    Very nice! That 5 disc set will be mine!

    Saw both films in theatrical release. Both excellent, "Letters" had the edge for me. Looking forward to the bonus documentaries disc as well. Adding the historical content will definitely round out this package for me.

    Also, they're both being released on HD-DVD/BRD the same day which is really cool for those that have made the plunge.

    I thought FoOF was decent, but didn't feel the urge to own a copy. Haven't seen Letters yet, but the extras make that 5-disc set very tempting (pending actual street prices).

    This is exactly what I was waiting for! But is it only me who feels that the fifth disc seems a little...light?

    I'd also like to commend Warner for releasing a 2 disc SE of Letters from the get-go and not doing the same shameless double-dip that Dreamworks/Paramount pulled with Flags of our Fathers. But I guess that's Warner for ya. Gotta love 'em.

    Oh yeah, 5 disc set for me. [​IMG]

    I am now glad I held off on buying Flags; I haven't watched either yet, so I'll be getting this immediately upon release [​IMG]

    That fifth disc seems a little light because the documentary has been out on DVD since Dreamworks released that bare bones version of Flags on DVD. It's not new at all...

    It's not new, but it's a very good documentary and a natural addition to the set.

    One question...

    Dreamworks initially released "Flags of our Fathers."

    Recently, I have been disappointed in WBs transfers of movies in standard-def DVD. Do we think "Flags" from WB will be the same transfer as the Dreamworks disc, or their own transfer?

    Oh, this is the way it should be released. YES!

    Did not buy FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS, but will now in this set. I found IWO JIMA to be the far better film.

    I knew those single-disc releases were crap. Hopefully I can return them! I want this really bad!!

    I knew that they were going to release the two movies together eventually.

    Q: Will Letters be released as a 1 disc edition at all? You know, CHEAPER?
