    Just daydreaming here but...

    Wouldn't it be great if Warner were to manufacture DVD cases for JFK, similar to their new packaging for 2DVD editions, like the ones for The Mission, Giant, Robin Hood, etc, and replace the unpractical packaging in which JFK was originally released?

    Besides JFK, did any other Warner 2DVD titles got this crappy packaging?

    Funnily enough, the German R2, which was only released late last year, comes in exactly that type of packaging.

    The Oliver Stone set is the one to suffer

    Frankly, JFK could do with a new SE. I know that may sound like anathema to many, but it is a 205-minute film with DD5.1, commentary all on a DVD-9 - good transfer, but split over 2 sides, it could look a lot better.

    And what with this year being the 40th year since JFK was assassinated...

    The packaging really is mediocre. I don't mind snappers, but to put a second disc into the inner cardboard sleeve is just as queer as hell. The front sleeve bulges due to this. It's not the best.

    Nevermind, in November, we get the legendary, The Trial Of Lee Harvey Oswald on DVD, coupled with The Other Side of Bonnie and Clyde, curtosy of Image Entertainment! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The packaging is not mediocre. The packaging is awful.

    I realise; I own this edition also. [​IMG]

    Good DVD set. Actually, maybe it doesn't need a new edition, afterall.

    Definintely one of the better SE's out there. The only thing that would make it more appealing would be a better package than that snapper case. And whoever thought that the bonus disc should be inserted in a sleeve should be boiled in oil - a really dumb decision. The 2-disc cases for DVDs like Star Wars: Episode I or II or T2 Extreme are much better.
