Warner - how about a flip Amadeus?

I have Pioneer's old laserdisc box set which contains Amadeus spread across several sides. I am a bit dismayed that Warner has not issued a dual-layer DVD. Amadeus is a great film and is the type of viewing experience best taken in as a whole. I have not purchased the existing DVD, nor do I plan to. If you can't give the film the royal treatment it deserves, at least release a non-flipper. Thanks.

And while they're at it, they could sharpen up the image. The Pioneer laser is MUCH sharper than the a-little-fuzzier=and-it-would-be-blurry DVD. Warner's release of WITCHES OF EASTWICK is similarly soft.

Somehow, I had missed ever seeing this movie for all these years until I rented the DVD just a few weeks ago. We really enjoyed the movie.
The DVD was "okay" but certainly not up to the standards of many other films of that era now on DVD. This Oscar winner deserves better DVD treatment. I would like to purchase it but will not do so with the current release.

I too would like to see a better version of this wonderful film on DVD. Being the fact that it is a 'flipper' is the only reason that I haven't picked it up on DVD.
Come on Warner!

I own the current version. While adequate, this film deserves better treatment. I would gladly purchase a new SE with a pristine transfer and a ton of extras.

I, too, would like to see an SE of Amadeus on DVD. There already is a stellar SE availalbe on LD, why not transfer those extras to DVD, sharpen up the picture and release it on a DVD-9? Considering the amount of music in this movie, this would be an excellent candidate for DTS, but this is Warner we're talking about. Id be happy with just a proper SE re-release.
