I would recommend that "A Perfect Getaway" 2009 on Blu-ray be added to the Video list. Video is absolutely phenomenal on BD, especially the establishing shots in the beginning.

And Pandorum be added to the Audio/Video category. And I've yet to watch a Harry Potter film in Blu-ray that hasn't impressed in both A/V. The uncompressed PCM soundtrack on these films are very engaging.

I didn't read through every page, so it may have already been mentioned.

Overall though, a lot of negative stuff about whether or not the menu and previews work at all. I would love to see Ralph take this on and give us the true story. Right now I am afraid to buy it.

I will be watching this one tonight. I was looking for Ralphs review on it also. I like to read Ralphs Pq and Aq review before I watch the movie.

Any chance of a review for this movie?
I watched this recently and found it to be a very compelling story and interesting film.
I'm not a huge fan of foreign films but this was one very good, IMO.
It doesn't have the glitz and glamor of the big Hollywood films but more than makes up for it in the story.
It's packed with plenty of suspense, thrills, and intrigue.
Would like to see your take on this and recommend this film.

I wasn't aware that it was released on blu-ray yet but if anyone hasn't seen it on the big screen, it is a "must see" which will have you on the edge of your seat!!!

It came out on blu-ray this Tuesday (July 6th) and by far was the BEST film I viewed for this week's new releases.
After viewing the"Girl with the Dragon Tatoo" I am now very excited to see the next installment which is "The Girl who Played with Fire."
So far I haven't seen a blu-ray release for this one yet but the trailers looked very promising.

Salute,

Now that Heat is on BR, have you had a chance on reviewing it? I picked it up but have not opened it yet. (among other BR disks) Wanted to know what you thought first.

Thanks in advance if you do.

Also,

Is it true that Swordfish does NOT have an HD audio track? I REALLY wanted to buy this on BR but when I read the back specs and saw NO HD AUDIO track, I was deeply . Is this just a typo or does the movie exist on BR without an HD audio track? If so, why would they do such a thing? I'm EXTREMELY bothered by this. This is one of my all time fav flicks.

Thanks in advance for reading and researching if you do.

Does anybody know of or heard of these and know if these will ever appear on BR?

These are some favs of mine as well. ESPECIALLY the soundtracks/musical scores for these films.

Thanks in advance for any input.

I saw "The Girl who Played with Fire" on Saturday night in the theater and it was a great sequel to "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". It had the same cast and I was on the edge of my seat throughout the movie. I would call it another must see when it is released on blu-ray!

I was going to see it but didn't get a chance.

For someone who hasn't seen "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and watched "The Girl who Played with Fire", would they be able to follow the story since this is also a sequel?

I wouldn't recommend it as there is too much in the story line from the second movie that is carried over from the first one.

Probably best to see "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" first.. it is up on Netflix streaming if you have an account ..
