Default "Blow" coming Sept 23

I didn't see another thread for this, and searching didn't turn up anything, so excuse if this has been posted before.

Warner Home Video has announced a Blu-ray release of Blow which stars Johnny Depp, and Penelope Cruz. The disc will be available to own from the 23rd September, and should retail at around $28.99. Extras will include a commentary with director Ted Demme and George Jung, deleted scenes, character outtakes, a production diary, behind the scenes featurettes, a trivia subtitle track with direct access to additional features, a digital copy of the film, and the trailer. We've attached the artwork below:

What the shit.... where's the frickin' Lossless, Warner! I could give a crap about a digital copy or focus points or any other of that other crap.

It's the second half of 2008 - why are we still getting lossy Dolby on Blu-ray? LionsGate is out classing them w/ 7.1 DTS-HD MA and PCM - Lionsgate!

Seems like the first New Line release where Warner itself is handling the transfer. Now instead of a high bitrate VC-1 encode with lossless 7.1 DTS-HD MA audio on a BD-50 we get a low bitrate VC-1 encode with lossy 5.1 Dolby Digital sound more than likely crammed onto a single layer disc.

Your right my mistake. Though I will take high bitrate VC-1 encode over low bitrate VC-1 any day.

wow, warner has sink to a new low. christ, they're going to botch the lord of the rings trilogy unless peter jackson handles it personally. otherwise say no to LOTR in 7.1 DTS MA and a high bitrate encode. I really think we need an insider to speak to them about this crap.
