Hopefully Universal pulls through and gives us TrueHD. I loved this movie, definitely picking it up.

They haven't been very accurate...

They mentioned that 'The Kingdom' will have Dolby TrueHD 5.1 before Universal announced the title (Source: http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/sh..._December/1149 & http://hddvd.highdefdigest.com/1232/kingdom2007.html)

But it turns out when The Kingdom HD DVD was finally announced by Universal with complete details, NO TrueHD 5.1 track was found in the disc spec. (Source: http://hddvdformat.blogspot.com/2007...on-hd-dvd.html). In fact, I don't think Universal promised a TrueHD track before The Kingdom was announced on HD DVD...

This movie is just down right excellent, definitely in my top 5 favorites of the year, but like Bourne, I am boycotting it until we get a non-combo release.

The format wars are over Primal, you lose - Megatron from Beast Machines (partially)

So long HD-DVD, I will miss you no matter how much I complained about Combo Discs.

Looks like you will never see it. It was a good movie. I say the best in the series. I don't mind combos one bit. Never had an issue with any of them. Have 20 or so and all play perfectly.

Universal just announced a 3-disc edition of the movie for standard def dvd. I really hope Universal doesn't screw us on this one, similar to Knocked Up with it's lack of the 2-disc dvd extras (which were hilarious). Also, with Ray, they left extras from the 3-disc set off of the hd-dvd release. We are now looking at a 3-hour movie, with PiP commentary and possibly a trueHD track. Somehow I don't see that, commentaries, and 2 discs worth of special features making the port.

Hey Universal...I know you can't magically make your HD discs grow by 66% (or can you?), so how about a 2-disc HD-DVD release for once?

Ok HD-DVD has been out for a year. Time for the studios drop that stupid "The Look and Sound of Perfect" silver thing and give us the complete cover art.

definitely not the best movie of the year. Good flick, but not great. Probably still worth owning.
