Superbit Edition with 16x9, DD 5.1, DD 2.0, DTS 5.1
Street Date: 5/20/03 SRP: $26.95
Nice, what about a regular version?
This is the same as the Panic Room Superbit. Perhaps it didn't start out that way (pulled special features), and Sony wanted a boost in sales anyway. They play this double, triple, and quadruple dipping FAR TOO OFTEN!!
The proof is in the video transfer and bitrate.
What a busy cover (and not even Superbit-style). Why can't there be a SE version out the same day? Barebones is barebones. But maybe that's good. 5/20 shapes out to be a painfull day with Dances with Wolves, Windtalkers, 25th Hour... and that's just a week later after X-Files Season 7.
This is a definite purchase for me.
Busy 2 week span with the release of Miller's Crossing, Barton Fink, Talk To Her and The People vs. Larry Flynt.
Now where the hell is Punch-Drunk Love??!!!!
Actually the cover art is pretty good (it could stand to be a little less busy) but at least it isn't the three freaking huge craniums of the main actors.
May 20, 2003:
Cheers: The Complete First Season
Dances With Wolves: Special Edition
Dark Angel: The Complete First Season
Frasier: The Complete First Season
Sex & the City: The Complete Fourth Season
Star Trek: Nemesis
Windtalkers: Director's Edition
And I thought May 21, 2002 was a huge day:
Memento: Limited Edition
Sex & the City: The Complete Third Season
Something tells me that cover-art will change. They will have to put an announcement for Chris Cooper winning an Oscar.
Definite purchase -- regardless of whether or not a subsequent special edition is in the works. Favorite movie of 2002 here.
That's the freakin' hugest awards banner I've ever seen. I'm glad they kept the original poster art, though. Good stuff that.
I don't have any doubt that there is a special edition on the way.
This is a movie I didn't care for at the theaters because it kind of lost me towards the end but I always enjoy these type films at home for some reason so I'll be picking this one up as well....rent anyway.
It's a rent for me as I was one of the few that really Hated Being john Malkovich.
It seemed to fade out at the end to me as well. A great beginning, good middle, and poor ending.
That said, I enjoyed the first 2/3 enough to buy...
Just checking, but....
You're supposed to hate the ending. You got that, right?
I find the comments about hating the ending funny since many of my friends said the same thing which completely misses the point of the film. Of course the funniest comment I heard was a friend of mine said he hated the whole movie because it was slow and boring but loved the ending because it was exciting and filled with drugs car crashes etc.
When I first saw it I didn't care for the ending either. I thought it was too traditional. Then someone explained to me that the reason why it turned into a traditional, violent movie towards the end is because Kaufman went to McKee's course. After that point in the movie, his writing and Jonze's movie becomes a typical Hollywood flick.
I almost had to slap myself in the forehead. Of course! Duh. After I saw it a second time, the movie made more sense because I remembered more things Kaufman said.
What took me a couple viewings to get was the whole twin thing came out of Charlie telling Donald that using split personalities in his script was the most overused screenwriting cliche.
LOL, Benson. That's another example. The movie is a like a mirror reflecting itself into another mirror. There's a lot of layers. I read an early draft of the script recently and it differes slightly from the movie. For one, Kaufman jerks off even more in the script, if you can believe that. Olreans puts the gun to herself after Larouche dies at the end. There's a sequence in which Darwin and Aristotle get into a bloody fight. Crazy stuff. Forget McKee's writing courses, I think Adaptation is the perfect movie to see for a writer.
