Love the movie, would normally say day one purchase, but it's Universal. Will it be a crap transfer, will it be priced beyond my margin for a catalog release?

I've had this movie on a UK import for a long time. It was pretty cheap (6.49 with vat)

Hopefully they'll do an ok job with it since it's for the 100th Anniversary of Universal.

It might be a re-use of the HD DVD transfer. http://hddvd.highdefdigest.com/720/s...thebandit.html

Just noticed on the front cover of the HD DVD version, it states "The look and sound of perfect."

There is a law in the UK of printing bullshit for marketing purposes. I suppose that because "perfect" can never be defined, anyone can market something as perfect and get away with it.

Yea, the HD DVD manufacturer could just sent you a disk that displays and announces the word "perfect" on the screen and they'd be covered.
