Default 'Flags of Our Fathers' -- pre-release buzz

Paramount has finally announced 'Flags of Our Fathers':

http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/sh...D_This_May/505

Looks like it should be a great release, akin to 'World Trade Center.'

BTW, how does everyone feel about two-disc sets? I don't mind them. Sure, it is nice to have all the extras and the movie on the same disc, but I'm still not going to complain...

Again, WB will cross promote and release Letters From Iwo Jima on the same day to complete Eastwood's Iwo Jima Saga...

Very happy that this will be a two-disc set....

Thats a rather strange response. Letters From Iwo Jima is without a doubt a far superior movie to Flags, and I find it unfortunate that people are put off by the idea of it focusing on the Japanese.

Not that it's likely to change your opinion, but Letters, while primarily about Japanese soldiers, also devotes a lot of screen time to American soldiers, and several scenes are completely in English. It is more or less a film about every soldier: the good, the bad, the noble, and the horrific. It's a great companion piece to Flags, and I hope you at least give it a rent.

I also hope it gets a proper blu-ray and hd treatment to properly go with this sure-to-be amazing Flags release.

Cuze,

Absolutely correct in your assessment of what both films are really about...

Do you know if WB will be releasing a BD/HD DVD version of "Letters" on the same day as "Flags" or just SD DVD?
