    English Stereo & English Mono? What's the deal with that, shouldn't it be more like a English 5.1 and a mono? Why would they just remix it up to 2 channels?

    I'm fairly certain that there is an original stereo mix; I would not assume that this is a remix.

    I would have been happy with a movie only DVD version of this great Bakshi classic, so news that Fox took an active role in producing a SE release is enough to warrant... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That's great. This is the last of my personal Top Ten Movies of All Time to finally hit DVD. Looks like the wait will have been worth it.

    So if the orignal mix is stereo than what is the point of the mono soundtrack?

    Maybe there are differences in the mix, like the Star Wars situation.

    This is one it seems I've been waiting forever for, especially considering the vhs is long out of print. It's a great surprise that Fox has seen fit to throw in some extras too and you can't beat that price. Can't wait to own this.

    Lovely, I want one! Now! [​IMG]


    For all you multiregionists, Fire & Ice is available on region 2 in a very nice colorful anamorphic transfer with 2 channel stereo sound and at a very good price.[​IMG]

    Rodney,

    You just gave me an 80's flashback when the UC Theater in Berkeley used to regularly host a midnight double feature with 'Wizards' and 'Heavy Metal' - for which I was only too glad to attend.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    (If you see boxes with red crosses, just right click on each and select properties, then copy the URL address and paste it in a new window - the reason for this is that IMDB does not allow hotlinking on most of their images - sry for the inconvenience)

    Sadly, on a return trip to Berkeley some years ago I discovered to my horror that this incredible traditional single screen theater had closed own... [​IMG]

    At least I'll have the memories, and I will always be grateful for that theater's influence on my passion for films. I suspect in many ways, UC Theater was more a film school than a theater.

    And also, John K.'s revival of Mighty Mouse!
