Man, I cannot believe they are putting out a two disc set on the BD side. I do not see anything in the extras that would not fit onto a single BD 50. What the hell is the use of a 50G capacity disc if you are not going to use the total capacity. It's bizarre.

Thank God it's not a TotalHD disc. I won't buy those. What I find troubling is that they still will have about 20 GB of unused space since I'd put money down that it's a 16 bit LPCM track. Why can't Warner Brothers get their act together and support 24 bit Dolby TrueHD tracks? They just need to add the compatible software decoder to their Blu-Ray authoring software. It takes up less space than a 16 bit LPCM track anyway, and on a 50 GB disc they could go 24/96 with the extra space!

only thing i dont like is...
Warner has set a $38.95 list price for the Blu-ray version, and $39.95 for the HD DVD/DVD combo.

the br price is too high and the hd dvd is a stinkin' combo

I was looking for a review of this title here and didn't see one in my search.

I kinda did a bad thing and bought this today without looking here first for a review. I should have saved the money for bills, but I had my copy of Goodfellas and The Aviator stolen (with all the rest of my home entertainment equipment about a year and a half ago) and The Departed was in a "Scorsese Collection" at Best Barf-er- Best Buy today. It was roughly the cost of buy two get one free, so I thought what the heck.


Anyway, now that I've made this post entirely too long, has anyone any reviews on the A/V on The Departed? The set is still wrapped up so I can return it if need be.


Oh, I saw the movie when it hit the theaters, and though I think it's really good, it's not up there with some of his other films, IMHO.

I'd say open and enjoy with confidence. I think it is up there with his best, but that just my 2 cents...
