    Not really a huge fan of Ron Howards movies, but always thought that these 2 movies - Backdraft/The Paper were his crowning moments.

    Wasn't there a mooted SE of Backdraft in the works? And, what about an anamorphic The Paper?

    Backdraft is on my list to buy if it ever gets a better edition.

    Backdraft would make a great special edition. It is in much need of a anamorphic transfer at the correct aspect ratio, and a DTS track, which would show off the Oscar nominated Sound and Sound Editing by Gary Rydstrom.

    Amen!

    I would snatch up a Backdraft SE in a second. It's one of the few movies that I really like, but don't own.

    I'll put my vote in for that...

    Put that trailer and deleted scenes from the TV version on there as well...
