    Okay, thedigitalbits says the El Mariachi DVD is out tomorrow, but I can't find any stores that will be selling it. I did a search on dvd Basen, but only one norweigian site managed to do a review, but unfortunately I can't read norweigian.

    Does anyone else have any info?

    Thanks,
    Chris.

    I've made a customised Desperado/El Mariachi 2 disc set. Disc 1 is the Desperado Superbit, and disc 2 is the flipper of Desperado and El Mariachi. I have them both in a clear 2 disc amaray case, with the superbit art on the outside, and flipper art on the inside. All within the Superbit slipcase.

    A customised "Ultimate Edition" if you will.

    Great discs if you ask me...extras-wise for both, and the dts on the Superbit of Desperado is awesome.

    Those are 2 of my favourite commentary tracks too...

    It's a pity The next in the series apparently sucks...

    Where did you hear the next one sucks?? I would think it is still going through editing. Oh well, after Spy Kids 1 + 2 I'll keep my expectations low...

    I read it at imdb.com
    Apparently the preview screenings went really bad, so hopefully it will be re-edited to follow suit, and hopefully it will be worth paying to see...
    I still have faith in Rodriguez though, but this film will be the clincher as far as that goes...

    My question exactly -- the efilmcritic.com release schedule has an El Mariachi SE DVD scheduled for today, with commentary tracks, etc. No sign on dvdpricesearch.com

    I have no interest in Desperado, so this is the one that I want... Any info is appreciated.

    The Desperado/El Mariachi disc is WAY too expensive in Canada, and I already have the Desperado: Superbit DVD. And if you look on thedigitalbits.com under cover art you can see the cover for the new El Mariachi DVD.

    I got the El Mariachi/Desperado set at a Blockbusters in Canada for about 25.00 (surely a pricing mistake in my favor [​IMG] ). Otherwise, I agree, way too expensive in Canada, if you can even find it.

    Any specs released about the new El Mariachi disc? Will it include the English dubbed track that was inexplicably missing from the double DVD? While I like the Spanish language track, I would like to introduce this film to people that don't like "reading movies".

    Also, I hope this doesn't sound blasphemous, but will the disc include a full frame version? After all, the film was shot in 16mm, and the matting on the previous disc just seems a bit cramped to me.

    God, never thought I would be asking to see a full frame, dubbed DVD!

    I am also interested in this supposed new release of El Mariachi to add to my Superbit version of Desperado. I noticed it under the new DVD cover art on The Digital Bits, too.

    Has anyone found this title available anywhere online? It's not listed at DVD Price Search.

    No one?? Bill Hunt even?? He still doesn't have the pic linked to a retailer either. I'm just wondering about the validity or history of this release!

    It's just a re-release of the same El Mariachi that's on the Desperado flipper.

    An attempt to cash-in on Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

    It's out, at least according to the release date. Columbia's release date was 2/4.
