WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING?

Welcome to the forum, casady. I suggest that you not type entire messages in capital letters. It doesn't make it any easier to read.

well said Static Clean..no need to shout we can all read here!..Tyler is also right the current edition is a SE..Besides the only thing missing would be a commentary. I thaught the short documentary was enough...

You wouldn't be able to improve on the picture quality also in my view so what would be the point..Unless we get brand new interviews with the whole cast like they did with the Usual Suspects and Reservoir Dogs then it might be worth the $$$

No, but props to a cool new member for actually using the search feature instead of starting a new thread.

I thought I remember someone in a WB chat earlier this yr mentioning a SE was in the works. It also seems to be confirmed in the rerelease(s) thread above, probably from that same source.

Yes, it was mentioned in the chat that there would be a new edition.

I think it could use one. It was released in 1998 when the standard for picture quality wasn't as high as it is now, and 2-disc sets were unheard of. It could certainly benefit from a new transfer. The difference probably wouldn't be night and day, but it would be noticeable.

Of course, I would rather see them redo something that really needs it like Blade Runner or their fullscreen-only titles, but regardless, I would welcome a new edition of L.A. Confidential.

They're getting it ready for its 10-year anniversary in 2007, according to the chat.

Man, that film had an amazing cast: Russell Crowe, Kevin Spacey, Guy Pearce, James Cromwell, Danny DeVito, David Straitharn. Even more amazing that Kim Basinger, who gave the worst performance in the film, ended up with the Oscar.

I'm pretty happy with the current release until I get my HD TV

Kinda Ironic that "Special Edition" still doesn't mean much sometimes. I was actually kinda hoping that this would get "Criterion". But i won't say no to the 2-disker when it is released.

Interesting idea, L.A. Confidential as a Criterion.

Alas, I shall pout as well about the 2007 date. Let's push that to mid-2006, please.

Actually, the current disc is pretty good and really fits into the Special Edition label. Still, I'm up for more extras.

One of my all time favorites. I wouldn't mind a 2-disc, even though the current release is pretty good. I would love to get rid of the snapper case.

An SE would be very nice, but Curtis Hansen hasn't done any audio commentaries or given any special features worth a darn so far (well, besides that Bob Dylan video in The Wonder Boys). I don't expect him to start now.

What would the upcoming SE entail? What "new" extras will be presented - since this is "rumored" to be a 2-disc set, I suppose the extras will be in abundance. The current edition (ugh - snapper) has many, many extras, so I can't imagine what else might be included.

Any updates?

Oh, I'll be surprised if it isn't made available in HD. Let's hope it's early in the year, not late.

As for what it will entail, we'll have to wait and see. In addition to the needed new transfer (and those who have HD will know why that's so important), we should get some retrospective material. Hopefully there will be a commentary, if not from Hansen, maybe someone else. A James Ellroy commentary would be a real hoot.
