    The catalog title of the year!!

    MGM Home Entertainment will finally release To Live and Die in LA: SE on December 2nd.

    This special edition will arrive with a new anamorphic widescreen transfer (1.85:1), newly remastered English Dolby Digital 5.1 and French DD 2.0 Surround audio tracks. Bonus material include an audio commentary with director William Friedkin, Deleted Scene and Alternate Ending Featurettes, "Counterfeit World: The Making of To Live and Die in LA" Documentary, a still gallery, and theatrical trailers. Best of all, retail is a measly $19.98.

    Thanks Patrick! I've been waiting for this one for nearly a year when I heard Friedkin was working on it. Glad to see the alternate ending on there to boot.

    I would have liked to see the music videos. I ran across one for the title song on VH1 classics but couldn't tape. I wish more companies would put music videos on DVD.

    With the state the music industry is in, I'm sure they just see $$$ whenever studios approach them for anything DVD related.

    As cool as the Wang Chung music and videos are, I wouldn't want them to hold up this disc any longer.

    I am SOOOOOOOO all over this one!!! December 2nd can't come quick enough!! I can't believe it has all that I was hoping for: 5.1, anamorphic, deleted scenes, alternate ending AND a Freidkin commentary!!! Add into that the fact that it's only $19.95!! I know where MY money is going this December!!

    Have never seen the film, but I might buy it sight unseen since I've heard so many good things about it; I became a big Friedkin fan last year when I picked up The French Connection and The Exorcist, while I found The Hunted to be mildly entertaining; if theres any extra cash lying around in December I'll definitely pick this and Escape From New York up. MGM certainly knows how to build anticipation for their catalogue titles...[​IMG]

    Whenever someone mentions this film - It always reminds me of the movie soundtrack - it's a very interesting moody soundtrack by Wang Chung. Shame there isn't an isolated score - that would have been great.
