    Is it possible that this movie would get Special Edition treatment soon? It's 20th Annaversary is next year, so that would be a good time. From what I've heard the current DVD thats out is really crappy. Is there anyone else who'd be interested in this?

    I certainly would. The existing DVD is a disgrace.

    I would be all over an SE of Amigos. Not only is the image crappy but also unstable. Mine has it's own little pulse. Looks like about every 8-10 seconds, the image just kind of goes bump. :b

    A college favorite that remains so today. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overdue.

    That's an understatement. It's noisy, jumpy, non-anamorphic and the film jumps back to the menu before the closing credits have finished. (It's not my player, either. Watch it all the way through sometime and you'll see.)

    I know this movie isn't Citizen Kane but it deserves better treatment than this!

    With all those issues in the existing DVD (issues that would cripple sales of a "major" dvd release), it sounds like they have to revisit this. Here's hoping!

    Within its genre, it's pretty darn close to a Citizen Kane type of masterpiece. Comedies do not come any funnier than this. I would buy an SE of this in a heartbeat.

    I'd buy it in a second, the existing DVD is pretty much garbage.

    "I have put many pinatas in the storeroom, each filled with different surprises!"
    "Many pinatas?"
    "Oh yes, many!"
    "Would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?"
    "A what?"
    "A plethora."
    "Oh, si, El Guapo. You have a plethora."
    "Jefe, what is a plethora?"
    "Why, El Guapo?"
    "Well, you told me I have a plethora. And I would just like to know, if YOU know what a plethora is! I would not like to think that a person told someone he has a plethora, and find out that that person has no idea what it means to have a plethora!"
    "Forgive me, El Guapo, I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education, but could it be once again you are angry at something else, and looking to take it out on me, poor Jefe?"

    I've held off on the current DVD for YEARS now, in hopes of just such an SE. My cat is named after the villian, El Guapo!

    I've held off on the current release because I heard how ugly it is. I'd buy a re-release in an instant.

    [whisper]say we will die like dogs[/whisper]
    "You will die like dog--"
    "NO, we will not die like dogs. We will fight like lions!"

    "Well, we could take a walk and you could kiss me on the veranda."
    "On the lips would be fine."

    "I think it's a mail plane."
    "How can you tell?"
    "Didn't you see the little balls?"

    "I suppose you could say that everyone has an El Guapo. For some, shyness may be an El Guapo. For others, lack of education may be an El Guapo. But for us, El Guapo is a large ugly man who wants to kill us."

    Ok. I'm done.

    I love this film, i'd pick it up faster than Ned's quick draw! [​IMG]

    I still say that Galaxy Quest, while being a really funny film in it's own right, got it's core premise from this classic.

    Well The Three Amigos got it's core premise from The Magnificent Seven, which got it's core premise from The Seven Samurai. A Bug's Life also came from the Magnificent Seven.

    I would double-dip in a heartbeat, you sons of a motherless goat!

    Anytime a Three Amigos thread pops up it turns into a quote-fest. [​IMG]

    Great to see all this appriciation towards Three Amigos. Hopefully whatever company owns the DVD rights(who is it anyways?) sees this thread and realize they need to release this movie the right way. I'd love a Chase/Martin/Short commentary. To continue with quoting the movie...

    "Kha! Kha! Hey, yoooou, yooou, twwwo. WALK! Kha! Looook up here! Look up here! Look up here! Heeey, up here up here up here, kha kha! HEY YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!"

    (after they find out it's all real)
    "What are we gonna do?"
    "We'll were not gonna get paid that's for sure!"

    "Lipbalm?"

    I'd buy it. I saw it the other day on the shelf but non anamorphic = no sale.
