    ...not to mention 3 Uncompressed PCM 5.1 tracks (English, Russian and Italian), 3 Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks (English, French and Italian) as well as a Descriptive English track for the vision impared. It's amazing what you can fit on a 50 GB disc! I'm sure some might think this is a total waste of space... of course, you wouldn't feel that way if you were Russian or Italian. [​IMG]

    No Klingon? [​IMG]

    You haven't experienced Closer until you've heard it in the original Klingon! No sale! [​IMG]

    I was going to try to think of something witty to say in Klingon, but I only speak Romulan. [​IMG]

    I could not agree more about Clive Owen's work in this film. He was incredible and unforgettable. You got his pain, rage, smug sense of victory, everything. The other three are also terrific, but he's in another galaxy (since we're talking Klingon and Romulan).

    With all that, I've got to wonder why there's no Russian, German, or Japanese.

    In Entertainment Weekly right around the Oscars nominations were about to be announced, Lisa Schwarzbaum was touting Owen's performance with this exceptional quote about his performance: "...a man driven to grab what he wants out of life and to punish those who thwart him." It couldn't have been better said.

    Hrm... it's a mystery that only the talents of Scooby and Shaggy can solve.

    Matt & Pat...

    Gald to hear you both agree about Clive. He elevates just about everything he's in to a higher level. In Closer, though, his performance is just pure genius.
