Cool thanks, I 've just ordered it actually but I'm saddened they don't seem to have included the commentary on the DVD version because they makes it simpler to rip it and make an mp3 file of the commentary...

Does the Arrow DVD has a good image quality ? I want to buy it, but I want to be sure it's a crappy pan & scan video first ;)

Yes it's good (and widescreen ;)), but the DVD edition has less features than the Arrow Blu-ray: no commentary and no Jay Chattaway interview...

You're far better off with the Synapse (Blu+DVD combo, way more extras no both, region free).

So since I already have the Synapse version is it still worth to get the Arrow version for the extras? Sounds like it.

Well that just depends of the level of your insanity! :mrgreen:
The Dolph interview & the Zito commentary are different yet similar obviously. But the composer Jay Chattaway interview is totally exclusive.
