American Beauty Update
I just felt I should mention the fact that there will be no deleted scenes on the R1 DVD of American Beauty since the director, Sam Mendes, felt that they detracted from the "mystery" of the film. Disappointing, I'm sure you will agree.
I should also add that the disc will contain both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS soundtracks, a trend which seems to be very much the coming thing. No word yet on whether it will be anamorphic or not.
