Is this going to be yet another movie we buy just to support the format. My God! Take a look at the reviews:

My goodness, I must not enjoy X movie because X believes I shouldn't.

Saw the HD-DVD on the shelf at my Best Buy as well, but not a single copy of The Assassination of Jesse James on any format.

Peter Bracke gave the PQ 4.5 stars on HighDefDigest: http://hddvd.highdefdigest.com/1235/invasion.html

I've read some posts in this thread that said it was soft which led me to believe PQ wasn't that great. Perhaps I misunderstood. I haven't watched it on HD DVD yet, but do people agree with the 4.5 for PQ?

The HD DVD of The Invasion was put out by Best Buy at the same time its Blu Ray counterpart was released. The Same thing goes for all of the other so called 3 week delay HD DVD Movies released by Warner.

Its a bunch of Blu S***!

All of the commercials have both hi def movies advertised as well.

I couldn't find Brave One or Assassination of Jesse James at Best Buy. I found Brave One at Fry's, though. Have you seen Jesse James out there?

Jesse James is backordered across the board apparently. QC? Warner mix-up?

I didn't read any of this thread until watching the movie tonight. I said the exact same digital airbrushing thing. It was odd, since during the dinner scene, for example, everything below her chin-line has texture and detail, but everything above is soft and smooth. All the other actors in the scene had lots of detail in their faces.

So, do you suppose this is something written into her contract, or an artistic decision by the filmmakers?

There were a few other soft-focus scenes, but overall I though the movie looked pretty good.

As far as the movie goes, I didn't think it was anywhere near as bad as the word-of-mouth was for it. Not anywhere near as good as the original, it was still a pretty good story. There were some nice moment were marred by jarring cuts and illogical plot points, but it wasn't terrible. My wife thought it was just stupid, though.

It also seemed like Kidman had a problem deciding on an accent. When she first said "Hello," she sounded completely Australian, but for the most part, she was trying to maintain an American accent. I wouldn't have expected that from her.
