+1 as long as it is truly an upgrade over the DVD.

So the laserdisc is STILL the only edition containing the extended (20 minutes) Director's Cut version!

It's not a director's cut. It's just an extended version.

If you're interested, I posted the deleted scenes on youtube.

How could it not be an upgrade? The DVD is non-anamorphic.

Tremendous leap in detail over the DVD (good), no sign of EE (great!). Looks like it still has some minor flaws, but it's "good enough" so I'll bite. smile.gif

Sounds good to me. I previously posted day 1 purchase but since backed off. Sounds like I'll have to get it!!

I can't believe I didn't notice this release. I've been waiting so long. The damn DVD is non-anamorphic!

Shame the Extended cut isn't included.
