    Just got my $15 Criterion Spartacus from overstock.com and got A Few Good Men SE for my birthday a few weeks ago. Any reason to keep the older releases of these two? Anything on them that the new ones are missing? I'm keeping my old copy of Holy Grail because it's the original cut of the film & the SE has added footage. That's kind of what I mean.

    The Universal Spartacus has a different sound mix with the dialog pulled in somewhat towards the center (although still stereo). Some people like it better, but I'm not one of them.

    For the general consumer, no need to hold on to the Universal Spartacus. But for the serious Stanley Kubrick obsessive, it's a keeper. I still have my copy, and don't intend to let go of it, even though I'll almost always screen the Criterion edition.
