    This is good news, but I must say, I’m a little disappointed after reading this thread.
    I thought “with specs” meant that it was going to be in 3-D. [​IMG]

    The movie was OK, a little predictable, but it has one of my favorite acresses, so I did enjoy it. My copy shipped from a favored online supplier on the 19th, and I expect it either today, or Monday, depending on the volume of mail. I will post a review as soon as I get a chance to spin it up.

    Are you a Leelee fan or a Diane fan? For my money BOTH are very, very COOL!

    Have you seen 'Here On Earth' with Leelee in it? A mushy-tearlerker, but worth checking-out if your a fan. I'm amazed how 'haggard and drugged-up' the make-up people made Diane Lane look in this film. She really does look 'out-of-it'.

    No, I have not seen Here on Earth yet, although I did finally pick up the DVD the last week. It was in the used bin at a local dealer, at a price I could not resist.

    Yes, Diane did look quite out of it in the film.

    If anyone is interested, a certain Western Canadian Chain has this out already. Further clue, look at my signature.

    Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Kwaanza, and Festivus for the rest of us.

    Ok, after waiting ten days from notice of shipping, to notice of parcel arrival, I finally got it and spun it up on the computer last night. The transfer looks very sharp, nice colors that look accurate, and about what I remember of the film in the theater. I did not notice any compression artifacts, something that is thankfully rare these days in all but the cheapest whipped out releases, but I think I did notice some EE, I will have to go back and look at it again tonight.

    The audio is good, but I have not had the chance to listen to the commentary, other then the deleted scene. Which brings me to the extras, well, there is a deleted scene! Brief, selected filmographies of the cast, director and producer as well as the commentary(s) are included.

    The disk is single layered, dual sided, with the Widescreen (anamorphic) content on one side, and the Pan and Scan on the other side. Don't even bother with the P&S unless you really love watching a butcher job. The 2.35:1 aspect ratio is really the antithesis of P&S. Over all a good disc, not stellar, but a keeper if you are either a fan of Leelee, or enjoyed the movie.

    I agree that this is a great DVD. Superb picture and sound and excellent supplements.

    NOTE: There are also 'hidden' interviews with Leelee Sobieski, Diane Lane and Stellan Skarsgard in the respective 'filmographies' sections.

    Overall an atmospheric chiller on an excellent DVD. Definately recommended.

    Huh, OK. Now I will have to go back at it again. I didn't really check out the filmographies all that closely. Mainly because I use IMDB to find out what else someone has starred in. That an my DVD Profiler. [​IMG]
    I went back and checked out the scenes where I thought I had spotted some Edge Enhancement, and it looked clear, so overall, a very good transfer.

    Yeah, they are definately there. Leelee Sobieski and Diane Lane look much better in the interviews than they do in the film itself! Something to do with being terrorised and being drug-addled I guess.

    I can't believe Leelee is only 19!

    I also check IMDB.com for my filmography info. It's unbeatable. The filmographies on this DVD are career highlights only so all cast members have loads of film credits missing.

    I'm going to see 'Joy Ride' on Monday night. Any good?

    Also what is 'Uprising' like?

    Uprising was fantastic; I am eagerly waiting for my copy to arrive, as I missed about a quarter of the show when it was broadcast, thanks to schedule conflicts. The entire cast was well done, and pulled their weight. Leelee was terrific, IMHO, and her scene that is most talked about (a brief "nude" scene) was not gratuitous, but showed in a stark light the depravities the people were put though. She had a role with dignity and strength, and I was pleased that they cast her in it.

    Ron has a review up already, and I concur so far, with out having seen the DVD it’s self. Oh, I have not seen Joy Ride in the theater, and have decided to wait for the DVD rather then risk a pour, abused print.
