Is there a DVD of "Scream" with an anamorphic widescreen transfer readily available?
In R1? Don't think so...
Do you know what would be nice? A decent region 1 DVD release of Scream. Think we'll eventually get it? I think we will, but we'll only be able to buy it with the other 2 (maybe 3, they're going to make another one) packaged with it.
Get the Japanese release. It's the Unrated version and its anamorphic.
is it NTSC?
Japan is R2, but is NTSC.
and its dts ^
I would not be shocked to see a 10th Anniversary Special Edition at some point next year... I would LOVE a better R1 release, but I do have one region-free player, so I might have to grab the Japanese disc.
I'm not sure if a hd master is available in region 1. The reason I say that is Scream has been on the Starz HD channeln but only in SD and pan & scan. They are usually good about showing a movie in hd if a master is available. I would upgrade my copy in a second, but only if it is the uncut version.
The Japanese is supposed to NOT have the best quality. At the moment, the Korean R3 boxed set version doesn't have DTS but is the Unrated version and is supposedly the best.
The standalone Korean release of the first film (now available again from koreandvds.com after being sold out for a little while) is also the unrated version. I own it and can confirm this. Picture quality is very decent, but not perfect. It still provides a terrific alternative to the non-anamorphic R1 transfer. DJ
Isn't the reason the Region 1 release is R-rated because of Mirimax's policy for unrated material? Considering the split from Disney now, I think it's possible we'll get a 10th anniversary re-release next fall...possibly in anamorphic widescreen, and uncut.
Damin, this one?
no, this was disney's fault as they didn't wanted any unrated/nc-17 material released under their flag. but that can all change as they are now a stand alone studio.
From my understanding after reading a lengthy aricle about the split in Entertainment weekly, Disney will still hold the Mirimax name and entire catalog. It was really a split between Disney and the Weinsteins, but they don't get to take all of their films with them when they leave.
Didn't Miramax already break the "no unrated" policy with their special edition of TRAINSPOTTING? I wouldn't be surprised at all if an unrated "10th Anniversary Edition" was released next year. I just wonder if Wes Craven will want to go near anything Miramax/Dimension related again after the horrific experience he had making CURSED for them. Vincent
He's already doing Project Greenlight... DJ
What about the upcoming Sling Blade Director's Cut ( Is that going to be Unrated?) Also what about the Bad(der) Santa release that was Unrated?
Despite saying "unrated" on the front, it was actually rated R. DJ
