Carlito's Way: CE

A great film, and good DVD for those who are wondering. I agree it's sparse on features, but it strong where it matters most : transfer and sound. Featuring DD 5.1 and a 2:35 anamorphic transfer it is leaps and bounds better than the original release. It's hard to find any flaws on the new transfer. Also, the "Making Of Carlito's Way" documentary is very informative and entertaining. As for the cover, well luckily Universal didn't photoshop Pacino's head, rather they opted to stick with the shadow (thank goodness). As for the film, it's excellent. Great performances by Pacino, Sean Penn, and Jon Leguizamo (sp?). Needless to say I'm glad I held out on buying this, because it was well worth it for this DVD.

When I start the movie it goes right to it, no previews for me. Also if you are getting previews have you tried skipping to the next chapter?

This is when I first put the disc in and press play before it even reaches the menus... FBI warning screen then I get trailers..

Hitting next chapter during the trailers gets the "invalid option icon" from my player. FF works but only til the next trailer, then it resumes play and you have to hit FF again...

The three trailers are for Scarface, Animal House and Monty Python's Meaning of Life.. Oh and my player is the Panasonic XP30 and I got my copy of Carlito's Way at Wal-Mart..
