    The Duellists is a very good movie, with some great characterizations, and some of the best sword fighting sequences ever put to film. I've been looking forward to this one for a while, and the specs look great. Thanks for sharing, Patrick.

    Also, I just noticed that the stated running time on the IMDB is 95 minutes, compared to 100 minutes on the dvd cover. I wonder if that is significant?

    I just wonder about the following : duelling featurette with Ridley Scott & Kevin Reynolds. Does this mean we get to see Robin Hood as well. This would be very distracting indeed.
    Anybody have an explanation for this ?

    I'm anxiously anticipating The Duellists, Ridley Scott's first and best film.

    Watched this last night and I must say, excellent job by Paramount. For a 25 year old film, they did a superb job with the transfer. The black level seems a bit on the washed out side and lacks some detail, but over all a great transfer. The dd 5.1 track is good, mainly center channel driven but that was to be expected. The soundtrack is very enveloping.
    Thank you Paramount!
