"I started questioning my entire being back there on the 405. It was like 'Altered States'. I saw an iguana and a dwarf Indian." - best line of "We Bought A Zoo"

Anyhoo... it's a total bummer that this film has never had some sort of special edition, and the blu-ray doesn't correct that mistake. I want extras.

Looking forward to seeing my copy arrive - hopefully tomorrow. Theatrically, this was a tremendous experience in 70mm and a 6 track magnetic soundtrack. Simply sublime in fact.

I liked the cover that was on the VHS tape.

cover IS weird... good thing it wont affect the film at all for me!

Chintzy release: BD 25, eco, & only a trailer.
Hope WB makes a lot of $$$ off this; cause this is the type of flick that could've been a digi.

Love the film. Went ahead and ordered a copy of the actual novel to check out, too.

Dick Smith did the phenomenal make-up special effects. It's weird seeing William Hurt in this, because it was his first major role and he was only 30 years old at the time.

Default Audio!

Did anybody actually watch this? The audio sync is WAYYY off from the video. It's unbearable! Reviewer ... no comments about that??

I noticed somebody somewhere else mentioned this with the DVD release.

I'm pissed. Got a bunch of friends coming over tonight to watch this. Hopefully I can adjust the audio delay on my receiver.
