I'm a fan of both versions. Excellent casting in both. Peck and Mitchum vs Nolte and DeNiro, all likeable actors. I think Scorsese goes a little OTT with his direction though which detracts a bit from the tension and atmosphere whereas the original remains a really tight and tense affair. Also I believe Peck and Mitchum really were opposite personalities in real life as well as in the movie, and this shows. And finally, the moody atmospheric B&W photography suits the film down to the ground. So the original wins for me.

Just got the same email. Thankfully, I also have the steelbook on order which I seem to remember being at a fairly decent price

people are slagging Amazon off (as evident on Twitter) but they're still my favourite online shop and mistakes happen.

I received the same e-mail which, to be honest, I was expecting. I also have the Steelbook preordered and have the check disc to watch at some point before watching it for review.

Agreed.

They'd be making a very poor business decision to sell at that price, and it was pretty obvious at the time that it was a pricing error.

They'd lose thousands of pounds (if not more) if they honoured all those pre-orders, the ones which bumped Silent Running to the top of the chart and, as it was obvious it was a misprice, cancelling the orders was the only sensible decision. Anyone expecting Amazon to honour 100% of orders is almost delusional!

Damn it! Just got my email from Amazon regarding Silent Running. I knew what it was even before reading it.
