    We asked Criterion to pick it up, and rumor has it that Disney has created a high-definition master. We can only hope they were successful

    I want this now! Ed Wood is my favorite Tim Burton flick - let's hope he does a commentary...
    ------------------
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    Yes, please give us Ed Wood on DVD. I love this movie. I also hope they give it some good thoughtful extras (could care less about promo stuff) but I would definitely pick up a bare bones copy as well. It's about the movie after all. And if the movie is this good [​IMG]

    I think this film made about $14 at the box office.
    I think I was one of 2 people who saw this in the theater, the other person being the guy behind me.
    I went to see based on the glowing review from Siskel & Ebert.
    This is such a underrated film and Ive been putting off picking up a VHS copy for like 2 years now, but I dont know how much longer I can wait.
    I remember being furious when I found out it was available on (shudders)DIVX with no plans for DVD and time soon. 2 and 1/2 years later.........
    This is EASILY Tim Burtons best film-and one of my 5 most wanted titles.

    I LOVE THIS MOVIE.

    They've been showing this lately on Encore I believe. I really love this movie. I've watched it twice in the past 2 weeks and will watch it again if it's on.

    Agreed, this is a fantastic film. I can't wait for the dvd release of it. Didn't Martin Landau win an Acedmy award for his performance of Bela Lugosi?
    I just picked up the Plan 9 from Outer Space dvd for the great documentary with some cool interviews. I think the documentary clocks in a little under 2 hours. The dvd was cheap too as the MSRP recently dropped to $14.99.

    This is a must buy for me...not just Tim Burton, but perhaps Johnny Depp's greatest performance

    This is truly a great film. I'm not much of a fan of either director (Wood or Burton - Though Burton is the better of the two [​IMG]) but both have added to the color of Hollywood in their own way.
    Any fan of this film should definitely check out the PLAN 9 FROM OUTERSPACE DVD because the film and the excellent documentary, FLYING SAUCERS OVER HOLLYWOOD, will give an ever deeper appreciation for the subject matter.
    This DVD would be on my "must buy" list.

    There appears to be two versions of Plan 9 (Image & Passport). Can anyone comment on which is better in terms of extras, etc.?
    Thanks

    The IMAGE edition is just fine. Good contrast, sharp image, clear sound. As to when this might surface on DVD - who knows? In the meantime, you can pick up an excellent condition (or even sealed) copy of the laser for ten or fifteen bucks on eBay if you keep checking the listings.

    The Image DVD is the one to have. it looks good (remember this film didn't have the highest production values [​IMG]) and has the great documentary FLYING SAUCERS OVER HOLLYWOOD. You should be able to find this disc for $15 as well. I think its a must have for fans of B-SciFi or cult films in general.
