yes, 5.1! & the video transfer better be good.

the only thing i see the odd person complaining about is that the 1st dvd release had a full frame and widescreen option that this one might not have.

can't wait!

I bought it.

It's an awful transfer. A movie this great might deserve a double dip.

I paid $3.88 for the crappy version. Guess I can double-dip.

This one is worth it just to see all the Star Wars toys used in the movie.

Spielberg isn't messing with this one, is he? He's not adding any CGI or ewoks or anything, right?

classic!

don't forget about the poltergeist curse, if this dvd sucks everyone who helped make it will be dead!

im not a huge fan of commentarie's but being a huge fan of mr. Craig T. Nelson, i hope he is either doing a commentary track or there is an interview with him, it was sad to see the first season of coach dvd have not a one special feature.

HD! Thankfully all those Special Edition rumours that have been floating around for years held me off!

Just hope they include the scene when Stewie uses the echo from the other dimension to sing "In the Air Tonight."

Great news. Great movie. Tempted to pick up the complete collection once this arrives. Is the Poltergeist II and III two-pack the only release of those films?
