I didn't like the original score and I sure as hell won't like it if Jay-Z touches it.  What the fuck is going on?  Are they on crack???

The Digital Bits has received confirmation from retail sources that Universal will be releasing a new Scarface: Collector's Edition on 9/30, along with a Scarface gift set that includes a re-done version of the original 1932 Scarface.

Scarface is a movie with many classic scenes...but I don't find the movie to be classic.

I love the soundtrack to Scarface...although
I had played Grand Theft Auto 3 before I saw the movie so I was going nuts when I saw that all the songs that I had liked in GTA3 was in Scarface.  I guess I'm backwards like that.

...and I heard they're digitally removing all the cocaine, so at the end it just looks like Tony is nodding to sleep on his desk.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Also, turns out Pacino was just a place-holder for the original hero of the film, Jabba the Hutt.  Now, with the wonders of CGI, we can finally have the film that the director originally envisioned.

Behold.  Huttface.

Actually, they're replacing all of the coke with three course meals, so everyone (including Pfeiffer) will be 200 lbs heavier (thank you CGI!)  :-D

P.S. So that means the final shootout scene will have a title card reading: "The Last Supper"

Fully agree. The original score is so awful but Jay-Z would be a step in the wrong direction. Just leave Scarface be !!!

Does anyone else feel guilty ? I spent so many countless nights thinking of how even more awesome Scarface would have been with a different score but now God is trying to teach me a lesson. Fork !!!

if they did do this, wouldnt it be more like "alt audio channel" instead of replacing the whole thing. just like a commentary track, so it wouldnt really bother anybody in the first place?  plus, have you seen CRIBS?! there are more rappers out there who love this movie than film geeks the world over.  this dvd is for them.  personally, i found it frightening how many of them look up to HIM as a sort of role model for cool.
