Question X-MEN Days of Future Past

Hi Lee, Ralph

Any word yet on X-MEN Days of Future Past? If I'm not mistaken, I think it is due to release this coming Tuesday, Oct. 14th.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Best,

It may be less expensive to buy Blu Rays, especially if you buy them on sale and a door buster sales. Here's an explanation:chipbrown.me/2013/05/16/is-physical-product-cheaper-than-netflix/

The quality is also better (less compression) and you also get a lot more extras and it's way cheaper than actually going to the movie theater.

20th Century Fox has changed their policy with respect to forwarding Blu-ray screeners for review. They have now opened a "Digital Screening Room" online for press to watch new releases in advance. The titles are in watermarked HD and of course there is no option for surround sound playback, lossless or otherwise. This will make it impossible for writers to report on the quality of both the image and sound.

Any Blu-ray screeners that are sent out will go only to a limited few online reviewers probably on a case by case basis. I have something arriving today from 20th Century Fox but if I had to guess it's not X-Men but probably a DreamWorks title that streets today (Fox distributes DreamWorks so their screeners come from them also). I will advise.

Hey Ralph are you getting Maleficent ? The reason why I ask is because the Australian copy says DTS HD MA but its actually only DTS. Curious to read if US version is DTS HD MA

Greetings,

I have requested it Frank and expect it to arrive in the next week. To my knowledge it contains a 7.1 DTS-HD MA soundtrack..
