    Did anyone buy the collector's version with the pop up display etc? Is it worth the extra $$$? Also is it letterbox or fullscreen? Amazon indicates fullscreen and 800.com says letterbox and they both only show one collector's edition.

    I'd suggest you skip this one over, as it's fullscreen only.

    Amen to that, Better yet, skip buying this movie and just rent it (if you can find a widescreen copy for rent).

    .....or buy both the widescreen and the popup book, and use the FF version as a frisbie. [​IMG]

    This movie was crap, but I did see this package in a store and thought it looked pretty cool, it almost looks like an 8-inch laserdisc cover! They screwed up putting the pan-and-scan version in this, in any case.

    Can anyone explain why the costco site says the limited edition with extras is widescreen (1.85:1) and enhanced for 16x9 TV's?
