    Sorry if this has been covered already, but I tried searching and couldn't find an answer.

    I already own the original DVD of Bull Durham. Is the video quality on the new release significantly better than the original? I don't really care all that much for extras, but would double-dip if the video quality was noticeably better.

    I checked out multiple DVD reviews (of both discs) and could only find one that compared the two releases - and that guy preferred the video on the original! Even the HTF review thread never had anyone chime in with a comparison.

    Thanks in advance for any guidance.

    I thought I'd bump this up once in hopes of finding someone who can give me a comparison of the video quality on the two releases.

    Anyone?

    I am also interested in comparing the original Bull Durham to the new SE. I got the original in the new Grand Slam box set and thought the SE was going to be in there (also includes Pride of the Yankees, Jackie Robinson Story, and Eight Men Out).

    Is it worth forking out the extra $15 to upgrade to the SE for Bull Durham?

    I remember comparing these myself. I was surprised to find much stronger colors on the original release. Apart from that, I think they were similar.

    But the color difference was striking.

    To 'follow on' from the previous post...

    Does anyone know if the currently available version from MGM has been downgraded or is it a separate release to the (deleted?) SE? The version I ordered from Amazon a couple of weeks back (live in the UK) has arrived and just has the two commentaries (I assume, I haven't opened it) and nothing else.

    I found an MGM press release in dvdfile.com archives that said the initial release of the SE would have limited edition packaging (ie the baseball sleeve) but would then be available without the sleeve. Yet the UK comparison site dvdcompare.net lists 2 versions, the commentaries only version and the SE.
