Default Why are they re-releasing Babel ?

I own Babel on Blu-Ray and I was just wondering why they were re-releasing it, I never knew it left. Are they adding something to the new release ? Thanks

no. they left blu for hd, thus they removed all blu titles off the shelves. Now they are just simply putting them back into rotation. Nothing new

MI Trilogy isnt that great PQ/AQ wise, no lossless on any of them, and mpeg2 encodes for the video. Im waiting for a double dip on them.

Ok. I bought the movie this past week, and I did'nt even open it, when I noticed it had ZERO features on it. I ended up returning back to the store. They should at least include the trailer or something..........

I just rented this movie and though it was a good story, although a bit preachy and stereotyped many nations. I could see myself rewatching this, it's easy to watch and explosions aren't happening every 5 minutes, sometimes that's a good thing. If I find the BR ~ 14-15 then might buy it.

Seriously? You've got the complete movie in your hands, but not being able to see the 45 second trailer as part of the "Bonus" features spoiled the deal.

Funny^^^

Anyways i watched it today before i ebayed it. Must say putting aside all the crap talk from here its one of the best films I have seen since Crash. I think they overdid it with the nudity, I dont think the extent was needed to clarify the film, but did provide asomething to talk about.

One of films that make you wonder how your actions can affect so many? You can take any example in life and show how doing one thing impacts so many lives. Amazing.
