As good as that is, I frankly don't like the movie enough to buy it a fourth time.

Sounds good. Might double dip.

I'll definitely rebuy for the DTS-HD MA track. I'm really glad they digitally remastered the picture. I also wonder if they will stick with VC-1 or go to AVC video encoding.
I wonder what price it will be?
It also will be interesting to see the ticket offer for the new Mummy movie.Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful)

I'll get this on a sale.
Already own the HD DVD but I'll buy it again at a cheap price - especially with the remastered picture/DTS and 1.1 PiP track.Well, I don't want Fop, goddammit. I'm a Dapper Dan man.

The DVD version is probably as far as I'll go."Drainage! Drainage, Eli, you boy. Drained dry. I'm so sorry. Here, if you have a milkshake, and I have a milkshake, and I have a straw. There it is, that's a straw, you see? You watching?. And my straw reaches acroooooooss the room, and starts to drink your milkshake... I... drink... your... milkshake!"

This is a damned good sign. Here's hoping that Universal does the right thing and remasters a few of their other questionable titles - along with throwing DTS-HD MA audio. I will re-buy several of my HD DVD titles if they do.

I would like to hear what King Kong sounds like in DTS HD MA.

I loved the Mummy flix (minus The Scorpion King) and am eagerly awaiting both the new movie, and the Blu release of the old ones.
