I love this movie. Very entertaining. And it is Catherine Zeata Jones at her best! Anyway just wanted to let you know that the Superbit release date on it is 09/17. Man September and November are getting very expensive.

I already re-purchased the SE version after selling off my original version. Is this new version superbit or superbit deluxe?

The new version is Superbit Deluxe. I also sold my original for the SE. Again I sold my SE knowing the SB Deluxe was coming out.

I will definitely wait and see what the differences are in PQ and SQ between the two versions but I doubt that I will upgrade again.

I had the very first original that came out. I sold it to buy the SE but never ended up gettin the SE. I am so glad that I didn't. Neil, you asked if it Deluxe. What is the difference?

"Deluxe" has supplements on disc 2, with just the movie in DD/DTS on disc 1. This version will be the 3rd time around for me too (too good a HT showoff movie & a fun one at that to pass up).

The Mask of Zorro - Special Edition does have dts audio. The Superbit Deluxe version will just drop the audio commentary on the first disc and the 4:3 pan & scan version on the second disc. I'm keeping the Special Edition unless they find a way to make the dts soundtrack sound better than it is now.

I got suckered into buy the last SE. The buck stops there for me. It's a great transfer, has an additional commentary track that won't be on the Superbit Deluxe (by the nature of the format) and has decent audio. I have never repurchased a title and don't plan to start with this.

I can't believe we still don't have many classic films on dvd, but we're on our third release of Mask of Zorro. I really like this movie but unless the superbit is a major leap in video quality, I won't be upgrading.

In regards to Superbit titles, the only reason for me to repurchase them would be if I thought there was anything of value added to the set. In the case of this title, the SE already has everything the SBD will have plus the commentary. There is nothing new besides a slightly better picture. I'll pass.

Ditto. The Se has a phenomenal transfer and soundtrack. This film didn't need to be released again. Just another reason Columbia is regarded as ridiculous when it comes to re-releases. I gotta hand it to Columbia/Sony, whatever they are. The milk this SB mess to death.

I do have to say that some of these re-releases on Superbit is getting a little ridiculous. If I did own the SE I would not be buying it, but because I have no version right now, I will definately pick up the Superbit version. Might as well get a little better picture and sound quality. But other movies that I own the normal edition such as Vertical Limit, I won't be purchasing the Superbit edition. I have heard some say that the picture and sound quality on the Superbit title is definately something you will notice but I can't beleive that it can get much better than my standard edition. I know this word is thrown around alot, but the standard edition is reference quality. The picture is beautiful and the sound blows me away. So how much better can the SB be?

I got the original release, but did not spring for the SE. I like this movie enough to go ahead and get the Superbit Deluxe since I didn't get the SE. This'll be my first Superbit DVD. I'll be interested to see if I can tell any difference.

I'm the same way! I'll buy a SB if I don't have that film on DVD. However, they can do those 2-disc DVDs every bit as good as SB DVDs if they wanted to. I'd argue that the Mask of Zorro SE is as good as some SB titles.

[quote] I'd argue that the Mask of Zorro SE is as good as some SB titles. [quote] Yeah, until you compare the SE to the original release and note that some of the fine detail from the previous transfer is not there.

The SuperBit version will simply trade the commentary whilst hopefully restoring the fine detail to the video. I'll take that, along with the ability to play the movie in DTS. Mask Of Zorro Superbit is SOLD. The original version and the SE will be unloaded on the local replay DVD store for $6 each (or at EB for a trade in 2 get one free offer).

Regards,
Dan

Jeff,
I will pick up a Superbit Deluxe "Mask of Zorro" and turf the SE in protest for the studio's inclusion of a Full frame version in the SE. Good coaster material in my book!Posted Image
