I am a sucker for re-releases. I simply have to have the latest and greatest version that is out on DVD. In most cases when the re-releases include new anamorphic transfers (for titles that were previously non-anamorphic) or RSDL versions (for titles that were previously flippers), the DVD is definitely worth upgrading. The extra features are like icing on the cake. When I look at my "to-buy" list of rumored 2002 releases, I see many more re-releases than titles that have never been on DVD before. I don't know if it is a good sign (is my wish list of movies that are not on DVD dwindling ?) but here's my list : Goodfellas: SE (Badly needs both anamorphic and RSDL treatment. I hope Scorsese gets a chance to bless this one). Raging Bull: SE (needs anamorphic treatment. Hope this gets Scorsese participation too). Usual Suspects: SE (needs anamorphic treatment). Pulp Fiction: SE (needs anamorphic treatment). Reservoir Dogs: SE (needs anamorphic treatment. The director's cut should be interesting too). Blade Runner: SE (not sure what the features will be). Fargo: SE (Given the Coens' lack of interest in DVD extras, not sure what to expect here. The previous release was pretty good). Great Escape: SE (This classic deserves better than a badly cropped non-anamorphic transfer with a weird aspect ratio. The new version is supposed to come out in May 2002). Sleuth (Amazon has this listed with a release date of 2/5/2002. Hopefully this is the Anchor Bay 30th anniversary release with new anamorphic transfer and RSDL coding). (Of course I left out Escape from NY: SE, True Lies: 5-star Collection and Speed: 5-star Collection that are not on my personal wish list).
