I was going to say, that was the ONLY thing that seemed different between the two. Basically identical otherwise.

Finally sat down to watch the single disc version.

Pretty amazing stuff!

So different watching in 181" versus a DVD at 65"!

The only sad thing is that my dad isn't around to see it with me.


Is the Criterion version worth buying? The single disc version is the only version I've ever seen (and memorized practically).

There's no reason to buy the Criterion version unless you really like the film and must have what it offers over the older release, which can now be found in the bargain bin at WalMart for $8 or less.

In Canada it's part of a 2 for $10 deal.

On my Oppo BDP-80, playing the Criterion version, the subtitles don't show up at all on the roadshow version, but they do show up on the theatrical version. The BDP-80's "subtitle shift" option doesn't help; the subtitles move up and down on the theatrical version as expected, but on the roadshow version... nada.

[addded] Argh, should have checked on blu-ray.com first. The roadshow version has subtitles only in those added scenes for which the audio track was lost. That must be why I can choose the subtitle option at all in the first place.
