Question Last of the Mohicans

Well, this is one of my favorite movies and it had been over 8 years since I last watched it. Today I decided to rewatch it, put in the DVD (manufactured in 2000 I think) and was horrified. Now, maybe I'm an High Def snob now but this movie looks horrible! The night-time scenes are cringe inducing and there's a blurry effect during the action sequences. Add in the fact that there are NO extras and this is a horrible, horrible DVD. I just wanted to know if there was any word whether FOX will give this gem the update to BlueRay it deserves? With all the forest scenes and night-time battles this movie could look sweeeeeet. Anyone agree/disagree?

Huge fan of this movie!! The end always gets, even get a little teary eyed.

Would love to see it given the justice it deserves. It will be Blu and hopefully a winner.

Now that you mentioned it, I think I'll give it a ride and see what it looks like.

This would be a winner in Blu-ray. Not only for the picture but the sound too. I love the sound track.

Remember the football commercial shown last year, Nike's Leave Nothing ad, it used a song from the Last of the Mohicans sound track. One of my favorite sport commercials.

Check it.

I've been waiting for this to be announced. I hope it happens soon. A lot of the early DVDs are absolutely horrible. I just re-watched 'The Power of One' which came out in '99 and the PQ was awful. The funny thing about it is that on the back of the case it boasts and interactive menu, but it's just "Play Movie", and "Languages"...they're awful.

Incredible movie. This is one I would want to have also in teh best audio format out there. The soundtrack really gets to me in good ways along with the story...like Star Wars does.

This is a definite buy when released so long as FOX re-does their pricing. I say right about now a $30 list would be fair.

i'd buy this title no matter how much Fox charged.

i got reminded of this movie tonight because the Cleveland Cavaliers used the main theme as their intro music tonight. This movie needs to get a release date.
