I love this movie. But I also find it hard to re-watch. Hopefully the HD version will make your eyes stick to the screen longer.

This is the best looking HD-DVD I've seen yet. It's not quite "flawless" as suggested by HD Digest's review but it's close. In the narrated, stille shots in the film's opening minute I saw a couple of lines wiggle. After that, I was just stunned by the video quality and could not find a bloody think to whine about. In the scene where Jeff Bridges has spent all night at the hospital....now it's morning and light is pouring through a window....the camera moves up close to Bridges, you can see bits of dust in the air. I can't recall ever seeing someting so small as dust in the air in a home video. That shot just amazed me.
Rachael, the big disc cat is in real life Dot Mongur, Champion of the International Pacman Federation. You better be ready to rumble if you play Jr. Pacman with me. This is full contact Pacman and I don't just play the game, I operate it!

How would the PQ on this disc compare to that of Apollo 13 ?

I wouldn't know how to state how much better it is but it's better looking. Buy a copy if you at all like the movie.

Apollo 13 has a lot of film grain showing, which is of course intentional but is easily mistaken for poor pq, hence it's not the best demo of HD-DVD's capabilities. Seabiscuit is the opposite, almost totally grain free and thus a great demo disc. It's the best looking of all the HD-DVDs I've owned or rented, though Training Day comes very close.

I prefer not to push the subwoofers until they're properly run in.

Don't forget Chronicles of Riddick! Some people didn't really like it substance wise, but visually, it was stunning. I found how HD made the CG look so realistic to be the best eye-candy from COR.
