At least I don't need to worry about having finally picked up the older release last year and missing out on something.

Not for me, but I'd get in trouble if I gave details...

Don't be a dick. Screeners can sometimes turn out to be wrong or different. I was just asking a question, if it bothered you, you didn't have to read the thread. Anyone who does "lol" still, now that's funny.

The new disc has NOTHING new added except for the soundtrack. The regular disc has an isolated score that has NEVER been available separately on CD. The regular soundtrack only contains source music for the film but no actual orchestrations (which is what the DVD contains). There has NEVER been a 5.1 remix of Stand By Me released in the US. Only the Japanese superbit has a brand new DTS 5.1 track that is actually directional. Hell, not even the PRESS RELEASE states anything about a 5.1 track. So therefore, one can deduce that this new version is just a rehash of the last one unless you have any real reason to think otherwise besides an amazon.com link which is hardly the most "solid" of sources.

And FYI, I have the soundtrack, the original SE AND the Japanese Superbit. So yes, I do believe I know a little about this title.

If you actually wanted to contribute, you could have posted this press release. That, certainly, would have helped answer the question of whether Amazon has it wrong or not. Instead of just calling someone dumb for asking for more clarification than one review.

And I still can't figure out what you having the soundtrack, original SE, AND Japanese Superbit has to do with the Deluxe edition, which is what this thread and my question was about. You don't have that.

The film was made in mono,sounds great in mono,and thus does not need a remix

So deal with it!

I think he saying that he doesn't need the deluxe edition because he has soundtrack, original SE and Superbit

The Deluxe Edition is probably nothing special. The term "deluxe" is pretty much thrown around just like all the others: Another tool used by the suits to get you to buy a useless high priced dvd.

I say stick with the $8 SE or go with the $45 Superbit...which is another marketing tool, but it does offer a good DTS track.

As far as I know, it's region 2 only. It can be purchased at almost any of the "usual" online japanese sites. But expect to pay $50-60 shipped for it. Happy trails!
