Default Anyone Getting 'Rocky Balboa'?

It says Sony is using a 50GB BD. With all the extra space they plan to put all the extras on the DVD version in 1080p on the Blu-Ray release.

Sound good, no?

The question is...why wouldn't you buy this movie on BD? I was so scared to see this movie and feared in the worst way that it would suck so bad but I was DEAD WRONG...this was one of the best of 2006 and probably second to Rocky 1. Now I am tortured because I have to buy this on SD DVD and BD so I have both copies to watch wherever I am.

I missed this in theatres as well... hesitating at buying it blind, I'll probably just put it to #1 on my zip list (zip.ca) and rent it fairly soon after its been released.

I have heard lots of good things about it, though, I'm just not usually someone who buys movies blind. "Kingdom of Heaven" was the exception, but my history with Ridley Scott trumps my history with Stallone.

This movie was freakin awesome. I can't wait for it, it'll be a day one purchase for me. This was my third fav movie from 06 right behind Departed and Casino Royale. Great stuff.

Great to hear so many positive comments! It was actually a somewhat believable movie (nothing like 3 & 4 where gets the sh*t knocked out of him and still comes back). He takes some good hits but the movie is about so much more than boxing. It beautifully ties in all key points from Rocky 1 and shows what happens to a person mentally and physically as they age. You can basically embark on the whole Rocky Anthology by popping in Rocky 1 (on BD of course) and then immediately watch Rocky Balboa (of course on BD again)! And don't forget "The Descent" too. That was a movie that snuck up on me with no cast memebers that I ever heard of that totally took me by surprise. That is my sleeper hit pick of 2006.
