    This was my favorite film of 2002, and I am anxiously awaiting word on A/V quality.

    Any online reviews around?

    Brandon,

    I too am anxiously awaiting early reviews of this film and I also think this was the best movie from last year.

    I asked Ron Epstein how soon he thought he might have his review up on this one and he said Dreamworks usually don't send out screeners til last minute [​IMG]

    Later!

    The latest issue of Widescreen Review, which arrived in my mailbox yesterday, had a review of it, but I have know idea if it's available on their website yet or not.

    I got the DVD today. It’s the DTS version. So I get home and check the net and find out that a non-DTS version exists with more features! Yikes! The first time I make this mistake. I was so much paying attention not to get the full screen version that I forgot that the DTS version has less features. Now I have learned my lesson! My DVD doesn’t have the HBO documentary. But it has the

    -Deleted Scenes
    -Audio Commentary with Sam Mendes
    -Production Notes
    -Photo Gallery

    Wait - the DTS version doesn't have the HBO doc? Both dvdempire.com and dvdplanet.com says it does! ARGH!

    Oh well [​IMG]

    Looks like I'll be switching to the DD version on my pre-order.

    Thanks for the info. [​IMG]

    Now where are those reviews? [​IMG]

    Here is Widescreen Review's email response back to me as to why they have not posted their review of "Road to Perdition" on their website yet:

    Damn. I was hoping to read some R! reviews before I picked it up. I might just hold off till I can read some reviews then.

    Sucks that no reviews are allowed until release date, but I won't be waiting around for them before I go pick it up.

    Just a week and a half away - can't wait!

    DreamWorks is getting real bad with sending
    out early screener product.

    The idea, after all, is allow reviewers time to
    look over the material and post a review prior to
    the release date.

    If everyone else has the disc in their hands
    the same day reviewers get their copy, then what
    is the point of writing a review?

    As of yesterday, I am still being informed that
    DreamWorks doesn't have their copies in yet to
    ship out to us.

    Might have to skip this review altogether.

    What's sad is that I know of at least one retailer that has received some of their Road to Perdition dvds.

    ^ That's what I thought, but apperently that was bad info. It looks as though the HBO doc is NOT on the DTS disc.

    Anybody else think Dreamwork screwed the pooch on this release by not making it two discs? With a two disc set they could've included both DD and DTS tracks on the same disc, as well as a whole disc of extra features. This WAS a $100+ million grossing film, and I think a 2-disc release would've sold just as well if not better than all these 1-disc versions.

    The DTS version does have the Dolby Digital soundtrack, but as stated earlier does not have the HBO making of.
