Think Silence of the Lambs will get another release?

I don't think a Criterion of it will fall into my hands any time soon, so I was thinking of getting the current version out... but I can hold out if another version is coming sometime... but I haven't heard anything myself.

Thanks.

You never know.

That's why I haven't bought one DVD...fear that a better edition will be coming down the line.

I was just thinking someone may know something.
But no thanks anyway.

The current release is already the third incarnation since the advent of DVD. I highly doubt we'll see another one for a number of years.

Thanks for the good info, I went ahead and ordered it. Good deal on it @ bestbuy.com right now.

I agree completely. Although my DVD aficionado says otherwise, I'm also holding out for a better Black Hawk Down and a more complete FOTR release. The idea of a double deep keeps me away from ANY dvd-related material. Hell, I don't even have a player b/c I'm waiting for one that will completely eliminate all of the bad things that DVDs cause and will also rewind automatically at the end of play.

Back on topic, I wouldn't count on another SotL release any time soon, either. But check eBay for the Criterion. Just be patient and you'll find one eventually.

I'll still keep my eye out for a Criterion of it, however:

Since this thread seems to have wrapped itself up rather quickly, I'm going to hijack it for a moment and ask . . . reubs . . . DAWGS = UGA? Have wanted to clarify for some time now and keep forgetting.

What's wrong with the MGM release, other than the fact it doesn't have a commentary track?

talemyn,

Thanks for noticing. You assumed correctly. 2003 graduate, 41-14 over the Vols! Are you a fan yourself?

As for "what's wrong with the MGM release?", some people say that the transfers are too different. The Criterion is darker and non-anamorphic. My understanding is that the MGM is lighter and anamorphic. Also, the Criterion has the Voices of Death extra feature (interviews with real serial killers).

They both have different selections of deleted scenes. Overall, MGM has more, but Criterion still has deleted footage not on the MGM disc.
