Okay it's bad enough
when they release what has become known as the "bare bones" disc first
and then follo it up, with a features laden disc months later.
But it really hurts when they release a Special Edition and then An Ultimate Edition with a few more extras.
Like American Pie and The Mummy.
And what they did with Reindeer games was a travesty!
Theyre lucky those of us who like Affleck shelled out the 19.99 for that piece, but then theyr release a Director's Cut???
With a different commentray, with a different making of.
But this is the one that takes the cake,
MGM has stopped production on the Criterion Colelctions Of Silence of the Lambs and Robocop and are issuing their own Special editions that don't nearly have the same content as the Criterions. in the case Of Silence of the Lambs you dont get the director's commentary. and In Robocop, you lose out on The X-Rated version. Those of us who were too stupid to get it earliy on are nock stuck with these shallow MGM versions.
