    An international HD-DVD version is likely as this was a joint Miramax/Paramount Vantage production.

    I'm very interested in seeing this movie, and I hope it paves the way for more Coen Brothers movies in HD.

    This is definitely one title that I'm looking forward to purchasing on BD. [​IMG]

    This one merits a blind-buy for me. A Coen Brothers noir-ish crime film (I loved Blood Simple), overwhelming positive word of mouth and the critical praise.

    My number one film of the year, and a rare title that is a must-buy on release date for me. Roger Deakins' cinematography should look spectacular on Blu-Ray!

    Gee, I hope so. Otherwise, it's films like this that make me want to go purple.

    Very cool. The release date is actually sooner than I expected. One of the best films I have seen in a long time. I can't wait to see it again!

    My sentiments exactly. I just saw this at the start of December and it was instantly one of my top films of 2007. I came out initially thinking that this was a movie I thought I should have liked more than I did. I played back so many scenes over and over in my head that this film climbed up into my top 5.

    Yuck. [​IMG]

    Maybe it'll get changed when it wins a bunch of Oscars, but I doubt it.

    And why do they have the wrong heads above the names? I know they can't change the name order because of contract agreements, so why not photoshop Jones on the left and Brolin on the right to match?

    Oh, it'll get changed alright... they'll manage to squeeze in "Winner of xxx Academy Awards, including xxxxxx" in big bold letters.

    Since the Oscars are on February 24, they'll probably have to settle for a sticker touting any wins rather than actually changing the art (or they'll have nothing at all about Oscar wins).

    Surely they wouldn't put out the disc with the wrong names/pictures...though that's a horrible cover any way you look at it.

    Great flick. I had the (ahem) fortune of watching it on DVD a few weeks back, but am looking forward to it in HD.
