    A favorite of mine that I would like to see as a special edition. Will Warner Brothers ever update this one.....this year maybe?

    The term "SE" can only apply to this film if they do a Graham Greene commentary!

    It would be great to have this one as an SE. I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Very fun film. I'd love a commentary with Mel Gibson, James Garner, Jodie Foster and the director for this one. It'll probably never happen though.

    Is the current transfer as poor as I hear?

    I would buy this in a heartbeat, especially if Graham Greene was involved in the commentary.

    Poor transfer? It has been a while since I've watched my copy of it, but last time I did watch it, I dont remember thinking the transfer was poor. I would say its consistent with Warners typical 16x9 transfers.

    The transfer isn't too bad, but I have seen better. Sound is not 5.1, just 2 channel Dolby surround.
    This great comedy cries out for an SE, with a new transfer and multiple commentaries, especially one by the cast.

    I also love this movie, and would replace my current copy with a S.E if it came out...in fact, I think I'll watch it right now...

    A Graham Greene commentary would be good for Maverick. But I'd especially like to see one by Randy Newman, who composed the score. On Randy's commentary for Pleasantville, he had some very interesting yet unfavorable things to say about his experience working with the Maverick director, calling him "Dickwad Donner." You could be certain that his commentary would not be dull. [​IMG]

    Better yet, put Newman and Donner in the same room
    at the same time and let them go at it.[​IMG]
    I've been thinking about getting this as a Wal-Mart
    cheapie ($9.44), but I'm holding out for a special
    edition.

    My opinion is as unchanged as it was in 2002...I would love an SE re-release of this title.

    Wasn't this announced as an HD-DVD launch title? I think I'll just wait for that.
