Found this to be a little disappointing after the excellent Pulp Fiction… and the lack of extras didn't help. Plus, half way through the film I had to get up off the sofa, walk all the way to DVD player, press eject, turn the disc over, press close, walk all the way back to sofa, only to discover that I couldn't get as comfortable as before, and then watch the 2nd half of the movie. all in all - why the hell are these flipper discs still around?!?!

They really should make a 2 disc special edition of this disc… oh, wait a minute… they did! Fans of the film should go for the SE and avoid this at all costs. Video and audio are actually pretty good, but the flipper aspect and lack of extras make this one to avoid, even if it much cheaper than the 2 disc set at the moment!
