    I am watching Scarface for the 55th plus time, maybe even more. I tell you, if you wanna play rough I'll play witch you, come on. What is the deal? I cannot believe that one of the best gangster movies of all time has not gotten the deserved special treatment that it deserves. Where is the special edition????? Please help me understand this. If somebody does not listen, I might have to say "Hello to my little friend." Excuse me, but what the F!*K!, This is the baddest gangster flick of all time, along with the Godfather and Goodfella's. Can we "PLEASE" get a special edition, Remastered with an anamorphic, DTS dvd?????? I can tell you. a lot of purchases would be made. Thanks!!!!!!!

    I think Universal has gotten about a million complaints about the previous DVD. All you can do is wait, I guess.

    Universal are re-releasing Scarface in the UK at the end of May - Blackstar Link

    The extras listed are:
    "'Making of Scarface' (50 mins); outtakes; production notes; trailer; cast and filmmakers' biographies."

    These seem to be the same as the existing disc.

    At this point I would settle for picking up the current R1 disc. However even this seems to be out of print as none of the stores around me seem to carry it.

    To James Reader:

    The Blackstar thing is strange: Same extras; same sound mix; same PRICE. Strange.

    This film is ripe for a region 1 SE with DTS, commentary and most importantly: NEW, FLAWLESS ANAMORPHIC TRANSFER.

    I can't believe how bad the transfer is on th current disc. It's washed out and ugly. Universal has a lot of titles that need anamorphic treatment like The Thing and a few more I can't think of so I don't think we'll see this for a while.

    Gorden, Columbia would have released the old Scarface under their (now expired) Universal licencing agreement.

    Universal themselves are now just starting to re-release old Columbia licenced titles themselves. I notice The Mummy was just put through the BBFC again recently - and this too seems to consist of the same extras as the current Columbia R2 release(s).

    Hopefully, Universal will master a better transfer for the re-release, but I doubt it. This is Universal UK we are talking about [​IMG]

    Well, considering that site also has the Star Wars Original Trilogy on DVD for sale also, I'd have to say it's a bootleg. Also the "notice" on the bottom of their page:

    When I look through their other items, i can see many of them don't match the actal US releases. The site is bootleg central.

    A local video store went to a Universal promotion meeting and was told that the 25th Anniversary Edition will be released on October 21, 2003. He has had a sign up advertising this for over 3 weeks.
