    It would be nice to get Rain Man and Fargo out of the damn snapper cases. It would need a commentary, a retrospective documentary, deleted scenes, trailer, anamorphic widescreen and 5.1 Dobly Digital and get rid of the Pan and scan version.

    I have both of these movies and neither of them are in snapper cases.

    For that matter both are already in anamorphic widescreen and 5.1 sound, but it would be nice to have SEs. I believe that they are both scheduled for sometime this year.

    Since when has MGM used snappers?

    MGM used to use snappers. Off the top of my head, a few of the early James Bond discs (Goldeneye comes to mind) were in snappers.

    I've picked up Fargo 3 times. Not one time has it been in a snapper.

    1)Polygram magical "scratch-o-matic" case

    2)Polygram Keepcase

    3)MGM Keepcase

    MGM gave us an anamorphic transfer. Yes, there's a debate as to whether it's any better than the original, but there not about to re-do it anytime soon. Some MGM discs have flipped from snapper to keepcase and back again. Those mostly related to rights switching back to Warner. (Poltergeist, 2001, Grinch/Horton Hears a Who)

    you guys screw the case! I want em with loads of features! Cruise is doing commentarys for vanilla sky and jerry maguire. So why can't he and Hoffman have a seat and talk about five minutes to wapner! And how bout buscemi and mcdermont with the coen brothers doing a commentary for a fargo se. but while you are on the subject snapper cases do suck!

    ps where the hell is my glen garry glen ross dvd?

    I thought I heard rumors about a Fargo SE last year at the MGM chat.

    I'd buy a Fargo SE in a heartbeat, although the current disc is pretty good. I'd upgrade for a commentary or some other behind the scenes stuff.

    I checked and there was no mention of Fargo during the MGM chat (unless this computer screwed up doing a text search).

    Rain,
    I think the rumors were from Dvdfile at Studio Day. Though I could be wrong. [​IMG]
