I like Nicolas Cage, but in this movie he just annoys the heck out of me to no end. That "I am the greatest!" scene is so obnoxious, I want to someone to punch him in the mouth.

So, Kino basically repackaged the same video release? Would this have benefited from a BD-50 disc instead or is the master that bad? Adding lossless audio only makes it a tighter fit.

Even on a BD-25 they only used something like 19gigs. The master is just that bad and I'm guessing they just weren't allowed to go back to the well for the video. It's wildly inconsistant from one shot to the next.

Michael, you misspelled Nicolas Cage's name five times in this review.

My bad - fixed! - Must've gotten him confused with Nicholas Nickleby...
