Sold my 1st release earlier this year. Cannot wait to pick up for the anamorphic transfer alone.

I just sold my copy of the original DVD a couple weeks ago. I'm definitely getting the SE. This is a really good movie.

I'll most definitely pick this up as it's a guilty pleasure of mine. It's a good companion to Armageddon. I almost picked up the original release a couple weeks ago until I remembered rumors about this one.

I'll definately grab this one too, DTS would've been nice, but still worth it.

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".

It's the best Decemberween gift ever.

Nice SRP too. Although I kinda wished there was DTS too.

May have to pick this one up. Wasnt as good as Armageddon in the action department but still quite entertaining.

Nope. It was non-anamorphic.

Paramount had a good amount from their early discs that are STILL non-anamorphic.

I am also excited to get this. I have been putting off purchasing the non-anamorphic release and it has been hard since I like the movie so much.

Maybe the week of release it will be $15ish.

My guess it'll be $15ish regular price every week at places like Best Buy and Circuit City. I can see it having a sale price of $12.99 at either one of them the first week.

For the same reasons you buy your crap.

Nothing wrong with crap... it helps to keep things in perspective.

Aren't you the guy who throws a fit whenever someone craps in a Star Wars thread?

If someone threadcraps, please don't reply to it. Just report it and ignore it. When three people quote it, it quadruples the work the mods have to do to get rid of it.
