reviewing the Windtalkers Extended Edition which is being released on May 20th also?

Bill,

Probably not. Though I just received the screener,
Windtalkers was a film I just didn't care for.
Having to sit through it again is going to be a
painful experience. I am opting instead to review
some classic MGM fare being released at the same time.

Then again, who knows...if I have the time I may
just review it after all.

I cannot wait until this one comes out. I have wonted to get it for quite some time now but when I decided to get it I found out it was no longer in production.
This is easily one of my favorite movies I have seen yet but I don't know if I've seen the theatrical version or the special edition. The first time I saw it was on HBO I think, about 5 or 6 years ago, & I caught about the last half of it when it aired on tv.
I am disappointed to see that we wont get treated to a DTS track, but I will still be very happy to add this to my collection.
Thanks for the great review RonPosted Image Posted Image

Good review once again Ron. Even so I don't like Kelvin Coaster that much, I been meaning to see this movie, and this dvd sounds like a good purchase for me.
I need a new signature.

Well Ron your review has made me change my mind about this - looks like I'm going to have to pick it up now.Posted Image Posted Image

BTW - the music played during the Intermission screen - does it recycle after awhile or does it play the whole soundtrack?
