Does anyone else have this HD DVD? I picked it up during the Wal Mart sale and I would have to say that out of all of the HD DVDs that I own (which includes the first gen Full Metal Jacket) this is the most disappointing. The transfer is hardly high def looking and the sound is weak. I checked the old review from this site and both audio and video got four stars which really surprised me. Anyone else think this is a weak disk?

Picked my copy of Casino up at Circuit City yesterday and was quite impressed with the presentation that I saw.

This was actually the first title I watched in HD and was blown away by it. The gleam off of the slot machines and cars, the costume detail, all impressed me.

Interesting. I guess I was expecting more. Maybe the problem is that I watched The Shining just before it. Now that is a good transfer!

Are you sure you bought the HD DVD, and not the DVD? Casino looks fantastic.
