    I feel that this deserves a good release, a decent anamorphic transfer along with Dolby 5.1.
    An audio commentary by some fire guy would interesting along with a howard commentary too.
    Come on this is a very popular film, and you have the ride at your studios so make an effort with the release [​IMG]
    Thanks

    I totally agree with you Jez. Universal please release a special edition of this film. I have been holding out on buying this title for the longest time.

    "commentary by some fire guy"

    How about fire marshall Bill..."LET ME SHOW YA SOMETHIN!"

    Seriously, a SE of this film is long overdue. At least give us a new anamorphic transfer.

    This was rumored to be in the works a while back. I wonder what the holdup is?
    It's one of Ron Howard's best.

    I'll go for one. I got rid of my earlier version long ago because the picture was such atrocious, that I knew I'd never watch it again.
    Please, a CE/UE with a possible DTS track would be great!

    I got mine yesterday.
    That's why I walk this way!

    Backdraft deserves the UE treatment as much as Patch Adams and Meet Joe Black combined.

    It would be great if Universal could include a DTS soundtrack for a Backdraft SE dvd.

    This film needs special edition treatment! Bought the old version and unloaded it almost immediately. C'mon Universal, gives us a special release like you did for Howard's Apollo 13.
