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?

Greetings,

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.

rent it!!

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.

Had the same issue with sluggish loading. Worst one since DRAG ME TO HELL

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 .
