I received this from Amazon earlier this week. I'll probably watch it this evening since I have no interest in tonight's SNF game. Love the film, hopefully Universal's done a great job with the HD transfer.

Well...

So far this disc (which just arrived) doesn't meet the spec's released earlier by Universal....

1.) Not a Combo Disc.
2.) No Dolby TrueHD
3.) and it has printed an 1.85 ratio not the proper 2.35 ratio.

Putting the disc in tonight.... Certainly hope that #2 and #3 are just printing errors.
