Dazed & Confused / Fast Times -- special editions?

#1 Post by alan smithee » 20 May 2004, 13:43

It looks like September 14th, you will be able to get Dazed and Confused (Flashback Edition) or Fast Times and Ridgemont High (Special Edition) for $13.99 (each). Or even a two-pack ("The Ultimate Party Collection") with both for $19.59.

Does anyone know anything about the special features on these?
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

From a UK website but I expect the additional content will be the same for all regions.

Does it really matter? Though I suppose it would be great if they included the EFT version of Fast Times.

I'll be the first in line for the Tupac.
La la la la la.

If only EFT stuff wasn't station specific ... I'd love that on some movies, esp. "Mr. Hand! You nerd!" and "... gets up to 88 miles per hour, you're gonna see some serious stuff!" Audio and video. There are some scenes in Airplane!, for example, that only appear on some TV versions (and aren't on the DVD).
