With the economy in the crapper like it is, I have no intention of replacing my HD-DVD either. Plays just fine, the BD will not be significantly better, if at all. I've bought WAY too many box sets on LD, DVD, HD-DVD & BD for full price close to release date, only to see them in a bargain bin for a 1/4 the price two months later. I have no mercy for the studios, they made their bed, they can sleep in it. Bargain bins are all I buy from now, no more replacing old formats with new unless significantly better, with the exception of Criterion, they at least have a hope of holding some sort of value. Keep on telling us how cheap your HD-DVD's were, I for one am glad to hear there are other smart consumers out there.

That's all I'm doing. Some people are just bitter.

Great. We all understand you paid $3 for a movie on a dead format. Congrats! Good for you.

The problem we have with your hd-dvd posts is that you come off as some person who thinks he's smarter than everyone. You don't know if it's going to be a worse transfer or a better transfer or the same transfer. LIke someone said it's annoying, we know you love HDDVDs.
A lot of us importers will say something similar when a movie that's been available overseas for a while finally gets a stateside release. "I got the ______ import. Not planning to double dip" is a common refrain. You guys gonna complain about this, too?

Bravo to Cheez for getting while the getting was good.

Also, I loved this flick in theatres. Can't wait to see it again in HD!

I completely agree here. In fact, in response to another post, I like hearing about the imports. As a dual-format owner, and someone who has imported a few titles, I like hearing about getting a discount here and there. I think I have tapped what I want out of the HD-DVD pool, but I honestly did not know this title was ever released - don't know how I missed it.

Also, as a dual-format owner, I like seeing in reviews how a movie on BD compares to its HD-DVD counterpart. If there is a better transfer or a significant amount of new material that I am interesting, I'll double dip. If the BD, as is usually the case, is simply recycling the HD-DVD transfer, what is the point of double-dipping? My HD-DVD player works fine (although its way slower than my PS3, boo-hoo). So please, let us know if a movie is also available on HD-DVD or as an import.

Just started watching this and so far its dvd quality at best....a shame really.

Edit: The transfer was ok....colors not as vivid as I would have liked, not eye popping as one would want with such a colorful movie. In some parts the video was not that great while in others it was spot on. Sound was excellent tho I found.

3.5/5
