    I was also happily surprised to see Sin City on the self on Tuesday. I had not heard a thing about it being released.

    I picked it up along with Kill Bill.

    Got to love those romantic comedies! [​IMG]

    so is it confirmed that it was only released in Canada and not the US? If so, anyone know why? Are they getting a better release?

    Hmm....Import Sin City on Blu-ray........any other time I'd jump on this but with a pile of unwatched BD's and more coming every week I think I'll wait it out until early next year and see if a fully loaded US release gets announced.

    If not then I'll pick this up. No rush.

    Jim, thats kind of how i feel. I need to catch up on what i have already. Really, i wanted to get From Dusk til Dawn worse, so i can ditch the old non anamorphic DVD. I would keep the bonus DVD of course, great doc!

    It will come out soon enough.

    I haven't watched the whole movie yet but did go through a bunch of scenes and felt it looked great.

    Watching on the JVC RS2 at 106" via PS3.

    Don't mean to be *too* pedantic, but: this is the same cut as the (original release) DVD I already had. Expected. The BD AR is 1.78:1, the DVD is 1.85:1. Unexpected.

    I cannot tell the diff on my CRT-based display (overscan). Most of you have LCD/plasma (no inherent overscan). Can you tell the diff? Should I be on my high horse about non-theatrical AR? Even though I can't tell *now*. But I know about it...

    The U.S. BD release is specced as 1.78:1 too. Somehow, I just expect the U.S. release to be "better" since it's delayed for some reason. Didn't see anything wrong with this one myself...

    IMO I think one is splitting hairs between the diff of 1.78:1 and 1.85:1. MY RS2 has no overscan and on the 106" sized image we're talking maybe 3-4 inches total I'd guess (I could do the math but am too lazy to) and for me, that is pretty small and I doubt anything of real value is at the very edges of the 1.85:1 image that would get cut off being zoomed in a bit and make the movie inferior. I guess though it could be that this is opened up so more is showing at the top/bottom with this AR. I'm not that knowledgeable with aspect ratios to know the ins and outs of it all.

    I respect the opinion of those who may have issue with it but to me I really do not care and I would have never known had you not pointed it out. It's not like a 2.35:1 AR being hacked up to show on hd network tv at 1.78:1 or anything where you can tell something is way off.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. It didn't bother me so much that I didn't buy it... With my display (and I can't play BD on my PCs) there's no easy way I can tell if the packaging is wrong for the AR even, just like it is for the audio format.

    Hmm, I am pretty sure it is indeed 1.78:1 as I don't recall seeing the thin bars and my RS2 has no overscan. I could be wrong though but when I fully watch it I'll probably remember this and check for confirmation.[​IMG]
