    Director's cut or Theatrical ? I hope FOX offers both cuts via seamless branching.

    +1. I'd think this would be the case, especially given the entirely new (and very, very cool) cover art for this release: were it just the theatrical or extended, they'd likely repurpose the cover art from those releases for marketing consistency's sake. Here's hoping.

    A really great feature would be a way to reedit the DC, which makes some improvements over the TC but goes far, far too far in literalizing the time-travel tropes (and changes some music around that worked well in the TC). Sounds reasonable, right?

    the link shows "Widescreen 2.35:1 Color / Production Year: 2004 / Director's Cut"

    I'd be fine with just the director's cut, would not be fine with just the theatrical cut.

    Crap, I was hoping it's the original theatrical cut. I may have to re-consider... then again, the DVD's of both editions were dreadful.

    Yeah!

    Must buy! I hope the song selection remains as originally done for each version, too!


    And for anyone who has yet to see it, give it a shot. It will probably confuse you the first time around, but once you wrap your head around it, you'll love it. It has some really genius storytelling in it.


    Actually, I wonder if the Director/Screenwriter was aware of the complexity of what he was doing. In some interviews, he just laughs about it all, but if you dig philosophy, this one offers very good food for thought.


    I suddently got the urge to listen "Head over Heels", by Tears for Fears.

    yeah, this is one of the few times where the theatrical version is superior IMO. It appears both versions are on the blu-ray. Don't think I'll double dip for this one since I already own the theatrical and director's cut on DVD. I should have rented the director's cut... I watched it once and that was enough.

    If you have not seen it, Cox Cable San Diego is showing it in HD for free in the Free Zone HD On Demand until 10/31/08.
    Just watched it about 4 nights ago. The way I saw it, he is either a psychic or can travel back thru time.

    Or, more interestingly (for me), he might be schizophrenic. The DC makes that reading (a valid one in the theatrical cut) a veritable impossibility, which is one of the major problems I have with that version: while it's far more complex in its own, emphasized explanation of what's going on, it also shuts out the many other interpretive/analytical roads, making it ultimately less interesting across the board. I'm SO glad that both cuts are included.

    It's always been my contention that Richard Kelley channelled all of the ideas for this movie from some other, deeply mysterious source out there in the universe. If you listen to his three audio commentaries, it's painfully clear that he has no idea what the movie he wrote and directed is actually about. The Director's Cut is like Kelley's attempt to impose his own personality and dumb ideas onto this material whose genesis he will never really comprehend.

    After the second viewing, I found the movie to be quite comprehensible with a specific set of events that were set up in fantastic fashion. It's not until a second viewing that you realize how things were specifically manipulated to make the story progress as it did.

    The only issue I have with the story is the subplot with the little girl who adores him. For me, it had no value.

    I don't care for the Director's Cut at all. It spends the entire movie bashing you over the head with the ideas it wants you to understand. I "figured it out" for myself and always warn people away from seeing the Director's Cut for thier first viewing because it takes away any sense of confusion or wonder and answers very, very distinctly whether everything is/was real or not.
