    But, this is a new, official press release, so I posted it.

    Having no interest in the series, I wasn't going to go through 23 pages to see if everything in this release was already covered. Besides, this being an official release, it may confirm or deny information in that thread.

    So did they just randomly pick one and remix it 5.1 or was it like that in theaters?

    This doesn't sound nearly as bad as people are making it sound in the other thread. I'm biased in that I haven't bought these before, but based on the extra feature disc descriptions, there is a good chance that alot of the deleted gore that people have been crying out for well be represented in those features.

    I'm sold on it, the price is right, the transfers should be fine, the extras are decent.
