I've heard enough. The EE is a must-buy for me (eventually), but I'm not going to rush out and buy this version until I've had a chance to rent it and see it on my own setup first. My EE DVDs will...

Dark City was a must-buy on my short list, but the issues brought up here made me pause. Now the HDD review has put it back on my list.

It's a shame, though, that such an important film did not...

You sure this isn't a kinescope picture of Ralph Kramden from the Honeymooners show in the 1950's?

This is terrible news for the film that was #1 on my most-wanted list. But I'm going to wait to read the full reviews of this disc before I make my final buying decision.

Of course, I was equally...

This sounds very disappointing for a title I had really been looking forward to. However, I'll wait to read final reviews by Kris Deering and HDD before making up my mind.

I certainly can't wait to see how they did with Patton. But the most intriguing title on the list, IMO, is Bridge on the River Kwai. It is one of David Lean's masterpieces, and a movie well ahead of...

Kingdom of Heaven is a good choice for DTS-MA. Check out the cavalry charges, and of course the siege of Jerusalem.

Netflix wait times for BD's have definitely gotten a lot better since the end of the format war.

The one thing Yuma has going for it is awesome audio. If you want a title that really shows off a good audio system, Yuma is a good choice.

Just saw this last night for the first time. I think it has the most impressive audio quality on any BD I've heard yet. Extremely active use of the surrounds.
