    I already have Sense and Sensibility, The Ice Storm, CTHD, and Eat Drink Man Woman. However, there are two more that I want.

    1. Does anyone know if a dvd for The Wedding Banquet is planned?
    2. What's the OAR for Pushing Hands? The current DVD is Fullscreen.
    3. Also, how's Ride With the Devil? would you recommend it?

    Count me as another who wonders what ever happened to
    a DVD release of The Wedding Banquet which
    was the film with the largest profit precentage vs total
    cost of any film released its year.

    It is also a fantastic film.

    Have not seen the DVD to Ride With the Devil, but for the film itself, I'd give it a recommendation. This is not one of those action packed, melodramatic Civil War pics. It deals with the irony and illogical choices that make neighbors fight each other. It's a very personal film, not trying to deal with broad political landscapes.

    I believe the OAR for Pushing Hands is 1.33:1, as it was shot on 16mm. It's a decent dvd and a good film (not as poslished as later efforts though and the woman who plays the wife is WAY annoying).

    I thought Ride With the Devil was interesting but if you aren't up on the history of the border skirmishes/tensions between Kansas & Missouri during the Civil War (like me), it's little confusing. It will be much more enjoyable if you do a little homework first (I did some afterwards, which also worked OK). Jewel, predictably, blows.
