I thought the Universal DVD was bare bones, but looking at in the store today I noticed that a Director's Commentary was listed as an extra. I could only find reviews for the R2 and R4 Universals and those are bare bones. I assume the commentary is ported over from the Anchor Bay release, but does anyone know for sure?
On the Anchor Bay release there is commentary by writer / director Alex Cox, executive producer Michael Nesmith, casting director Victoria Thomas, and actors Sy Richardson, Zander Schloss And Del Zamora.
I don't recall seeing this group on the Universal release as I did check awhile back so they may have gotten a different commentary out of Cox.
There's a special edition of this one slated to come out in January. I dunno if it's a reprint of the old release (no specs, yet) or what, but it's listed as apart from the regular edition -- it's "special".
Universal Studios Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Repo Man (Special Edition) for 24th January 2006 priced at $19.98 SRP. Starring Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton this new special edition features exclusive bonus material including Up Close With Harry Dean Stanton, The Missing Scenes, Feature Commentary and Repossessed, a featurette which details the bizarre career of Michael Nesmith.
