    I don't get it. I just rented and watched Stargate SE. I can't believe they'd make a SE and it be non-anamorphic. What's up with that?

    A lot of people asked the same thing when the disc came out two years ago.
    There were reports that Artisan didn't have access to proper source materials for a new transfer, but I don't remember whether that was ever confirmed.

    This is true, the extra scenes only exist on videotape, and on the anamorphic foreign versions are reported to look a lot worse than the surrounding footage

    When the SE was done for LD, the extra footage was finished on tape. In order to do an SE for DVD in 16x9, a lot of money must be spent and that won't happen.
    It's a shame, because the SE cut is a much better film and at least explains some of the stupidity in the theatrical cut (why go in with guns and a friggin nuke if there is no evidence of a threat?).

    'This is true, the extra scenes only exist on videotape, and on the anamorphic foreign versions are reported to look a lot worse than the surrounding footage'
    True... I just bought the dutch R2 DTS-version of Stargate SE, and while the anamorphic transfer of the 'theatrical scenes' looks great... The extra scenes do not... Too bad...
    The soundtrack sounds pretty cool though.
