    It sounds like they really loved it. I do not think that the four disker of Lord of the Ring even has a chance at Best DVD of the Year with reading this, but still should be good. I have a feeling that this DVD is going to be my top one, actually I absolutly know it will be.

    Glad you liked the review

    It really is the best SE of any movie to date

    I personally hope for LOTR to top it, simply because it's a great, great film. However that in no way takes away from the excellence of this set.

    Any questions, feel free to ask them in this thread

    I might be the only one who liked Pearl Harbor more than Lord of the Rings, but I still liked the action of Lord of the Rings as well. Pearl Harbor just hit a nerve with me I guess. But, I hope Lord of the Ring doesn't top Pearl Harbor, just because I am more interested in the actual even of Pearl Harbor more, and really have no intrest in Lord of the Rings anymore than buying the two-disker movie. I will still go see the sequel. I just am really excited about the Vista Series of Pearl Harbor. I hope for you, the Lord of the Rings 4-disker makes you drull as this set is for me.[​IMG]

    I'm just wondering what happened to the new cut. Only 1 1/2 minutes of new stuff? What about the nude shot of Kate Beckinsale???
    Oh well...........

    Wasn't Bay going to cut the ridiculous romance down to almost nothing in the Director's Cut and replace it with more action footage. Pity.

    I thought this new cut was going to be very different.

    I have a question. Is there any new scenes in the attack sequence covering more aspects of the battle? Like shots of the USS Nevada or the B-17's arriving?

    Also does the extra gore include any burn victims? One of the things that always seemed to ring false about the PG-13 cut was the lack of any burn victims since there were so many that day.

    Jeff,

    Very nice review.

    Our review copy is due to arrive today.

    I hope to be able to put something together
    that's nearly as good as what you have done.

    Could all the extras have been put onto one disc? Making it a 3 disc set.

    Brilliant review, Jeff. Is there a true intermission with music for the film now as hinted at in the early press release, or is the disc break the same as on the old 2 disc release?

    Jeff,
    Seconding that commercial question[​IMG]
    Also, in the full trailer, do they still use the internet music (as I expect) or do they use "Journey to the Line"? I ask only because the version I saw in the theater is still one of the best trailers I have ever seen, thanks to that music.
    Thanks for the great review[​IMG]
    Take care,
    Chuck
