    If true, those are some nice catalog titles from Paramount. I'm especially lucky, as I never did get around to buying Top Gun or the Jack Ryan films on DVD.

    Probably get Face/Off, but unless Paramount starts adding some uncompressed soundtracks I'll pass on all the others.

    All but Disturbia for me. Not a bad selection at all.

    Hmm - if the price is right on the Jack Ryan set, I might bite. Will definitely get Face/Off. Disturbia was good fun, but it might just get Netflixxed.

    Now, Paramount....how bout some lossless audio on these puppies?

    There is a lot of buzz around that Top Gun will be their first lossless uncompressed title. Apparently some Paramount Insider at DVD Talk confirmed this, although I can't seem to find the thread where he said this. Reportedly TrueHD for HD-DVD and PCM for BD.

    If anyone can find the link of this confirmation, please post it here.

    Good titles. Face/Off and Top Gun are certain. Hunt for Red October is also likely [​IMG]

    Those are good catalog titles.

    Not really a big Top Gun fan but I'll pick up the previously reported Face/Off and the Jack Ryan set. Though I won't be happy if I get stuck with The Sum of All Fears.

    I removed the Jack Ryan films from my DVD changer nearly a year ago because I knew they would hit fairly soon, amazing news indeed

    Top Gun...why do I feel the need for a new sub or some tactile transducers?

    Will this madness never end?

    Please don't announce Crimson Tide any time soon!

    The Blu-ray will bring back fond college memories of my roommate and I blasting the first Top Gun DVD and my sub knocking closed other people's windows in the dorm (later it would turn out I actually had it set wrong, with only the ultra-low bass set really high -- Robbie the Robot kicked ass over those steel grates in Lost in Space too -- no wonder). Subsequently, I was forced by the RA to send my subwoofer home. I nearly cried and gave it a hug before I boxed it up.

    Great news! I just hope that they will offer Hunt for Red October seperatly as I have no interest in the other Ryan films.

    I will pick up Top Gun for sure and, if they come with seperate Jack Ryan movies, will add October as well. Crossing fingers for pcm on Top Gun.

    I really hope the Top Gun transfer is better than what I watched on HDNet Movies last night. It was one of the worst looking hi-def movies I've watched in a long time(although at least they showed it in OAR). I have no doubt the audio will be amazing, but I'm really anxious to see if they clean up the PQ on this title.

    Oh, and I can't wait for Face/Off. [​IMG]

    My question for Top Gun is this: will Paramount be smart enough to use the brand new 6.1 discrete mix they created for the last DVD and put it on HD as 6.1 PCM (Blu-ray) and 6.1 TrueHD (HD-DVD)? You know, like Fox did for X-Men 3 (6.1 DTS MA)?

    Will Paramount do a "Disney" and release 24 bit master quality audio too, or will they pull a "WB" and just do 16 bit?

    Pretty sure Top Gun is Super 35 (necessary for the flight photography), so even if the video is top notch expect a lot of negative revews from the "I hate grain" and "where's my 3D pop" crowd.

    You'll have to really know your reviewer or see it with your own eyes. I would think the grain structure of the film would benefit from extra bandwidth vs. that used for broadcast HD though.
