    Have there been any rumors about an SE for this title?

    I'm not big on going to the same well twice (though I'm actually planning to make an exception for Fellowship of the Ring).

    I don't know where you heard the rumors of a so-called "SE" but this disc is pretty packed:

    Commentary by Thorton and the Coens

    Deleted Scenes

    Making Of

    Interview with Cinematographer

    Trailer

    I can't think of anything else worth adding for a SE. If you wait, you'll be waiting for a version that will never come.

    I hadn't heard any. I was asking if there were any I hadn't heard. I should have been more clear. [​IMG]
    Anyway, your list of goodies is good enough justification for me.

    Just so you know, the current version has the following:

    - (real) Directors Commentary (with Thornton)

    - 45 minute interview with Roger Deakins

    - 5 deleted scenes

    - 1 trailer and 2 TV spots

    - 16 1/2 minutes "making of" featurette

    - Behind the Scenes photogallery and filmographies

    For a Coen Brothers film, we're lucky we got this much (which is pretty decent by any standard).

    Pick it up, I highly doubt we'll be seeing a re-release.

    I was just at Best Buy and started to pick this movie up and while looking at the cover I noticed that no where did it say if it was widescreen or not.
    I asked the clerk to check it on the computer and it didn't say either.
    Is it widescreen or not?

    Beautiful transfer in anamorphic widescreen.

    I spent much of yesterday evening with it, and I still haven't finished all the special features. A lot of substance and very little fluff (although the guy who interviewed Roger Deakins shouldn't quit his day job). The transfer is gorgeous -- not quite as densely textured as projected film, but certainly the best that NTSC video can provide. I'm thrilled!

    Just got back from the rental place. First to rent it so no scratches!

    My tact on this title is to rent and wait for the inevitable price drop. I have so much to watch as it is.

    Ran out at lunch to Circuit City. Saw the post asking about widescreen before I left, so I paid careful attention. Sure enough, there's no indication at all on the package that I can find.

    Now it is mine!

    What a magnificent transfer! I can't wait 'til they colorize this one.

    Great anamorphic tranfer. Great film. I bought the original poster from allposters.com. I loved this flick that much. I think I have a hetrosexual man crush on Billy Bob. [​IMG]

    I really liked Scarlett Johansson in the car:

    "I want to Mr. Crane! I WANT TO MR. CRANE!"

    man, that one really threw me for a loop! Who would've ever thought?

    Any word if other regions in the world are going to get the color version of this film on DVD?

    I know it was released in color theatrically in some foreign markets, but have seen nothing from the ususal sources as to the specifics on other region DVDs.

    Just curious, not actually wanting to watch it in color, so send no flames this way please.

    I am a huge fan of this movie. The transfer is gorgeous, thank God, so it really shows off the fantastic cinematography of Roger Deakins! [​IMG]
    I agree that waiting for a SE wouldn't make sense.

    Of course it wasn't colorized to do so, it was shot in color and then made B&W of course.

    Makes the incredible B&W work by Deakins all that more impressive.

    Mitty - I hadn't heard that it was an accident, where did you find that out at? I thought foreign markets were very picky about getting films in color only.

    Just had to pipe in with my 2¢ about this film! I love this dvd, fantastic picture, with one of the more memorable scores I have heard in a while. I like this step by the Coens - not their typical film, but a great one nonetheless.
    My head is still hurting from the twists and turns. [​IMG]
    Regards, Jim
