Extras on this Special Edition re-release include a seven-minute featurette, a deleted scene, a still gallery, and the trailer. There are also three audio commentary tracks, one by director Barry Levinson, another by co-writer Barry Morrow, and the third by co-writer Ronald Bass.
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a pleasantly improved picture when compared to the previously released DVD. While much of the picture is comparable, colors exhibit slightly better saturation with deeper blacks. Contrast gives the picture a more naturally balanced appearance, and shadow delineation is also nicely rendered. As with the previous DVD, some dirt is noticed in the source element. Edge enhancement is still an issue with this title, as well as minor smearing or detail loss. Pixelization is not much of a problem, with the picture often exhibiting a smooth appearance.

Reason #71 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Before reading WSR I was an electronics nebbish. After reading WSR for more than a year, my friends and family consult me on purchasing TVs, sound systems, DVD players, and DVDs. I explain to them the differences between HDTV ready and capable, how to select a TV, DVD, and sound system and recommend that they become an expert like me by buying a copy of WSR. My life has new meaning!
