Casino is one of my top five movies ever. I'm very anxious to own it on BD. The movie's killer soundtrack should be a real treat in DTS-HD MA.

I love this film and will be picking it up for sure. The only question is whether or not the Gangster pack will be worth it (seeing as how it's more expensive on Amazon than the three individually).

"Excuse me sir, is this your pen?"

Yea, I just read the HD DVD review so I am definitely excited as it looks like we are in for some great PQ.

The box set seems steep at $89.98. Most retailers AMAZON, DVD Pacific etc will be selling each for around $20.00. It would be cheaper to buy them each separately than the set.

Picture in Picture, My Scenes. These are two features that are not on my version. May have to double dip this one, along with Transformers, Mummy 1 and 2. My collection is starting to get smaller. Oh well...knew this was going to happen.

And they also have it as part of a bundle for all you people that want to get the exact same three movies for 10 cents more.

Wait, why would a bundle cost more? Aren't you supposed to save money on those things?
