Very nice transfer on the picture especially with the colors to the details on the make-up wearing crooks like Little Face for example and the sound is great especially the sound like the music for example.

Who else saw this in theaters as a kid? i did when i was 9 about 4 times and loved it as it was one of my favorite comic based movies. I had all the cards (have them in an album), t-shirt, poster, hat, Mcdonalds cups, 4 of the toys, magazine and all that.

This movie was like Sin City of the 90s, who agrees? i mean similar with the crime saga feel with comic book look to it like in comics and make-up and all that.

This movie had a nice all star cast like Al Pacino who is fantastic and hilarious as Big Boy Caprice, Dustin Hoffman was great as Mumbles yet he reminded me of his Rain Man character somehow. Mandy Patakin was neat as 88Keys and he was a good singer in the film no doubt, Charles Durning was perfect for the chief and had his Francis Griffen accent for it. And so much more.

Me too. I was 10 years old and since I was a big madonna fan at that time I loved the film and all the aesthetics which reminded me a bit of Tim Burton.
I love those times.. I wish I could be a kid again, and watch for the first time all these movies..

I did aswell. Fond memories of watching this. I still have a metal police badge that was released around the same time. I also wanted to get a watch that was out but couldn't afford it. I this a few years ago as the BFI had a season of Comic book hero films. At the time there was a strong rumour of a VISTA release.
I always remember seeing a making of feature and Beatty saying how close that exploding car behind was when he was doing that shot in the end shoot out.

Who agrees this movie is similar to Sin City?

The make-up effects are fantastic and LittleFace looks kind of like Thunder from Big Trouble in Little China when Thunder inflated.

Speaking of Madonna, i gotta say that she was quite sexy in this movie as Breathless Mahoney and when i was 9 seeing this in theaters, when she came out in that black see-through nightgown (remember that scene especially with her epic tits nearly visible?), holy shit! one of those scenes in a movie that ushered me to manhood,

I've compared Sin City to Dick Tracy on more than one occasion. Prior to Sin City...which really is the perfect translation of page to screen...Dick Tracy was probably the one film that went the furthest toward presenting itself as a live-action comic strip. The Sunday Edition-inspired color palette is amazing.

I just found this video of Sooner or Later at the Oscars, and says it's a Laser Disc edit!!
So, the laserdisc had extras, including this song?

Madonna 03.25.91 - The Academy Awards (Sooner Or Later - laserdisc edit) - YouTube
I don't think this was from a Dick Tracy release. The Academy Awards released a video compilation at some point in the 90's showcasing highlights from the history of the Oscars ceremonies. I used to own the VHS, and this edit is the exact same one, with the same cheesy graphics in the beginning. It's possible it was released on LaserDisc as well.

Yeah, the Dick Tracy LD had no special features, though I think it was in CAV format

Anyone know if the slipcover for this movie is OOP? I'm wondering if I should order it from amazon or not.

I just saw this at Best Buy yesterday with other Disney movies that had been out a while, and they all had their original slips. Not all of Disney's back catalog, just some.

It looks like it's on sale for about $13 on Amazon, so maybe it's back at Best Buy for that price as well?

I own the film and don't use the slips, so if you get one without a slip I'll send it to you for cost of shipping if you want.

Is there artwork on the inside of the steel edition or is it just plain metal? I have the regular US edition but would sell it and buy the steel if its done right.
ISO : Original Capitol / EMI IRON MAIDEN Cd's from the 1980's. PM me.

If you order through Amazon it's a 50/50 chance you will not get the slipcover.
