wouldn't be great if they released Atonement giftset with the soundtrack just like what they recently did with Pride & Prejudice? Atonement score was friggin' awsome.

I wish they'd rush release titles on Blu-ray. That's the only way I will ever own this one.

Goodie. Looks like I'll have to stop by Hollywood Video around that time and pick up a "used" copy...

That's just the sales artwork. The retail artwork is marginally (but not a lot!) better:

Meh, it's a bit better but I hate how studios are starting to put borders around box art nowadays.

i actually prefer this artwork versus the poster artwork. one the few times that's the case, but i do. probably will hold off on this until it's either really cheap or a possible re-release. i'm figuring this will happen seeing as it did for pride and prejudice.

Woo! I picked this up yesterday for $17 and it even came with a free paperback copy for the book, which was a good deal. It's only at Best Buy though if you want the book deal.

I was trying to find one w/o the book. I bought the book when the movie was released. That's something I don't need doubles of.

High Def Digest gave the HD-DVD a four and half star rating for video, but of the two times I've seen this in the theatre, the 35mm print looks exceedingly grainy, whether that was the intent, it sounds like it's less obvious in HiDef, how does it look on standard DVD?
