    I was looking for this film at dvd empire...there are a couple different versions.
    Which one is the best?
    I see they have a SE coming on 11-6, but it retails for $60 (on sale for $48)!!! That seems very high. Whats the deal with the SE?

    I'm still wondering why Best Buy won't carry this disc. I've seen the new version at many CD stores, but I've been to 4 Best Buys in 2 states and none have it.

    I bought the "2001" box set also from Creative Design Art and was thuroughly disappointed. I mean, it has cool stuff, but the Kubrick box set edition had all the extras. This one just came with cool stuff. So, you must decide how much those extra things are worth to you. The book, the senitype, the cd, etc. 2001: extra features = $20.00, 2001: no features, but cool stuff = $45.00
    Probably the same with FMJ.
    just a thought to consider.

    Matt,
    I was just at the Best Buy in San Carlos,CA yesterday and I saw FMJ sitting on the shelf. Maybe it's just really popular in Georgia.
