    I really liked The Kingdom. A nice, unexpected surprise, and a riveting little action/thriller which was also surprisingly low-key in its politcs. The HD-DVD looked and sounded pretty darn good, so I'll be picking up the Blu-ray.

    Never did get either 'The Kingdom' or 'Jarhead' on DVD - however, where are the extras for 'Jarhead' that were on the 2 disc set? For that, I may just pick up only 'The Kingdom'. I will pass on the other one if Universal is going to skimp on the extras.

    I liked 'The Kingdom' because it's politics weren't so preachy like 'Lions Of The Lambs' etc. It's good to have an American movie once in a while that does not try to preach with every single frame.
