Been waiting for an anamorphic copy of this; will probably be picking this one up.

Glad to see they stuck with the same cover and didn't add a bunch of floating heads. Man, it bugs me when they do do that.

Fantastic. This was an early buy for me. I've watched it dozens of times.

Other favorites of mine, that are not anamorphic, (and need to be) is "Ever After", and "The Mask".
I was thinking of getting "Ever After" - according to this it was released in January as anamorphic - is this wrong? Thanks

Ever after

I guess Paramount is changing the look of their "special collector's editions". no more "Widescreen Collection" at the top???

Damn, I was hoping to see an extended or alternate ending listed in the specs. The original ending with the presidential speech always felt anticlimactic to me.

Is this worth a blind buy? I've never seen it before, but it's only like $9. lol

Newfrd...Ever After was quietly released anamorphically a while ago. Just check the back of the package when purchasing.

I bought this film before I knew what Anamorphic meant. Finally I got to upgrade it today.

Ever after
I'm pretty sure there's been no rerelease of this film, and it is not Anamorphic. A shame too, as it's a good story and beautifully filmed. Hopefully it will get redone correctly. With Deep Impact getting the treatment, Ever After should happen.

MrVette...Ever After was rereleased anamorphically. It was never announced, it just showed up on shelves. Just make sure you read the back of the case. I am 100% positive about this.

Thanks badlieut. I'll definitely be looking for it. It is a favorite. It was one of the first films I bought.

FOX re-rleased many titles under the radar a few years ago (Ever After, Woman On Top, Never Been Kissed, Simply Irrestiable, etc) with new anamorphic transfers and pan and scan versions on dual-sided discs. Audio and extras still remain the same.

I must admit I thought the Anamorphic Transfer would look better than it does. Oh well

I suspect they only use the "Widescreen Collection" banner when there are actually non-widescreen (i.e. fullscreen) versions available.

Great DVD with great picture and audio for the price.

Also got The Ghost and the Darkness for 4 bucks because of a coupon I got with that free SC&TWoT DVD from Best Buy.

I'm with you on this one. I expectged a much better transfer than the one we received. But for $10, I'm not really complaining that much.

Odd how that is just the reverse of what Sony-Columbia-Tristar is doing -- taking their dual-sided foolscreen/anamorphic discs and silently making them single-sided foolscreen-only and NOT CHANGING THE UPC!!!

What makes it even more interesting is Rupert Murdoch's public statements about selling whatever will sell to the public (made in the context of how he *really* dislikes "Fight Club" but Fox publishes it anyway because there is a market for it). Either OAR *is* preferred by the buying public and Sony has just got sashimi for brains, or Fox has been breaking Murdoch's rule.

Hey guys, anyone want to give me a quick opinion on the special features for this one? I have the original DVD and don't really care about the anamorphic thing since I don't have an HDTV.

Are the special features alone worth double-dipping for $9-10? Doesn't sound like there's too much there. Thanks.
