    OK,

    I loved Robin Hood: Price of Thieves. It was one of my favorite movies as a kid. It was also the first DVD I bought. (I didn't even have a DVD player at the time!!)

    Anyways, mine is a flipper. I can not find any info that it has been re-released or anything. I HATE that I have to flip the thing. Has this ever been re-released? Is there a dual-layer release in a different region I could get? I would re-buy this disc just to have it all on one side.

    I really appreciate any info.

    No re-release yet. I can't even recall if I've heard rumors of a new one - I think I have, but don't hold me to that...

    Me too. This was one of the first dvd's I bought and besides being a flipper it is a horrendous transfer.

    Bring on the SE!

    It was a major movie that summer (even next to T2) I'm amazed it's taken so long for them to rerelease. I mean, they're re-releasing T2 for the third time!

    Given that Morgan Creek seems to like DTS tracks (American Outlaws and True Romance: SE), perhaps this film will have one.

    I certainly hope it has DTS, the first disc only had Dolby stereo!

    I'll get this if it's an anamorphic remaster. PQ on the original release is very bad, and not just because it's not anamorphic. I don't mind flippers for long movies like Das Boot, but the horrible PQ is inexcusable.

    Finally I will be able to buy this movie on dvd! I refuse to buy a horrible quality flipper disc, so I am elated to see that a SE will be arriving soon. I remember the summer that Robin Hood came out. My friends and I saw it several times in the theater, despite Kevin Coster's poor accent. [​IMG]

    I've been waiting for an SE of this movie for soooo long. The original R1 flipper is an abomination - and you can only tell which side is A or B by looking at the tiny writing on the inner hub! At least other flippers have the sides clearly marked. I got this pathetic disc because it was uncut (the UK version is cut in numerous places) but I soon sold it on. It doesn't even have a 5.1 remix, ffs!

    Alan Rickman is at his BEST in this movie. One of my favorite villians. Sure a different twist on the sheriff.

    He "stole the show" in this movie. At the time, there were many "stories" about Kevin Costner being upset about this. Any of you guys hear that's the reason he (A.R.) did not show up in any American made movies untill several years later?? [​IMG]
