    Well, I must say - this DVD's gotten overwhelmingly positive reviews.

    Makes me want it more.

    I'm glad this review has pictures comparing widescreen to fullscreen. Other reviews have described this DVD's fullscreen as a cropped version if the already-cropped widescreen.

    ...I am very happy to see that this is not the case.

    After seeing the comparison pics, I'm starting to change my mind about not liking the color changes. I think the Sony fullscreen version is going to become the 'definitive version' for me. Can't wait for it to arrive!

    Good that the full is as much if not more picture as the Rhino, and looks quite a bit better than too. Kind of sucks that the full screen isn't quite as sharp as the wide (or even the same colors) though.

    They forgot about the R4 release by Madman. Shameful.

    Wow. The Sony fullscreen version looks AWESOME!

    That'll be the variety I watch. :)

    Yeah, the full screen looks pretty awesome. It seems that they left it alone for the most part - they didn't color "correct" it, which is fine by me. Can't wait to see it in the flesh :)

    Sorry, I was only able to compare the ones I own.
    I don't know if I'd call that "shameful", though.

    Does anyone else think that all these positive reviews of a movie we can't buy yet is torture?

    Is like everyday there's a new frontpage article about someone else saying TFTM by Sony/BMG is the best movie evar! Torture, I say! Torture!

    Wait.... isn't Phil your name? :p

    Erm... Doesn't the audio for this clearly exist, as it was used on both UK and Australian DVDs? If so, why wasn't it used, as it has a few alternate lines of dialogue from Lional Stander's Kup, and unlike the original Scramble City soundtrack, is already in English

    The music in that trailer is taken from another movie. They probably (and rightly) felt including it would open them up to lawsuits since Sony does not have the rights to that movie.

    Looks like they went back and corrected it.

    Ahh, the Star Trek III score. Still, I do wonder just how both Metrodome (or was it Maverick, can't recall) and Madman were able to release the promo with the soundtrack. Surely they didn't just release it on the sly, along with the uncensored commercials? :) 

    I guess it's also worth asking, is the movie promo on the new DVD from a fresh source, or does it have all the Japanese text over it from the LD release?

    Licensing works differently in the U.S. Also, if Paramount is made aware of it (if they aren't already) they could easily sue Metrodome and Madman. It's also possible those companies were unaware of the origin of the music. It depends on how much research they did. Sony wanted to cover their bases as well as possible.

    I think it's without the text. I can't remember as I watched all the special features in one sitting so a lot of the stuff is blurring together right now. I can check the DVD when I get home from work.
