    ...other than the ahem, "superbit" (aka "barebones to suit the rental chains") version?
    I know it's released by Columbia so there will probably be 6 more releases of it before Christmas and I've probably just answered my own question but... help!

    I'm sure there will be. Such an intelligent film certainly deserves more than a barebones release.

    I think the Susan Orlean website mentioned a while back that she was helping create special features, so based on that, I'd say an SE is likely.

    I bet Columbia is going to re-release all Superbit DVDs as Super-duperbit editions. Then don't forget the mega-super-duperbit edition. [​IMG]

    The new release is barebones? I don't have to navigate through a bunch of crap just to watch the movie?

    I am so there...

    I love Adaptation, however is a special edition of this movie really necessary? I mean, the movie is essentially about the making of itself. Would bonus materials really be relevant?

    Anyways, Being John Malkovich really did not contain many worthwhile special features, so this one may not either. I could easily see Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman being the "let the film speak for itself" type. Particularly with Adaptation being the type of film that it is.

    Yeah, it would be nice to have some features such as interviews, documentaries, etc. Adaptation is such a fascinating, original film that you just have to wonder what went into its production. I would like to hear Charlie Kaufman's thoughts on the film and the screenplay, but Kaufman and Jonze don't seem to be big on interviews. Spike Jonze would probably just puke again.

    I would like an audio commentary by Charlie & Donald Kaufman.

    That would be funny to have "their" comments edited together.

    well i just watched it and i dont know that i think the video quality was any better then a normal release of any warner bros. dvd.(for comparison)

    sound seemed mostly in the front, very rare back surround effects.
