    LOTM is also a great DVD/film, although not on the epic scale and grandeur of Ben Hur. The DTS sound and anamorphic video will make for an impressive viewing experience.

    I don't own the disc yet, but the movie is awesome!
    It's a very powerful story, and at times, it can be very touching.
    The music is awesome too.

    I'm gonna get flamed...
    I thought this movie was just OK at best. It's a very nice looking film, but I had problems with certain aspects of it. One big one was the fact that I would really like to see someone load a Kentucky Long Rifle at a dead run. These rifles are nearly as long as the people shooting them are tall, and yet they are shooting, sprinting, reloading (powder, wadding, bullet. No modern shells here, folks) while sprinting, turning, shooting, hitting their mark each and every time, then repeating the whole process again. Daniel Day Lewis even pulls a John Woo firing two of these big rifles at the same time! Evidently in this part of the American frontier they figured out how to never have mis-fires, either. Handy.
    For what it's worth, I don't begrudge anyone enjoying a movie I didn't, so I truly do hope you like it.
    OK. I'm done for now. Let me have it...
    P.S.- Toward the end of the film, as Day-Lewis is running after his brother toward the cliff, you see him pass through what looks like a gap in some rocks. Watch his hands as he runs through. One of them hits a rock, and it's a fake rock! It bounces back like it's cloth strung over a frame or something.

    I enjoyed the movie but not the first few times I saw it.
    By the way the thing with the rock caught my attention the first time I saw it and it is impossible not to see now. I have never heard anyone else mention this and when I pointed it out to my wife she accused me of being to critical. I think she just liked looking at Hawkeye. [​IMG]

    I agree with Scott from philly, I from philly to kid. You get people like Chauncey_G who just go through the movie and rip it apart for reasons about how the movie is unrealistic. last of the mohicans is f*cking aweosme.

    I own the DTS version of the disc and it is one of my favorites. I think it has the best music of any movie I have seen in a while. The DTS version also has a few small extra scenes added into it.
