    The laserdisc has some nice extras which include an directors commentary and an behind the scenes feature. I think that Criterion owns the right to them. I own the laserdisc and the DVD. The DVD looks much better than the laserdisc but I think the dvd is non-anamorphic and no extras. This is one of my favorite films. I would love to see Billy Bob write a sequel.

    Has anyone seen "Swing Blade"? A hilarious cross between Swingers and Sling Blade.

    I am curious if any new rumors are floating around about this title. I saw it in Best buy on 4-13 and almost bought it, but I would rather wait on an SE if it is coming.

    I still haven't heard of anything. I ended up buying the current release which looks pretty good (non-anamorphic). If you don't want to spend too much money on it, but still want it, I suggest getting this title though a Columbia House enrollment.

    Those who want a "Sling Blade" SE reissue should direct your attentions to Buena Vista, which owns the movie under the Miramax label. Requests for a Vista Series release would be appropriate, I believe!

    "Now you know I can't so much as eat around a midget or a piece of antique furniture."

    "I thought the dot, dot, dot came between medulla and oblongata."

    "Randy, you tunin' son of a bitch!"

    OK, back to topic: I'd love to see a rerelease. I remember seeing "Some Folks Call It A Slingblade" on A&E awhile back - foul language and all. I can't quite get used to Molly Ringwald in that role...
