I just picked this up today and thought I'd post a few brief thoughts. Lions Gate has such an inconsistent track record in terms of quality that I was worried that they might screw this up. Overall, I'm very happy. It's AVC encoded (a first for Lions Gate?) with DTS-HD audio. Playback of the core DTS track is a significant improvement over the DVD's Dolby Digital track and the pitch problem found on the HD-DVD isn't there. The picture quality is very good and I saw no evidence of compression artifacts. I'm sure someone more qualified will post a more thorough review, but this is the best I've ever seen this film look.
