It's an HD-DVD port. Don't get your hopes up.

I've always said this is one of those movies that I prefer the "distant" feel of hazier PQ. I would like lossless audio, but other than that, I'd be interested to pick it up.

Blu-ray = 775

Hey, anything to replace my non-anamorphic dvd is cool. Definitely would like something done with the transfer like Fight Club and Se7en on BD.

Already out in Germany, France, supposedly Spain and Australia, and even Russia I think. Dante's Peak too, plus Asia later this month. Both HD DVD ports.

Seems like the US will be just about the last country to get these...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a pleasant Se7en-like surprise remaster announcement for the Game coming up. It's the last of the Fincher movies to get five star treatment on Blu-ray, and it's probably my favorite of his.

Movies look their best when they look like movies. More Patton-esque remasters!

Yup. Same here although I haven't seen Panic Room updated for BD yet. Alien3 has yet to show up as well. Hehehe. Seriously though...the Game NEEDS an update.

The last? Alien 3 isn't getting that, though that was Fincher's decision. Also, Panic Room isn't on BD.

But yeah. Fight Club, Se7en, Zodiac and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button all have great presentations on BD.

Is there evidence of ANY documentary footage or other content that might surface in the future? If I remember correctly, the HD was bare.

Of course. There was a Criterion laserdisc.

Same here. As for a new transfer.. we'll have to wait and see, I guess.

The HD DVD looks terrible. Great movie but I have no misplaced hopes of a remastered picture.

Thankfully all that stuff - bar the test film - is on the UK SE DVD. Makes a nice little 2-discer with my HD DVD.

To be clear, Criterion didn't have anything to do with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Criterion's logo was really just added on there for marketing purposes. The reason that BD is great is simply because of Fincher and his team working on it themselves - just as they did for Zodiac, Fight Club and now Se7en.

To be fair the LD of Se7en was the basis for all the SE versions of it since

I'm well aware Finch is the force behind the work.
I assumed Criterion adds a degree of shepherding to the quality. I can always learn something new.

And, unfortunately, it's the best and remains unreleased.

Is that the HD DVD?

The Blu-ray has a higher bitrate, for those that "watch" that kind of thing.

I have read on another forum that the Criterion release has better audio than the UK release by WB....would that not have been down to some good work by Criterion?
