  Is this release gonna be the long talked about special edition that has been released everywhere except the US?  If so, I'd be interested to hear more about it.

  Otherwise, I'll stick with my mgm widescreen dvd with the trailer.

If you mean in picture terms then the quality will be much better, there will also be more space for soundtracks and certain soundtracks will be enhanced for HD format (Dolby Digital HD for instance). Mainly more room on the disc itself.

The German DVD is the version to beat all versions.

I guess this never happened.

Is blue ray some new form of dvd?
i dont see what is wrong with the form we have now.
it seems like a big scam to go buy another form of dvd player.

As Poggle says get the German version(preferably in the wooden box set if the wife or your wallet allows you too).

Blue Ray is another form of HD DVD in which, like the name says, a blue ray is used to read info off the discs.

I believe Blue Ray disc's can hold more data. Thats pretty much the difference.

Its always the same our favourite movies seem to have somthing extra added almost monthy a minute here a minute there, higher quality or diffrent box, missing scenes you name it the film companies know just the ticket to squeeze the buck out of us.
My wife has given up asking me why I need the Good the Bad and the Ugly on VHS DVD and so on and all the variations from around the world not to mention a whole stack of soundtracks that fill my CD cabinet and LP box
But when anything new comes out I get the sweats and shakes my eyes go slitty like angel eyes and like a sucker I forget to duck and reach for my wallet
God help us we Spaghetti lovers need a grave full of gold to keep up with it all

A word about the blu-ray format, and why I am so excited about it: Resolution! much more of it, to be exact:
A Movie (as you know, with 24 frames a second) is encoded on DVD as digital pictures with 720 by 480 pixels. For cinemascope/techniscope, the format Leone has been using, where you have the black bars on the top and bottom, this goes down to 720x360 for anamorphic (16:9) images, and even around 720x270 for non-anamorphic (4:3) DVDs. Not very many pixels...

On Blu-Ray, pictures can be encoded as 1080p, that is 1920x1080 pixels. Subtracting the black bars, you end up with 1920x810 pixels holding actual image information, or 6 times as many pixels as the DVD counterpart.

Then you could send these pictures untouched to e.g. a good video projector or HDMI plasma/LCD TV, as 1080p24, or SourceDirect as they call it in BluRay. Crisper picture than you've ever seen.

By the way, the BluRay disc of FAFDM is already listed on amazon.com, sign up for the notification e-mail to show your interest in Leone on BluRay!
