    For those that are interested in picking this up on 10/3,
    you may want to know about a special pack-on bonus disc that will be
    available at Wal*Mart with 50 minutes of behind-the-scenes material (especially since the dvd itself is next to bare bones as far as bonus features, and the "Collector's Edition" is simply the 1-disc dvd packaged with a bonus comic book!)
    Here ya go:

    Also, just for reference in case you decide to hold out for the inevitable
    Fox double-dip, director Brett Ratner says there is definately a loaded X3:SE disc one on the way! No time-table for that yet, though!

    On a side note, I'm pretty sure "Thank You For Smoking" comes out on the same day. I'm going to be so broke that day... though I might wait for the special edition X3.

    I'm kinda ticked that the special features are not being included with the regular disc. Isn't that why DVD was made? And you would think with the millions they spent, there had to be at least one film crew taking BTS stuff. Just a ploy to get you to buy 2 different versions. I think agrre with Travis, wait for the special edition. Or download it. Not that I would ever do that or anything...... [face_whistling]

    And I am glad to see that Disney changed the cover for The Little Mermaid. Remember the old VHS cover with the giant phallic symbol in the background? Genius.

    Man, that was offensive. Phallic symbols don't belong in Disney movies about sexy, drenching wet teenaged red heads with sea shells pasties. It just crosses the line! SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!

    Back on topic, I tell ya, it's going to be Hell to wait for SE X3. I loved that movie and I can't wait to own it.

    I agree with Travis, I really want X3, but I'll just have to hold out for it.

    Well, I don't know. I really don't want to wait. Do we know when this special edition is coming out?

    Either way, if the SE doesn't come out, the regular version of the movie will most likely hit 10 bucks by valentine's day. Besides, it can't be like waiting for the "The Whole Bloody Affair" version of Kill Bill. Still makes me mad that THAT isn't out yet...

    Just picked up X3 this morning and I've been watching the special features.
    If you can possibly wait, I recommend it. I am not very impressed with this edition. First off, it's full of previews. Like, three before you even get to the menu and then two more as options on the menu. (Which, in my opinion, ruins the menu screen. How can I take it seriously when you've got "Simpsons: The Movie" down at the bottom?)
    And the deleted scenes, which are how I justified buying this, are completely pointless. Most of them are nothing more then a single word change or an extra beet in a pause. For instance, in the scene where Mystique is disguised as the president on the truck, demanding to be released. In the theatrical version, the guard says "Mr. President ... Shut up." In the so-called deleated/extended scene, it's "Mr. President ... Shut the **** up." How dose that even count? And even worse still, the few scenes not like that are usually completely out of character! There are two scenes that portray Beast and Colossus as murderers. Seriously, Beast snaps a guy's neck and Colossus smashes a frozen dude. And here I thought superheros weren't supposed to kill people.
    So, yeah, I'm sure some of you will be like me and you'll just HAVE to have it NOW!!! But for those of you who don't mind waiting for the special editions, go for it.

    Thanks for the warning Travis. I was going to pick it up next week. But it looks like I will be waiting.

    I already decided to wait, as the cover art on the deluxe edition HAS TO BE better than this one. Of course, I also didn't want to have to buy the film twice. I'll just borrow Bill's copy. [face_whistling]
