    The first is a kid's show, and a fave of my wife's. The other 3 are classic war films. I certainly am interested in #4, since it's going to be 16x9!!! [​IMG]
    • 10/30 Dot and the Kangaroo
    • 11/06 Guadalcanal Diary
    • 11/06 Halls of Montezuma
    • 11/06 Patton - Special Edition

    Cool, eh? All info comes from Image Entertainment's site. Have a great labor day!

    Ummm...
    There already is a Patton:SE, and it's already anamorphic.
    Could this date represent a price drop?

    You're referring to this one, right?
    [​IMG]
    I have this one. I forgot it's anamorphic, since the box doesn't mention that it is. But now that you mention it, I recall after it came out everyone said, "Hey! Surprise! This in anamorphic!".
    But the old one is UPC Code #0 86162 12579 9; $24.98
    The new title is showing UPC#0 24543 02634 1; $19.98, per Image Entertainment. No cover scan there, so I can't tell for sure that it is a different one. I assumed it was, but now that you mention it is showing the exact same supplements.
    So I guess you're right, and it's the same one with a price drop. I wonder why the different UPC code, though...that's what convinced me it was new (plus 16x9, which isn't new after all).
    Sorry...my bad!

    Fox has released a series "War Films" usually around Memorial Day or Veterans Day the last couple of years and this coming Veterans Day is no different. Also, announced for released on November 6th is the following titles:
    [*]Young Lions[*]Wing and A Prayer[*]Von Ryan's Express (re-release)[*]Twelve O'Clock High (re-release)[*]The Longest Day (re-release)[*]Thin Red Line (re-release)
    Well, since I already own all the re-releases, I'm going to pick up "Halls of Montezuma", "Guadacanal Diary", "Young Lions", and "Wing and a Prayer". All excellent WWII films! I'm like a pig in "you know what". There's no better news for any classic film buff then to hear about release dates on such movie titles. Thank you Fox and here's hoping for future releases of these "War Films" owned by Fox:
    [*]The Immortal Sergeant[*]Crash Dive[*]A Walk in the Sun[*]Lifeboat

    Hey, Marc...revisiting that Patton deal. With help from the VideoTropic web site, I found out that Image is listed the old UPC code as "Patton (Special Edition/ Old Version) Discontinued DVD ", and then separately has a "new release" listing for "Patton (Special Edition) 11/06/2001 DVD". The one listed as discontinued contains the cover art I show in my previous post, while the new listing shows no picture at all.
    It might after all be the same item with a new UPC code, by then why the elaborate process? Something smells fishy here!

    Does anyone know if the Longest Day re-release will be anamorphic? I have my fingers and toes crossed.

    Was it more or did the Patton:SE have terrible sound transfer. On my system it almost sounded real static.

    Isn't VON RYAN EXPRESS just released some months ago?PATTON gets a re-release?With whats in?THIN RED LINE...anything in this re-release new?
    "...something's fishy here..."
    Thats what i have in mind too,maybe this upcoming re-release is a WW2 boxset of these 3 movies consist of a new edition of the PATTON,with the DTS release of TTRL and the previously released VRE.

    Patton sounds great on my end. There is no need for a re-release, the current disc is perfect
