As per DavisDVD. Jewel of the Nile: SE also available. Both anamorphic widescreen and 5.1, both with many deleted scenes and featurettes, and JOTN gets a commentary track (as opposed to one by Zemeckis on RTS).

Excellent, I'll get both. I've been putting off acquiring the current releases because they were not anamorphic. It'll be nice to get some extras too.

WOW, the previous releases on region 2 DVD UK, where just Dolby Stereo 4:2:4, now that’s good news, I wonder if the surrounds will be in “splits” or just monaural?

"Black Rain" was filmed in “Super 35mm” and released in 2.35:1 scope, I took my copy of it back to “Our Price” record stores the same day! believing the surrounds where at fault, whoops, that’s how the mixed them, the surrounds only become "active" in certain parts in the film, that’s the deal with 70mm six-track Dolby Stereo discrete!

So if they are going to re-release “Black Rain” 1989, I’ll be buying a copy, nominated for best sound!

and if you care...

I've confirmed with the reviewer that RTS does NOT come with its original theatrical trailer but TJOTN DOES...weird...

I guess that shoots down the idea that this would be 5.1.

We reviewed both Romancing the Stone and Jewel of the Nile on the latest edition of The DVD Marquee.

Just got back from CC where both movies can be had for $20 total (apparently the boxset is $24?).

Very impressed with the packaging, the slipcovers are very nice and the present of a multi-page booklet is almost unheard of nowadays.

Very nice...hope the discs are equally well done.

I'm the dork who'll pick the new edition up and still hold onto the original release just to have the darn theatrical trailer. Why do so many studios drop those!?

Um, right. Why do you have to turn every discussion into some audiophile gobblety-gook? Posted Image

What is the practice or method used in creating the slipcover called? I'm talking about having glossy parts on an otherwise matte cardboard?

It's called spot varnish.
