    I just picked up Reservoir Dogs at Best Buy for $11.99. It is the Special 10ht Anniversary Edition but has all four faces on the cover instead of just one. Does anyone know if it is different in any other way besides the cover art?

    I'm pretty sure that there is no difference between the 4 versions besides the coverart and perhaps the packaging. Can anyone else confirm this?

    The coverart you're describing is included in all versions of the "Reservoir Dogs: Ten Years Special Edition" DVD. The first run had an outer slipcover containing either Mr. Blonde, Mr. White, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, and a Mr. Brown slipcover that was supposedly more rare than the other four. Each of these slipcases covered the keepcase coverart that you're describing, with the four "main" actors on the cover and Mr. Brown on the spine. It's the same DVD, but beware, because a lot of people had a problem with the transfer and there's a bunch of dialogue missing. Artisan hasn't addressed the transfer but they're supposedly going to correct the missing dialogue.

    No differences, except inside the DVD soft case cover arts it gives info and pics for the character on the cover art alone.

    Looks like everyone's dumping this title.

    I got mine at CC for $11 or $12 as well.

    Not sure if it was a sale or their new base price.

    They dropped MSRP to 15 a few months back, IIRC.

    The black level on the disc is too high. I have to turn it down about 4 notches to get it where it should be. What's this about missing dialogue? I never heard about or noticed this?

    I don't think it is so much that everyone is "dumping this" so much as Artisan is GREAT about dropping prices on their discs relatively soon after release. This is one reason I really like their stuff...don't buy it on release day and you can save about $5 later on down the road. BUt that's just me...
