I like Tommy Lee Jones' mustache. It looks like they airbrushed his face too.

Wow. Is that date right? This is still out in theaters right now, isn't it? I can't wait to see it but couldn't find the time or anyone to go to the theater.

Can't wait for your review Dan as it's been getting glowing technical reviews all around so far.

Official Blu-Ray site reviewer Greg Maltz calls the BR release the "best picture ever authored for home video".

I already pre-ordered this in the UK so that I can get it on HD-DVD. Of course I hope this doesn't get cancelled.

Doesn't surprise me. I saw the movie last night and thought the print was one of the best I've ever seen in my life.

I'm not sure if it's POTC quality, but it's really, really good...watched my screener last night. The most disappointing thing is the amount of bonus material...three "fluff" pieces, and no director's commentary.

Yeah, but that's no shock because the Coen brothers aren't big on special editions. They've only done one commentary, for The Man Who Wasn't There in 2001.

Didn't they also do a "prank" commentary for the Blood Simple anniversary SE?

A McCarthy commentary would've been pretty great too (although as reclusive as he seems to be, we would've had a better chance of getting the Coens). Still anxiously awaiting the Blu-ray.

Damn, I always planned on getting the Blu-ray, but had no idea that the PQ was supposed to be so good. I'll be looking more forward to it, if that's possible.

Hey Shannon Nutt, I just saw your name on a blu-ray preview before watching Gone Baby Gone. Cool beans you're famous!

I wonder if they're going to revise the cover to include the Best Picture it took at the Oscars.

It has to be too late for that. They've probably already been pressed.

That'll be saved for the inevitable double dip "The Awards Edition".

This is just a great movie.

Does anyone know if the death of HD-DVD has cancelled any plans to release this movie in that format?

Update: I think I answered my own question via a Google search.

Jared over on the highdefdigest.com forums wrote the following:

In the United States, the rights are held by Miramax (thereby making this a Disney film), thus it is Blu-ray exclusive.

I wonder if the Weinsteins thought they were responsible for Miramax getting all those oscar nominations back when they were in charge.
