The original, though flawed, is a powerful piece of work. The remake sucks.

This comment has made me want to re-watch the original again.

I rewatched the 1971 film and it's pretty great still. The DVD that the media library at school had though was missing a scene or part of a scene. Where Hoffman is hitting the man on the floor repeatedly and then it goes into a slow motion shot of him hitting what is assumed to be his head. The slow motion shot isn't in the film even though on the back of the DVD it claims to be the unrated version. Or maybe I am just imagining it but I could of swore the first time I seen it, that scene was present.

1971 is coming to Criterion blu. Probably the announcement will be made next week for a June release.

They got the rights back? Interesting.... and certainly good news. Then again, the current Blu-ray I have is good quality and this is just another example of a Peckinpah film that has already been released in a good version on blu-ray yet again being re-released. When are we going to see some new Peckinpah stuff that hasn't seen a Blu-ray release yet?

The extras are what will make the Criterion worth having--the Stephen Prince commentary (which was on the DVD and I expect will be re-used) is worth getting if you don't already have it.

Quality extras are always nice, but I will wait to see if any picture upgrade makes it worth the investment. Otherwise, I think I'll stick with my current BD.

You weren't kidding.

I'll wait for some screencaps to see if it is worth double-dipping.
