Yes, it looks like Rambo 1 in Jan or Feb and Rambo 2 right behind it.

I actually pre-ordered these on HD DVD from France but cancelled, hoping the BD version is better quality than the mediocre HD DVD imports.

For "Rambo 1", First Blood, it proably wouldn't make much difference which disc you get. I bet you wouldn't be so wowed either way if the D-Theater tape is a good indicator. The tapes have been a good indicator so far too. It's just not an impressive looking tape. It just appears that the film really isn't all that well shot, IMO. Just don't expect anything near eye candy, I'd quess...???

In real life I am Dot Mongur champion of the International Pacman Federation. I don't play the game, I operate it.....no dot is safe from me....

I watched part of that on SD TV years ago. From the look of the print on that broadcast, VHS would suffice.

Since I have First Blood on DTHEATER I will defintely wait to get part 2 and 3. I am shocked to read he is doing a part 4. Well maybe not after he just did another Rocky...

For my latest Reviews and Stuff google -> Joe Rod Home Theater .Com

Were Rambo II and III announced at CES?

I looked at the future release list and did not see them listed.

Thanks!

That and Casino Royale are my two most anticipated new release titles for '07 thus far.

As Rachael says, Rambo 1 probably will not make Tier 1, but the D-VHS D-Theater version is much better than SD DVD.

I actually loved all three Rambo movies. Even 3 was great IMO.

Part 2 has to me my favorite though.

So, were 2 and 3 announced at CES or no?

The HDDVD of Rambo I has slightly better PQ than the DVHS version.

HD Rambo II and III have better PQ...Tier 2 in my opinion. I'd bet that the Blu Ray versions will be essentially the same in PQ.

42" in the dining room.
50" in the bedroom
80" in the living room

65" in the family room
106" in the family room


"There is another system"

Video Modes: SDTV-EDTV-XGA-HDTV-3D
All HD Modes: Blu Ray, HD DVD, DVHS

I had the imports on HD DVD.

IMO, quality was pretty good (part 3 looked great) but that pitch issue drove me crazy!

That is why I will get them on BD now and was hoping all would be released this year.

C'mon, even the third one?

I'd love the second one and the trailer for the new film looks good so I'll probably pick it up on disc too.
