If you've got this still sitting on your shelf, you're in for a real treat when you get round to watching it. :)

I watched mine today and the transfer is superb - one of the best I've ever seen. It's sharp, it's colourful, it has great levels of detail and I didn't spot a single compression artefact!

Transfers like Jackie Brown, Monsters Inc and Shrek make you realise that interlaced NTSC can look stunning when the transfers are done this well! :)

They're very good :) Similar to the Pulp Fiction extras.

You get:

40 min documentary discussing the adaptation of Jackie Brown from Elmore Leonard's "Rum Punch" book plus behind the scenes stuff.

A 50 min in-depth interview with QT himself

The "Chicks with Guns" video that Samuel L Jackson and Robert De Niro are watching at the start of Jackie Brown

Deleted and alternate scenes (6 in total)

The review of Jackie Brown on "Siskel & Ebert At the Movies"

Jackie Brown on MTV

Trailers, TV spots and radio spots (including Robert Forster and Pam Grier specific ones)

Still galleries

Still-frame reviews and articles

Filmographies

Links to each song in the movie

Trivia track can be turned on during the movie

DVD-ROM features - enhanced playback, trivia game and screenplay viewer (I haven't tried these yet but they look great!)

Plus if you buy the Canadian R1 like I did then you'll also be blessed with a French soundtrack, French writing on the cover and in the booklet, and even multi-angle opening and closing credits so you can watch them in French as well - isn't that great? ;) :D (no kidding either!)

Definitely worth the dosh Mac IMO - plus the transfer itself will be way better. DTS too if you like that sort of thing.

:D I love the use of multi-angle French - pure genius :D They did the same thing on the Unbreakable Vista Edition and also on Pulp Fiction SE :D

No. You can get it 25p cheaper by going via www.cd-wow.com/192 ;)

I've just seen it at www.absound.ca for what works out to be £14 delivered. However, it's out of stock and, more importantly, given the delicate packaging of this DVD it would be a hassle having to return it to Canada if it gets smashed up during transit (as quite a few people's Tarantino SEs have).

AB Sound ship in sturdy boxes. It's thicker board than amazon use.
Wouldn't it be out of stock because it's not actually released yet officially?
Anyway, AB ship out international orders on the Friday before release and they usually only take about 3 days to arrive. Most of my AB preorders are in my hands on the Monday of the week of release

I agree Rambo. I use them myself and they're excellent.

When you order a single DVD you are right, they use tough cardboard boxes of a similar ilk to CD-WOW's. If you order 2 DVDs, then they use a tough international jiffy bag.

However, given that my Pulp Fiction SE arrived with a crack disk from CD-WOW (who also shipped it in a tough cardboard box), I myself wouldn't order this DVD from abroad because if it arrives damaged, then it's a real hassle to return it (and few would refund international postage costs for doing so).

In my mind, it's better to pay the extra £1.75 to CD-WOW or whoever. But each to their own. :)

My multiple-disc orders still come in cardboard boxes, so I guess it varies from order to order.

Really? :eek: Weird :confused: I never put more than 2 in an order though - but I always get a grey padded bag. Maybe they don't like me :( Or they ran out of the boxes.

If anyone wants a sturdier package then Movietyme are selling the US version for £16.99 this is what I went for. The card sleeve is very stiff and much thicker than that used by Alliance in Canada. Also English only cover.

If however you want R2 Blockbuster are doing it for £13.99 which is £1 less than Play.
