And what is it that I want from these special editions? The Theatrical Version!
One of the things that drives me up the wall with DVDs is when the extended cut doesn't come with the original theatrical release. If you go mucking about with a movie, I still want to be able to enjoy the film as it was seen by movie-goers. Star Wars fans were pissed off when George Lucas released the original trilogy on DVD without the original versions; we didn't want the Special
Editions that were released in the late 90s, and we definitely didn't want a heavily edited Special Edition (remember Hayden Christensen put in place of Sebastian Shaw?).
What about you? What is the one thing you want in a special edition release of your favorite movie?
