It’s probably going to be like with “Sleepless in Seattle” where it’s a pressed MOD like Warner Archive.

The UK’s WB version is still available for cheap (£5.49 at Amazon UK, currently) and is Region Free. When comparing apples to apples, it’s a much better option. In my opinion.

Maybe it will boast a newer and better transfer?

Ha! I was just about to say the same. I'm keeping tight my France release from Metropolitan Film, even though, it has 2.35:1 aspect ratio instead of the original 2.40:1.

To be honest, I wouldn't count on that. Not by the long shot.

I doubt it since it's a MOD and it doesn't advertise a new transfer.

With what happened with "Sleepless in Seattle" (Where it was the same old TT and Sony International transfer) I don't think these Sony MOD releases are going to get the same kind of treatment from Sony's main releases.

So does this mean Sony got the Morgan Creek catalog?

Now, what to do with my extra copy of the real disc? Keep as backup in case, or sell off cheap since I got it cheap?

I'm also noticing 2 featuretttes and a photo gallery on the WB disc are not listed here. Other than that it sounds like a BD-r of the existing disc. Can't imagine a new transfer on something like this, and a true shame this classic film is relegated to MOD status.

What a slap in the face this release is. This film deserves a quality collectors edition which includes the theatrical cut.

Got my hopes up there for a minute. How did Sony get the rights to this anyway? I'll just hold out for an updated 4K transfer. Hell, even a remastered blu ray would be great.

I don't think Sony has them all, as I've heard Shout Factory owns a good chunk of the Creek catalog too.

I'm actually really surprised that Shout didn't land this title. This would've been a "Collector's Edition" double-dip that most people would've actually been excited about.

And as for the Morgan Creek catalog, I don't care if it's Sony or Shout, bring me Pacific Heights, White Sands and Young Guns II.

True Romance is a true classic. I first watched this on VHS tape several times back in 1994/1995, when I was in college - long before I saw any of the films Tarantino actually directed (Pulp Fiction, etc.). Excellent dialogue & story, and is one of the few films I've seen that really stayed with me long after I my initial viewing. It's also a film that I've enjoyed more on each subsequent viewing.

Too many great scenes/sequences to highlight, but here are some:

Gary Oldman stole the scene(s) he was in; what a true sleazebag - and I mean that in a good way . At the time, I'm not sure I realized he was a British actor, especially considering he disappeared into his "urban pimp" role so well

The dialogue between Christopher Walken & Dennis Hopper in the trailer was very grim (since you knew what was going to happen to Hopper), but extremely funny & un-PC as well; difficult dichotomy to pull off, but was done extremely well here

The scene when the James Gandolfini gangster character
[Show spoiler] describes the first time he offed someone is extremely disturbing but also sublime; the dialogue & acting were so realistic here, that it seemed like he was describing something that he himself had actually done (and not just an actor reciting lines). Incredible.


Good soundtrack. I'm not an Aerosmith fan by any means, but "Take me to the Other Side" fit the scene(s) it played over so well that I think it was probably the best song for this sequence. Plus, the song came out in '89, so this music typified the era to some extent as well.

The only people buying this are inmates just freed from a 25 year prison stint, folks waking out of a coma or second chancers who sold their old copy for a pack of smokes. Everyone else who has a modicum of interest in this film already has what appears to be the only edition ever planned for home video.

The Choice Collection line seems to be discontinued.
