    There hasn't been one announced, but knowing Columbia, there will probably be a Superbit. They just can't help themselves. Has anyone else noticed a lower quality of regular Columbia releases since the introduction of Superbit? Makes you wonder ...

    James,

    For the simple fact that this is a CTS/Sony picture there is
    that slight possibility there will be a Superbit version down the road. For this fact alone, I will always hold out for the inevitable. I refuse to buy the first version when knowing there will be a superbit later.
    Just my .02 cents.

    later!

    I always wait at least 6 months on columbia titles unless it is a movie I don't mind double dipping on... and xxx isn't one of them.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see a superbit version either. Especially since Rob Cohan likes his movies loud and was not able to produce a DTS track for this version. I still bought this version though, at $14.99 its and impulse buy. [​IMG]

    I was silly enough to buy the DVD, I feel that superbit will not make this movie any better :)

    I am still holding on to my XXX dollars.

    A taiwanese forum had made a comparison on the video bit rate of the R3 and R1 release.
    R1 release looks slightly dimmer with lower bit rate than the R3 release...R3 release looks more high res...

    If you even think that you would like this movie {an updated 'Super Spy' {aka: an American James Bond for the '00 crowd }]

    If you are just waiting for the "Superbit" release then you might be missing out...

    My copy of x-X-x came with a coupon for a free movie from CTHE for only shipping cost.

    For me this breaks down to two action movies for less than $10 each.

    Audio is great.
    Video to me is disappointing.
    I'm glad I only rented it. I'd hate to think the studio is intentionally not doing a good transfer job to promote Superbit demand...

    I have to agree with Keith I that ALL of the bullet sounds are soft on this soundtrack. If others disagree, this is very strange indeed. Some dvds I own, gunfire is quite prominent in the mix (Last Man Standing, Resident Evil and Dirty Harry come to mind). The avalanche scene, however, was mega thunderous!
    As to the film: I thought it was fun...in an MTV meets Bond sort of way. [​IMG]

    I thought this movie was garbage, although entretaining the sequences of stunts and realistic scenarios were very questionable.

    How many times could I see that it was clearly not Vin D...shiza!

    Also, the avalanche part. DESTROYS EVERYTHING except that 'anorexic' tower....break me off a piece of that shat..


    I'd take Glitter over this.

    I've read the last post over and over and over... not sure if it was meant to read in Yoda, but I can't figure out what was meant to be said.[​IMG]
    If you are questioning the viability of these stunts, don't watch any James Bond movies; it may lead to your undoing.[​IMG]
    Anyway... movie reviews should be in the "Movies" thread. As far as the presentation review... those should be here...

    I'm doing a search on this forum for "Superbit" so I don't know if this was already posted somewhere else, BUT, Widescreen Review has a Superbit of XXX listed as a May release.
