Ordered this movie today. I really enjoyed both the book and the movie and am excited to watch it on Blu.

I just got done watching it for the first time. It was a great movie and the pq was very good. There was some grain but all the scenes where you saw the ocean and areas outside of the sub looked great. Theres also some great fine detail whenever they do close shots of Connery's face.

Got to see RED OCTOBER last night and I must say it's the best transfer of all of them. Yes, there are some scenes in the film and there might be a slight bit of DNR but there is not the digital sharpening i've noticed on the other films. Certainly this is more film-like than the others in the series. Don't get me wrong, it's not an "eye-candy" film, but it accurately represents the film as it looks!

What did suprise me was the audio! I just didn't think a film made before digital surround sound would be this good! What immediately struck me about the TRUEHD track is the score and particularily the chorus. For the first time I really noticed the contribution of Basil Poledarius score which had such excellent detail. Also suprising me was the ambience of the sub sounds, the ambience never got lost in the soundfield.
