Why is "Belushi" stuck allllllllllllllllllllllll the way at the bottom? It should be right underneath the title, right? That's where any sane designer would put it.

LOL in the original Belushi is holding a coffee cup and now he's holding a gun. Is someone taking a cheap jab at Spielberg?

Hahaha.. that new cover with "Belushi" in small print at the bottom just cracks me up. Man, talk about completely disrespecting the actor.

Was the original non-anamorphic.

I don't remember. Guess I haven't watched it since I went 16:9. Odd, since I like this movie.

The SE is available for $10.63 at Deepdiscountdvd.com :emoji_thumbsup:

Excellent! Looks like my dad gets another hand-me-down..if he doesn't have the original already.

I bought it.

The 5.1 mix is not very active. It's mostly front heavy to be honest. There wasn't too much dynamic range there. They didn't remix it I would imagine or didn't do a whole lot to it.

The video is average. No obvious EE. I would say around a 3 out of 5 for video quality. About as good as I could have expected. The early parts are kinda ugly while after that it cleans up a bit.

The extras I have not dug into yet.

Overall an OK release but worth it for the anamorphic transfer and the cheap price tag. I think I paid $13.

I've watched this as well on a large monitor and I agree with Shane's assessment. I never watched the previous version so I can't compare, but I'm sure this one looks better due to the 16:9 enhancement.

The term "flipper" is only used for movies spread over to sides of a disc, i.e. you have to flip (get it?) the disc halfway through the film.
