    I just found the orginal theatrical cut on LD & picked it up just in case. I haven't seen the film yet & was wondering which version is better?
    From reviews i've read,while the changes are small,most prefered the original version over the DC.
    I don't have a LD player yet,but plan on getting one sometime & could go and buy or rent the dvd,but may wait on that.
    Hopeflly Universal will release both versions someday...hey that'd make a real worthy Ultimate Edition,than there current UE crap they have,lol.

    I've beaten this horse before, but since you asked....I'm stickin' with my LD.

    There are other Coen duplications in my collection, P&S LDs that were followed by WS LDs, but the reworking of Blood Simple that resulted in just kissing the original goodbye really irritated me. I ain't buying that DVD.

    If anyone can educate me about how much picture is lost on the LD version, I'd like to know.
