3. Cocktail (special edition)
4. X-Men III: The Last Stand
5. Innerspace
6. Canít Buy Me Love
7. Demon Knight
8. Lethal Weapon Series

I am curious about XMEN III as well. I read that there was going to be another edition coming out so I held off.

Cocktail was supposed have a special edition along the Waterboy almost 4 years ago. They were announced then removed from schedule without reason.

True Lies has always been rumored with a new SE coming out but it still hasn't been announced.

Expect the X-Men 3 SE when Wolverine is released on 2009.

I'd like a 2-disk version of Gettysburg with the additional footage I've always heard about added in.

Oh and make it a two-disk please. I have two copies of the original release flipper disk and they're both going bad.

And "Bladerunner", for crying out loud!

Seriously, what? (and it's Blade Runner, two words)

All I want are anamorphic versions of True Lies and 2010.

Paths of Glory. I just tried to watch my copy that I picked up used a little while ago, and my player was doing weird things with the image, like blowing it up to fill my 16:9 screen. Anyone know what gives with this DVD?? Thanks...

Jim,

likely to be a setting for your tv, plays 4:3 on mine with black bars on the side like it should.

Love me some Deep Rising.

Well, at least we R2'ers got something to be happy about...

I myself am most looking forward to these three titles:
The Road Warrior (needs SE treatment)
Navajo Joe (only available in a super-expensive OOP Japanese box set)
The Mercenary (see above; US disc is pan&scan)

Is your DVD player set to stretch 4:3 content?

Paths of Glory was restored in 2004. I'm still waiting for the DVD SE...

I'm with ya. Thankfully, both are rumored to be coming out with new widescreen fully-packed SE's this year.

The "additional" footage is probably the extended cut that was available on laserdisc...I remember it fairly well. While interesting it didn't really make the movie any better. I thought the movie in its theatrical cut offered JUST enough about the characters without dragging it down.

I agree regarding the flippers. WB seemed to get away from them for the most part but I see they have started turning up again recently (The REAPING being the first example...)

I hate them.
