    Wow, it looks loaded! Hope we get all that stuff here in the States!
    As for whether it's "good" or not, that's a diffucult question to answer. If you like the idea of unattractive middle-aged men singing "Like a Virgin" with dancers all around, I'm sure you'll love it. Hard movie to pin down.

    I have reservations about buying a PAL DVD for this musical movie because of the 4% speed up. That is the reason I decide against buying the R2 (Italy) PAL DVD for Evita and the R2 (France) PAL DVDs for some Fred Astaire musicals.

    BEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR. Couldn't recommend it more. Utterly brilliant. It sucked me in from frame one. Hilarious, moving, visionary. The biggest surprise is Ewan McGregor's singing voice. Phenomenal. Usually I don't like musicals, but Moulin Rouge is so ALIVE! Filmmakers have become so jaded these days, but every once in a while, a film comes along where you can tell that its creators just love making movies. Last year it was O Brother Where Art Thou, this year it's Moulin Rouge. Since it's coming to DVD soon, I guess Fox won't be doing another box office push for it, which is kinda sad. On the other hand, in the chat with FOX last month, the VP whose name escapes me said it's going to be a great DVD that you gotta play LOUD. I'll be cranking it to 11.

    This thread has made me curious to compare the U.S./Canadian region 1 disc content/specifications to Australia's.
    It's interesting that none of the U.S. online DVD sites that I deal with, have "Moulin Rouge" for pre-order to date, although the U.S./Canadian Region 1 disc is being released a month earlier - November 6.

    Those appeared to be the region 4 specs. There have been no specs for the region 1 disc as of yet. Peter and Baz have said that it will be a killer disc and Baz wants it to outdo Fight Club.
    I for one can't wait for an announcement. I saw this one 4 times theatrically and am seriously considering seeing it again at the only theater around here that is still playing it.
    I too would love this disc to have DTS as it was one awesome sounding mix theatrically

    According to what source is your November 6 release date from?
    To my knowledge, no OFFICIAL region 1 release date has been announced.

    As I suspected, that date is a rumor and not official.
    Thanks. [​IMG]

    Do I understand correctly (from other posts) that Moulin Rouge will also be released as part of a box set (with Romeo & Juliet and Strictly Ballroom) in Region 4? If so, when? Also, is Strictly Ballroom available individually outside of Region 2?
    Thanks a lot!

    I for one can't wait to get a load of the transfer on this thing! It should be reference material from all the colors and contrasts I saw on the trailer!
