    The Coen Brothers deliver a sizzling and supercharged action-thriller with No Country for Old Men, based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy. Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin), a down-on-his-luck
    Vietnam vet, stumbles across an illicit fortune and decides to keep it, setting off an unstoppable chain of violence. When Moss discovers a drug deal gone bad in the West Texas desert, he decides to keep the two million dollars he finds there and hit the road. In short order, both Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), the local sheriff, and Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), one of the most frighteningly amoral psychopaths in film history, are on his trail and Moss is scrambling to stay one step ahead of the law—and avoid a gruesome fate at Chigurh’s hands.

    Nope. No sale.

    If they think I'm gonna double dip a $25 BD, they are crazy. I don't care how good the special features are (and these don't even look that compelling).

    I'm happy with my original release. Bonus content does little for me anymore.

    That being said, those who have not picked up the film on BD yet should go after this release, as it looks pretty solid.

    Hadn't gotten around to buying this yet--now I'll have options. Either I spring for the new edition or, if the old one's price drops significantly, I'll grab that instead.

    If I was in your shoes, I'd go for the SE unless there was an incredible sale on the first one. As it stands, I've already got the first release so there's no chance that I'll rebuy it already.
