Buffalo '66 -Which release is better?

In terms of extras, video and audio quality which one is better?

Well I have the Lion's Gate Canadian release and there are no extras on that -- unless you count production notes, filmographies and a trailer as extras.

Anamorphic 1.85:1 (the cover is misprinted as 'letterbox') and Dolby Surround. The transfer is very good considering the quality of the source material (remember it's a low budget piece).

The US re-release looks to be Lion's Gate (or Trimark?) so I would expect the same disk as I have -- which looks to be the same as the original Universal/MCA release anyway.

HTH

They should be identical... Lions Gate/TriMark picked up quite a few Universal titles and are simply re-releasing them at a reduced price without adding anything extra.

That's certainly true but there is one exception - The Red Violin. Man, did Lions Gate/Trimark screw that one up! They gave it a better transfer but got rid of the DTS track and forgot to trigger the auto subtitles option, so you have to sit there with your remote in your hand turning the subtitles on and off for the non-English bits of the movie. What a mess! I hope they re-release it

I am sorry to report that although the transfer appears identical on the Lions Gate release I just bought, the great trailer cut to "Heart of the Sunrise" by Yes (same track as the strip club scene) is no longer there. It is replaced by a 'secret' link that shows a trailer comp for Lions Gate films including an inferior one for the film. However, the menus are nicer than the Universal release, if anyone cares.
