Default A Room with a View HD DVD reviews?

Hello everyone. New member here. I just got my first HD DVD player and am very excited to be entering the world of hi-def!

Anyone seen the new HD DVD of A Room with a View? I have yet to find a review. This looks like it could be a good sleeper title, considering BBC's positive track record. It's great to see titles like this getting the HD treatment.

It was supposed to ship out this week, but Amazon still has my copy on hold even though Amazon shipped the other titles I ordered for this week.

No reviews that I have seen. I bought it yesterday and poped it on to see how it looked. It looks terrific and even sounded pretty good.

My Wal-Mart had it in last night, when I went to check on new HDs that were in.

unfortunately, some hd dvds are not being promoted by the studios. "evening" (universal) also fell through the cracks.

My copy arrived a few days ago - this title was released much later than originally planned. It still peeves me that the BBC keep launching their titles in the States BEFORE the country that pays the license fees that enable them to put this stuff out (and even when we do get something announced here first - like Bleak House - they then go and cancel it the week before release)

I'd say it's OK. Certainly better than the standard DVD and the best it's ever looked (well duh!) but once I started looking I noticed there's quite a bit of print damage in places.

I finally got it myself a week ago. Have been waiting to finish it before posting my mini-review. Here's a hint though--much better looking than I had been led to believe.
