But most comedies are like that,especially a film taking place in some type of 'squad'(military,police..whatever). They will always have a 'funny' training first half,with a more 'action comedy' to conclude the film second half.

Police Academy is another example with the riot ending. Yet neither film loses it's sense of humor durring those sequences and are still entertaining/amusing.

So it does'nt bother me at all,since where else would the film go? Just stay in training the entire time with no real conclusion/point? Sure we love the charecters when they are more 'childish' and 'wild'. But their charecters have to evolve somewhat in the end.

The only time I have a problem with some or many comedies for that matter. Is when they take themselves too damn seriouslly and lack a real sense of humor.

DVD File is stating that as of now there appears to be nothing extra coming in the Stripes release supplements (nothin' + nothin' = nothin'), just the extra 18 minutes in the feature itself.

That would be a damn shame.

Not nothing...

Eighteen additional minutes incorporated back into the film (the six deleted sequences include the ten-minute "South America," "John's Apartment," "Stillman's Office," "You Two Volunteer," "The Chateau," and "Platoon in Trouble")

Audio commentary track with director Ivan Reitman and producer/writer Dan Goldberg

New hour-long documentary "Stars and Stripes" (featuring exclusive new interviews with the cast and filmmakers, including Harold Ramis, Judge Reinhold, John Larroquette, John Diehl, Sean Young, P.J. Soles and -- for the first time on DVD -- Bill Murray)

Will it include both versions on this disc? Maybe through branching so you can watch either version? I don't want to get rid of my current version until I know that I like the extended version.

Doubt it, since seamless branching is one of those very rarely used DVD technologies. I just can't see them doing a seamless branch with a movie like Stripes.

Glad to read the other source was incorrect. I would have bought it anyway, but this is much better.

saw a commercial for Stripes last night before Star Wars on the big screen. it was in "the twenty" for those of you who have a regal cinema. Interviews were good, but Bill Murray seemed to be doing his in a strip club or something...weird lighting.

from the review

This DVD gives you the option to watch the theatrical cut or the extended edition with just one flick of the remote. What's the difference between the two versions? Six scenes that run about 18 minutes all told; watch the extended edition and each of the new scenes will be preceded by an onscreen signal. (Oddly, you cannot watch the extended cut without the new scene "markers.") Or you could simply stick with the theatrical version we all know and love -- and then watch all six of the new additions via the deleted scenes option.

and you just sold Cameron on the upgrade with that

Nice review! Glad I already pre-ordered it! Now we need a review for Tears of the Sun.

Then my enthusiasm for this release made it into the review. Glad to hear it.

Yeah, I wanted to make sure that the readers know BOTH versions are available. It was important to me when I first heard about the release, so I assumed it'd be important for other fans as well.

Now we need a review for Tears of the Sun.
Yeah that one's my responsibility as well. Here's a really short version:

Movie still kinda sucks, only now it's longer. Not exactly sure what the "new" scenes are, but I'm told they're the deleted scenes from the previous release. Which means that there's not ONE new thing on this "Special Edition" aside from the fact that the old deleted scenes were jammed back into the movie.

I'll try to get that review up soon, but all you Tears of the Sun fans may as well just beat me up right now ... cuz I think this movie pretty much stinks.

Dear Reviewer:

I have one question to ask you about "Tears of the Sun" Dir. Cut DVD. As I checked the special features listed at DVDempire.com, there's one feature "Over 24-minutes of Never-before-seen footage" not included in the original SE version. I wonder if you could tell us if it is a new material or not.
