Well, anything's better than the bare bones release, even if it's another 1 disc.

Great movie, but I won't upgrade, it's just one of those films were I am just happy with the presentation alone and just want the movie.

Yeah, I'll stick with my version now too. I'm not really sure that any extras could add to the experience of such a deeply emotional film. If anything; knowing some of those insights might detract from it.

Which where?

I admit, it's an odd film to rerelease, but from the looks of this thread there is an audience for it. I'll be picking it up myself.

Great movie, but not one I'd remotely consider double dipping on as I don't have any desire to watch extras on it.

I'm mixed on this rerelease as well. It's an awesome movie, but I would be curious as to what the extras may be. Perhaps early reviews would sway my decision.

A chronological-cut of the movie would be nice, since the non-linear editing of the movie's time-line made little sense to it's narrative, or what Inarritu was trying to get across by having it jump around so much.

I blame Universal because there's a very nice 2-disc SE of M.Dr. available in France with beaucoup extras that have Lynch as a contributor.

This is a great movie and it deserved a special edition DVD release as the first and only release. I will wait for specs and reviews though before I double dip.

They should've called it The 1" Erect Nipples Edition.

I absolutely love this movie, but I doubt I will pick this up.

I will give it a second thought if it has ample amounts of cast and crew interviews and editing featurettes. I bet the director's accent is too heavy to enjoy.

I was seriously just thinking about how when this dvd was originally coming out it had extras and then they dumped them all and released the barebones instead. So I waited two years and here it is, I'll pick it up. Just weird that I was thinking about it and here it is.

perhaps a sense of fractured memories much like the protagonists.

I nearly caved on several occasions, but holding out will finally pay off (I hope - I mean, come on, this is Universal we're talking about).

Hmm. Mixed emotions, but I"ll probably buy it regardless. I never bought the original, and this is probably as good as it will get.
