"This edition includes the two movies on two separate discs and "Evita" is still the exact same disc everyone has been overstocked with and can buy 50 copies for $10 each at Virgin. I bought this edition just assuming "Evita" would finally be formatted and watchable on a 16 by 9 tv and I don't know if I'm entitled to a refund or not so right now I'm out $18 and this distributor needs to stop being so lazy repackaging DVDs printed 10 years ago and not even watchable on a modern tv especially considering the quality of the film. So "The Wiz," "Titanic" and soon "Mrs. Doubtfire" are finally in anamorphic but this movie's still dragging behind with cinemascope-within-4:3 output that looks terrible on wide panels yet the movie is apparently good enough that it was one of the first to be released on DVD 10 years ago. I don't care about bonus features just somebody please release this movie formatted. Having said all this, it's a magnificent film. I have not seen "Frida.""
