PIcked the Australian release of this one up today. Picture quality is stunning - and really shows up a few of the special effects for how quaint and dodgy they are
- but I did find the packaging very misleading when it came to extras (this will be the same packaging as the UK release, I'm presuming, just with the obnoxious Australian rating graphic printed on it).
The details panel on the back cover clearly states, under both "Feature" and "Bonus", "1080p High Definition". When it comes to the bonus features, they presumably thought that they could get away with that because of the "Movie Showcase" non-feature (similar to the one on the Apocalypto BD) which just contains three scenes from the movie to show off your system with. Underneath that single option is the heading "Original DVD Features", with everything below that line at 480p (and for some reason, windowboxed when I play them on the PS3).
The we have the bonus features list on the back cover. It reads:
Now at this point, having seen all this and gone "brilliant, it's got new 1080p extras and a commentary!" I promptly bought the disc.
The "audio commentary", though, is only on the 8.5 minute "Scene Developments" featurette; there is no commentary on the movie itself.
So, great transfer and all, but I can't help feeling I got conned just a little bit
