Interested in seeing the director's cut, to see whether it's an improvement over the theatrical cut. Although slightly concerned that it runs almost two hours - the cinema version was quite long enough.

I doubt this movie would benefit from any added footage. I personally found it a decent unassuming potboiler with a couple of really good sequences (mostly when Talbot is in the asylum). Only Del Toro appeared to take things a little too seriously.

They could've at least put more of the extras on Disc 1. I can understand not issuing a 2 Disc DVD, when collectors are moving to Blu-ray (I presume that's the theory) but I bet a fair portion of those extras would've easily fitted on Disc 1.

Can't say I was a fan of this film. It isn't a patch on the original.
