    I really like Memento, though I haven’t watched it in a while.

    I was really expecting that the re-release would have a special feature to watch it in actual chronological order, and not the order in which the film presented events. (spoiler guarded for those who haven’t seen it yet). I’d pay for that…

      re: fez’s spoilered request

      [Spoiler]

      according to one of the comments in the Amazon.com customer reviews

      “If you keep searching on disc two, you’ll be able to watch the movie in chronological order, which is my reason for buying this special edition. (If they don’t edit this out as a spoiler, just select the Clock form the main menu, choose answer “c” five times on the questions, then put the pictures of the woman fixing the flat tire in the order of 3,4,1,2.)”

      • Fez says:

        Ah, nice! I may have to pick this release up then. I’ve got my eye on a Blu-Ray player and although I do not plan on re-buying many films, this may be an exception for that feature alone.

      • Mr. Vapor says:

        Looks like I butchered the spoiler tags. Sorry.
