1.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Version Coming Soon, July 2 2004
Special edition? I don't think so. Every DVD release nowadays is a "Special Edition". Let it be known that a Directors Cut with tons of deleted scenes edited back into the film will be released on DVD as well in December or early 2005. Talk about double-dipping.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Deserves a Much, Much Better DVD Treatment Than This, May 6 2004
This review is from: Death Becomes Her (DVD)
Where is the Anamorphic Widescreen Transfer? This very funny black comedy with great special effects was even nominamted for an Oscar for Best Visual Effects back in 1992 (I'm not sure, but I could almost swear that it also won). This DVD is an absolute embarrassment and in no way reflects on what a great film this is.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 When Television Had Imagination, April 13 2004
Remember before they dumbed down television for the masses with "Reality TV"? It's hard to believe these days that imagination ever existed on American television sets. The over 30 crowd will remember well with the DVD release of Wonder Woman: Season One. Shows like this captured the imagination and paved the way for some of the more recent (although already canceled) shows of today like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, The Flash, The X-Files, Firefly-just to name a few. A Massive outcry from the fans is what made this DVD release possible, so the sale numbers are very important, or other classic shows like The Bionic Woman or The Six Million Dollar Man may never see the light of day in the DVD format .
Did I mention that this season, set during World War II, was the best season of Wonder Woman?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Where is the Special Edition?, Feb. 6 2004
Everyone knows how great this film is so I'm not going to comment. What I want to know is where the promised Special Edition is of this film? The alternate ending and other cut scenes for this film was only shown on broadcast television. These include the sub-plot including Soda Pop's pregnant girlfriend and the original ending right after the last rumble. "...look at the kid," as Pony Boy faints and wakes up in the hospital, and then he and his brothers go to court for the custody hearing (before he starts writing the book). All these scenes are there. The DVD distributor promised a Special Edition in 2003....

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Warning....You Will Want More If you Buy This, Jan. 19 2004
After finally being able to see all the episodes in the order they were meant to be seen, I am really, really PO'd at Fox for messing up another brilliant series (remember The Tick, Freaky Links & The Family Guy?). Fox only wants dumb reality shows these days. They cost nothing to produce. They don't have to pay any talented actors, writers or effects shops any money. So until America tunes OUT the reality shows (don't watch them!), amazing shows like this will never have a chance. When you are finished watching this series (I was hooked by episode 2), you will feel the same way. These episodes are not enough. This series should have had a long, long run, just as Whedon's BTVS and Angel. Joss Whedon wants to release a feature film of this series in the next year or two. Let's keep our fingers crossed that this gets done and the person(s) that gave this show the axe will eat crow.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Shocked it's Not in Widescreen, Jan. 7 2004
This is a Special Edition? Shame. Shame. This version has been visually edited to rip you off and only show you half of the picture. The previous release in Widescreen is much better (if you can find it).

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Wait for Widescreen Edition, Dec 11 2003
They should've got it right the first time and released this in Anamorphic Widescreen. This DVD is a waste of money. Serious collectors such as myself will not buy standard DVDs because we know about the Widescreen advantage and about the US Conversion to HDTV in 2006.

On DVD? I can think of other television shows that are much more worthy of DVD treatment than this. One tv critic was quoted as saying that this show was like, "watching someone die slowly of cancer". I saw clips a few times and agree. Anna Nicole is a sad, sad human being...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Theatrical Cut vs Expanded Edition, Dec 8 2003
I always thought this film worked well enough on itï¿s own, except for the painfully miscast doe-eyed Winona Ryder and some dark humor that didnï¿t fit in to the mix. Despite critical and commercial success, it took a beating from ï¿die hardï¿ fans of the series who simply want all sequels to be a clone of Cameronï¿s ALIENS. The newer version has some nice extended scenes (including a rather touching reference to Newt) and a better ending that promises ALIEN V, but the cheesy CGI insect introduction couldï¿ve been left out, as well as other key CGI alien sequences. I have no complaints about the extras as there are hours worth.
One other reviewer (on the QUADRILOGY box Set) commented on what he perceived to be a mistake on the Extended Edition. He claimed that after Johner throws the knife into Vriessï¿ leg that Vriess pulls it out and throws it at Johner, then Call (again) pulls it out and breaks it. The way the scene actually plays is that Vriess throws the wrench he was using at Johner, then Call pulls the blade out of Vriessï¿ thigh and breaks it. Some people seem so quick to nitpick, when they obviously werenï¿t really paying attention.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Assembly Cut vs Original Theatrical Version, Dec 8 2003
The new "Assembly Cut" shows hints of what could've been before FOX ultimately took the film away from David Fincher and butchered it. I personally would've preferred a hybrid of the two versions, without a CGI alien, which just isn't scary. With the inclusion of the Rottweiler host subplot, which had much more of an emotional impact than that of the infected Oxen. An actual shot of the dead Newt in the EEV (shown only in the theatrical version), and the birth of the Queen at the end (again shown only in the theatrical version). Though the opening sequences on the beaches of the prison planet are astounding. There is also much more (needed) character development here as well throughout the body of the film and a major new subplot regarding the actual capture of the ALIEN. I admit that the original intended ending had a better optical effect. Everything is shown to scale and you actually see Ripley's body entering the molten lead and burning up. The revamped version, done at the last hour for the original theatrical version was more emotionally disturbing as Ripley grabs the Queen and embraces it, but was a bad optical effect because they did it rather quickly only a few weeks before the film was released. For this reason it was also terribly out of scale when it was redone. The film, nonetheless, as stated in Amazon's review above is still a flawed masterpiece.
The extras are an obvious compromise to what the producer of this DVD wanted to show the fans. FOX executives cut over 30 minutes out of the interviews because it showed them in a very poor light and aimed responsibility of the film's failure when it was released theatrically toward them. It also detailed their mistreatment of Fincher, by all who witnessed it. The extras promise an in depth look into what went wrong, but then there are many fade outs (no doubt what was cut out). This is sad. No doubt a perfect example of the all-powerful Hollywood Machine that is FOX, and the probable reason Fincher declined to participate in this release.
