Format: DVD
Basically this is a great movie to buy I am so glad to see this film at least back on DVD again I was sad to see a few months ago when I tried to purchase it the film was out of print but now MGM has released the DVD Special Edition of this film. First you have the film picture looks great nice widescreen version. That deleted scene features Dustin Hoffman escaping Tom Cruise trying to buy those infamous Cheese Balls he eats through out the film and Hoffman goes into the store and pulls that typical run of the mill "Rain Man" skit and the shopkeeper does not understand and Tom Cruise finds him and rescues him. That kind of part is shown in different places in the movie overall the scene lacks substance and once again like many of these DVD's with deleted scenes we can all clearly see why this little scene was taken out of the film. Now you have that commentary remember now it is 3 separate commentary tracks not a bunch of guys talking together. It would have been really nice for Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman to do a Commentary track but I guess Cruise was to busy with "The Last Sumarai" and Hoffman had to make his 100th movie by now. You get this Barry Levinson track which is probably the most useful good but not great. The other two commentary tracks feature I believe the guy who wrote the screenplay Ronald Bass if you have the time all 3 tracks probably are somewhat useful but also a little dull. Then you have a featurette from 1988!Read more ›

First - Amazon ROCKS! Ordered and received within a couple of days! Although I've watched this movie before, I wanted it in my blu-ray library and had decided to only purchase movies I LOVED and would watch repeatedly. Rain Man is one of those movies! What starts out as a scam as the one brother learns he has a Savant brother in an institution that has been awarded all their dad's money from his will, ends up with love and compassion but with a long road in between. Such a touching, funny and educational movie...a must buy!

"Rain Man" reigned in the 1988 "Best Picture" Academy Award, and deservedly so. This film is everything a "Best Picture" Oscar winner should be, in my view. It has tenderness, romance, drama, compassion, likeable characters, and a biting humor as well. It's a "road" picture, while at the same time encompassing so many other things too.
Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman give highly-memorable and powerful performances in "Rain Man". Some of the moments in the movie that I find particularly memorable (and deserving of multiple replays whenever loading this up into the DVD Player) include these ............
> The first meeting between "Charlie" and "Raymond", when Charlie finds Ray behind the wheel of his rare 1948 automobile (excellent "first meeting" of these characters).
> The "shorts on the highway" scene.
> "Qantas never crashed".
> The Blackjack scene in Vegas.
> "I like having you for my big brother".
This "SE" release of "Rain Man" includes an enhanced (anamorphic) 1.85:1 Widescreen version of the movie -- and it gets an A+ on my "PQ Report Card". The digital video is beautiful throughout, with radiant colors.
The audio comes through loud and clear via the disc's bold English 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround track. Two foreign-language DD tracks are also part of this DVD -- a 2.0 Surround in French, and a Spanish 2.0 Mono track.
The DVD Special Features are a wee bit on the light side for a so-called "Special Edition". Although, if you like Audio Commentaries, you've come to the right place with this "Rain Man" DVD.

"Rain Man" is one of those rare films that is equally touching and moving as it is humorous. A true labor of love for those involved, particularly its producers, director Barry Levinson, and star Dustin Hoffman, it remains an undated and compelling work, since its release sixteen years ago. By now most know that Hoffman was heavily praised for his dead-on portrayal of an autistic savant, winning an Oscar in the process. However, it is really Tom Cruise who is the heart and soul of the movie, portraying its true protagonist. His is a very underrated performance, one that reminds how accomplished an actor he can be when given the right dramatic role. Equally good is Levinson's direction, smartly exposing the humor on what could normally be viewed as overly sentimental material. Included is one brief and all to basic featurette with cast and crew interviews of the time. The one deleted scene featured is redundant of what's already in the movie. The DVD makes up for all of this however with the inclusion of three audio commentaries to choose from. In the end, the greatest strength of this package is the movie itself. Whether it was indeed the best film of 1988 is a point of debate. Nonetheless, it is likely to satisfy most viewers because its themes of greed, discovery and compassion are not only universal, but in this case, intelligently presented.
