Default 'Vacancy' - High-Def Digest review

Peter's review of 'Vacancy' is up. While he found the film itself somewhat middling, he says the video and audio on this Blu-ray release are both first-rate, and there are even a couple of notable goodies in the fairly slim supplements package.

Full review here:

Do you actually own a BD player? Do you Buy BD's with the intent of owning a BD player in the future? Just curious.I think this could be a whole sub-forum; Do you already own HD-DVD but plan on going neutral? I think that the majority of posters would fall under this category.

Probably blind buy this one. Never saw it in theaters but wanted to. Besides...seeing Kate in 1080p is NEVER a bad thing.

This is a SONY title and so it should run just fine on a European machine. Pretty much all of the Sony discs are region free.

Just got Starship Troopers on Blu Ray by the way. It came out here (UK) yesterday. The image quality is very nice. Fine detail is very good compared with the standard DVD. You can see al, of the stiching on the uniforms of the troopers etc etc. Though I would say that it isn't as big a difference over the standard def version as say The Patriot was.

Looking forward to getting Vacancy. Missed it in theatres...

No that's the problem ...
Not all Sony Titles are Region Free... The old catalog is always region free
but some news titles are region coded (Premonition for example... )

Great news for Starship Troopers, I'll go order mine now
