4.0 out of 5 stars Whoa....this is a Special Edition!!!!, Nov. 11 2011
Surprise, surprise!

This Steelbook edition of From Dusk Till Dawn is a full fledged Special Edition!

Imagine my shock in actually opening an Alliance disk and discovering that:
1) It seem to be sporting a brand new transfer, deeper blacks and more saturated and natural colors compared to the previous bare bones edition.
2) There is a brand new menu with the following features (as per back cover) - Feature commentary with Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino; Outtakes; Featurette; Theatrical Trailer; Music Video; and more.....(sorry I have to load the disk in my player again to get the full list).

However, the feature length doc 'Full Tilt Boogie' is still absent from this package.

The specs all appear to be the same as before - 1.85:1 AR and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.

I'm not a pro reviewer so I cannot give a precise breakdown or a scene by scene analysis of the new picture quality, but it looks pretty damn nice on my 50" plasma and thats good enough for me.

(BTW, the package also includes the DVD as well.....Meh!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Finally, Scream Trilogy on Blu-Ray!, Aug. 5 2010
For anyone who's interested in this release, being that it's a Canadian only release for Blu-Ray, it is not too bad a release for Alliance and good that finally all 3 Scream movies are available on hi-def and at a pretty good price (approx $10 per movie/disc).
The packaging impressed me on this release. It comes in a nice sturdy slipsleeve with the artwork embossed in shiny red against a nice blue background. The discs (3 total) are all housed in a dual foldout cardboard packaging inside, with disc one on the left side of the foldout and discs 2 & 3 are housed one on top of the other on the right side.
All 3 movies come on individual BD25 discs and are all 'barebones' - no trailers, or features whatsoever, so hang on those SE DVDs if you still need to have the Special Features.
However, video is quite nice, the package indicates 1080i, but I cannot confirm. There appears to be grain present and ALL three movies come in the OAR of 2.35:1.
A little surprise for me came as I also discovered that all 3 movies come with audio flavors in English 5.1 DTS HD-MA, and 5.1 DD (note that the back of the box only claims DD 5.1).
Until there is another truly definitive release of this trilogy, for both audio and picture quality, and for the price makes it an easy upgrade.
