I remember reading that GI Joe was remastered for near field home audio and should be amazing. I can't wait to see if it is reviewed?

Do you know if you will be doing GI Joe?

For some reason Sony dropped the ball and didn't send me a copy of District 9.

I have inquired about it and we'll see if it shows this week.

District 9 was a strange strange movie, the visuals were awesome of the "prawns" and the weapons effects gruesome in detail. Loading the BD disc was a struggle and when the screen shifted to the upper left corner and reduced in sized I was about ready to return it for a refund but it eventually loaded.

Its a renter fer sure, the only reason to buy it would be the promise of a sequel which is possibly what they were trying to achieve in the end.

This must be reviewed. If I had to some it up in a few one word it would be un expected. The visuals and details are amazing. I have a panny bd60 and there waS a delay but no more than two minutes. The only disk. i have problems with are disk with the BD live. All others load with no problem. The transfer was very good. I am just wondering why some disk have horrible detail¿ thanks

District 9 loaded fine on my PS3. A very strange movie that I'm not sure I liked or not. I'd say more about the plot and characters, but don't want to spoil it for anyone.

I see that Amazon is selling a Blu-Ray of 1996's Emma (the one with Gwyneth Paltrow). I've the original DVD and the quality is pretty poor. I'm wondering if anyone has seen the Blu-Ray and can comment on the PQ.

X2 I thought it was a excellent movie with great audio and video . The LFE was Strong and made its presence known It was a different type of movie that some might not like and I myself was unsure the first few minutes in but it pulled me in more as the movie went on until I didnt want to look away in fear I would miss something and there should be a Sequel im sure Really glad I picked up this Blu-ray . I cant wait for Ralph to check this one out and hear is personal and professional op on this one .
