Is there a review on HTF. anyway it seems the rental version only has a standard DD Audio track.

Lionsgate probably figured that since it's one of the top grossing films of all time they didn't need to bother sending out review copies because people would buy it anyway. Aside from a wonderful English 7.1 DTS-HD track, I heartily recommend the retail Blu-Ray for the documentary on the special features disc. I was worried they'd take the tack they took with the Harry Potter movies where the extras are really shallow affairs that condescend to the target age group. Instead, what we've got here is a great two-hour in depth look at the production from Suzanne Collins' first draft of the screenplay all of the way through to the premiere. Truly one of the best special features I've seen on a disc in years, one that left me with the thought process behind the film and not just the shiny stuff.

Quote:No, review copies were available. They were simply being handled by a different PR firm than the one that usually sends out Lionsgate stuff, and for some reason our site was left off the list. The mistake has been rectified, and there should be a review here soon by MattCR.
