Can't wait for my Zavii steelbook with the iconic artwork.

Glad I didn't buy the normal edition before so that I can get the steelbook without worrying how I should get rid of the old one.

I don't think any New Line films that have had a blu ray release have been re-released and BN seems to be one of the better ones both in terms of picture/audio quality as well as the extras.

PTA seems to have abandoned the very concept of bonus materials for his later films.

I thought that artwork was just horrible even if it is the "iconic artwork"!

I might have bought it had it not been something like Scooby Doo.
You don't look ready

Making-of featurettes are the most important component of good special features for me. I want to hear the actors/directors/critics talk about the story in a way that gives me new insight into the film.

Director's commentary is cool, but usually only use it once then never again.

...don't really care about deleted scenes.

...they were usually deleted for a good reason.

Personally, I think every single deleted scene from this movie is pure gold. But, the movie already weighed in at over 2 and a half hours, so I can understand that something had to go.

I'm so sick of this question. 99% of Blu-rays look better than their DVD counterpart. Period.

I'm going to have to go back and watch the deleted scenes again. It has been a long time. I know I had watched the movie so many times I wanted to give it a rest for a few years.
Stop the Replacing of original Studio Opening / Closing logos! These are becoming endangered and should be kept intact. They are part of film history.

Have you seen the deleted scenes for Boogie Nights? They're great and tremendously entertaining, some as good as anything that made the final cut. They were cut for pacing reasons mostly, and understandably. The movie is definitely better without them, but I'm so happy that we have them to enjoy.

My local Alamo showed this back in January I think. What an experience to finally watch this classic on the big screen. My local art house theater is showing it next month, can't wait to go again.

You don't have to wait till next month to see it again! You've got the Blu-ray at home, you can watch it anytime you want.

They're pretty good, but I just don't get much out of watching a hodgepodge collection of disjointed scenes that have little to no context because they're not in the movie.

If I have to choose between a great making-of featurette and/or retrospective or great deleted scenes, the choice is pretty easy.
