Sold. The 2-disk sounds good. Look forward to hearing both commentary tracks.

I'm getting this one also.
I'm intrested in the historical special features.
We need more WWII movies, like the old days.

I saw this in theaters, but wasn't expecting much. Boy, was I wrong. Thought it was a very compelling movie and thought Cruise was awesome in the role. Makes the movie well worth the wait and I look forward to revisiting it on DVD.

Why getting the 2-Disc when the 1-Disc´er has the same Extras as the 2-Disc?

According to the OP, the 1-disc does not have any extras.

That doesn't make sense. That means MGM/Fox is going to make 1 single disc with the extras and 1 single disc without.

that's what everyone seems to be doing lately. the 2 disc has extras on the first disc but the single disc is not the same and is barebones. is one of the most idiotic ideas ever. why manufacture 3 different disc.

Yes, it's extra cost for them, which is strange since studios want to get by as cheaply as possible.

Fox did that before with Hitman and a couple other titles (can't recall which right now).


Also, the reason they're doing 3 different discs is because they know people will not spend the extra $6-7 for a digital copy...

Re: Valkyrie -- 5/19/09

This marketing scheme is shit for the birds. I am not paying for digital coasters and I sure as hell don't want barebones dvds. Boycott releases like this if you want them to change.

Id rather boycott DVD's like the Wrestler and Miracle at St. Anna that are movies I love but have little to no special features.
It shitty what they are doing bu making me pay more for special features but its nothing new and at least we get a release with two commentary tracks which i dont mind paying for.

So your priority list would be:

1. Features
2. Movie

correct?

Re: Valkyrie -- 5/19/09

I bought the DVD and just finished watching the movie this morning. I thought it was great. I know this is historically based but it's refreshing to watch a movie where the main character doesn't win. A lot of hollywood movies have the main character diving through a hail of bullets shooting down 10-20 adversaries while they can't hit the side of a barn with a machine gun. It's just refershing that a movie shows a bit of realism and not the typical hollywood bs.
This is what I was thinking as they were lining up the accused on the firing line to be executed.
