    I just received this disc...do these Lion's Gate editions come with a booklet? If so, I didn't receive one. Thanks.

    I assume they don't; I didn't get one either.

    I believe that Lion's Gate does not include inserts in their packaging...my Monster's Ball: SS, Frailty and Rules of Attraction all had nothing...

    How does the new Cube DVD look?

    Just finished watching this for the first time.

    I really liked this movie from begining to end.
    The DVD sported a great 16x9 transfer.

    next up for me is to tackel Cube 2

    Has anyone here seen Cube 2 yet? Almost got it today and then I remembered it was direct-to-video. But if anyone here says it's good I'll give it a shot.

    Lions Gate will probably never include an insert. Sometimes, they might include a little packet featuring Lions Gate titles (as I got with Dead-Alive and Sol Goode), but that's about it other than including the disc inside the packaging.

    Caught Hypercube Cube 2 on sci fi last week.
    Rent first. You've been warned.
    Remember the difference between Iron Monkey and Iron Monkey 2? Okay how 'bout the downhill slide from Beverly Hills Cop 2 to 3, or maybe Robocop 2 to 3. Or Universal Soldier to Universal Soldier: The Return.
    Best to you, toss the three or four bucks for the rental first. You'll be glad you did.

    Thanks, had a feeling it might be bad. Might just watch it on sci-fi sometime.

    Hypercube: I didn't mind too much wasting two hours watching this on Scifi.

    I WOULD mind dropping dollars to buy this on DVD.

    Look for Scifi to rerun it...

    Well, I watched my Cube 2 DVD last night, and I enjoyed it. True, it's not up to the first, but it's hardly Highlander 2. The hypercube concept was interesting, it was only let down by a couple of very weak performances. I don't regret buying the DVD.

    I watched Cube 2
    and while it's not great, it still is interesting.

    It seemed like Cube didn't have much of a meaning
    but Cube 2 tried to make more of a point/meaning

    John,

    I don't think they did know they could get the necklace. They knew Alex Trask had gone into the Hypercube with it. They'd obviously sent other agents in to get it. The question is, did they put those agents in that particular hypercube, or previous ones (in which case was Alex Trask able to survive the collapse each time, perhaps with the help of the necklace item?)

    As for the code, remember the dead guy they found? Probably one of the original designers who got thrown in after his job was done. He clearly had time to work through his formulae and work out the time the hypercube would collapse. He could only have worked that out if he knew the time the cube had been created.

    The lawyer and the geek no doubt died from an unseen trap. Probably one that forced them to age extrememly rapidly.

    And Cube^3 is certainly possible - the first two are pretty much self-contained and both are open-ended. Provided they can think of another cool mathematical puzzle, and some more deadly traps.

    It would be cool to see a Cube 3.
    Do they really have to stay in 'cube' form?
    Couldn't they do a Labyrinth type puzzle?

    Also, I wasn't really satisifed with Cube 2's mathmatical puzzle, Like I was with the original cube's puzzle

    What's the deal with this DVD is it out already? I went to BB and CC and a couple of other places and nobody had it. Only the original version. What is/was the release date?

    Matthew,
    But that last point of yours is irrelevant because you only found out that it's a lose-lose scenario right at the end. The agent didn't know she was going to die (take a look at the deleted scene). In addition, if an evil government agency put these people in the cube, they're bound to kill them if they manage to escape. My memory's fuzzy on the first film, but were the trapped people supposed to be connected to the cube project? If not then I suspect they'd let anyone who solved it go - after a memory wipe (or alternatively they could recruit them).

    In my previous post I was refering to the new Cube:Signature Series DVD. Are you saying this HAS been released? If so how is it no stores seem to have it. CC didn't even know anything about it.
