    It's another combo disc.


    From The Man Room

    Interesting that only the director's cut will be in HD, which I'm sure will make more than a few people upset. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I loved what I saw in theaters, so I hope the extended version is more of the same, so I'll wait and see. I was going to buy this one anyway, but the TrueHD track is certainly a nice feature as well.

    Well, at least you get different versions for combo disc.

    I probably would have picked this title up if it had been HD DVD only. It can sit on the rack now that they are making it a combo disc. I have no intention of paying 40 bucks so that I can have a version of the movie that I will never watch. They should have made this disc with both versions in high definition only, since they are going to be releasing a DVD only release anyway.

    I guess this is one of those titles I will pass on. Don't even think I would bother renting it.

    I liked it in the theaters, but I wasnt overly wild about it. Looking forward to reviewing the directors cut!

    I'm not a fan of combos, nor have I even seen this film yet. That said I'll definitely be getting this HD DVD if for no other reason than because my wife loves Colin Farrell. Gotta keep her happy about the new HD toys too.

    Is seamless branching possible on HD-DVD?
