1.0 out of 5 stars The Outsiders - Special Edition [Blu-ray], 19 Mar 2012
This review is from: Outsiders - Special Edition [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I hate this version of the film the new scenes are ok

but the new score makes this the worst new version of a film i have ever seen

What was he thinking

The rumble was one of my top 10 film screens ever with that dramatic music made it so tense it could have been a scene from a war film

now it has music in the background that would be more at home in a episode of the pink panther I had to turn it of before I put my foot through the tv this was one of the first films I loved and now i hate it

don't get me wrong the music is ok if you like that kind of thing but not here

if you love the first verson don't buy this its like some one has chucked a tin of paint over the mona lisa

i personally agree with your comment on the shear madness of coppola's new music score on this special edition of the OUTSIDERS.
if your like me and you think the outsiders is the greatest movie ever made, be warned !! ( do not watch this new version ).
i got really excited in the first few minutes as the film started with new material....but suddenly BAMMM !! and elvis and the shadows appeared over the top of more or less every scene.....disgusting.....its not worth losing your youth and fondness of this classic by watching
this dire remake.
i advise you keep to the dark atmospheric beauty of the original, keep this very close to your heart and definately give this splodge a big no go.i was also gutted as i only had it on region 1 format so i couldnt watch it after my dvd broke down. eventually as you can imagine i saw it released on region 2 format along with a special edition and i was ecstatic.... what a mistake, i was horrified at the end result ....all i can say is try if you think u need to see it by all meens feel free, but in my opinion MR COPPOLA what was you thinking ???? and you should be best grateful for all your general followers like me when we tell you when you have made a major mistake.... just think that thank god you didnt try and release this version in the theatres as i think you would have had a major big suprise.....and a huge wake up call ?? 2/10 just for keeping " stay gold " in the forefront by stevie wonder, but again ruined by the overall music soundtrack that should never have been....if you like hearing elvis ballads and 60's guitar riffs over movies, then watch " peggy sue got married" or "cry baby " (which are too great films that deserve such a music score ).....THE OUTSIDERS however does not belong in that category ??
