    MGM and/or Warner Borthers, please consider a DVD release of these two movies, now that Trimark will release part 3 in August.
    Please release them in OAR (part 1 is 1.66:1, and should therefore be anamorphic enhanced), and dedicated special editions of these movies would be a very welcome step!

    Part 2 was just ok(IMHO), but the first one is much anticipated by myself and countless other horror fans. If I'm not mistaken, rights issues appear to be holding this one up, but when the time comes, I would expect nothing less than a new anamorphic transfer of the original uncut version along with a few extras.

    I would love to see them both on DVD as well. I love Parts 1 & 2 and they deserve a good DVD Treatment. Give them both Theatrical Anamorphic Widescreen 2.35:1, Dolby Digital Surround Sound 5.1, and plenty of good extras...

    Ken, I agree with you in every aspect, except the ratio! (got it?)
    To my knowledge, none of these were released in 2.35 theatrically, the first is 1.66, and I think the second is 1.85!
    They should however still be anamorphic! [​IMG]

    Perhaps it's possible to convert a movie shot in that format to 2.35:1? If not, I'll go with 1.66:1 and 1.85:1, just as long as the Widescreen Image is Anamorphic and has a Theatrical Look to it [​IMG]...

    I'd buy the first movie in the series, but the second one was awful. I'd love to retire my VHS of RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD.

    Yeah Michael, better safe than sorry! [​IMG] It was great you got J. Brenner to confirm that little detail!

    Yeah, it was cool to finally help dispell that "full screen" myth.
    Like Brenner said, it could've been cleared up a while ago if someone had just thought to e-mail him.
