    From The Digital Bits:
    Also noted in the issue are The Hitcher 2, TimeCop 2 and a Fast and the Furious: Tripped Out re-release from Universal...


    Wait a minute. What could possibly be put on a Fast and the Furious re-release besides shameless EPK stuff for the sequel?

    A crappy "Full Screen" Pan & Scam version maybe [​IMG] I will not be re-buying this disc. As it is now I only use it to show of my speaker system. I hate the movie.

    I liked Fast and the Furious and since the original DVD has great picture, superb sound and a slew of good extras I don't see myself purchasing it again.

    I think this one is pure marketing for the sequel and nothing more.

    It will most likely be a full screen version that you would have to be "Tripped Out" in order to see! [​IMG]

    Will this version of the film be the one with a plot and good acting?

    Sorry, I couldn't resist [​IMG]

    It seems a lot of people rag on this movie, the sad thing is that most of the people that say it sucks will be throwing down their $7.50 to see the sequel opening weekend. I actually enjoyed this film very much. What a concept, a movie about cars that actually shows cars and racing and hot chicks. Yes, the acting was not great, plot was ridiculous and every car having that neon glow made me want to puke, but still very entertaining and a great dvd to show off your home theater. But a re-release? What could possibly make this disc any better? This is just a marketing hype to the sequel. I am sick of all of this special edition re-release stuff. Unless the picture quality is a lot better or the use of a full bit rate DTS audio track is used I will pass on all re-releases. I'll just wait for hd-dvd.

    Come on Chad, Don't you want to hear Paul Walker say, " I need NOS." again? I hear he say's it at least twice in the sequel.[​IMG]
