Because I'm afraid it got lost in the Michael Mann debate, I'll repost it here:

Heat SE Due 2/22

Details on Warner Home Video's forthcoming Heat two-disc special edition, the 1995 Michael Mann film starring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Val Kilmer.

Disc one will feature the film with a new transfer and remixed audio, plus a commentary by writer/director Michael Mann, plus three trailers. Disc two will contain the rest of the goodies.

*11 additional scenes

*Five new making-of documentaries featuring the cast and crew

*Return to the Scene of the Crime - Location Manager, Janice Polley, and Associate Producer, Gusmano Cesaretti, visit the real life LA locations used in the film

*Pacino and De Niro: The Conversation - Mann, cast and crew explore this historic on-screen showdown in the pivotal confrontation at Kate Mantellini's

*The Making of Heat: True Crime - Michael Mann and Chuck Adamson, Technical Advisor and real life inspiration for the Lt. Vincent Hanna character, discuss the Chicago crime scene and the events surrounding the real Neil McCauley (who Adamson took down in the late 60s) that inspired the film.

*The Making of Heat: Crime Stories - Mann, cast and crew discuss the twenty year origin of the script, the film's genesis and the complexity of the characters portrayed on screen

*The Making of Heat: Into the Fire - Mann, cast and crew discuss training for their roles, filming in LA, shooting the climatic downtown heist and post production.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

DVDAnswers:

"Well, here comes a suspiciously well timed release! Being rushed out to shops for release next month is Tsunami: Killer Wave which depicts nature at its most extreme, profiles the efforts being made to curb its effects and illustrates the financial, physical and emotional toll it can leave on its victims. The disc will be available to own from the 22nd February, and should retail at around $19.98. I should point out that a portion of National Geographic's net proceeds from sales of this DVD will be donated to tsunami relief funds to help the victims of the recent tsunami disaster. Just a month after the tsunami in Asia, you'd think they'd be giving all proceeds toward the disaster fund - but what do I know!"

Guess you don't visit the Scorsese forum.

wtf? no Scorsese commentary?
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.

From the digital bits:

"Also, Warner apparently revealed to the USA Today yesterday that it plans to release a Controversial Classics Collection on DVD on 5/10. The set will include I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang (1932), Fury (1936), Bad Day at Black Rock (1955), Blackboard Jungle (1955), A Face in the Crowd (1957), Advise and Consent (1962) and The Americanization of Emily (1964). Each of these films dealt with "controversial" topics like race, homosexuality, violence, etc. On disc, each title is expected to include bonus materials specifically addressing the film's impact and legacy. We're waiting to hear more on this from the studio officially."


BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK....goddamn, I've been waiting this DVD since 1998.

Great, great news. Fantastic, really.
Maybe every day is Saturday morning.

maybe it will have the infamous commentary PTA talks about, but considering the commentary belongs to Criterion and Warners is releasing this DVD, don't bet on it.
