Just saw the trailer for Doubt last night while I watched Blindness. I had no idea what this movie was about, but had heard several compliments about it. Now that I know what the actual subject matter is about, I'll rent it first.

I doubt I'll be buying this.

But will definitely try it on a rental.

Thanks for the review link. Great movie and will no DOUBT pick it up on first day. I think it was one of the best movies of 2008 and should have won some academy awards. Way better then those other films that won.

Re: Doubt - 4/7/09

This was a really strong movie... but replay value seems low to me. I'll probably want to own it but not until it has an awesome sale price. It wouldn't be worth it to me otherwise.

Re: Doubt - 4/7/09

Picked this up at Best Buy yesterday by price matching the $23.99 online price and using the $5 coupon.

Watched it last night - picture quality is great, and audio is better than I expected for a talky drama with mostly indoor settings. And oh yeah, the movie is excellent.

I'll be watching all the special features for this one. The commentary track is supposed to be really good.
