    I'll be first in line on July 30th to pick the 2pk up. I have been waiting since November of '98 for a good version of Speed. Nearly 4 years later, it's finally happening. Now if only the 5 Star of True Lies would hurry up and be released I could die a happy man. [​IMG]

    Damn, one of my favorite action films of all-time finally done right on DVD! I'll be in heaven on July 30th. [​IMG] What's the word on True Lies 5-Star? Still delayed?

    Last I heard True Lies was still delayed. I heard rumors it might come out later this year but I wasn't able to confirm them. Anyone have any more updated info? True Lies 5-Star would hold a place of honor in my DVD collection (...Jamie Lee doing a strip tease in anamorphic widescreen...)

    Only two weeks to go for this bad boy. Have been drooling waiting for this ever since Charlie L.(sorry, cant remember how to spell the name[​IMG]) spilled the beans last year he had finished work on it. The reviews seem to show that Mr. L's high standards are still intact and FOX keeps their crown for greatest studio for DVDs. The next two weeks are going to be torture waiting for this!
    Now if only Fox and Van Ling would hurry up and give us the Five Star True Lies.
    I also want a special edition or at least anamorphic/DTS rerelease of Broken Arrow, one of my personal favorites.

    I received the R2UK a couple of weeks ago and saw the movie and immediately after I listened to the commentary with the writer and the producer (names escape me right now).
    I have to say it was VERY Funny, one the absolutely funniest commentarys out there!!!

    It's going to be interesting to track the sales figures for this DVD (if those figures are released for it). It's a pretty popular movie, released in a steller package. I would think it will do quite well, though probably not as well as some other DVDs that have been heavily advertised.

    I know they'll have a bunch of sales from all of us (including me!).

    I am looking forward to Speed for sound and video done right, plus some extras. Bring it on.

    Yesterday, I received my copy of "Speed" and I just want to echo Ron's Review by saying this dvd has an outstanding video transfer and the DTS soundtrack sounded great. Listening to Sandra Bullock's archive interview was interesting due to it being filmed eight years ago, before she became a star and you could tell that she has a great sense of humor.

    Well, it looks like Dick "I'll never buy the same movie twice" White is about to violate principle once again. Ron, I don't know whether to thank you or put a curse on you [​IMG] .

    So, the Speed 5 star DVD IS in DTS? Clarify this on me please. The guy at the other video store I never been to, who is PRO OAR and PRO DTS, said he's gonna wait until SPEED comes out in DTS. If the 5 star IS in DTS, I'll let him know.
