unforgiven_blu_ray_clint_eastwood_western_movieClint Eastwood deserves all of the accolades he’s received for the movie Unforgiven, including a Best Picture Oscar and Golden Globe, but a brand new DVD edition might be milking it a tad (especially since two Blu-rays have already been released, with the last coming out in 2010).

All three have the same extra material, documentaries and commentary.

Having said that, the anniversary book edition, released on February 21, does contain 54 pages of photos and text. If one is looking to upgrade to a Blu-ray version, this might be the way to go.

But in a perfect world, what’s to stop Mr. Eastwood from offering to let us see some old footage or outtake material. More to the point, what’s to prevent him from doing his own commentary and maybe bring in Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman on the job. That would make my day.
