The Mist

The first time I've seen it. I watched the B&W version and it was fucking amazing. I'm still thinking about it three days later.

Edit: forgot, Iron Man BD as well.

AFAIK it's the same transfer from the previous edition.

It sure sounds like it's the same as the previous version. Taken from the review at highdef-

This Blu-ray double-dip is the disc we should have got the first time around -- the video and audio are the same (which ain't a bad thing).

American Psycho BD last night. Transfer was alright, the opening few minutes were poor.

Honestly, i've never seen it before this. But with the $10 off BB coupon, I just went with the new 2-disc version. I really really liked the movie, looked great, sounded pretty good. Another great blind buy.

Transfer was ridiculous. Audio was jaw-dropping. Extras were "eh". BD-Live was worthless.

Yes I agree it's a great movie.one reason I'm considering buying it on BD. IMO this is the best Bond movie(because of Craig's performance)
The 2-disc (SD) version I have now was only in DD, I believe the BD one is in TrueHD. IMO there is a difference with TrueHD and or DTS-HD/MA. Yes I have a $10 off coupon and thinking of getting Casino Royale with it but only if the transfer is a good one.
