Carlito's Way UE

Has anyone found this at their local stores? I could not find today at BB but see that Amazon has available.
I recall a similar problem with it's last release as well; they always mishandle this title for some reason.

In Best Buy's system it says it isn't out until 9/20.


But all the websites say it came out today (9/13). So some best buy's just didn't put it out because of what it says on their system.

I saw it at Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, I don't remember the exact price, but it definitely was under $20.

This was my BB story today, Reader's Digest version
1) Web Site says local stores have in stock
2) No where on shelf
3) Clerk says their CPU says it's in stock as well
4) Good ol' insult the customer by looking in same places you've been doing the past 5 minutes
5) double checks the CPU which says it's released on the 20th...never occurs to her to question points 1 & 3 above and why push the issue with these dead brain cells known as BB workers?
I'm out the door.

My local BB and Circuit City both had this on the Drama shelves today. Picked up a copy, was $16.99 at BB. Nice slipcover, chrome and black matching the Scarface release.

Thanks for the info. That's a poor excuse for an "Ultimate". I'll pass.

Let's revise this accordingly:

"Collector's Edition -- Anamorphic, "The Making of 'Carlito's Way'", Photo and Poster Gallery, Theatrical Trailer (2.35:1 non-anamorphic letterboxed -- washed out, but sharp)

Ultimate Edition -- Anamorphic, Deleted Scenes (approx. 8 minutes), "Brian DePalma on 'Carlito's Way'" (approx. 6 minutes), "The Making of 'Carlito's Way'" (identical to the one found on the Collector's Edition, approx. 35 minutes), an original production featurette from when the film was initially released (approx. 8 minutes), the exact same Photo and Poster Gallery found on the Collector's Edition (I checked -- no photos are missing), and the theatrical trailer (1.85:1 non-anamorphic letterboxed -- a darker, murkier, softer print than the one used on the Collector's Edition)"

So, the only meaningful extras on the new release (other than a new DTS 5.1 track) are the Brian DePalma featurette, the original production featurette and the deleted scenes selection. In my opinion, the video is in every way identical to the Collector's Edition but, again, now the audio has been upgraded to DTS 5.1. YMMV, but I think it's a worthwhile upgrade. And in regards to the trailer being an arguable step down in presentation quality, the version found on the Collector's Edition (which I'll promptly be selling off) is also found hidden on my original 1998 DVD of SCARFACE: Collector's Edition, so I feel that I've lost nothing, only gained...

...oh, and you can check out comparison screenshots at www.dvdbeaver.com...

Considering the "Collector's Edition" wasn't out very long, I'm glad about this rerelease as I missed out on getting the previous version.

I think the retail on this is $22.99, so $16.99 - $17.99 is a likely price in store. It's $16.19 at DDD shipped.

DDD and DVD Empire both list this title as being "double sided". yippee, another Universal 2-sided release. They must have cut back their budget.

Yep, it's double-sided...not sure why that raises so much ire on these boards, but there it is...

I'm actually having a problem with mine on one of my players. The disc freezes up during Chapters 18-19. I thought it was just mine but it seems someone else on the HTF boards is having a similar problem.

It plays fine on an older player of mine, but I only checked those 2 chapters. I hope there aren't a bunch of defects with this, I'm heading back to exchange it today.

Is it dual-layered and double sided? if it's single layered, then Universal can kiss my ass.
