Default 'Starship Troopers' - High-Def Digest Review

Josh has reviewed 'Starship Troopers.' He's a fan and says the film has aged surprisingly well. This Blu-ray sports excellent picture, good sound, and a great selection of old and new supplements. Highly recommended.

Default Audio should get 3 stars

If the TrueHD track is having sync issues, I would give it a 3 star rating, even if it does sound good.

I've never watched this film, but because of this review, I'll Netflix it and see what I think.

Uh oh, I don't like that sync comment, I might cancel my pre-order now cause I have a feeling if it's noticeable, there is going ot be a recall/replacement program setup and I just don't want ot deal with that.

I just bought the UK version for $18 shipped sealed just in case.

The audio is not that far out of sync. It's infintessimally off. For most of the movie, it's not noticeable, but every once in a while it just doesn't seem right. Then you forget about it for a long stretch until something doesn't seem right again for a few seconds. Then you forget about it again.

I wouldn't cancel a purchase over this.

Ok, I was reading that it was consistently off throughout the movie. Hell I got the UK version cheaper than the US. I'll have to watch both see which one I like better.

Not sure why, but Amazon doesn't appear to be selling this as a stand-alone. And I'm so not interested in the "sequels."
