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.

The remastered Dolby
Reason #15 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
This is THE magazine that presents all that I need to have to evaluate and buy equipment, know what’s up in the industry, and which provides a listing of DVD reviews and release schedules. In short, it is an almanac for reference, opinion, and knowledge. I must say that I have read just about every magazine that deals with home theatre that has been published. Widescreen is more professional, more comprehensive, and more up-to-date than the rest. I have read the rest, but I am staying with the best.
