It's a 2-disc special edition. SRP is $30. $25 is certainly reasonable.
The original edition of The Crow was non-anamorphic and had a bad transfer (the contrast was off in the first few minutes). There was a second release that supposedly corrected the contrast problem, still non-anamorphic and in the same packaging.
The new 2-disc SE is a major improvement, and well worth the cost.
The Crow was originally released with a non-anamorphic transfer, DD 5.1 (IIRC), and just the trailer.
The special edition is a two disc set with a new anamorphic transfer, DD and DTS tracks, commentary, and a whole second disc devoted to special features. If studio politics didn't get in the way, we could've also had another commentary (with Alex Proyas) and a 90 minute documentary dealing with the making of the film. :frowning:
I didn't buy the original release of the Crow because I saw it for like 22 bucks, and thought it was expesnive for what it offered and everything. Then I saw the SE and I believe it was 24, so I picked it up becausae I thought it was worth it with all the extras and such that came with it.
