I seem to have got my R1 copy freakishly early (and no, I'm not telling you the supplier in line with the v. sensible editorial policy). The disc is a decent package. The specs have been widely advertised for some time now. On disc 1 you get the movie, plus commentary and a 'follow the white rabbit' (actually 'follow the MIB logo') feature, that directs you to folks involved in the film making talking about how characters were devised, etc. [Warning - do not use this feature until you've seen the movie, as there are a lot of spoilers]. Picture quality is a good clear print; not demonstration quality but unlikely in the main to cause any anguish. Having said that, I found a bit of edge enhancement in places and at one point (the scene in the lift with the worms towards the end of the movie) there's a bizarre red moire pattern in the ceiling light. However, this could be my set-up. As I have plain old stereo (I prefer it) I can't comment on the qualities of the surround system. Extras are reasonable quality, but IMHO nothing terrifically exciting. There's the usual 'this is how we make a monster by a mixture of CG and animatronics', how brilliant everyone involved in the movie was to work with, etc. The 'alternate ending' [for those who still have more than two brain cells - they mean 'alternative ending'] is not v. special. Anyone expecting the two towers footage is in for a disappointment: Will Smith is seen feeling sorry for himself following the departure of the princess. To cheer him up, his fellow agents send him on a vacation, and he ends up in the world of the 'locker people'. I haven't tried the commentary. To be honest, I'm so *bored* with these (unless they're done by an impartial outsider like a film historian talking about a classic movie) that I no longer bother with them. If it's better than the run of the mill stuff, then please let me know. The movie itself improved on second viewing. [Apart from anything else, the first time I saw it at a cinema we nearly had our ears blasted out by the (way too loud) system]. If you were indifferent about the movie when you first saw it, then I'd say give it another chance - the second time round you'll probably pick up on a lot of jokes and things going on in the background you missed the first time. If you haven't seen it but liked Men in Black, then unless you're resistant to the idea of sequels then enjoy it. The novelty of the first one isn't there of course, but IMHO there are enough jokes to make it a pleasant viewing.
