The Coen Brothers deliver a sizzling and supercharged action-thriller with No Country for Old Men, based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy. Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin), a down-on-his-luck
Vietnam vet, stumbles across an illicit fortune and decides to keep it, setting off an unstoppable chain of violence. When Moss discovers a drug deal gone bad in the West Texas desert, he decides to keep the two million dollars he finds there and hit the road. In short order, both Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), the local sheriff, and Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), one of the most frighteningly amoral psychopaths in film history, are on his trail and Moss is scrambling to stay one step ahead of the law—and avoid a gruesome fate at Chigurh’s hands.

Nope. No sale.

If they think I'm gonna double dip a $25 BD, they are crazy. I don't care how good the special features are (and these don't even look that compelling).

I'm happy with my original release. Bonus content does little for me anymore.

That being said, those who have not picked up the film on BD yet should go after this release, as it looks pretty solid.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Hadn't gotten around to buying this yet--now I'll have options. Either I spring for the new edition or, if the old one's price drops significantly, I'll grab that instead.

If I was in your shoes, I'd go for the SE unless there was an incredible sale on the first one. As it stands, I've already got the first release so there's no chance that I'll rebuy it already.
