The Dream Team sounds good, as well as the 8Mile/Empire pack if it can be had for $22 or so. Same for Bourne/Spy Game.

It's all about Duel for me.

And maybe Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

I might have to pick up Hard to Hold, for nostalgia's sake. Unless it's P&S!

I guess Spielberg decided not to do a WS version of Duel.

Mask

Kuffs without a doubt for me... only if it is 16:9 enhanced of course.

And the new re-release of American Pie will be double DTS this time.

I hope that's wrong!

If not, I'll just get Duel.

DVDFile is also saying Backbeat is FS, and that the others are all anamorphic.

Duel in Full Screen?!? Guess since it was for TV that is what it is... Poop.

From IMDB:
Technical Specifications for
Duel (1971/I) (TV)

Laboratory
Technicolor
Film negative format (mm/video inches)
35 mm
Cinematographic process
Spherical
Printed film format
35 mm
Aspect ratio
1.33 : 1

It does look like we get the 90 minute version though... The Universal site lists it at 1:30. was this the same on the VHS?

Spielberg shot an additional 16 minutes of footage (bringing the running time up to 90 minutes from the original 74 of the TV version), including a longer title sequence, and a scene showing the killer truck trying to push Dennis Weaver's car under a train at a railroad crossing. Another new scene, where Weaver stops at a gas station and phones and his wife, was written by producer George Eckstein to inflate the running time to the requested 90 minutes, reportedly against Spielberg's will.

I hope Brighton Beach Memoirs is at least widescreen. Some other extras might be nice, but they could at least put it out widescreen.
