Nice review. Hopefully someone will eventually compare the previous releases to this one. If the PQ is really improved then I might jump at upgrading but even then the previous release (which I own) still looks good.
Sam, nice review. Having never bought this on dvd but owning the laser disc, I think this definitely will be in my library soon.
I'm curious to see if the video is improved over the 1st release too.
Its an all new transfer plus apparently has a few scenes integrated into it that were not in any previous release. I never saw it before so cant say how much is new, but it may be enough to push a few of you with previous editions into the buy column =) Wish Uni would do day and date DVDs and HD-DVDs, I'm really looking forward to see how this one goes head to head eventually. Sam
Ooooh, didn't even know this was coming! I'll gladly double dip on this one.
The previous DVD already had about 12 minutes of scenes not in the theatrical cut. Are you sure they're not just talking about the same added scenes? -Lyle J.P.
It is the very same cut as the previous extended cut DVD, I just finished it, being a very big fan of the film. It is very much worth the double dip. It has all the same features as the original, but it also adds deleted scenes and outakes. The audio is now 5.1(instead of the weak stereo track)and the picture transfer is sharper,less EE,almost no grain now, and has lost the nicks and scratches in the added scenes.All in all a great re-release.
Thanks for the corrections Derek D.
Thanks Derek. You sold me on upgrading. Is there an exact listing of what the added scenes are? IMDB is very vague on what is added.
The Extended Version is the TV Cut -- also the movie's original rating is PG-13.
Sam, I am very happy to see that after all these years you discovered Fried Green Tomatoes. It is an amazing film -- certainly amongst my favorites. I own the original release and question the need to upgrade. Really, I can't see this transfer being significantly better than the old, and, I am certain an HD release is inevitable.
Ron, you are welcome to borrow this copy if you want to compare! Sam
