    THE BOONDOCK SAINTS: SPECIAL EDITION (1999)
    Willem Dafoe. Fox, wide 2.35:1/16x9, DD 5.1 EX, $26.98, 5/23/2006. view cover
    Supplements: • Original Unrated Version of Boondock Saints • Audio Commentaries from writer/director Troy Duffy and actor Billy Connolly • Deleted Scenes and Outtakes • Printable Script

    Excellent! This movie is a guilty pleasure of mine, and the current DVD has one of the worst transfers I've seen. Shame they couldn't have released it to coincide with this year's St. Patricks Day.

    Pity they didn't team it with "Overnight". It's little wonder Duffy hasn't worked since.

    In another thread I read that Duffy was, shall we say, difficult to work with or even be around. Ah, I don't care, so long as I get this movie with a decent anamorphic transfer.

    I never saw this, but after seeing "Overnight", I really want to! Glad to see this is coming, as I was about to pick up the current version.

    Think I'll be double-dipping on this one, if only to finally get a decent transfer of the "Cat Scene."

    "You know, you Irish cops are perking up. That's two sound theories in one day, neither of which deal with abnormally-sized men. Kind of makes me feel like Riverdancing."

    Heh, as a cat lover and owner of three of the little furballs, that's the one scene in the movie I cringe at everytime I watch. Poor little guy. [​IMG]

    Just so yall know, there was an ad for this in the most recent issue of Premiere Magazine. It had the cover art, etc. and also announced that it would indeed be a STEELBOOK like Appleseed, etc. Sounds like a nice little set for a Movie that garnered little fan fare before coming to DVD. I can't wait.

    I want to get this, but after seeing "Overnight," I don't like the idea of Troy Duffy getting any of my money.

    He won't be, lol. From what I understood beyond all of his other snafu's he also did not get any rights to a percentage of the Home Video income.

    Got my copy today, finally. The new transfer is soooo much better than that old letterboxed piece of shite on the old DVD. [​IMG]
