I hadn't seen this one mentioned around here, so I thought I'd point it out in case anyone else was interested.

Here is the link.

Also, I saw that Once is available as well. Not sure if the blu ray will be any improvement on the DVD, but since ours was borrowed and never returned, I think I'll be picking that one up as well.

Once has been available for a number of years in the UK. Honestly, I don't think the movie will ever look that good. The UK Blu-ray looks like what Once is, a low-budget Indie movie.

Right, I certainly don't expect any improvement in this release. For whatever reason, though, it feels more right that if I have to purchase it again then I may as well buy this version.

Should be an improvement, upscaling DVD's is always a crap shoot.

Which was a prosumer camera intended for TV broadcast work (as in, shooting news footage), not for feature film work.
