"Overall, I was very happy with this transfer. I saw 'Click' in the theater showing a standard film print -- if it was exhibited digitally anywhere, unfortunately I missed it -- and I remember it boasted quite vivid colors and a very bright, sharp and clean image. However, the film's overall visual aesthetic was also rather clinical and TV movie-esque, so it has a somewhat flat look at times. This 1.85:1, 1080p/MPEG-2 transfer delivers a similar presentation. As there is no "print" to speak of, the source master is predictably pristine. Blacks are absolutely rock solid, and contrast nice and smooth across the entire grayscale. Whites are not overpumped, and unlike some cheaper video formats (such as MiniDV and the like) the darker scenes generally don't lose detail in the shadows. "

"I've been quite impressed with the PCM soundtracks on most of the studio's discs, and this new one on 'Click' is no exception.
"

"But there is no doubt about this Blu-ray release -- the format's first BD-50 dual-layer disc packs a fine punch. The transfer is very strong as is the soundtrack, and there is a ton of extras presented in full high-definition video. If this is an indication of what the Blu-ray format can consistently and routinely deliver, the format war is just getting started. "

I'm going to pick this up, but I'm just confused. Not a month ago making BD50 discs was supposedly a problem and then *POOF* it arrives, AND works on current players. If they knew this was going to work, why all the secrecy around it?

well maybe they were not that sure if they are able to produce enough BD50 media.........

but if before the end of year there will be at around 10 BD-50 movies, I think they have production under control........

The big question is: how do they use the BD50 space? Isn't this MPEG2 again?
And what soundtracks does it have besides PCM?
