    A special edition of this classic, my favourite of the 90s' Best Picture winners, is long, long overdue. The current edition (which came out in 1998 I believe) has ZERO extras and no 5.1 for the fantastic soundtrack. Bring it on.

    English Patient is most definitely 5.1 in its current incarnation.

    This is another one I've been waiting and waiting for. I sold my bare-bones edition when I heard there was going to be an SE. [​IMG]

    I'm sure I read that this masterpiece is coming out this year.

    An English Patient Collector's Edition is in production, but Miramax tells me not to expect it before 2003. I can't wait for this one too... Best!

    Not too bothered about the extras myself, but if I could have a nice, sharp anamorphic transfer with audio quality to match the DTS LaserDisc, I'd be a happy chappy.

    Bugger.
