Go get these DVDs, get these DVDs.

From dvdfile.com:

After nearly three years of anticipation, Warner Home Video has finally announced an August 17th street date for The Scorsese Collection, a six-disc collection of five of the American auteur's greatest works. In addition to a reissue of the previously-released Mean Streets special edition, the set will include newly remastered versions of After Hours, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, Who's That Knocking At My Door? and perhaps the standout of the bunch, a two-disc GoodFellas. Each will also include a Dolby Digital 5.1 surround remix and supplements produced by the team at Automat Pictures. Goodies include audio commentary by Scorsese on each film and their respective theatrical trailers, plus additional extras: GoodFellas includes a second "Cop and Crook" commentary with the real-life Henry Hill and attorney Edward McDonald, and the "Getting Made," "The Workaday Gangster," "The Goodfellas Legacy" and "Paper is Cheaper Than Film" featurettes; Who's Knocking at My Door? and Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore boast a new making-of featurette apiece; and After Hours features deleted scenes and the "Filming For Your Life" featurette. Retail will be $59.95 for the box set, $26.95 for GoodFellas on its own, and $19.95 a pop for the rest if you buy 'em separately.
