I like to check out deals over at Amazon.ca, and in doing so, i found that Mimic is coming to Blu in Canada in Aug.

The price after i ordered came out to $27 Can and some change. I figure it will work out to be under $25 US.
I dont usually import. But Mimic has not seen a re-release in the US, and if i recall, the old disc is non anamorpic widescreen, and a 10 year old transfer.
I dont think i can go wrong with importing this, and would be shocked to see Disney release it anytime soon, in the US.

This was always one of my favorite DD surround tracks. Would be interested to hear how the lossless track sounds.

I've always liked this movie.  It is a strange, well made, monster-flick.  I'll be interested in reviews of this disc.

I doubt it. That's probably controlled by TWC, and if it hasn't seen the light of day on DVD in North America, don't look to Alliance in Canada to release it; remember, these are the guys who put out a 1080i 1.78:1 version of Seven.
