For those interested Forbidden Kingdom looks exceptional in high definition (The 7.1 channel DTS-HD MA sound is almost as good).

Happy shopping !


Cheers,

Looking forward in watching forbidden kingdom mine should arrive this monday via FEDEX.

Only Iron Man for me.
Don't know if I can justify the Godfather collection to myself, given that I already have the set on DVD.

It only just left most theaters in the US, about 1 week ago. I know it's been out for some time overseas, so I have no idea how this effects a US home release.

I will say, I was a bit disappointed with it. I'm glad that it wasn't the typical, simple hollywood-type epic (Braveheart), but then I found myself wishing it was. You know, when you're dealing with one of the greatest badass conquerors in the history of the world, you'd expect a lot of epic battles.

The cinematography was great, pacing unique, a decent amount of depth and alone time with the young Ghengis....but I guess I became a bit antsy for him to start laying waste and amassing hordes. Maybe it's my upbringing? It's nice that you don't get what you expect, and it certainly holds true to being a portrayal of Ghengis before he became Ghengis.

anyhoo, if it's a blind buy for anyone, and you're expecting Braveheart, you'll be disappointed. Though assuming they handle the transfer properly, there should be some great visuals throughout.

They'll give me some sort of rebate for my ~8 year-old "remastered" DVD set?

Its been delayed until October I believe. Remember, this is supposed to be the first of a trilogy. If I thought it was like Braveheart, I wouldn't even bother.

Any news, rumours about the Indiana Jones original Trilogy. Eagerly waiting for these for some time now. Not sure about the reasons for the delay.
