    Awesome! They've been showing this on one of the movie channels here a lot. I'd love to see this movie in at least anamorphic widescreen. It's one of the first movies showing off the advantages of computer animation. In fact, I'd have to say the knight in the church is better and more realistic than 99% of the CGI that's followed it. And the scene with Holmes and the pastries? Classic.

    It's about time...would love to get an anamorphic widescreen version of this, so I can finally retire my copy that I taped off AMC (Widescreen and before they showed commercials!)

    And Jesse, I think you mean Watson and the pasteries.

    It's just too bad Paramount owns this. It'll be a crummy bare-bones DVD. We'll be lucky to get the trailer.

    Maybe it'll be given a Special Edition treatment?

    Ha! Yeah right. It wasn't exactly a huge blockbuster hit. It's an obscure 80s film with a small but loyal cult following. Paramount couldn't even give us a decent 2-disc special edition of GREASE, so why would they bother adding anything more than a trailer for this film?

    Ooooh I hope it gets released on DVD eventually, I really love this movie, and Bruce Broughton's music was fantastic, one of my favorite soundtracks.

    What was notable about the CGI in this film? I forgot what it was.

    It was one of the first films to use CGI - the scene where the priest sees the stained-glass window shatter, and the 2D "window knight" pick himself up and attack the priest. Very cool scene. Haven't seen this film in about 10 years, but I remember enjoying it (even if I was annoyed that the books said they first met after Watson was injured in the war, rendering the film inconsistent with the source).

    Given that it's a Lucasfilm title. They'll do something in the way of extras.

    It would be great to have this on DVD. I have a widescreen version of it from AMC before they converted to the J6P HBO-wannabe piece of utter sh*t that it is today. YSH is a highly under-rated movie and I'd be the first one in line to buy it.
