    I was hoping for a longer cut, I'm glad I fell for the Superbit (DTS). I really like this movie but for some reason, I am not concerned about extras like I am with most movies I like. I thought the first release had an ample amount of extras. The 3rd release of the same movie should have been a longer cut.

    I woulda bought had it been an uncut print, but if it's just a remastered re-issue with different extras I'll pass.

    I love this movie.. not sure if i love any movie enough to double dip unless there is some strong nostalgic reason to... this movie is new so that reason aint there.. I think i'll give my original release a viewing and see if it's transfer is suficient.

    Yes it should have been uncut for that whole extra second...

    I really liked this movie, and it'll be worth it if it is $15 or under (which it will be first week of release), because the movie ticket to RS 2 will be worth $7-9 alone, and I planned on seeing the movie anyway!! I'm sure I can get at least $5 for the old one on Ebay. That would basically pay for the new one in full!!

    If it would have been an extended cut (ex. more story, not just gore) than I'd purchase this, other than that, I have no reason to upgrade.

    It says new High-Def transfer is this the superbit transfer???? I've been meaning to pick up the superbit edition (because I like quality not quantity) but if this has the same transfer I might just get it instead.

    I would bet that all 3 DVDs use the same source materials. The advantage to superbit is having no extras on it and using the extra space for a higher bitrate. So, if you want the superbit advantage, get the superbit release.

    Is there an uncut version out there somewhere then? Just curious. If its only 1 second cut then Im not too bothered but I would sooner have an uncut print. If not I would probably buy this one as I dont already own it.

    I think it was a good movie but I was stoned at the time I saw it!! :D

    Geez yet another DVD I will have to buy in September, its gonna be such an expensive month...

    I thought the RE2 trailer kicked ass. Sony knows how to put together trailers.

    If we're talking about the trailer that plays out like a commercial, then I thought it kicked ass as well.

    I am so excited to see this movie, the first one was great but I can't wait to see the carnage that will revel the genius of the Dawn of the dead remake. This trailer wet my unstopable thirst for more zombie films.

    I'm really looking forward to RE2.. I wish there was a proper trailer released.. but i guess it will just mean i'll enjoy the movie even more knowing very little about it

    I was hoping for the director's cut, this makes me doubt we'll ever get one. If they're not going to whip it out for RE2, I don't think they're ever pull that out until perhaps Blu-ray.

    To hell with it, I've got more imporant movies to pick up.
