I've been waiting to pick up The Fifth Element Hopefully the Ultimate Edition will be worth getting, as i haven't been able to decide on the regular edition or spending the extra on the superbit.

Whoohoo, I was debating whether I should sell my Fifth Element to Blockbuster for their $8 buy-in.

Man, I hope the Leon 2-disc is worth waiting for. After like 3 mediocre releases (and 2 with defective sound mixes), it's getting sort of annoying...

It was mentioned in a thread some months ago that Natalie Portman recorded a commentary for LEON. I think she talked about it in a magazine interview.

I thought Luc Besson didn't approve of SEs for his movies and preferred them to be essentially featureless. Anyone know why the change?

Stupid Columbia loves to piss me off like this, that's why I always have stay away from this company.

Even worse, they bought out MGM, now they are gonna screw over their catalog too.

Get ready, there are gonna be superbit, deluxe, WS, FS, superbit deluxe and ultimate versions of all twenty-something James Bond films, and that's gonna be before they pull the same stunt with the Blu-Ray versions.

So true. If Leon isnt a fantastic disc, I'm gonna put Columbia in a headlock and make them eat fireants.
