I just received the "movie only" version from Amazon ... original theatrical version. But if Ralph's timings are correct, there's only an extra 7 minutes, not 17 minutes for the extended version. Is that correct?

I've enjoyed all of snyder's movies, especially watchman, but not this one. Again, the cinematography and visuals are amazing, but i found the story to be horrible. I made the mistake of watching it with my wife and have now lost movie choice privilages for the next 2 weeks. This was a blind buy before i even checked ralph's review (never smart!). However, i agree with Ralph's review but, for me, the story just didn't work. The action sequences are great and i would have loved to see a straight ahead over the top movie crafted around those instead of the "deep inner story" trying to be told. Still, the BD is a great AV presentation.
That is my impression as well so I borrowed a mates copy and the soundstage is totally different. Very open and loud and bass where it should be, so I believe I have a faulty disc. I mean I'm not a bass head (like some hard core ones here) and I too get sick of it if it's all through a 2hr+ movie, but a movie like this you expect something like WOTW or Tron-Legacy and it isn't in that league imo.
I will be contacting Amazon and requesting a replacement. I played back both copies at the same volume.
