    Hi gang,

    Just returned from DVD shopping, and while in Best Buy I noticed a National Geographic DVD about Pearl Harbor. It was narrated by Tom Brokaw. My question is this the same DVD included in the Pearl Harbor 60th anniversary gift set just released by Buena Vista??. If so, should I pick it up & wait for the Vista Series DC in May 2002.

    Second question, want to P/U The Fifth Element. Only saw original release on shelf. What I need to know is how it compares to the super bit release. And is the original release anamorphic?????

    Thanks--Joe

    Yes, the original release of TFE is Anamorphic. No extras at all though, just like the Superbit which includes a slammin' DTS track. Go for the Superbit if possible, you won't be losing any extras...

    The original 5E has a pan & scan version in addition to the widescreen.

    That probably doesn't matter to anyone, but it is a difference.

    The Superbit release also does not have the full-frame version of the film.

    Which is why I own the Superbit.

    But the transfer is a great anamorphic transefer. I usually see people mention they use this disc to demo thier system.
