There's really no need... there's a great commentary track, flawless video and audio.

They could add a cast commentary, Deleted Scenes, that trailer that was never shown, a new documentary ...

So many lesser movies have gotten Special Editions that it seems silly that both this and Breakfast Club aren't out in some kind of 'Deluxe' editions.

I would absolutely love a cast commentary track on both FBDO and The Breakfast Club (especially The Breakfast Club).

I agree. I'd absolutely love to see this get the S.E. treatment it deserves.

By the way, can anyone answer a question that's been bugging me for years... How come the DVD is in 2.35:1, and the remastered LBX laserdisc is 1.85:1?

As far as I can remember, there were no obvious signs of bad framing, and so I would guess the LD is an 'open-matte' transfer from the Super 35 negative (similar to the DVD of Star Trek VI).

Can anyone confirm please?

From the IMDB:

http://www.imdb.com/...91042/laserdisc

Quote:
The transfer is great, but the aspect ratio is wrong. This was a Super 35 film with an aspect ratio of 2.35 : 1. The LaserDisc has too much unneeded information at the bottom of the frame, which makes some compositions look poor. However, it has a wider picture than the Pan & Scan version. To get the correct presentation you will have to matte out the bottom 21% of the picture.

I've been thinking about this, and I'm predicting that a special edition might come out in two years to celebrate the 20th anniversary. This is purely speculation.

Yeah, the existing DVD is missing the trailer AND the deleted scenes. Funny thing is, John Hughes discusses the trailer briefly in the commentary track and talks about how it included some scenes that were cut from the film. What a tease... Posted Image

Argh, definitely! It's very annoying to hear a director talk about deleted scenes and then find out they're not on the disc!

Especially since the scene with Ferris on the radio talk show were supposed to be in the movie but were cut at the 11th hour due to the Challenger Shuttle explosion.

Another movie were the director talks about how the deleted scenes/outtakes were just SO hilarious is Frank Oz on Bowfinger! Again, very annoying! Posted Image
