Why is this not "HIGHLY RECOMMENDED?" Posted Image

I'll definately be picking this up. Unlike a bunch of people around here, I thoroughly enjoyed this film! Posted Image

It's ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED as said in the last sentence! I'm not a fan of putting the degree of my recommendation on the title of the post. Thats just me Posted Image

Enjoy it when it comes out!

I never really believed, or really ever hoped, for a Panic Room SE. But its great that we got one! Im definitely picking this one up. BTW, awesome review. How does it look in terms of packaging? Is there an insert? Is the cover really as bland as it looks?

Yeah, Michael - can you give us some incite on how this DVD is packaged? Thanks for the great review. I'm researching prices, and will be placing my (pre) order very soon.

Hi Guys! Wow! I got so caught up in the content of the disc I forgot to mention the packaging because it is different in this case. David, the cover is as 'bland' as it looks, but heck it never bothered me. At least it doesn't say "Chambre De Panique" under the title! The three discs are in a fold out spread and are tucked into the outer cardboard box like most TV series box sets are set up. All three discs are in the center of the three-fold design - each disc is on a plastic "page" that is flipped from the center. Pictures of the characters are located on the other foldout pages. I hope you can visualise what I'm talking about. I wish I could insert a photo or something. Mike

Good review. My main concern was with the transfer and whether it had been improved. Your review is the second I have read that gives a slight edge to the Superbit. Since I am not one for extras, my Superbit will do me fine.

Hi there, First of all I would like to say hello to everybody, I'm a new member of the forum and I'm really happy about it. Second, well I'm from Spain,so excuse if sometimes my english is not perfect or full of mistakes, I'll try to improve it for the future. Ok, here is a question about Panic Room's SE, I would like to know if all the extras and commentaries have spanish subtitles or just some of them.I have the suspicion that may be all of them are subtitled, just like Black Hawk Down SE. That's all by now, Thank you Ovidi D.

Having watched this movie so many times on DVD and in HD, this package, although sounding great, comes a little too late. I have too many other movie to pick up now. Why did they wait so long?

I didn't check out ALL the extras' subtitles, but as far as I can tell, they should have Spanish subtitles...

Just received my copy this morning from a US etailer. Mine did not have any printing of the chapter stops on the flaps around the 3 plastic DVD holders - just pictures of the characters from the movies.

I didn't see any mention; are there "PLAY ALL" buttons for the bajillions of featurettes?
