    GREAT! I'll probably only buy THFRO, and not the other 2. Unless they put it only availible in a boxset only. I would still buy it anyways. Hope it's true.[​IMG]

    excellent news. I never bought any of the current discs since they were bare-bones discs (I'm a sucker for extras).

    it appears Paramount are finally getting into the DVD game properly and releasing decent special editions. as of right now they must surely be the laggards in DVD.

    I'll definitely pick up HFRO. I've been waiting for it to be revisited. Not crazy about the other two, though.

    absolutely great news Bill. I would only pick up the Hunt though and hopefully Tom Clancy would do an audio commentary like he did for the last film

    I have been holding off getting the whole Trilogy due the constant rumors that the would be out in anamorphic SE. Luckily I only own Hunt For Red October which I got for really cheap a few years ago from CDNow. I will rebuy them all wheteher they are individual releases or in the form of a boxset.

    DTS, bring on the DTS!!

    It would be really, really cool if Paramount could give all the archival sound stems to Mi Casa and have them remix them/remaster them to 24 bit DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 mixes!!

    They do a superb job with DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 mixes as anyone who has Bones, Blade 2, and The Fellowship of the Ring Director's Cut knows!

    I would like Clancy commentaries similar to TSOAF.

    [Sigh] I finally broke down two months ago and purchased the bare bones letterbox edition, as I really enjoy this movie and was not hopefull of there ever being an SE.

    Although the transfer shows its age (probably an old laserdisc transfer), I think the audio is quite impressive. In terms of dynamic range, subtle use of the .1 channel for the subs' screws, and exceptional ambient environments I think this soundtrack is top quality. Good use of the surrounds as well, though the effects tend to be a bit too directional for my taste. Hopefully the life of this audio track will not be lost in any future version.

    All in all very good news.

    Good news. I'll probably get HFRO if it's done right. Like the movie. Borrowed the current disc off a co-worker awhile ago and vowed not to buy it until a proper version from a hi-def transfer came out since it's a pretty lousy transfer.

    I wouldn't hold out hope for a Clancy commentary since he has stated numerous times how much he dislikes all adaptations of his work prior to Sum of All Fears.

    Pretty pscyhed here since I love Hunt for Red October. In fact I think it's McTiernan's best film so far (please let him do a commentary). Mixed on Patriot Games and Clear and Present but if the price is right I'd buy them. Agree that the sound mix on the current Hunt DVD is pretty terrific, especially for a film from the pre-digital sound era.
