    Just seen the review of the PEARL HARBOR of WIDESCREEN REVIEW,the remarks really makes me drool...
    But the feature is split into two discs,thats the worst had happened to be.The first 120mins in disc one,the next 60mins in disc two.Why can't they just sacrifice the extras,french 5.1 track,and probably animated menus just to save more space for the dual digi-surround english track???Squeezing the full feature into one single disc?With a included french subtitle?

    They probably wanted the best video possible and the most audio features, so you get the film over two discs.
    I think it's good that they did this. Hell, at least it's not three or four breaks like with LD.
    Hoping that New Line will spread the Director's Cut of Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring over two discs similarly since it will be much longer than Pearl Harbor. And a DTS or DTS-ES track to die for...

    Dan, are you privy to LOTR info that I've missed? The director's cut of The Fellowship of the Ring is to be "much longer" than the three-hour Pearl Harbor? Do tell.

    I believe that the Director's Cut DVD will be split across two discs, and will include an entre-acte/intermission. This doesn't bother me at all.

    Oh boy! Making fun of the wannabe-French! Even though I'm not from Quebec can I join in too? [​IMG]
    That's great the last 60min are on the 2nd disc. That way I don't have to bother with the first 2 hours [​IMG]

    Hey Jeff why do want to skip the PH attack and only watch the Dolittle Raid? [​IMG]
    By the way did anyone else notice that 2 of the 3 Historical documentaries that were supposed to be on the disc have been cut according widescreen review? I don't know about anyone else but I think this sucks. [​IMG]

    Is the non-director's cut (2 disk version) split across 2 disks as well like the 3 disk director's cut?

    The regular theatrical cut of the film is already split into two discs...this refers to the 60th ANNIVERSARY GIFT SET...i believe the regular non-gift set release is a "BREAKER" as well...looking at DISNEY's "great effort" to include french dubbed 5.1(!!!) tracks to all their releases.
    Not to be offensive to fellow canadian members,the best way to see and enjoy a movie(to me) is to view it in its original language,not in any other dubbed form.
    Although i do not understand french,i am still enjoying LA FEMME NIKITA and TAXI 2 in french...with english and chinese subtitles.

    If there is an intermission structured in, I don't mind the break.
