    Isn't that the movie where Tom Cruise goes kinda crazy at the end?

    They actually showed this on the History Channel last year and I watched most of it after not having seen the film since I was six or seven years old and it's pretty good.

    dvdanswers.com has some of the details:

    Extras will include an audio commentary by director Harold Becker, a Sounding the Call to Arms: Mobilizing the TAPS Generation featurette, a The Bugler's Cry: The Origins of Playing 'Taps' featurette, Theatrical Teaser A, Theatrical Teaser B, a Work Print trailer, and two TV spots.

    I've been looking forward to "TPS" for a while now, given that it's the very first collaboration between Cruise and Crooze.[​IMG]

    other than the featurettes, is there any reason to shop this version over the previous release? on paper, the presentation specs look identical. the previous version can be found for much less. thanks.

    I don't think the new one's worth an upgrade - or paying much more for it. I thought picture and audio were identical, and the extras weren't great. Here's my review:
