    The Bits and DavisDVD are reporting that SEs of Desperado and El Mariachi, as well as a 2-pack of both, will come out on 8/26. No specs though.

    I'm hoping it will have the directors cut of Desperado with the final shootout! Does Columbia do Unrated or NC-17?

    So this is the fourth release of Desperado. How many releases does it take to get it right? I'm guessing this is to cash in on Once Upon A Time In Mexico.

    The Superbit version of Desperado improved on the video and audio quality of the previous editions. How can the new SE improve or even retain the same transfer of the Superbit version? They will need to put the movie only on one disc and extras on a second - we're not sure they are going to do that, are we?

    I am looking forward to El Mariachi SE though!

    Meh, I've got the old double-pack, that's good enough.

    Count me in as a buyer if they put out this DC of "Desperado".

    Somewhere I read where the Superbit of Desperado was the best looking of all the SB titles, at least at the time, for being truly mastered from a high definition source.

    I'd like to get Desperado. I never got any of the previous releases, because as I recall they were all more or less bare-bones. Hopefully this SE will feature a commentary or two, and be uncut or have deleted scenes.

    As good as that mythic final shoot-out may be, I think Desperado is just fine as it is, but the shoot-out as an unrated extra would be a nice touch. The original double-pack is bloody good value IMO, although the PAL version's picture is far superior to the NTSC dvd. And I heard somewhere that the new Mariachi SE will have the same extras as the original double-pack version, only the movie will have a Spanish 5.1 track instead of 2.0. So I ain't getting too excited about that one.
