This is one of those movies I've see so many times over the years that I cannot justify buying. It's on TV every other week and I already have it on DVD.

I passed on $15 Batman (1990) and The Matrix BD's at Walmart the other day for the same reason.

certainly only worth rebuying if they have redone it.
I guess it will now have HD audio so that's a consideration I guess.

Best movie ever. Or, best movie of its type anyways. I'll hang onto my HD DVD version for now though. No need for any extra BS.

About the film - How this lost the best picture award to that boring, tripe Kevin Costner crap "Dances with Boredom...err...Wolves" is focking beyond me. A total farce in Academy Awards voting.

Then they give Scorcese a "make up" award for the absolutely horrible "Departed" which was a comedy film at best. Great head-explosions though at the end... it was like Dawn of the Dead.

i agree with you that goodfellas got one of the worst best picture shafts but i completely disagree with you about the departed, which is my absolute #1 of all time. of course, you are road lizard and this is not surprising in the least.

back to the 20th edition, i'll pass cuz i have both the hd dvd and the blu-ray because when hd dvd died i had a short mental breakdown and wanted to change all the bd. fortunately, i got over it. kinda surprised to see this and curious to what the cover art will be if it's any different.

This is one of those that I will never change the channel on it I happen to cross it channel surfing. I sit there and think I'll watch it for a few since I've seen it so many times ... right. Would absolutely buy it if the Blu-ray offers any sort of upgrade to the DVD.

I think I'll get it, even though I have the Blu-ray already (and used to have the HD-DVD). At least, I will if it is a Digibook like I expect it will.

Not really sure about this. I already own the hd dvd and have actually watched it a couple times in the last few weeks. The only way I would rebuy is if it was completely restored, and came in some cool special edition case.
