Nice...I was hoping the PQ and AQ would deliver.:)

'endure the decades...'

You gotta love the hyperbole. The movie was release less than 2 decades ago.

I saw this when it first came out and thought it was boring as hell.

I am much more interested in a detailed comparison with the HD DVD. I had it and sold it as I knew that it would show up on BD soon. And by soon I mean that the UPS man should be here in about 2 hours with it. :)

I am a big fan of Clancy's earlier books (the last three or so are crap) and always felt that Baldwin was a little too slick to be Jack Ryan. Harrison Ford was perfect, except that in Patriot Games he was about 15 or 20 years older than Jack Ryan was supposed to be. I have never seen sum of all fears, but will likely rent the Blu to see how badly Ben Affleck muffs it.

Anyway, Sean Connery alone is worth the price of admission on this one.

Watched it last night. I'd give 3.5 for both PQ and AQ which isn't spectacular obviously. Nothing wrong with the picture as it didn't distract me or take away from me experiencing this movie again as I'm a fan.

More than likely it beats the SD DVD but I haven't done a comparison. I'd say go for it if you like this movie but don't expect lots of eye or ear candy. Rental is always the best recommendation if you are on the fence.

"itís widely considered one of the best submarine flicks of all time"

thats completly wrong the best sub classic is not hunt for red october even this is very good. But the best sub clasic is Das Boat by the great director Wolfgang peters before Hollywood did destroy his talent.

I totally and wholeheartedly agree -- 'Das Boot' is the best sub movie on the block.

Sorry if I wasn't clear, but that's why I wrote 'The Hunt for Red October' is "one of the best" and not the best.

Thanks as always for posting!

BTW, it's 'Das Boot' (not Boat) and the director is 'Wolfgang Petersen' (not Peters). Though I'm sure it's one of your fav's. ;)

Both are great flics IMHO. I enjoy both immensely. The pacing is completely different between the two so I think there's room for both. The only thing that they have in common is that they both revolve around subs.
